World Track Championships - CM

Melbourne, Australia, May 26-30, 2004

Event program and results    First round     Repechages    Second round    Finals


May 28, 2004: The first round of the men's keirin is scheduled for Friday morning. Click here for the start list.

The big engines were back in action at Vodafone Arena during the morning/afternoon session, with four heats of seven riders contesting the first round of the Menís Kierin. Most of the favorites went straight through to the second round, but 2002 World Champion Jobie Dajka had to wait for a second chance in the repecharge round.

The repechages saw some of the favourites miss out, but the crowd did not miss out on some hot action from the second round, where a protest from Shane Kelly was lodged (see report).

Then the finals brought the crowd to its feet with some thrilling riding as the big men pushed each other to the limit.
