Cycling: Hoy claims third national title
Monday 03 October 2011
Sir Chris Hoy won his third title of the National Track Championships in Manchester yesterday with a victory in the team sprint which could prove to be a dry run for next year's Olympics.
Hoy, together with Jason Kenny and 41-year-old Jason Queally, saw off a challenge from Ross Edgar, Pete Mitchell and Dave Daniell in the final.
Queally, winner of a gold medal at the Sydney Olympics 10 years ago, is pushing for a place in the British team for 2012 three years after failing to make the cut for Beijing. And Hoy, who has also won golds in the sprint and keirin this week, is hoping for an even better showing at the European Championships in Holland later this month.
"In terms of the overall plan this is right up there with as good as I could have expected," he said.
