Hoy ahead of Kenny in Rotterdam

Sir Chris Hoy leads fellow Briton Jason Kenny by four points with two days left of the Six Days of Rotterdam event.

Kenny, who

won two golds at the London Olympics,

led for the first two days in the four-man competition.

But six-time Olympic champion Hoy moved into the lead after day three and maintained it with wins in the individual and team sprints on Sunday.

Dutchman Teun Mulder and Frenchman Gregory Bauge lie third and fourth, with the final day on Tuesday.

The event sees different riders paired together in the team sprint, before competing against each other in the individual sprint and keirin events.

On Sunday Hoy and Mulder overcame Kenny and Bauge by over half a second in the team sprint.

Hoy, who could not be separated in a photo finish with Mulder in their semi-final of the individual sprint, edged out Kenny and Mulder in the final.

Olympic silver medallist Gregory Bauge earned his first win of the whole competition in the keirin.

The annual event, which both Hoy and Kenny have competed in before, takes place in Rotterdam’s Ahoy Stadium.
