Track Records Fall

French sprinter Arnaud Tournant became the first rider ever to go under one minute for the standing start 1,000 metre time trial, clocking 58.875 seconds to break his own record of 1.00.148 set in Mexico last year. The average speed was 61.146 km/h.

Another Frenchman, Arnaud Dublé, broke Russian Alexandre Kiritchenko's long lasting record for the flying 500 metres, riding 25.850 seconds, nearly one second faster than the Russian's time of 26.649 seconds. Dublé averaged 69.63 km/h in his attempt.

However, Laurent Gané failed in his bid today to break 200 metre time of 9.865 seconds.

All record attempts took place on the high altitude (3,417m) velodrome in La Paz, Bolivia
