she has done it. Great Britain are the team that could not be beaten.

:00:11.:00:28.

They are the world champions a game. -- again.

:00:29.:00:41.

A very good afternoon to you. The championships so far has been really

:00:42.:00:49.

disappointing from the normally dominant British Cycling team. Jamie

:00:50.:01:02.

staff is alongside me once again. Me and Jamie are happy we are tired.

:01:03.:01:07.

I'm sure Sarah Storey will catch up later on I play. Here is what she

:01:08.:01:16.

had two look forward to. It is Laura Trott against Sarah Hammer in the

:01:17.:01:22.

women's Omnium. No Olympic champion in the men's sprint.

:01:23.:01:30.

Becky James has a world title to defend. We will see the women's

:01:31.:01:37.

Kieren where Kristina Vogel is looking for her third rainbow

:01:38.:01:45.

jersey. Laura Trott stole our hearts in London 2012 with the dramatic

:01:46.:01:49.

Omnium win. It should be a battle royal in -- here. Here comes Laura

:01:50.:02:03.

Trott. She wins the final event. She wins the women's Omnium. What keeps

:02:04.:02:19.

driving you and driving you? I love winning. You finish, I did a 500

:02:20.:02:26.

metres, you look at the board and see you have one and it overrides

:02:27.:02:35.

any other feeling you have. Where do you think you are now? There is

:02:36.:02:41.

always something I need to improve on.

:02:42.:02:46.

We have been doing a lot and I did eight points race and my coach said

:02:47.:02:57.

I did really well. To hear that gave me quite a bit of hope and good

:02:58.:03:03.

feelings. You have a huge target on your back. Does it make it just that

:03:04.:03:10.

little bit harder? It definitely does. It is hard. I see people get

:03:11.:03:18.

an easy lap. I try and get a lap and I cannot do it. It takes me 60 laps

:03:19.:03:26.

to get it. I do think it makes it harder. If it were not like that,

:03:27.:03:31.

maybe I would not enjoy it so much because it might be easier. When it

:03:32.:03:38.

comes to competitions, she is stealing. First up, it was that

:03:39.:03:44.

flying lap. This time trial is 250 metres. Laura started off well and

:03:45.:03:52.

was in third place. She was one point and one place behind Sarah

:03:53.:04:02.

Hammer, her archrival. Next was the points race. Sarah Hammer only

:04:03.:04:10.

featured in one of the eight sprints but gained lap. Despite Laura Trott

:04:11.:04:15.

scoring heavily, the victory went to the American with Laura in third

:04:16.:04:20.

place. As expected, the battle was on. The American had the best of the

:04:21.:04:25.

early skirmishes. Next up it was the elimination race.

:04:26.:04:42.

The rider from Colombia. This is supposed to be neutralised lap. They

:04:43.:04:54.

are already contesting positions. Sarah Hammer started off on the

:04:55.:04:57.

front line. You would think they were sprinting for the first points.

:04:58.:05:03.

Coming through, around on the outside, as they start the race is

:05:04.:05:14.

the Polish rider. The French rider is also towards the front. On the

:05:15.:05:21.

next time they cross the line, the first rider will be eliminated, that

:05:22.:05:26.

is the last rider to cross the line. Laura Trott is towards the back of

:05:27.:05:32.

the field. When I first saw this it alarmed me. I thought she had got

:05:33.:05:38.

herself into difficulties. I realised she was so good, she knows

:05:39.:05:42.

what to do. She spots the gaps when we would spot the bodies and somehow

:05:43.:05:49.

slipped through them. In that statement I've just made, how did

:05:50.:05:53.

she get from the back to the front in about eight seconds? The next

:05:54.:06:04.

time over the line we will lose our second rider. Laura Trott is at the

:06:05.:06:06.

front. It is the rider from Hong Kong who

:06:07.:06:25.

has gone. She is out. Sarah Hammer got herself into a bit of bother.

:06:26.:06:31.

