UCI has been posting 360-videos like it’s the new big thing.
That’s because it is.
Check out, for instance, this video of a Keirin, taken from the derny rider’s bike. A Kierin is a motor-paced track race in which track cyclists sprint for victory following a speed-controlled start behind a motorized or non-motorized pacer.
Azizulhasni Awang won the first ever world title for Malaysia.
In the final lap, Awang made an attack over the top of the field to drop the rest of the riders and win by three bike lengths.
Fabian Puerta Zapata of Colombia won the silver medal and Tomas Babek of the Czech Republic took the bronze.
Awang was the Keirin bronze medalist in the last two years, and accounts for five of the six medals Malaysia has won at track world championships.
