Just found the rules: 

3.2.140 In the case when one or more riders pass the back wheel of the pacer before he leaves the track, the race will be stopped and rerun without the rider(s) at fault, which will be disqualified.

I guess the discussion is what they mean by passing the back wheel, but when stopping the race, the riders should have been disqualified.

And now I read a lot of comments about the pacer leaving the track too late.

O.K. So i found out exactly what happened in the keirin final.

It proved impossible to disqualify anybody for overtaking the derny  because the UCI had not installed a camera on the line where the derny pulls off,

The only camera angle were head on or slightly at an angle to the line and neither could not be used to determine exactly who had broken the rules.

Big mess by the UCI

Yeah, good work by the organizers and of course it was completely obvious that Kenny overtook the Derny first. I am absolutely not surprised that neither Kenny nor Cavendish got disqualified. I think british riders would have to kill someone on track to get disqualied, it was the same joke in mens team sprint 4 years ago.

Honestly from the angles I saw I couldn't tell which of Kenny or Awang should have been disqualified.

At least this time it didn't end with someone in the hospital. Thank goodness for small favors and all that.
