There were some impressive sprint times at the latest Revolution in Glasgow. Top of the pops was Jason Kenny who sped to a 9.972 qualifying time before winning the sprint competition in handy style. There are serious signs that Kenny is rounding into Olympic form. This was his sixth career ride inside 10-flat, only his 4th at sea-level and his first-ever not at the Olympics or World Champs.
Callum Skinner, something of a Revolution specialist, clocked another good time with a 10.046 and finished runner-up to Kenny. Lewis Oliva produced a sea-level best at 10.149 before winning the kierin. Matt Crampton was next home with 10.147.
Perhaps the most impressive ride of the day was Jonathan Mitchell’s 10.262, a pb that moved him to 16th fastest of all-time and was a new Cyclostat’s British Amateur Best, surpassing Chris Pritchard’s Moscow-assisted 10.272 from 2010.
