Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish finished a disappointing tenth overall in the Ghent six on Sunday afternoon but Peter Kennaugh and Adam Blythe impressed the huge crowd by winning the supporting Under 25 UIV event.

At only 18 and riding their first full six-day event, the two Brits were the youngest riders in the race but thanks to some valuable advise from Olympic Academy coach Ellingworth, they improved their technique and tactics day after day to come out on top.
