Track Cycling at the European Championships 2022

Sensational time for Emma Hinze in the 500m time trial qualifiers at the European track cycling championships. Last time anyone posted a sub-33 in a WCh final was in 2016 (Voinova 32,9) and she just threw down a 32,732 seconds. Far ahead of the rest, obviously.

Wow, this mini track is really bad for sprint racing...


Curious how European Championships in track cycling no longer get their thread.

It definitely favours riders with endurance, rather than short burst speed.

Surely the UCI will be changing the rules after this. This mini track is savage.

Might be worth noting here that the velodrome at the UCI World Cycling Centre in Aigle (SUI) is 200m.
 

I haven’t watched any of the track cycling yet, so I don’t how the track in Munich behaves. I just thought it was a factoid worth sharing in this instance.

We just had three massive crashes in the first few laps of an elimination race. Track damaged, race suspended until further notice.

The GB male sprinters have been quite successful today but they're really hating the track in their interviews.
