British National Track Championships roundup: Day 5 (By Peter Maxwell of British Cycling)

Sir Chris Hoy sealed his third Gold medal of the week in the Team Sprint alongside Jason Kenny and 41 year old former Olympic Champion, Jason Queally on the final day of action at the National Track Championships in Manchester. The final saw them pitted against GB compatriots Ross Edgar, Pete Mitchell and Dave Daniell, who secured his third silver medal of the championships. It was a breathtaking display of speed and power from both teams, but it was Hoy who had the last say, as he brought the team home in the final lap to take the title and cap an outstanding start to his season.


Speaking afterwards he said: “My performances have been better than I expected bearing in mind that none of us are really fresh, we have a couple of weeks to the Europeans where we will be looking to progress and again you would expect the performances to improve so it’s a really good starting point. [The Championships] have been at the top end of my expectations.  In terms of the overall plan this is right up there with as good as I could have expected.”

Becky James produced a dominant display in the Women’s Keirin race to take Gold, making her a double National Champion following her victory in the sprint event on Friday. Going into the final two laps, James powered to the front and held off the rest of the field to take the win with ease. She said afterwards: “Friday was awesome, I was so happy with the flying sprint, a PB on a 250m track and a 11:22. All the sprints went how I wanted them too and today I had my head screwed on, I kept my gap and no one wanted to come round so I kept watching and then with a lap and a half to go I just hit it hard and controlled the pace.”

In the Team Pursuit race, Gold went to Horizon Fitness who caught a young Motorpoint outfit after less than 100 seconds of the final, having set off at a scorching pace. Team Pursuit World champion in the team pursuit Dani King said: “We are going well at the moment but we’ve had a week’s racing in our legs so I think our times are getting better and better. We went out with a plan and it worked.”

Jason Kenny screams out of the starting gate for his lap 1 of the track with Jason Queally and Chris Hoy in tow.

Arguably the highlight of these championships has been the long list of young riders on show. Newly crowned Junior Road Race Champion Lucy Garner was on the podium again as she joined Harriet Owen to  win gold in the Junior Women’s Madison. The pairing came back from an eight point deficit after two sprints to win three of the next four and catch and overtake the defending champions Hannah Walker and Hannah Barnes. A small but high quality field produced some compelling racing, with Barnes and Walker really going off well, only to be pegged back by Garner and Owen who came at them hard in the final four sprints.

Jonathan Mould is the National Omnium Champion after a very consistent performance across the four events: he won the flying lap and the elimination race, and was second in the scratch and third in the points race.

Hargroves Cycles duo Jon Dibben and Owen Doull continued their strong form they’ve shown throughout the week, after they completely dominated the Junior Men’s Madison taking all the intermediate sprints along the way to another Gold medal.
