Hoy takes his third title in the team sprint

James wins the women's sprint title

Sir Chris Hoy sealed his third British national title of the week in the team sprint event alongside Jason Kenny and 41 year-old former Olympic Champion, Jason Queally on the final day of action at the National Track Championships in Manchester.

The final saw them pitted against Great Britain squad compatriots Ross Edgar, Pete Mitchell and Dave Daniell, after a breathtaking display of speed and power from both teams. But it was Hoy who had the last say, as he brought the team home in the final lap to take the title and cap an outstanding start to his track season.

"My performances have been better than I expected bearing in mind that none of us are really fresh, we have a couple of weeks to the Europeans where we will be looking to progress and again you would expect the performances to improve so it's a really good starting point. (The Championships) have been at the top end of my expectations. In terms of the overall plan this is right up there with as good as I could have expected," Hoy said.

In other titles decided on the last day of competition, Becky James produced a dominant display in the Women's Keirin race to take gold, making her a double national champion following her victory in the sprint event on Friday. Going into the final two laps, James powered to the front and held off the rest of the field to take the win with ease.

"Friday was awesome, I was so happy with the flying sprint, a personal best on a 250m track and a 11:22,” she said. “All the sprints went how I wanted them too and today I had my head screwed on, I kept my gap and no one wanted to come round so I kept watching and then with a lap and a half to go I just hit it hard and controlled the pace."

In the women’s team pursuit, gold went to the Horizon Fitness team who caught a young Motorpoint outfit after less than 100 seconds of the final, having set off at a scorching pace.

“We are going well at the moment but we've had a week's racing in our legs so I think our times are getting better and better. We went out with a plan and it worked," current team pursuit world champion Dani King said.

Newly crowned junior road race world champion Lucy Garner was on the podium again at the Manchester velodrome as she joined Harriet Owen to win gold in the junior women's madison. The pairing came back from an eight point deficit after two sprints to win three of the next four and catch and overtake the defending champions Hannah Walker and Hannah Barnes. A small but high quality field produced some compelling racing, with Barnes and Walker really going off well only to be pegged back by Garner and Owen who came at them hard in the final four sprints.

Jonathan Mould is the men’s national omnium champion after a very consistent performance across the four events: he won the flying lap and the elimination race, and was second in the scratch and third in the points race.
