    Which WR's will go in Mexico this weekend?

    So the 2nd round of the World Cup rolls into Aguascalientes Mexico, and it looks like it'll be a fast one, if last years competition is anything to go by.

    I've got a feeling it'll be WR central, even though we're not at the season finale World Champs.

    Men's 200, Women's 200, Men's and Women's Team Sprint, Womens Team Pursuit and the Kilo are all in danger.

    The one I'd most like see go is the kilo, especially if Pervis is in any kind of form, as the ride he did at worlds last year was stunning, a repeat of that at altitude has got to put him in reach of Tournant's mark of 58.875.

    We could see the first sub 17second opening lap in the Team Sprint unless they go for even bigger gears to get a higher delivery speed for man2.

    Women's 4k in danger again, I think it helps it's a new event and the learning curve means WR's almost everytime it's raced, but I think if it goes this weekend could be a while before it goes again. I may be wrong.

    I think the way Forstemann has been riding all year 9.572 is easily within his sights in the 200, I mean he did 9.7 on Manchester, and has been going sub 10 comfortably around the world on some pretty slow tracks.

    Anyway they're my thoughts, open to you guys now.

    Wow-you're not joking. Last year, sprint times were extremely fast even without many of the sport's big names. http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/uci.../day-3/results


    It would really be something to see some WRs broken this weekend. Fingers crossed! Don't forget to watch it live on http://www.youtube.com/user/ucichannel

    I'll be shocked if Tournant's kilo record falls.

    Speaking of the Kilo, has there been talk of reinstating the Kilo/500M in the next Olympics? Or is it too late to change the Olympic events?

    Wow, I was looking at the sprint tournament format, and there is a lot of pressure on that first race (and the 200m qualifying, for that matter). Lose that and it appears you are automatically relegated down into the bottom 8 with no repechage opportunity to come back through to the finals.

    On the other hand, it is a way to get to the top 4 quickly, and you get a situation where the top of half of the 1-8 are in tight competition and the top half of the 9-16 are also in tight competition. That said, you'd get way more people into sprinting if it didn't emphasis the three-race prowness of the top riders. I guess it used to be that to win a tourney you'd have to race, like, 10 times or more. There was that element of endurance which forced competitors to lower gears in the lower rounds and the semifinals weren't almost predetermined by the 200m qualifier.

    Jeez, Aguascalientes is at 10,000 feet - no wonder it's fast.

    There were 27 (TWENTY SEVEN) riders under 10 seconds. That's amazing.

    The top 16 were from 9.633 (Juan Peralta Gascon - SPA) to 9.895

    Anybody know if the uci channel is going to be georestricted? I've had bad luck in the past with it.

    it probably will be. download the Hola plugin for your browser. when the uci channel is georestricted, turn the plugin on, select a different country to route your connection through, and reload the page. enjoy!

    Also, it's interesting to see so many new names.

    Day 3, Proper 1km TT Final, 17:10
    To be fair, the way Ed Clancy rode the flying lap, he could be on for at least a sub 60 ride in the Omnium

    Holy Baby Jeebus.

    40 of the 41 riders went under 10". #41 rode 10.037"

    They've gotta be juicing the track with Cheetah Blood or something.

    I still don't see a non-omnium kilo listed on Tissot. Am I missing something?

    Ah, cool there it is, thanks! That was not showing up on my mobile somehow.

    Is anybody getting the UCI YouTube feed to work? I just get a countdown clock that clicks over every 24 hrs and never any content.
