How to beat Chris Hoy

9 Nov

Here’s the video of the match sprint everybody’s talking about. Chris Hoy loses to 18 year old ‘endurance’ rider Felix English. Hoy who posted the fastest in the qualifiers lost to English who was one of the slowest riders. So how did this happen? Check the video. A lot of people thought Hoy was being cocky when he thought he was gonna win. If you think about it, Hoy had a sure win. English just tried his luck and eventually beat Hoy in what was a very surprising turn of events. English looks more shocked than Hoy who lost this chance to win a medal after abstaining from the Commonwealth Games. Funny, but it’s true.
