There are other German track cycling medals in the sprint and the 1000 meter time trial.

Emma Hinze is flat after her gold medal.

Munich – On Tuesday, Riem Keirin and Madison will be held on the Munich cycle track in the Messe exhibition centre, these new disciplines which, at first glance, give the impression that you would need several semesters of study to understand them.

But Monday made the traditionalists' hearts leap for joy.

On the programme: the women's sprint and, to the regret of many, the men's 1000 meter time trial, which is no longer an Olympic event.

After a successful weekend, the German team (gold for Emma Hinze over 500 meters, gold and silver for Mieke Kröger and Lisa Brennauer in the individual pursuit, European title for Nicolas Heinrich in the pursuit, silver for Theo Reinhardt in the Elimination driving) other medals: Emma Hinze, the reliable, won gold, and Maximilian Dörnbach took bronze over the 1000 meters.

Sprint is the survival of the fittest, the ruthless.

The eyes don't go to the front of the track, but also to the side (nasty stare-down at the start) and also to the rear during the ride - not that you're surprised.

The final duel of the women between Emma Hinze and Laurine van Riessen became the best of three, the third round brought the gold decision in favor of Emma Hinze - after the evaluation of the finish photo, the cheering broke out.

Hinze drove on the last groove: "I had stomach problems, had to vomit after the first and second run and didn't think I'd win." A half-hour break after a fall of several women in the Omnium proved to be helpful for regeneration (two had to be taken off the train on a stretcher).

She canceled the start in the keirin: "I've decided: That's it now." She leaves Munich as a three-time European champion.

Max Dörnbach third and with Marc Jurczyk a second German in the final (6th place) – in the hunt over the kilometer, the winner Melvin Landerneau (France) was the only one to manage under a minute, there was a good old six-day race atmosphere in exhibition hall C1.

Alone against the clock - at least at the European Championship this epic fight is still alive.

Glorious history fades.

"I like the 1000 meters - but there are fewer and fewer who do it.

Because the associations are guided by what is Olympic,” explains Marc Jurczyk.

He is therefore mainly on the road in the sprint.

"With Madison, a nice discipline has been added." If the kilometer were still Olympic, "you would have to make decisions about what you drive as a sprinter." Therefore: "Laughing and crying eyes."

On the track, the starting fields are clear, the hierarchies clear, and those involved know in advance what can be in it.

This is not the case on the street.

You could see that on Sunday, when the more than 200-kilometer race ended with a sprint decision.

The course was tough at the beginning, after the start in Murnau, including Kesselberg, there was a total of 1200 meters in altitude.

The pictures were as ordered by the Bavarian tourist office, the Austrian Lukas Pöstlberger and the Swiss Silvan Dillier drove ahead as breakaways for a long time, the eyes of the television viewers could wander over the landscapes.
