Thursday's live coverage>>>


Germany's Max Levy won the Keirin final from Francois Pervis and Teun Mulder, with the British pair Matt Crampton and Ross Edgar missing out on the medals.

The three British competitors initially made heavy weather of it. Jason Kenny, Crampton and Edgar all finished outside the top two in their first round races, and had to rely on the repechage.

With Crampton and Kenny drawn in the same repechage heat, and only one place in the second round up for grabs, one British rider was sure to be eliminated.

Crampton got through with a powerful surge, pipping Kenny on the line. Edgar also won his heat.

Crampton was again impressive in the second round, losing out narrowly to Pervis. Edgar also got through.

In the final, Edgar looked like he had the legs, but mistimed his move and although both British riders were well in contention on the last lap, they faded and were overtaken by Levy, Pervis and Mulder.
