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.
