Callum Skinner took the national Sprint title in a dramatic climax after Lewis Oliva looked to have sealed up the title 2-0, only to be relegated for coming out of the sprinter’s line in the second head-to-head. This took the title to a decider which Skinner won by a tiny margin on the line. Matt Crampton beat David Daniell for the Bronze.

Becky James and older sister Rachel stormed to victory in the Team Sprint in a time of 34.424, securing Becky’s third title of the week. Edinburgh Road Club pairing of Eleanor Richardson and Lauryn Therin took silver whilst Sport City Velo duo Megan Boyd and Jessica Crampton won bronze.

The Team Pursuit title went to the GB Academy team who caught their opponents Champion Systems in the final. The Hargroves Cycles team of Jon Dibben, Sam Lowe, Luc Hall and Andrew Hargroves caught the Prestige VC team to take the bronze medal.

The women’s scratch race was won by Janet Birkmyre ahead of Lisa Daly and Kayleigh Brogan. Ben Chapman and Max Stedman are the new U16 Male Madison champions whilst Grace Garner and Abby-Mae Parkinson of RST/Trigon Bikes won the Girls Under 16 Madison title.

The silver medal went to tandem pairing of Sophie Thornhill and Jessica Atkinson, their third medal of the championships and Alice Hayden and pilot Emily Thoday won the bronze.

A thrilling men’s Keirin final saw Matt Crampton take the title with a perfectly timed sprint for the line. Olympic Development Programme rider Matt Rotherham pushed Crampton close but had to settle for silver after being forced to take the long way round on the track. Multiple national champion Craig Maclean made a welcome return to the podium, nipping in to take the bronze from Lewis Oliva on the line.

Corrine Hall produced a determined ride to take the women’s Point Race title ahead of Charline Joiner and former National Circuit Race Champion Hannah Barnes while there was also a first national champion’s jersey for Adam Duggleby who won gold in the men’s Scratch Race ahead of Jon Dibben and Adam Yates

When the British Track Championships returns to the Manchester Velodrome from 26 to 30 September there’ll be a new crop of talented riders all looking to emulate their Olympic heroes and make their mark, just as the likes of Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins, Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton did at the same competition earlier on in their illustrious careers.

As our London 2012 Olympians take a well deserved break – with the exception of Team Sprint gold medallist Philip Hindes who couldn’t stay away from the track – it’s time for the next generation of champions to demonstrate their potential and give cycling fans a glimpse of who’s likely to be setting the boards alight come Rio 2016.

In the men’s endurance events, the GB Academy team 100% ME will be out in force and the likes of UCI Track World Cup gold medallist Sam Harrison, Owain Doull and George Atkins are likely to be strong contenders for the podium. Also amongst the riders likely to make an impact in the endurance events are 21 year old Jonathan Mould, the defending champion in the Men’s Scratch Race and Omnium and recent Junior World Omnium silver medallist 17-year old Jon Dibben.

The men’s Sprint events will feature David Daniell, who last year performed a giant-killing over Jason Kenny, and will be hoping to go one better than the two silver medals he picked up in 2011. He’ll be facing competition from seasoned GB rider Matt Crampton, Olympic Academy Programme rider and 2011 Junior World Sprint champion, John Paul, and Olympic Development Programme rider 18 year-old Matthew Rotherham.

In the women’s sprint events the battle for retired Victoria Pendleton’s ‘queen of the track’ crown is likely to be contested between 2011 double national champion Becky James, Victoria Williamson and Jessica Crampton. In the endurance races all eyes will be on Junior Road World and European Champion, 17 year old Lucy Garner, who is already showing what an outstanding talent she is.
