Wednesday, August 19 2015
From as early as 4:00am (T&T Time) on Thursday morning, young Sei Daniel will line up in Heat #3 of the Men’s Keirin at the UCI Junior World Track Cycling Championships. The event hosted in the Kazkh capital of Astana, will see 37 cyclists from all over the world line up for the Men’s Keirin.
Daniel will face stiff competition in his heat from Jiri Janosek (CZE), Michal Lewandowski (POL), Melvin Landerneau (FRA), Ayrton De Pauw (BEL) and Danilo Magnoni (ARG) with the winner of each heat advancing to the second round. All other cyclists will have to face off in the repechage in order to gain a qualification spot into the next round.
Then at approximately 7:00am (T&T Time), Kollyn St. George will face the starter as she places her machine into the starting gate for the 500m Time Trial. St. George will attempt her 500m effort as the 20th of 27th entrants from 18 countries. The reigning Pan American champion and Junior Pan American record holder in the 500m Time Trial, St. George will in no doubt be one of the favourites along with Courtney Field (AUS), Yuli Verduo (MEX) and Emma Hinze (GER).
