Track Cycling World Cup: Irvine misses out on medal ride

Martyn Irvine has missed out on an individual pursuit medal ride at the Track Cycling World Cup in Manchester after finishing seventh in qualifying.

The Newtownards man clocked 4:26.01, over five seconds behind the fastest time set by Italian Marco Coledan.

Britain's Andy Tennant also failed to progress after finishing in sixth.

Irvine won a bronze medal at the European Track Championships in October, just seven months after fracturing his thigh bone in a crash.
