Katy Marchant and Laura Trott dominated the women’s racing at the 2015 British Track National Championships in Manchester over the weekend, claiming seven national titles between them.

Twenty-two-year-old sprinter Marchant took four victories: the 500 metre time trial, keirin, sprint and team sprint alongside Jess Varnish. Her success means that she ranks among the front-runners for next year’s Olympic Games in Rio – a feat made all the more remarkable given that she only switched to track cycling in 2013 having previously competed in heptathlon.

Olympic champion Trott showed her form is where it needs to be ahead of Rio 2016, claiming victories in the individual pursuit, scratch race and points race, in each case just ahead of Katie Archibald.

Philip Hindes, Jason Kenny and Matt Crampton won the men’s team sprint; Germain Burton, Jake Kelly, Mark Stewart and Oliver Wood (100% ME) won the men’s team pursuit; and Stewart also won the men’s scratch race on the final day of action at the National Cycling Centre on Sunday.
