Russia’s Daria Shmeleva, 500m TT world champion from a year ago, rounded out the top 4 who go straight through to the 1/8 finals. Places 5 to 28 go through to the 1/16 finals.

1/16 Finals

Degrendele beats Marchant in heat 11

There were no great surprises in the 1/16 finals. Perhaps the only notable non-qualifiers were 2016 Olympic Bronze medallist Katy Marchant, who was knocked out by Nicky Degrendele from Belgium, and Lithuanian Migle Marozaite, who lost out to Madalyn Godby from the USA.

Men

Keirin

Round 1

Glaetzer’s Kilo speed comes in handy in the Keirin

The first outing for the Men’s Keirin saw many of the favourites easily progress to the second round. Australian Matthew Glaetzer in particular looked very dominant, winning by 0.160. Last year’s world champion Azizulhasni Awang from Malaysia failed to qualify, and would have to try his hand again in the repechages.

Round 1 Repechages

Yuta Wakimoto from Japan wins his Round 1 Repechage

Francois Pervis (FRA), Sam Webster (NZL) and Ed Dawkins (NZL) were all amongst the riders who failed to capitalise on the repechages. 2017 world champion Awang from Malaysia still couldn’t get back to his form of last year and he was promptly ejected from the competition. Hugo Barrette from Canada put in a particularly strong performance to qualify for the second round, despite only coming third in his round 1 heat.
