I think if you can do a 1:15 kilo then you definitely qualify for Keirin school. They actually make a ton of money - you should go for it Carleton The whole thing is centered around gambling.

There is Koichi Nakano though, who took gold 10 years in a row, however many consider his racing style to be dishonorable.
