- Track Cycling – on now
For those who’d like to tune in…Posted 5 years agoglupton1976Member
3.2.153 A team shall be relegated to the last place in the stage of the competition if one of the following infringements has been committed:
1) if a rider draws away by more than 15 metres before the end of the lap that he is to lead
2) if a rider does not draw away by more than 15 metres after the end of the lap that he was supposed to lead
3) if one rider pushes another.
Not exactly clearly written…. But I suppose the riders know what they mean or do they?Posted 5 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
gutted for JV as its her only event, at least VP has another go. In recent VP thread someone suggested JV looked like a bloke, cant say I subscribe to that, and much of her appeal was how how bubbly and positive she is compared to the slightly fragile VP. Rio is a long time away.
and in happier times with VP (world cup earlier this year)

Meh so sad for the women. Not sure if there’s blame but the frickin commentators going on about how sad for VP and no mention of JV?! At least VP already has medals and 2 more shots, poor JV more like 🙁Posted 5 years ago
Feel sorry for the Chinese women to, unless the commisaires have better video/stills than was shown on TV there’s no way they should have made that call as it was too close to see.crazy-legsSubscriber

They have much better video, transponders and several Commissaires all with different views.
The relegation was correct – JV/VP made an illegal change. Not petty – they and everyone else know the rules.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m as gutted for them as anyone especially as Vicky seemed really positive in the 3 seconds I saw her before the racing started but rules are rules.Posted 5 years ago
Yeah VP/JV was definitely illegal but the Chinese one was much closer and it looked like the Chinese coach was arguing you couldn’t clearly tell (after reviewing on the commisaire’s screen). I would be surprised though if they don’t have the equivalent of photo-finish tech running for it as they knew it would be controversial after the World’sPosted 5 years ago
