Great Britain’s females travelled to team pursuit gold on day one of the Track Biking World Cup in Glasgow.

Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker, Neah Evans and Ellie Dickinson clocked four minutes 12.244 seconds to beat Germany quickly at the Chris Hoy Velodrome.

” It was a double-quick time and a little bit above our expectations. It’s great when it occurs like that,” said Barker.

Jack Carlin, Ryan Owens and Joseph Truman won males’s team sprint silver behind world champions the Netherlands.

Home favourite Archibald says their efficiency is a key marker before the World Track Championships in February and next summertime’s Olympic Games.

” A lot of the discussion leading into an occasion like this is whether you wish to concentrate on a result or a process,” stated Archibald. “But after you concentrate on a procedure and still leave with a result like this, we’re very pleased.”

The guys’s group pursuit group could not match the accomplishments of their female counterparts, with Ed Clancy, Charlie Tanfield, Ethan Hayter and Ollie Wood ending up fourth after defeat by France in the bronze medal race.
