Olympic hero Jason Kenny to race Radical at Brands Hatch

Jason Kenny - Radical racerJason Kenny was Team GB’s most successful athlete at the 2016 Rio Olympics – and, now he’s back in the UK, the three-time gold medal-winning cyclist is looking to continue his competitive form…

… By racing a Radical at Brands Hatch this coming Bank Holiday weekend!

The track cyclist will drive a Radical SR3 RSX in the Radical Challenge, aiming to continue a successful streak on four wheels: in his last motor race, back in 2014, he finished on the podium at the challenging Nürburgring circuit in the Radical European Masters.

Racing took a back seat since then as Kenny prepared for the Olympics – rather successfully too, it seems – but now he’s back from Rio, he’s keen to get back behind the wheel.

Kenny is now tied with Sir Chris Hoy as Britain’s most successful Olympian: both hold six gold medals and one silver. Sir Chris is one step ahead of Kenny on four wheels though – after starting off racing Radicals, he’s since gone on to race at Le Mans.

Following the Brands event this weekend, Kenny and Sir Chris will actually be team-mates in a Radical Spyder during a race later this year at Jerez… so what are the sporting odds on Kenny getting some top tips and eventually following him to the Le Mans 24 Hours?
