Keirin Crash – aftermath (not for the squeamish)

Posted: February 22, 2011 in 2011, General

This is not nice. The rider is  Azizulhasni Awang

Awang was one of four riders involved in a high-speed collision that saw Hoy’s rivals scrambling to regain their composure and collect their bikes before crossing the line to gain World Cup points.

The Malaysian’s heroics actually saw him finish third, good enough to pip Hoy for the keirin series title, which covers the four meetings that constitute the track World Cup. Then he was taken to hospital for the removal of the splinter, which passed clean through his lower left leg from one side to the other.
