RIDING FOR 7TH-12TH PLACES TODAY: Trinidad and Tobago’s Kwesi Browne.

Trinidad and Tobago track cyclist Kwesi Browne failed to advance to the final of the men’s keirin event when the sixth leg of the Tissot UCI Track World Cup continued in Milton, Canada last night.

Browne finished fifth of six riders in his semi-final and was scheduled to ride off for position in the 7th - 12th final after press-time.

Earlier, Browne had advanced directly into the semifinals of the event when he finished second in heat two of four, in the first round qualifying stage yesterday afternoon.

The top two cyclists from each heat advanced to the semi-finals.

Today, Team TTO men’s individual sprint world record-holder Nicholas Paul and Quincy Alexander will line up in the qualifying rounds of the Flying 200.

The cyclists are being coached by former T&T rider Elijah Greene who was given the responsibility by the Trinidad and Tobago Cycling Federation after technical director Erin Hartwell took a leave of absence from his post.
