Bayley was then in a three way tie for 1st place, with Evan Burtnik from Alberta and Thierry Kirouac-Marcassa from Quebec, after the second Omnium event: the Individual Pursuit.
Bayley earned the WIN in the Elimination Race, after he and the Junior Men put on quite a show!
What a crazy fast, amazing, exciting race it was to finish off Day One of the Omnium! The Elimination Race is a very challenging, high speed, quick thinking kind of race, as the rider with the last wheel crossing the finish line is eliminated every second lap on a sprint!
