Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
Right...and can you qualify this remark taking into consideration six-day events are all Madisons? These are HUGE events, with many, many spectators...velodromer said:I think the madison could be eliminated along with the points race and no one but the riders would care very much. When the only people who can keep track of the results are the judges (as is the case in the points race most of the time), the crowd isn't going to be very engaged.
Indeed...i don't really understand why there had to be a 'sacrifice'...it uses the same facilities, and can be completed relatively quickly...not to mention track events are often the most-watched, and among the most spectator-friendly...lookkg386 said:The Kilo made way for BMX, how was that recieved as a first up olympic sport?
While the IOC required the UCI to remove an event, it was up to the UCI as to which one. The UCI deliberately chose the kilo/500 I'd say for precisely that reason.pmsc111 said:That the IOC forced the UCI to sacrifice a track event makes no sense. Removing the Kilo does NOT reduce the number of competitors. They also reduced the opportunities for female riders which is odd considering the IOC's quest for parity between the sexes.

Craigee said:The Manchester World Cup was very good racing. The sprinters times were really impressive. Glaetzer would have to be red hot favourite to win the Kilo at the Commonwealth Games next year after that.

Glaetzer must be favourite for most of the sprint events at the CGs. 9.6 sprint. 59.7 kilo. 4th in the kierin shortly after his second kilo of the day. Wow!
Anyone in favour of a qualifying round for the kilo? Apart from anything else the times seem to be always slower in the final which is something of an anti climax.
