San Diegan Jennifer Valente was part of the four-member US women's team pursuit squad that won the gold medal Thursday at cycling's 2017 UCI Track World Championships in Hong Kong, less than a half- second faster than Australia.

"I am the youngest by quite a long way", said Dickinson.

The pint-sized "Pocket Rocketman" even had enough in the tank to perform a wheelie after storming the last lap to earn the applause of fans watching at the Hong Kong Velodrome on Thursday night. I've observed a group of people who have absolutely committed to what they're doing.

BRITISH champion cyclist and full-time medical student Lewis Oliva is gearing up for his first track world championships in Hong Kong this week.

"We're always talking about the next four years and what we're planning to do; we're always learning and progressing".

"I still made mistakes in that".

DeRozan has 33, Raptors even series
The Bucks are 4-6 ATS and 5-5 Over/Under in their last 10 games, and 4-1 ATS and 2-3 Over/Under in their last 5 road games. They were no longer the 50% three-point shooting team that looked locked in and ready to take down the No 3 seeded Raps.

Ryan Owens was taken as a reserve to Rio, before he had ever been selected for a senior world championships, such was the potential after just nine months on the programme.

Australia were denied a double pursuit success, though, as United States won a narrow women's race to defend the title they won a year ago.

"My aim for the world championships is just to perform as best as I can in the sprint", he said. "I keep trying, I never give up because I know if I keep trying hard, one day it's going to be my time", said the Olympic bronze medallist. I wanted to peak for it and I didn't.

"It's my first time at the worlds but it's not that "anythings a bonus" - I want to go to win, or to at least get on the podium". At last year's European championships near Paris he took the silver.

"It would've been not unexpected for them to come here a little bit reserved, a little bit reticent nearly, bearing in mind the level of public criticism there's been over British Cycling over recent months".

Dawkins retaining his world champion status in the men's team sprint is yet another feather in Southland's cycling cap in what has been a golden decade or so for the sport.

International Olympic Committee officials were in Hong Kong, with a particular eye on the Madison disciplines.

"But I think there's a way we can do that in which we put the person first".

Australia were ahead by 0.412 seconds going into the final lap, but an inspired effort from Dygert pulled the Americans over the line with a 0.417 second margin of victory, while New Zealand took bronze over Italy.

"It will be a bit of a new challenge for me", she said.

And the Cardiff-born star was determined to prevail in the 100-lap points race, which featured 10 sprints, on Sunday's final day of the competition after also finishing second in the scratch race on Wednesday's opening day.

It features a 20MP + 8MP camera setup on the front for capturing high quality selfies along with the wide-angle view. The device looks a tad similar to its elder sibling, the V5 Plus, which again resembles a lot to the Apple iPhone 7.
