Cycling: Women’s Keirin
From 4pm (final 6.38pm) BBC1, BBC2, BBC Olympics 8
The keirin is popular in Japan. It generates a lot of betting money. The competitors race for eight laps, but at first they stay behind a little motorised pacing bike called a Derny. The riders try to get the best position and the pace builds gently. The Derny swings off the track with two and a half laps to go. Then it’s a flat-out sprint. You need nerves of steel. The gap Chris Hoy went through to win this year’s world championship wasn’t there!
Women’s keirin makes its Olympic debut in London — the world champion is Victoria Pendleton's great rival Anna Meares of Australia, so she’s one of the favourites. Pendleton has been world champion in the keirin once, in 2007. Hugh Porter

Cycling: Men’s Team Pursuit
First round 4.15pm; finals 5.55pm BBC1, BBC Olympics 8
Team pursuit is a 4,000m race between two squads of four who start on opposite sides of the track. Great Britain have an excellent chance of gold. They’re the world champions and I’m sure the final is going to be Britain against Australia: a repeat of the Melbourne final in April, when Great Britain set the world record. The object is to catch the other team. But as there’s only a whisker between them, they won’t be catching each other.
So it’s the team that completes the distance in the quickest time — taken from the third rider to cross the finish line, so each team can afford to lose a man. Hugh Porter
