Lauren Bell National Champs

SCOTTISH sprint cyclist, Lauren Bell, claimed two new records for Scotland this weekend at the National Track Championships in Manchester.

The 20 year-old Via Sponsorship athlete from Forres claimed two, new Scottish records for her 500m time trial and flying 200m run.

Bell won the 500m time trial gold and team sprint bronze, taking her overall weekend medal haul to four.

Lauren said: “It was an incredible weekend, with my main focus for the weekend being the team sprint on Sunday where I focussed on my individual lap, targeting a 19.15, which I managed to exceed with a 19.079.

“I’ve now got two weeks off training but this competition has been so successful that I’m really looking forward to getting back to training and seeing what’s to come for the rest of the year.”
