Leon Camier takes on gold medal-winning cyclist
The pair were brought together at the Manchester Veledrome as part of an Airwaves Pro opportunity.
Camier was set the task of spending a morning following Kenny’s strict cycling training regime before heading out onto the oval to try the real thing.
He said: ““It was really good to see the differences in the training we have to do for our sports.
“Out on the bikes we did a three lap sprint race.
“The problem is I didn’t know when he was going to really go for it.
“If I’d know the exact point he was going to go I reckon I could have hung onto him.
“I’d like to think I’d shocked him a bit.
“Motorcyclist’s fitness and trainings is an unknown thing – some people don’t realise how hard we have to train.
“But I can’t help but admit that I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t win. He’s won gold medals but I knew I could go quicker and I wanted to push him even further.”
