Men’s  Keirin 

Round 1

The first round saw many top riders not qualify and have to race in the repechage later on in the day. British riders Skinner, Hindes and Olivia all failed to place in the top three meaning that they will have to win their repechage to progress to the next round. Glaetzer showed why he is one of the top male sprinters in the world by winning his early heat with confidence.
