My friend Nori Ijima took out the 40-44 3000k pursuit title at the masters games in Sydney, and was a split second away from breaking the event record in qualifying. He races keirin to pay the bills but is much handier in long events. He's also won the keirin road championship, which pits pro keirin racers against each other on a long road course on geared bikes. You can watch the races on cyclingmasters.tv. they have all of the events up. Here's a picture of him I took at the road race we did where we became friends.
