The first round of the UCI Track Champions League, which took place in the Veldrom Illes Balears for the second year in a row, brought together the top 72 track cyclists on the planet in an evening with a notable fan presence. This brought the best track cycling on the planet back to Mallorca. The overall long-distance leaders are Mark Stewart from the United Kingdom and Jennifer Valente from the United States, with Sebastián Mora and Sencelles resident Anita Yvonne Stenberg in third and second place, respectively, and Tania Calvo in fifth.
The highlights of the scratch competitions were the second-place finishes achieved by Sebastian Mora and Tania Calvo. Stewart and fellow countrywoman Katie Archibald led the scratch competition. After eliminations, Mathias Guillemette of France and Anita Stenberg of Norway were at the top of the leaderboard, but Katie Archibald’s early start was the highlight of the competition. There were no shocks in the men’s keirin, as Dutchman Harrie Lavreysen triumphed over Germany’s Stefan Botticher and Australia’s Matthew Richardson. Sprinting rivals Lavreysen and Richardson faced off in the final, with the Australian coming out on top to the surprise of the defending world champion. Lavreysen still leaves Mallorca as the overall sprinting leader in the classification, though, ahead of Richardson and Botticher.
In the women’s sprint, Colombia’s Martha Bayona unexpectedly won the keirin, defeating competitors Kelsey Mitchell of Canada and Lea Friedrich of Germany. Helena Casas finished sixth. Frenchwoman Mathilde Gros defeated Dutchwoman Hetty van de Wouw in the sprint’s championship race. In this way, Olena Starikova of Ukraine and Shane Braspennincx of the Netherlands tie for first place in a very close classification. The 2021 event was a huge success in terms of communication as well as in terms of the number of viewers on television and in the velodrome. The Palma Velodrome had a capacity of 3,500 last year, which is expected to be surpassed on this coming Saturday. At the time, this number was the maximum permitted due to health restrictions. In terms of media coverage, the UCI Track Champions League debut in Mallorca produced roughly 2.3 billion impacts and more than 16 million euros in media value. In terms of television viewers, 8.7 million people tuned in to Eurosport, which translates to a media value of more than 14 million euros. This is based on 30 hours of coverage of the Palma round in 54 different countries and more than 20 different languages.
