Quick times in men’s team sprint

So we finally have the splits from qualifying for the GB men’s team sprint in Guadalajara. Phil Hindes posted 17.326 for third fastest lead off of the day, but Jame Staff’s British best remains elusive. Jason Kenny clocked 12.407, a sensational time and the fastest non-Aguascaientes performance of all-time (world-wide). Good to see Kenny on good form, watch out for the British record in the sprint on Sunday.

Callum Skinner brought the show to a close with a 13.050, which while four tenths down on the Germans was still a great time, bettered only by Kian Emadi in Aguasalientes and by Chris Hoy. Skinner’s time compared favorably with the 13.166 that Lewis Oliva posted on the same track eight months ago. If the Scot gets the nod to ride the sprint on Sunday, expect a serious assault on Hoy’s 9.815 Scottish best.
