Watch: GB’s Archibald & Barker win madison silver

Scotland’s Katie Archibald is identified to enhance despite winning silver in the madision on day three of the Track Cycling World Cup in Glasgow.

Archibald included to the gold she won as part of the group pursuit quarter on Saturday.

However she says her and madison partner Elinor Barker are figured out to gain from their errors so they can go one better at the Toyko Olympics.

” I believe we could have done so better,” Archibald told BBC Scotland.

” It’s positioning throughout, when we invest we’re one of the fastest there and we’re winning sprints and it’s simply kind of spreading out that to the commitment in those pitch points in the middle so that we remain in that position to spring board.”

The set won the last sprint to secure silver with 31 points as Australia declared triumph with 40 points.

Scotland’s Mark Stewart also won a silver medal on the final day of action in Glasgow, after responding to a late SOS call from British biking. Ethan Hayter withdrew from the Omnium, and Stewart was asked if he ‘d take his location.

He arrived in at about half one in the early morning, but his usual preparation didn’t do him any harm at all as he took the silver medal, accumulating 109 points with winner Benjamin Thomas, of France, collecting 130 points.

” I got a call last night at about 9pm, saying do you wish to do the Omnium tomorrow, and I was like well yes of course,” stated Stewart.

” The strength and depth in our team is so excellent, they’re all such strong riders it wasn’t like ‘Simply turn up and see what you can do’, you know you’re responsible. If you’re going to race you’re taking another person’s area so you much better perform. So I was actually rather worried.”
