In one of my favorite track events the blistering Team Sprint where three riders teams are pitted in pursuit style, with the first two riders sacrificing themselves in an all out effort to maintain a delicate balance of speed without dropping their finish rider the Cuban troika of Lopez, Herrera and Cartay split hairs (only one second) with Canada for the gold. The United States added another Bronze to the Norte Americanos count.

TEAM SPRINT SQUAD GIVES U.S. TENTH PAN AM MEDAL

Alfred, Belz, Blatchford Ride to Bronze, Road Races to Conclude Championsh
ips

The trio of Stephen Alfred (Capitola, Calif.), Kevin Belz (Irving, Texas), and Michael Blatchford (Cypress, Calif.) gave the United States their tenth medal of the Pan American Championships this afternoon with a third place effort in the team sprint. 
In the only action for U.S. competitors today, the threesome began the day by qualifying third with a time of 47.6825 seconds.  Canada earned the top seed, riding a 47.474 and Cuba posted the second fastest qualifying time of 47.551. 
As Canada and Cuba headed to the gold medal final, the United States faced Colombia in the consolation round for the bronze. In the ensuing rounds, the U.S. clocked a 47.744 to best the Colombians’ time of 48.048 while Cuba secured the gold over Canada.
The United States’ ten medals lead the overall medal tally.  Host country Argentina and Colombia each have nine.  The 2005 Pan American Championships conclude this weekend with the elite men’s and women’s road race events.
In the women’s road race, the U.S. boasts a strong five-woman squad that features 2004 Olympians Christine Thorburn (Menlo Park, Calif.), Kristin Armstrong (Boise, Idaho) and Erin Mirabella (La Habra, Calif.).  Already, the three women share four medals among them.  Armstrong claimed a gold medal earlier in the week in the individual time trial and a silver medal in the individual pursuit, Thorburn rode to a silver medal in the time trial, and Mirabella claimed a bronze in the individual pursuit.
Also competing in the women’s road race is three-time USCF Elite National Criterium Champion, Tina Pic (Dahlonega, Ga.) and 2000 national criterium champion Laura Van Gilder (Pocono Pines, Pa.).  The two veteran speedsters will give the U.S. two strong cards to play should the race end in a mass field sprint.

In the men’s road race, the U.S. fields just one rider, Joe Papp (Pittsburgh, Pa.).
