Frenchman Arnaud Tournant meets Australia's Jobie Dajka in a repeat of their 2002 men's sprint semifinal tomorrow. Tournant beat Jens Fiedler in three rounds after the German was relegated in race two for not holding his line during the last 200m. Dajka beat Spain's Jose Antonio Villanueva Trinidad in two races.

Tournant's teammate, Laurent Gane, beat Ross Edgar of Great Britain in straight races to set up a meeting with German Rene Wolff, who also beat his opponent, Takashi Kaneko of Japan, in two.

Finals - Gane gains again

By Valkerie Mangnall in Stuttgart

France's Laurent Gane took the upper hand in his rivalry with Australia's Jobie Dajka today, adding the men's sprint title to the world keirin crown he won earlier in this year's world track cycling championships. The pair had spent much of the year fighting it out on the Japanese keirin circuit, where Dajka came out on top with three wins to Gane's one.

After Dajka was forced to settle for silver behind Gane in Thursday night's keirin, the duo again found themselves head-to-head in the sprint gold medal ride.

Dajka won the first heat, coming round Gane in the straight to claim a narrow victory in 10.433 seconds. "Definitely the first race in the final was my hardest race in the world championships here," Gane said. "The first race I simply wasn't fast enough. I waited too long and against an opponent such as Jobie, that came back on me. I'm pleased even more that I got through in the end."

The Frenchman was too good in the following two heats. "Basically whoever drew the front stayed there and whoever was behind had the advantage for sure but he was absolute class, he had really good legs and at the end of the day he was just too good for me," Dajka said.

German Rene Wolff beat Frenchman Arnaud Tournant in straight heats to take the bronze medal.
