Olympic icon Sir Chris Hoy heads to Japan, host of the 2021 Tokyo Games, to explore the phenomenon of the keirin, the most extreme and exciting event in track cycling. A test of controlled pacing and then a tactical fight to the line, keirin is a sport in its own right in its country of origin and is steeped in the history and rituals that make Japanese culture so unique. \n\nAttending keirin school is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for international riders, and back in 2005, multiple Olympic gold medallist Sir Chris was one of the first Britons to be invited to savour the ultimate experience in the career of any track cyclist. He now makes a nostalgic return.
