Hoy denied sprint gold by Kenny
Saturday 19 February 2011
Britain's women won the opening final of the Track World Cup last night but there was to be no gold for four-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy in Manchester.
After Joanna Rowsell, Wendy Houvenaghel and Sarah Storey – the Paralympic champion making her British team debut – won the 3km team pursuit, Hoy was beaten by team-mate Jason Kenny in the men's sprint.
After knocking Hoy out in the semi-final, Kenny met Kevin Sireau in the best-of-three final, with the Frenchman prevailing 2-1. Hoy was third after winning a bronze medal ride-off with Germany's Maximilian Levy 2-0.
