Olympic attention turns to cyclists in velodrome

Olympic champions Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton take to the velodrome on Thursday following the success of Team GB's Bradley Wiggins in the Men's time-trial on Wednesday.

Hoy and Jason Kenny won team sprint gold in Beijing and will fight hard to defend their title on home turf.

Meanwhile Pendleton, who is set to retire after the London games, will compete in the women's team sprint alongside Jess Varnish.
