“If I had known lockdown was going to happen, I wouldn’t have bothered putting myself through all that,” said Kenny, who is working with Purplebricks to get behind Team GB on the countdown to Tokyo.

“I knew I wasn’t fit and I knew there was no way I would be in shape, but it was the last competitive race scheduled before the Games.

“Although it hurt like hell, I knew that if I hadn’t turned up in Berlin and shown them a broken shoulder wasn’t going to stop me, I would have been terrified when I got to Tokyo.

“I’m not going to go through the smallest gap in elimination races, I’m just not going to want to be there.

“Obviously I wasn’t going to go to a world championships and just ride a few laps for the sake of it. I just didn’t expect to crash and break my arm in the process!

“This sounds big-headed, but I knew I was tough and strong-willed, and I knew I could put myself through expectation and pressure.
