Records tumble on first day of track cycling worlds
Berlin: World records fell on Wednesday as Denmark and the Netherlands set new best times on the first day of the track cycling world championships in Berlin.
The Danes had already started the team pursuit in blistering fashion by setting a new record of 3min 46.579sec in a lightning qualifying display.
And they set a new best again in the next round as Lasse Norman Hansen, Julius Johansen, Frederik Rodenberg Madsen and Rasmus Pedersen recorded a time of 3min, 46.203sec to set up a final against New Zealand. - AFP
