After speed, the keirin for Sébastien Vigier: the French track rider won a second gold medal on Tuesday at the European Track Cycling Championships in Munich.

The 25-year-old sprinter largely dominated the keirin final, like the French team which collected a thirteenth and even a fourteenth medal in Bavaria with that of bronze for Melvin Landerneau, third.

In the absence of the Dutch masters Harrie Lavreysen and Jeffrey Hoogland, Sébastien Vigier asserts himself as the best sprinter of this Euro.

After gold in individual sprint and silver in teams, this is Essonne's third medal in Munich and his first in keirin in a major championship.

A good omen two months before the Worlds (October 12-16) in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (France): the real objective this year for sprinters who have just come out of a large training block.
