Michaela Drummond has won her first international omnium.  The Kiwi was the best of a field of 36 riders including compatriots Samantha Ogle, Olivia Ray and Nicole Shields; with Canada’s Allison Beveridge and Lina Mabel Rojas Zapata of Colombia taking second and third in the omnium event Fastest Woman on Wheels.

Right now the Cycling New Zealand sprint and endurance teams are embarking on their campaigns in the northern hemisphere summer that have them in various parts of America and Europe.  For Michaela Drummond, America has been a popular stomping ground, on the track with Cycling New Zealand and on the road for DNA Pro Cycling.

The fight for the win at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Pennsylvania saw Drummond end the Fastest Woman on Wheels omnium on 200 points to Allison Beveridge’s 180, with Zapata’s 160 enough to take third.

More to come . . .
