It seems like a silly rule - why not have a specific point on the track rather than a variable time when the bike might or might not come off?

I is a specific point. 2,5 laps before the finish. There is a white line. Your front wheel can't cross that line before the derny has fully passed it.

Rules don't apply for British cyclists?
- Froome can run and gets the time of other riders
- Cavendish can slam someone out of an event
- Arminstead can miss 3 doping tests
- Kenny can pass the derny

there are a lot of bitter pointless twats on here. if jason kenny is winning because he is juiced, why is he so teeny tiny? i'll give you a lot of others but a sport that involves muscle mass being won by someone with such a different body shape, maybe its not just drugs?
Yep's it not just the drugs. It's also the fact that rules seem to be completely different for British cyclists.
100% he should have been dq'd. however, when it was a fair race he beat a bunch of giants. also the house of Kenny and Trott is now in the top 10 in the medal table.
 
It's a real shame at least one more endurance event/bunch race isn't allowed into the Olympic programme. The Points race and Scratch race make for much more aggressive and entertaining riding when they aren't part of a multi-event competition like in the omnium.

This. The Keirin, Team Sprint and Individual Sprint are all basically the same race. Is it a surprise the best sprinter won all three? The velodrome action really misses a 250 lap points race and/or Madison.
