Crowd Helps Hoy to Secure Gold


Crowd Helps Hoy to Secure Gold

18th February 2012: Sir Chris Hoy gave the six thousand fans at the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in London another Gold medal as their hero claimed victory in the Men's Keirin.

By no means was it the kind of dominate performance we have seen from Hoy in previous years, but a win is a win and his dip for the line was enough to see him beat the German powerhouse Rene Enders and Mickael Bourgain of France.

Hoy, 35, had to settle for bronze in Friday's team sprint and looked like missing out again in the latter stages of the keirin, but the Scotsman's power came to the fore as he took the long route to victory down the home straight.

"I made it hard for myself there," Hoy told BBC Sport. "With half a lap to go I wasn't sure I was going to make it but that crowd, when they see you're going to make that move, it's unbelievable. It's like an Olympics."

He added: "I have been deliberately trying to ride from the back, because if you win from the back and the front then you can deal with any situation.

"There's still a lot of work to be done between now and London but I'll always remember this event. Everybody's on their feet, full of energy, and we're feeding off that. You can almost see the other teams becoming a bit more defensive."
