2008 UCI Track Worlds – Day 1 Flash

March 26, 2008 (Manchester, UK) – Jenning Huizenga (Ned) qualified first in the men’s Individual Pursuit with Bradley Wiggins (Great Britain) in second pointing to a showdown between Huizenga and Wiggins for gold tonight. Wiggin’s entourage has apparently been saying that he wants to ride a world or very near world record time in the finals, 4:11-4:12, but that’s a lot of time to take off. Alexei Markov (Russian Federation) in third rides Kiwi Hayden Roulston for bronze. Roulston continues an amazing comback given two years ago he retired with a heart problem. Today’s qualifier was fast with the top seven riders under 4:20, which in past years would have pretty much guaranteed a medal.
