Track Kilo World champion Theo Bos will not focus on the 1000 m time trial anymore, the discipline which brought him a Gold medal in Los Angeles earlier this year. The Dutchman has decided he will concentrate on the sprint, team sprint and keirin instead, as the kilo as an Olympic discipline has been eliminated earlier this year.
"It's always difficult to let go of the discipline in which you wear the rainbow jersey," Bos said. "But because the kilo has been scrapped from the Olympic programme, the decision is easier to take."
Next week, the track cycling season begins with a sprint competition in Manchester, UK; and in Berlin, Germany, the Sixday season will be opened on October 15. The first round of the World Cup will take place in Manchester on December 9-11.
