Hoy and Kenny at Rotterdam 6Day Races

They put on a great show last night. They do the whole thing up like a rock concert. A concert with really bad music. If I ever hear Tina Turner's "Simply the Best", again, my brain will explode.

One question: why where the UK lads riding blacked-out frames?

The frames aren't deliberately blacked out, they never had manufacturers transfers on to begin with.
The UK team don't ride a commercially available frame, it's a custom made frame whose development was funded by the UK Institute of Sport. As it's not commercially available there's no need to stick manufacturers logos all over it for advertising purposes!
You can see Hoy and Kenny using them at the Olympics here:
