UCI Track Cycling World Championships
Venue: Berlin Velodrome, Germany. Dates: 26 February-1 March.
Coverage: Live on BBC Two, BBC Four, BBC Red Button, BBC iPlayer, BBC Sport website and app and through Connected TVs.

Great Britain’s Laura Kenny finished fourth in the scratch race at the Track Cycling World Championships in Berlin, a month after breaking her shoulder.

The 27-year-old four-time Olympic champion was edged out on the line as the Netherlands’ Kirsten Wild won gold.

Jennifer Valente of the United States and Portugal’s Maria Martins took silver and bronze respectively.

Kenny suffered the injury in a crash during the tempo race at the World Cup in Milton, Canada in January.

She previously told BBC Sport how she chose not to have an operation – against a surgeon’s advice – in order to continue her Tokyo 2020 preparations, but she will not compete in the team pursuit or Madison in Berlin.

The scratch race – in which Kenny won world gold in 2016 – is not an Olympic event.
