Day 1 - June 16

Men's 1,000 m time trial

French reigning world champion, Arnaud Tournant, 22, who after more than a year of trying eclipsed the world record of 28 year old Australian Shane Kelly. Tournant's time of 1m00.148sec shaved .465sec from the time set by Kelly at the World Titles in Bogota Colombia in September, 1995. Kelly's time was ridden at 2400m altitude on a 250 metre concrete outdoor track and Tournant's at 1800m altitude on a 333 metre concrete outdoor track.

In second place, setting a personal best time was 18 year old Australian, Ben Kersten, who rode 1.02.048 (58.02 km/h) to shave nearly two seconds off his previous best, set at the Australian titles this year. Kersten was ahead of Tournant in the first 150 metre split and close to the Frenchman's time until the halfway mark of the three lap race when Tournant increased his pace. Tournant collapsed after his ride and received treatment from on site medical crews as the effects of altitude took their toll.

Men's points race

Zuijderwijk (Ned) went off the front alone early to win the first sprint. Steinweg (Ger), Risi (Swi) and Carney (USA) bridged, with Risi taking the 2nd sprint. The break failed, but Steinweg attacked again, inspiring Carney, Martinez (Mex) and Capelle (Fra) to chase through the 3rd sprint, catching before the 4th, which Carney won after which the foursome was caught. Now Gabriel Curuchet (Arg) and Baffi (Ita) went off as a pair, splitting the next four sprints and gaining almost 2/3 of a lap at one point. Once their break was caught, the winning move went, with Steinweg, Gilmore (Bel) who'd accumulated a few points already from the field, and Zuijderwijk. This trio gained a lap after three sprints; at this point, with 4 sprints remaining, Zuijderwijk and Steinweg were tied with 19, while Gilmore was close at 16.

After the briefest of rests, Steinweg went off again, and when the lapmates failed to respond immediately, Carney bridged. This duo traded the next two sprint wins and were caught coming into the bell of the penultimate sprint, won by Baffi who thereby took a nearly unassailable lead amongst those down a lap. Capelle promptly went off the front and stayed away easily to win the final sprint, with Gilmore taking 2nd to fall just short of Steinweg's total. It didn't matter though, as both Steinweg and Risi had been caught creating handslings (off other riders, rather than Risi to benefit Steinweg) and were summarily disqualified.

Thus, Gilmore won at 25 pts over Zuijderwijk at 19, with Baffi completing the podium at 25 points.
