USA-CAN Showdown #2


Last night, the Home Depot Center Velodrome played host to some of North America's best track cyclists, as members of the Canadian and US National teams took to the boards in an exciting match sprint competition. Although Canadian riders made quick work of the Americans, the overall win went to guest racer Njisane Phillip from Trinidad and Tobago, with Travis Smith and Hugo Barrette of Canada rounding out the podium in second and third respectively.
