keirin racing tactics?

i've been watching a lot of keirin videos and it looks like in some races during the bell lap a rider will break early in order to pull another rider round then dip into the cote d'azur to propel that guy through to win, falling himself all the way back to last in some cases.

since keirin racing's not a team sport what advantage is there to that tactic? it's also alluded to in the josiah ng keirin school account, but not explained at all. can somebody tell me?

I would sumise that...

Although it is not a "team" race you still have protected riders that may have reached deals, such as, in the Josiah keiren account...

But, many keirens stateside consist of multiple members of the same team...heck look at the famous video of the assault at T-Town from this past summer....that entire race was set up by a teammate...

Just a stab at it...

It's not a bike race unless there is a 'joke' going on.

Ha Ha. I never warranted it, I never rode further back than 100m on the track.

Even B and C grade at Glenview Crescent have their little jokes going every week!