Not afraid of hard work. She is happy to sit on the front and ride

:06:32.:06:38.

from there. The Belgian is quite prominent as well. Laura Trott at

:06:39.:06:47.

the bottom of the track, about force in line at the moment. Not in a bad

:06:48.:06:54.

position at all. Was that the rider from Japan? It may well have been

:06:55.:07:00.

the rider from Japan who has gone. No, it is the Cuban rider. There was

:07:01.:07:07.

half a wheel in it. Not quite in line with the finish here. Laura

:07:08.:07:14.

Trott tucked away in the middle of the pack.

:07:15.:07:20.

The Colombian is riding on the front. Here comes Laura Trott once

:07:21.:07:29.

again, just gliding towards the front. The rider from Hong Kong is

:07:30.:07:40.

at this time. It is the Japanese rider who has gone. That does

:07:41.:07:48.

surprise me. Laura Trott in second place. Sarah Hammer right at the

:07:49.:07:53.

back at the moment. She is bouncing along at the back of the field and

:07:54.:07:58.

she now makes a move. She goes past the Italian. She is gone. Sarah

:07:59.:08:09.

Hammer is making hard work of this race. That is three times she has

:08:10.:08:13.

been swamped and had to come around the outside. She stalled again

:08:14.:08:18.

halfway. She is covering a lot of distance. Laura Trott, on the

:08:19.:08:23.

inside, is just minding the holes when she needs to. The Russian rider

:08:24.:08:33.

is at the rear of the field at the moment. Her position in this field

:08:34.:08:45.

is at risk. How she made it? It was closed between her and the rider

:08:46.:08:55.

from Belarus. It is just starting to whittle down. It comes thick and

:08:56.:08:59.

fast in the elimination race. Another rider will go next time

:09:00.:09:04.

around. Laura Trott goes to the front of the field. The rider at the

:09:05.:09:10.

back again, who is in trouble, is the Russian.

:09:11.:09:18.

That was a close one. It made BBC back Ian. Yes, it is. -- it may be

:09:19.:09:36.

the Slovakian. Laura Trott is still riding in front.

:09:37.:09:47.

Laura Trott has ridden very well so far in this elimination race. She is

:09:48.:09:55.

in second place overall, three points behind Sarah Hammer.

:09:56.:10:05.

Laura Trott in second place. Yet again, the ration is loitering

:10:06.:10:37.

towards the back of the field. The French athlete is the overall winner

:10:38.:10:42.

of the cup series. She could not hang around long enough to contest a

:10:43.:10:51.

finish here. France have gone. Laura Trott in second place. Sarah Hammer

:10:52.:10:59.

back in fifth. Laura Trott was almost boxed in but she spotted it.

:11:00.:11:04.

I am trying to recall when she last lost one of these events. The

:11:05.:11:15.

Spaniard is out. Now it starts to really get interesting. We are down

:11:16.:11:16.

to the last half-dozen. Sarah Hammer is on the back now. She

:11:17.:11:37.

is really struggling with this. This could play into the hands of Laura

:11:38.:11:45.

Trott. The Colombian is in a really difficult position. She will go. She

:11:46.:11:52.

could not quite get on the back of the net Edmondson. She desperately

:11:53.:11:58.

needs a good elimination race. That is after the points race where she

:11:59.:12:04.

finishes in 11 if she wants a podium spot. A couple of gold medals for

:12:05.:12:08.

the Edmondson family already. Her brother has one two golds. Sarah

:12:09.:12:16.

Hammer is in big trouble at the back. She may concede a few points.

:12:17.:12:21.

Laura Trott suddenly finds herself at the back. This will be tight as

:12:22.:12:28.

they cross the line. Laura Trott found a space that was not there.

:12:29.:12:33.

