Irvine delighted after cycling to silver in Colombia

Martyn Irvine is happy with his silver medal after an impressive performance in the scratch race at the World Track Cycling Championships in Colombia.

The Newtownards man gained a lap with only seven remaining and held on to finish behind Russian Ivan Kovalev.

Irvine, who won gold in the same event last year, finished 12th in individual pursuit qualifying earlier on Thursday.
