Pursuit Win for Trio
New Zealand’s women — Rushlee Buchanan, Kaytee Boyd and Jaime Nielsen — took gold in the pursuit event in Beijing to strengthen their position at the top of the World Cup rankings. The New Zealanders, on 32 points, now lead Australia by seven points, with Canada third in the overall standings. “I would give us 6.5 out of 1,” Boyd said. “It was not our best performance time-wise, but the track here in Beijing was pretty cold. We will take the win but we still need to keep pushing forward.” The next and final round will be held in Manchester in February.
