Sarah Hammer

Sarah Hammer wins seventh World Championship title in dominating style.

After a loss in the team pursuit gold medal round the day before, Hammer was determined to defend her 2013 Omnium title and took home the gold at the 2014 UCI Track World Championships in Cali, Colombia.

“It’s amazing to be able to replicate last year,” said Hammer. “Anytime you’re a world champion you have a huge target on your back. Everybody’s lifted their game, especially Laura Trott (GBR). She kept pressure on me the whole time. I had to bring my ‘A game’ in everything. I knew I was physically prepared, but the omnium is a battle of the mind and the body, so you have to have great execution on every single event, and I feel like I had success at that the last two days.”    

Women’s Omnium

1. Sarah Hammer (USA) (Colorado Springs, Colo./TWENTY16 Pro Cycling) 14 points
2. Laura Trott (GBR) 20 points
3. Annette Edmondson (AUS) 24 points  

Hammer will take a break from the bike and then return to race the road with her TWENTY16 teammates, a reunion of sorts with former T-Mobile athletes, Dotsie Bausch, Kristin Armstrong and Mari Holden.
