Tasmania’s Georgia Baker finished the 500m time trial in 36.524secs for second fastest and completed the event’s penultimate event, the flying lap, in the third fastest time of 14.836secs.
Heading in to the points race with an eight point to New Zealand’s Kirstie James, and there was to be no denying Baker gold as she won seven of the ten sprints and picked up points in another to seal victory with 230 points. James settled for silver.
“I’m really happy to get another win today in the omnium,” Baker said. “It was a very heavy schedule but I felt good considering.
“I’m looking forward to having a few days easy before resuming my training coming into the track season.”
Earlier in the week Georgia Baker proved too strong for Macey Stewart in an all Tasmanian final in the women’s individual pursuit. Baker took the gold in 3mins 42.188secs to Stewart’s 3mins 49.467secs. Bronze went to Hannah Van Kampen of New Zealand in 3mins 48.406secs.
“I’m happy to have had the opportunity to get a pursuit under my belt in race conditions early in the season, said Baker. “You never know how you are going to go when you haven’t ridden an IP in a while but I got a lot of positives out of my ride and I am happy with the result.”
