Team GB cyclist Peter Kennaugh was the star of the show at the Revolution Series event in Manchester as he lapped the field no less than seven times to win the points race.

The 24-year-old, who won Olympic gold at London 2012 in the team pursuit alongside Ed Clancy, Geraint Thomas and Steven Burke, won the event for the second year running.

Also in action were Clancy and Ollie Wood – the pair, riding for Rapha Condor JLT, set a new world record in the 1km Madison time trial in a time of 54.537 seconds, beating the previous record set by Sir Chris Hoy and Arnaud Tournant.

Double Olympic champion Clancy was also victorious in the scratch race and won the flying lap event.

Laura Trott, another double Olympic champion, won the women’s elimination race before emerging unharmed from a heavy crash in the scratch race.

While three-time Olympic champion Jason Kenny won the men’s UCI sprint final and the UCI keirin final.
