I always thought that keirin was like sumo, that there were huge cultural barriers for entry. Anyway is a 1:15 kilo a reasonable place to start to see if you are competitive? I've been timing myself on a mile time trial l and I thought I was pretty slow because I can't get it under 2:02. I thought that must be pretty slow because Major Taylor's was 1:19 but maybe that was paced. If a 1:15 kilo is competitive then maybe I'm not doing too bad.
