Hoy tops men's sprint

Sir Chris Hoy added another national title to his palmares, breezing through to the final round in the men's sprint before overpowering suprise silver medalist Dave Daniell.

Daniell qualified second fastest in the flying 200, and went on to dispatch Jody Cundy in the first round and Matthew Rotherham in the quarterfinal before heading up against Olympian Jason Kenny in the semifinal.

In the closest match of the night, Daniell managed to beat Kenny 2-1 to move onto the gold medal final against Hoy, where he was unable to match the flying Scotsman.

Hoy gave tribute to Daniell after the race, saying, "I think when you get that morale boost and that confidence boost, it does you a lot of good, it's really good for him, I don't think he was expecting that, he got left out of the Under 23 team for the European Championships a couple of months ago, but that was his big target for the season, and he's bounced back very well from that, I'm really pleased for him, he worked very hard."

Hoy was satisfied with a second title for teh week, and is now looking foward to a careful build up to the London Olympic Games. "You want to win all the time, this is the first of five races between now and the Games, and each one becomes more important the closer you get but I want to start out the way I intend to continue, to win the last two nights has really set me up well for the start of the season and given me confidence going in to the European championships in two weeks time. It's a long time to London still, but also not a long time in the context of things."

In the bronze medal final, Kenny beat Peter Mitchell to take the final podium spot.

Jess Varnish and Victoria Pendleton showed they were in a class of their own to take home the women's team sprint title. City of Edinburgh's Jenny Davis and Kayleigh Brogan took silver overXRT Elmy Cycles' Janet Birkmyre & Cassie Gledhill.

It was the last national championships for Pendleton, who will bow out of the sport following the Olympics in August. Asked how many medals she'd won at National events, she said: "It could be something around 30, I don't actually know, it weighs about 5 kilos in medals, so yeah, it's a reinforced shopping bag, hidden away somewhere at the bottom of the wardrobe."

Lizzie Armitstead (Garmin-Cervelo) took a narrow victory in the women's scratch race, holding off Dani King and Laura Trott for the gold.
