T&T’s junior cycling ace D’Angelo Harris just missed out on qualification for the semifinal round of the keirin at the 2019 Junior Track Cycling World Championship in Germany yesterday.
Contesting heat four of the qualifiers, Harris finished third, just out of the top two places which would have earned him an automatic qualifying spot. His heat was won by Julien Jager of the host nation, with Poland’s Mateusz Sztrauch claiming the second qualifying berth.
Seven heats were contested on the opening day.
Harris, the lone T&T cyclist at the event, later competed in the repechage where he needed to win for a qualifying spot. But he finished third for a second time in the third heat to just miss out on a chance to advance.
Harris will next contest the individual sprints and flying 200 metres for the right to qualify for the much-fancied match sprint event. (WA)
