On the tail of a silver medal in the individual pursuit at USAC Masters Track Nationals, Jack Kelso traveled to Manchester England to compete in the Masters Track World Championships. First up on the agenda was the team sprint. Jack had been suffering with a bad case of the flu the few days before boarding the plane, but he gutted it out and he and his USA teammates rode very strongly to take the bronze medal. With a couple more days to recover from his illness, he then prepped for the team pursuit. Team USA rode a strong race, but came up against a well drilled Danish team and ended up with a well-deserved silver medal. On the final day, the week of racing, and the several days off due to the pre-race illness probably caught up to Jack. He rode valiantly in the individual pursuit, but didn't make the finals. All in all though, a very satisfying World Championships that resulted in two medals.
