Which events are they dominating? It's definitely a sport where - especially in terms of juniors - I wouldn't look too much at rankings, like in mountainbiking.

Well as per the UCI junior ranking they are number 1 in the rankings in both men and women kieren and sprint and team sprints . ... That's 6 out of the 12 events on the Olympic

I mean, which events/competitions are they dominating? Anything worldwide, or mostly just local or something? UCI rankings don't always mean a whole lot.

Have you forgot that India won a team sprint gold and a keirin bronze at the last year's junior WCh?

No I have not, I didn't mean to say they're not doing good :d Only to exercise caution in basing too much off of the UCI rankings.

... These were some of the highlight events - medals in the Junior World champs...... Also I think they have won several medals in the asian championship and Asia cup......... Also certain classification events in Europe 

 

How significant are these ..... Must admit to not following cycling closely

Of course track cyclists couldn't train normally neither lately, nowadays they've been allowed to train on the track again but with one rider at a time. Jeffrey Hoogland, one of the world's top-2 sprinters, has made some dumb statements about the past few weeks and his training methods: "I went on the road with my track bike, had to do something right? There were almost a few crashes...sure, people in their cars didn't expect a cyclist coming at them with 60 km/h, haha."

 

Detail: track bikes have no brakes. What a fucking idiot, who cares if he risks his own life, but he really had to risk everyone else's? How would the life have been of someone who'd have hit and killed him because he (logically) didn't expect some dude on a bike without a brake racing out of a street with 60 km/h?