That was a very courageous move to go on the inside. She forced her way

:12:34.:12:43.

through. There was no gap but Laura Trott created one. She knew she was

:12:44.:12:46.

in trouble. Now we are down to five. Sarah Hammer again on the rear. She

:12:47.:13:07.

is going to try to box Laura Trott but she spotted it. Now we are down

:13:08.:13:18.

to four. Just two more eliminations before the final sprint. It is

:13:19.:13:25.

almost like a sprint now, isn't it? A sprint lap next time. Laura Trott

:13:26.:13:33.

is boxed in. Sarah Hammer is trying to make sure she stays boxed in. She

:13:34.:13:38.

will have to work hard. Edmondson leaves out the sprint. Laura Trott

:13:39.:13:45.

has work to do as they come up towards the line. Had she made it?

:13:46.:13:51.

That is a big surprise. In Laura Trott terms, that is an early exit

:13:52.:14:02.

from the elimination race. She was just behind Sarah Hammer. That is a

:14:03.:14:09.

real blow. I was just saying, I cannot remember the last time she

:14:10.:14:16.

lost one of these events. She will take four points from this event.

:14:17.:14:21.

Sarah Hammer looks as if she was having to work really hard earlier

:14:22.:14:24.

in this elimination race. She is still there right at the end.

:14:25.:14:30.

Edmondson is out. It'll be Belgian man the USA, the last two on the

:14:31.:14:37.

track. Sarah Hammer looked to be in trouble all away through the race.

:14:38.:14:41.

She gets better and better as the numbers whittle down.

:14:42.:14:59.

The final sprint for the line. Sarah Hammer on the inside of the track.

:15:00.:15:10.

Sarah Hammer, what an opening day she has had! She has stamped her

:15:11.:15:18.

authority all away over the competition. Laura Trott has it all

:15:19.:15:23.

to do issues to overcome the American on day two. Day two began

:15:24.:15:30.

with the individual pursuit in the two kilometre time trial. Those two

:15:31.:15:38.

athletes were a class above the rest but Sarah Hammer prevailed by just

:15:39.:15:42.

over half a second to put her seven points clear. Two events to go. Next

:15:43.:15:48.

the scratch race over ten kilometres. It is Laura were to take

:15:49.:15:55.

gold, this is her last chance. This turned out to be the least

:15:56.:16:00.

successful event for both Sarah Hammer and Laura Trott with the

:16:01.:16:03.

American pipping the Brit by just one place. The title and the rainbow

:16:04.:16:09.

jersey will stay in the states in the last event. Edmondson closing in

:16:10.:16:15.

on bronze. A good start from and it is and is

:16:16.:16:36.

on. She has got a chance to take another round here. She won the

:16:37.:16:42.

opener yesterday morning. She was the second fastest. It is all down

:16:43.:16:53.

to the final 250 metres. A high line on the track. It is a new fastest

:16:54.:17:03.

time. She just kept winding up and up. Jolien D'Hoore's time is good

:17:04.:17:12.

enough for fourth place. She will be reasonably pleased. It is not her

:17:13.:17:19.

favourite discipline. And it is and set a tough mark.

:17:20.:17:28.

The sixth and final race. It has not gone the way she would have wanted,

:17:29.:17:37.

she has been competitive throughout, as always, but Sarah Hammer has had

:17:38.:17:43.

her number this time. And eight point difference, so this ride is

:17:44.:17:47.

unlikely to affect the overall result. They have a decent buffer on

:17:48.:17:53.

the riders behind them. Laura Trott has got to hold off Annette

:17:54.:17:58.

Edmondson behind her. A picture of concentration, Laura Trott gets

:17:59.:18:06.

under way. Look at her go. She does not lack courage. Neither of them

:18:07.:18:12.

do. They put every sinew into the ride. Laura Trott has just got to

:18:13.:18:23.

keep going. That is the only thing she can control, and she has got to

:18:24.:18:27.

hope that Sarah Hammer loses more time. Laura Trott crosses the line

:18:28.:18:34.

second fastest. Sarah Hammer's time is good enough for fourth place,

:18:35.:18:38.

there is the world champion, she has won it for the second year in a row,

:18:39.:18:44.

it is exactly the same scenario as last time, Sarah Hammer, gold, and

:18:45.:18:51.

silver for Laura Trott. Not a great ride for Sarah Hammer there, but she

:18:52.:18:55.

did enough, she built up a buffer of points, and that is what she had it

:18:56.:19:00.

for. Sarah Hammer finishing with 14 points, Laura Trott on 20. Annette

:19:01.:19:06.

