Last night was the UCI Track World Championship keirin in Copenhagen at the Bellarup Super Arena.
It was an important night yesterday for Sir Chris Hoy where he won his 10th world title. He admitted that it was one of the toughest to win. He started the race with a false start, a first round collision and a final re-run to grab gold. Hoy said: “It’s certainly one of my most satisfying wins and it was such a hard victory”.
Last year he missed the world championships through an injury sustained in a similar crash while competing in a keirin race on the Ballerup track.
Anyway, yesterday he won his third men’s keirin title in four years. Like he says “I’m in the form of my life and I believe there is more to come” and we do believe that.
Earlier the British team pursuit trio of Johanna Rowsell, Wendy Houvenaghel and Lizzie Armitstead took the silver medal after being blown away by Australia who took gold in a world record time.
