Quiet start for Ridwan and Nurul Izzah in Milton

In men's keirin, Ridwan failed to get past the first round repechage after he finished second and behind the winner from the Netherlands, Jeffrey Hoogland, in the heat six. The first rider in each heat qualifies for the second round.

The Johorean had to compete in the first round repechages after he earned the fourth spot in heat four of the first round.

The first rider in each heat qualified for the second round while all other riders advanced to the first round repechages.

Meanwhile, national women's track cyclist Nurul Izzah went down to Luz Daniela Gaxiola Gonzalez of Mexico in the heat one of the women's sprint 1/16 finals.

The 20-year-old had earlier advanced to the 1/16 finals after she came in 28th place and earned the last spot to the next stage in the qualifying round.

Ridwan and Nurul Izzah will return in action later today in men's sprint and women's keirin, respectively.
