Track Cycling World Championships 2014: Jason Kenny out of the medals in ‘nightmare’ for British men
Second title for Briton to add to team triumph
Monday 03 March 2014
Three-time Olympic champion Jason Kenny will return from the Track Cycling World Championships without stepping foot on the podium after being forced to settle for a hat-trick of fifth-place finishes after his quarter-final elimination in the sprint to France’s François Pervis.
Kenny and team-mate Ed Clancy, who finished fifth in the men’s omnium, were unable to reveal reasons for the poor performances of Britain’s men in Cali, Colombia. Clancy, part of the team pursuit squad which finished eighth on day one in the worst British result in the event in 15 years, said: “No, in a word.
“This whole track season hasn’t been a bad one. We’ve had some great results, great performances, just not this week. Truth be told this whole week’s been a bit of a nightmare. Team pursuit, it started off there.”
Kenny added: “It’s fractions. Unfortunately we’re at the wrong end of those fractions. We want to be fractions in front instead of fractions behind. Three fifth places tend to speak for themselves. I feel a little bit behind the top runners.”
