World Keirin Champion and the usual favourite Azizulhasni has yet to recover from a viral infection during the World Championships in the Netherlands earlier this month, and will not be able to peak during this Australian games.

National Track Cycling coach John Beasley said, “It will be a good situation for Shah as he will not be targeted by the other top riders so much. I believe he is ready to give it everything he has. He is a world class rider and has been on the podium before in the World Cup series.”
