Manx Medal Party(2)

Peter Kennaugh has joined the Manx medal party at the British Track Cycling Championships.

Last night, the Isle of Man rider claimed the bronze medal in the 20K Scratch Race at the Manchester Velodrome, the same event Mark Cavendish took the gold in at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games.

It's a remarkable achievement for the junior rider to finish on the podium in a high quality senior race.

On Wednesday, Jonny Bellis won bronze in 40K Points Race, having won a World Road Race under-23 bronze in Germany just five days earlier.
