Bronze medal for Isle of Man cyclist

There's been local success at cycling's World Track Championships in the Netherlands.

Peter Kennaugh was part of the Great Britain team which took bronze in the team pursuit event.

Peter, along with Sam Harrison, Steven Burke and Andy Tennant, outclassed New Zealand in a time of four minutes, 2.781 seconds.

The event was won by defending champions Australia who beat Russia to take the gold in three minutes, 57.832 seconds.

The British Olympic champions were already without Bradley Wiggins and Geraint Thomas, who both returned to road racing with Team Sky, after taking gold in the team pursuit at the track World Cup in Manchester in February.

And the GB team was forced into a lineup change for the bronze medal clash, with 18-year-old Harrison making his senior debut in place of Ed Clancy who was suffering from a virus.
