The brand new velodrome in Newport, South Wales, hosted the European Derny championship on Friday 14 November as part of a gala opening race meeting that featured many of Europe's top track riders.

A glut of entries for the Derny title meant that the start of the race meeting had to be brought forward to allow time for two heats to be run, the fastest three riders from each heat going through to the final, along with the fastest of the two fourth place riders.

The first heat was won by Rob Slippens, from Brad Wiggins and Steven De Neef. Heat two saw Walter van Mechelen win from Marco Villa, with Patrick Kops in third place. Mario Vonhof was the fastest fourth-place man, to make up the field in the final.

The final of the European Derny Championship was dominated from start to finish by Britain's reigning world pursuit champion, Bradley Wiggins. Paced by Joop Zijlaard, Wiggins looked comfortable and relaxed from start to finish. Second place went to Belgium's Steven De Neef, with the Netherlands' Rob Slippens in third place.
