Hoy, Kenny to race in Rotterdam

Olympic heroes Sir Chris Hoy and Jason Kenny will race in the Rotterdam Six Day in January.

Hoy has won six Olympic gold medals to Kenny's two.

Kenny was selected ahead of Hoy for the individual sprint in London and the pair will face off in the sprinters cup in the Netherlands on January 3-8.

"With these two extremely agile British riders it promises a beautiful spectacle in Ahoy," said meeting organiser Frank Boele.

"We are working with more big names and expect soon to present a program that is will be unequalled in terms of sport and entertainment."
