Chris Hoy has admitted that he is undecided if he will use the 2014 Commonwealth Games as a swansong to his career.
Hoy, 35, a four times Olympic champion and 10 times world champion, is well aware that the clock is ticking but remains upbeat, if unconvinced, about his long-term future participation in competitive cycling.
"That would be the dream end to the career – to have the Olympic Games and then the Commonwealth Games here in the UK," he said.
"It’s two more years and I’ll be 38, so I’m under no more illusions - it is not going to be easy.
"It’s down to hard work and being injury free and having the motivation - it is hard work. Fun but hard work, so you have to weigh up the options.
"Only you yourself know if it is time to retire or if you have a bit more fight in your legs."
Hoy was speaking at the launch of Bank of Scotland National School Sport Week at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow where a Guinness world record was set as160 pupils set a new record for the most people to run 100m in a one hour relay.
Hoy watched the 700 young people competing and having fun and said: "There is a very good chance that one or two of these kids here today could be champions in the future."
