Cycling: Pendleton takes gold but Hoy is denied
Monday 20 December 2010
Victoria Pendleton won Keirin gold and Sir Chris Hoy sprint silver on the final day of the Track World Cup in Cali, Colombia yesterday.
Pendleton negotiated the first and second rounds of the event, which begins behind a Derny pacing motorbike, by finishing first and held off the six-woman field to triumph in the final ahead of French duo Sandie Clair and Virginie Cueff.
In the men's sprint, Hoy beat team-mate Matt Crampton in the quarter-finals before defeating world champion Gregory Bauge 2-0 in the best-of-three semi-final. Hoy, though, then suffered a 2-0 loss to Frenchman Kevin Sireau in the final and had to settle for silver.
Laura Trott was fifth in the women's omnium after winning the last of the six events, the 500m time-trial. New Zealand won the men's team pursuit.
