That THANK YOU was an hour ago when they beat GBR to qualify for the final :p

 

They were alright in qualifying, great in 1st round/quarter final and horrible (well, the start) in the final. Beating NZL would have been a near-impossible task, but now seeing NZL won gold in 44.0.....damn, they could definitely have beaten that if they had a normal start :(

No Büchli (Olympic silver) at the keirin tomorrow, because the federation, including the coach, were certain that his silver earned the Netherlands enough points for a keirin spot at the world champs and they barely sent anyone to World Cups (Büchli mostly rides in Japan). Now Büchli is only allowed to start if three athletes withdraw :facepalm:

 

Read the freaking rules :facepalm:

Canada :facepalm:

 

What's the point in two riders pushing forward when it's 3rd rider that counts?
