Men's sprint

Men's sprint qualifying and 1/16 finals

By Mal Sawford in Bordeaux

On another cool morning at the Bordeaux velodrome, the world's fastest sprinters posted some very impressive times, with the top six all under 10.2 seconds. Fastest of all was 2004 world champion Theo Bos, in 10.100 seconds; but at the other end of the scale was 2005 champion Rene Wolff who recorded the slowest time of all, 11.001. With a mammoth 43 starters, the top 24 progressed through to the 1/16 finals, and apart from Wolff, all the favourites advanced.

The 1/16 finals generally saw the fastest seeded rider advance, the only exception was the defeat of French team sprint star, Gregory Bauge, who was beaten by Italian veteran Roberto Chiappa, much to the disgust of the vocal French crowd. Chiappa seemed to thrive on the crowd's disappointment, however, and let everyone know he was the number one rider on the track.
