Hoy wins from Kenny in Rotterdam

Sir Chris Hoy has won the Six Days of Rotterdam event from fellow Briton Jason Kenny by just one point.

Six-time Olympic champion Hoy went into the final day with a three-point lead from Kenny, who led the first two days.

Hoy’s second in the sprint and third in the keirin was enough to take the title and he won the team sprint with Kenny.

The 36-year-old tweeted:  

“Thanks Rotterdam! Great six nights of racing, big crowds and brilliant atmosphere. Hope to see you again next year!”

Kenny, who

won two golds at the London Olympics,

finished second in the sprint and third in the keirin.

Dutchman Teun Mulder and Frenchman Gregory Bauge finished third and fourth in the four-man competition.

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