Jason Kenny warmed up for the World Cup season by claiming his second title in 24 hours with a men's sprint victory at British Cycling's national track championships in Manchester.

Kenny followed up on his win in the men's keirin by beating Peter Mitchell in the final while Matt Crampton completed the podium.

"Absolutely over the moon, it's the first race on wood because we've been training on concrete over the summer so I was only just finding my feet towards the end of the night," he said. 

"But winning is a habit so let’s hope we can carry it on through the Track World Cup."

Elsewhere, Jess Varnish and Danni Khan took women’s team sprint gold, Corrine Hall won the women’s scratch race and Adam Duggleby, Timothy Lawson, Jacob Ragan and Alistair Rutherford won the men’s team pursuit title.
