Nick Wammes of Bothwell won multiple medals at the 2019 Canadian Track Championships (Elite/Master) in Milton, Ontario over the weekend.

Wammes opened the National Championships winning silver in the one-kilometre time trial with a time of 1:02.474.

He followed that up with a gold medal in the team sprint along with teammates James Hedgcock and Je’land Sydney.

Wammes also won individual gold in the men’s keirin and match sprint. In the sprint, he edged Joel Archambault in the final, and in the keirin he beat Ontario teammate Je’land Sydney.

“It’s been quite the journey in the last eight months, with my first world cup in New Zealand in January, and a long summer of racing starting in TTown and then at the Pan Am Games and Pan Am Championships,” explained Wammes.

“It’s pretty crazy to think that last year I was barely getting on the podium at nationals and this year I won three Elite titles. My big goal for the weekend was to win the Individual Sprint so to win the Keirin and Team Sprint on top of that is pretty crazy. I’m so happy with my performances this weekend and it’s a great way to start the season.”
