Jason Kenny – no need to panic
Jason Kenny may have endured a difficult weekend in Manchester, but there is no need to panic over the form of the three-time Olympic champion.
Kenny, racing in the rainbow jersey of world champion, led the way in qualification for the keirin final, but found himself stuck at the back, and was unable to come round on the last lap and claim a medal.
He also posted a disappointing qualification time in the individual sprint, which saw him fail to reach the top 16.
But word from the British team is they expected no different as he continues to build form towards the World Championships in February.
To qualify, he needs to finish in the top 30 overall at the World Cup rounds, and as he currently sits 24th after round one, there is no need for panic yet.
