13.15 – NEWTON OUT!
Chris Newton failed to qualify for tonight’s points race. Newton is a former world champion in this race and this is a big disappointment for the British team. He finished in last place with just four points after many of the riders gained laps (and with them 20 points).
13.11 – lots of riders taking laps
It’s an edgy points race. Newton has scored but he’s currently in danger of going out if he doesn’t score more.
12.59 – Newton on track in points qualifier
Britain’s Chris Newton is now on the track in the second qualifier for this evening’s points race.
12.16 – Shuang Guo through to women’s final
Pendleton will face Shuang Guo of China in the final of the women’s sprint later this evening. The Brit has looked untroubled so far but it’s going to be a tough final.
12.11 – Edgar wins through to quarters
Ross Edgar beats Spaniard José Antonio Raimondez Escuredo, and silences the partisan crowd. He’s through to the quarter finals along with Craig MacLean.
12.01 – Craig MacLean beats Tournant
Craig MacLean is looking good, beating six time world champion Arnaud Tournant in their 1/8 sprint final. The Brit will be wanting to at least repeat his silver medal of last year. There’s a long way to go, but moral couldn’t be better in the British camp.
11.49 – Bos back on form
In a rematch of the sprint final in Athens, Dutchman Theo Bos is paired against Ryan Bayley of Australiain the 1/8 sprint final. Bos reverses the result, winning this one, he’s too fast for Bayley who sits up inside the last 100m.
11.47 – Pendleton safely through to final
Victoria Pendleton beats Cuban Lisandra Guerra Rodriguez 2-0 to go to in to the final, where she’s assured of at least a silver medal. The British sprinter used the same tactics; staying high up the track as her opponent lead and built up her speed. Pendleton then dropped down and came round her in the last 50 metres. Looks like consultant sprint coach Jan Van Eijden has got the tactics spot on once again.
11.32 – Tim Veldt doesn’t contest sprint
Dutch rider Tim Veldt just rides round the track behind Italian Roberto Chiappa, and doesn’t contest the sprint. The Italian looks as perplexed as everyone in the stands. Veldt doesn’t seem to have a technical problem. The result stands, Chiappa goes through.
11.21 – Edgar beats Crampton
Unluckily for the Brits, they’re drawn together in the first round of the sprint due to their position in qualifying. Ross Edgar is on great form and was too fast for Matt Crampton who couldn’t come round his compatriot.
11.11 – MacLean safely through
Scot Craig MacLean beats German Michael Seidenbecher in the first round of the sprint.
10.59 – Pendleton takes first round
Victoria Pendleton looks too fast for the Cuban Lisandra Guerra Rodriguez and beats her in their first semi final sprint. It’s best of three so they’ll be back on the track later.
10.52 – MacLean third fastest
Craig MacLean makes it three Brits in to the final 24 (two in the top six) by qualifying in 10.1(full time tbc).
10.49 – Ross Edgar follows Crampton through to sprint rounds
After his bronze in the Keirin last night, Ross Edgar sets the second fastest time in the 200m. His time of 10.191 seconds is only slower than Gregory Bauge of France. Still riders to qualify.
10.29 – Matt Crampton posts time for 200m tt
Young British sprinter sets a time of 10.431 in sprint qualifying, it’s the fourth best time at the moment and sees him comfortably through to the 1/16 finals, even with several riders still to go.
10.00 – Morning session kicks off
Today’s morning session includes men’s sprint qualifying, women’s sprint semi-finals and the qualifiers for the women’s scratch and men’s points race.
