Why keep the group together if some are faster than others.
Is it all just about making everybody get moeg and then see who sprints faster at the end?
All seems very silly.

No gears, no brakes - just muscle and speed.
The derny winds up the pace slowly until the last part of the race in the Keirin, whereupon the racers begin in earnest. Think of a fying start.
This form of racing is the most [popular form in Japan, where it originated.
The men's sprint is 3 laps (1km), and the racers can go hard from the outset, and some have won this way by surprising their opponent.
Most will go very slowly, trying to force their opponent to lead them out, then jump over the top of them, onc the sprint has opened up.

It's an amazing feeling, and the speed generated by these guys and gals is amazing.
