Sir Chris Hoy snatches world keirin title in Melbourne
UCI World Track Cycling Championships 2012
- Venue: Hisense Arena, Melbourne
- Date: 4-8 April 2012
Britain's Sir Chris Hoy wins the men's keirin world title with a phenomenal last-ditch move in the home straight at the World Track Cycling in Melbourne.
New Zealand's Simon van Velthooven and eventual silver medallist Maximilian Levy of Germany led the race, but Hoy crowbarred his way between the two to snatch gold on the line.
Van Velthooven crossed the line third but was later relegated for illegally moving into a rider's line, handing the bronze to GB's Jason Kenny.
