Hoy Advances

LONDON -- Sir Chris Hoy of Great Britain won his heat in the keirin competition, which is six riders in a two and a half-lap sprint to the finish. It's actually eight laps, but for the first five and a half laps, the riders go around single file behind a guy on a motorized bike. The motorized bike pulls away with two and a half left and the racers go for it. Why five and a half laps? Heck if I know.
