Ross Edgar was the man to beat heading into the Melbourne event, the only rider on Sky +HD’s sprint roster. Having made it through to the semi final, he was eliminated in an entertaining match up which saw Azizul Awang, Tang Qi and Shane Perkins progress to the gold medal showdown.
In the gold medal final this was the trio to watch although the party was spoilt by German rider Carsten Bergemann, who hit out over the last lap to take a comfortable win, with Azizul Awang finishing second following Shane Perkins’ relegation for crowding.
It was Ng’s first world cup medal since 2006 and a glorious return for Awang, who said he was obviously happy with the Malaysians’ performance – with two riders on the keirin podium – and the team’s approach to this event.
