Well probably the most controversial thing about the Keirin at this World Cup was…the Electric Derny, which was not that new for us as we have used a electric derny in our Keirin at Herne Hill Velodrome, I’m sure there will be traditionalists who will hate it, but to be honest I never noticed any difference (asking for trouble now)
Round Two – Race One; Pretty straight forward win for the World Cup Leader Gou Shuang (China) from Sze Wai Lee (Hong Kong) and Hyejin Lee (Korea)
Round Two – Race Two; All was going well until a big crash which amazingly only saw one girl come down French rider Olivia Montauban sliding past the photographers as they leapt out of the way, thankfully she was fine and walked away to battle again, Kristina Vogel (Germany) took the win with Tianshi Zhong (China) and Ekaterina Gnidenko (Russian) joining her in the final.
Final Seven To Twelve; Cracking race with Montauban straight back into the action but no one could stop the sprint from Simona Krupeckaite (Lithuania) not even Anna Meares (Australia)
Final One To Six; Another close race but in the final straight the World Cup Leader Shuang Guo powered her way to the win.
” My English is a bit better now, I love this place its the first time iI have been back since the Olympics the noise the crowd make is amazing, I think I was a bit lucky today but I’m very happy with the win”
