Njisane into keirin semis

Top Trinidad and Tobago track cyclist Njisane Phillip qualified for the semi-finals of the Men’s keiren up to press time last night in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

And in the kilometre time trial, Quincy Alexander, in Team DPS colours, finished 18th in a strong field of 21 riders, with a personal best one minute, 01.048 seconds clocking.

Phillip had to use the repechage route to advance after he finished fifth in his first heat.

Australia’s Shane Perkins won that heat, with Great Britain’s Matthew Crampton second.

Valentin Slavitskiy and Simon Van Velthooven were third and fourth respectively. But Phillip returned to win heat two of two in the repechage to secure his spot.

Two major crashes wreaked havoc in the keirin, as five people suffered broken arms, including Indonesian rider Josiah Ng and Frenchman Michael D’Almeida, and an onlooker, who was hit by a cyclist that crashed and flew off the track.
