Global Keirin is an independent website tracking the launch and establishment of DerbyWheel, an initiative to bring the thrills of Japanese and Korean professional keirin bicycle racing to an international audience.

Around 350 cyclists have been selected to join the initial intake, following a series of induction sessions in late 2023 and early 2024. Organisers plan to begin operations later in 2024.

We will be doing our best to keep you up to date with event and participant news, plus other interesting and relevant material we find along the way.
