Matt Crampton claimed gold in the men's keirin at the National Track Championships in Manchester on Friday night with a dramatic late run to beat rival Matt Rotherham to the line.

The pair had trailed behind Lewis Oliva heading round the final bend, but Crampton was first to make his move, followed by Rotherham, while veteran Craig MacLean pipped Oliva to third on the line.

Becky James retained her women's sprint title by winning both final races against Victoria Williamson, extending her winning margin in the second. Daniella Khan beat Jessica Crampton in the bronze-medal race.

Mark Colbourne won his second title of the week with victory in the Paracycling Individual Pursuit, while Corinne Hall beat Charline Joiner and Hannah Barnes to take the women's points race title.
