Specialized-lululemon’s Gillian Carleton hit the track last week for the World Cup in Mexico. She and her Canadian team mates won the team pursuit, Carleton won the individual pursuit leg of the omnium, and she finished fourth in the omnium. Sarah Hammer won the omnium.
Carleton will ride her first full season on the road this season, after winning a bronze medal in the team pursuit in London. From Victoria, BC, Carleton got her start playing bikes with alley cat races, that mad crazy game of racing single speeds through city streets.
