Kenny says race with Hoy for Olympic selection is neck and neck.

Team GB can only select one rider to enter the sprint event in London this summer, so Kenny’s victory over Hoy in yesterday’s semi-final may give him the edge.

Every race this year leading up to the Olympics has been important.

We've both shown we can still race at a good level, finishing second and third. There was nothing between us in the actual race - the first one went down to a tyre's width.

There's not a lot more I can do now than go home, concentrate on getting quicker and what will be will be selection-wise. We'll just see what happens.
