Kenny retains World Title

Darren Kenny retained his Kilo TT world title on day 3 of the world Championships. Kenny’s time of 1.12.496 was too fast for silver medallist, David Nicholas (Australia). Kenny’s team mate, Shaun McKeon grabbed the bronze medal with 1.14.347. Kenny bounced back well after the disappointment of losing his pursuit title to Nicholas on day 2.

Meanwhile, Barney Storey had to settle for silver for the second consecutive year in the Tandem Kilo. Storey and stoker, Neil Fachie came agonisingly close to gold, finishing just 0.099s behind Anthony Kappes and Craig MacLean. Both the Dorset athletes will be in action on the final day of the championships, Kenny in the team sprint, with Sarah Storey & Jody Cundy. Storey goes in the tandem sprint and if all goes to plan, should face Maclean & Kappes in the final.