Edmondson, the Olympic bronze medallist, gets a bronze medal here,

:19:07.:19:12.

24 points. Jolien D'Hoore outside the medals by some distance, 35

:19:13.:19:15.

points. A silver medal to add to the gold

:19:16.:19:26.

medal you won earlier in the week, you did not do a lot wrong. Sarah

:19:27.:19:32.

Hammer was just keen to get the gold medal. Yes, she rode amazingly, she

:19:33.:19:38.

won three of the six events. The better girl won on the day. Like you

:19:39.:19:44.

say, I tried my best, I rode a decent points race for once. It is

:19:45.:19:49.

putting the pieces together. The elimination race let me down this

:19:50.:19:55.

time. But everything else went well. It is getting six complete events

:19:56.:19:59.

right on the day. The focus for you is the team to shoot, but the fact

:20:00.:20:03.

you have been so competitive in the bunch races is progress. Definitely,

:20:04.:20:10.

the team pursuit helps me, because on the road we train further and do

:20:11.:20:17.

some hard, flat-out efforts, and helps in the bunch races. Chris

:20:18.:20:21.

Newton has been doing a lot of work with me, it is paying off. You are

:20:22.:20:26.

paying the price for John arousal beating Sarah Hammer, because she

:20:27.:20:30.

was desperate to get the medal, she was angry. She tweeted to say how

:20:31.:20:36.

gutted she was, so she was out to get us back, and she did! How have

:20:37.:20:41.

you enjoyed these championships? I really enjoy the team pursuit, that

:20:42.:20:47.

was my best victory. Things went wrong and we still won, so we could

:20:48.:20:51.

laugh about it. I really wanted to win the omnium. That was a bit of a

:20:52.:20:56.

disappointment, but to come away with a silver, I am super happy.

:20:57.:21:01.

A gold medal for Sarah Hammer. You know her well. You see her training

:21:02.:21:07.

in the state, that was a dominant performance. She wanted to prove a

:21:08.:21:15.

point. She has had a quick rise back to form, she let herself go a bit

:21:16.:21:20.

about -- after the Olympics. She is training hard back home, but she is

:21:21.:21:25.

there to prove a point and stamp her authority on that discipline and

:21:26.:21:30.

show she is in contention for Rio de Janeiro. The different looking

:21:31.:21:36.

athlete, Sarah Hammer is a powerhouse, Laura Trott is much

:21:37.:21:41.

slighter, but that performance from Sarah was so dominant, for Laura,

:21:42.:21:45.

she must look and think, where are the weaknesses for Sarah? Sarah

:21:46.:21:53.

struggles being in the pack, she is not comfortable at that, she is

:21:54.:21:58.

working on it, obviously, her coaches have addressed it and they

:21:59.:22:01.

are trying to get her more comfortable, they will look at how

:22:02.:22:06.

races are panning out. We are doing the same thing with Laura. She does

:22:07.:22:12.

have witnesses, everybody does. At the moment, Laura is scratching her

:22:13.:22:18.

head, how can I beat her? Sarah is going really fast, she is a

:22:19.:22:24.

powerhouse, she is strong. You have got the insight from working in the

:22:25.:22:27.

American system, how do they view what has been domination by British

:22:28.:22:33.

cyclist for five or six years? It almost feels like it is coming to an

:22:34.:22:36.

end a little bit, but let's not speak too soon. What is the view to

:22:37.:22:42.

what is going on here? There is the target. Britain has been so

:22:43.:22:48.

dominant. It will be tough for them, they have the target on their back,

:22:49.:22:52.

whenever we have our review meetings or preseason meetings, we are

:22:53.:22:57.

looking at a medal tally for the World Championships, Britain set the

:22:58.:23:04.

benchmark, those are the goals we are trying to achieve. You look at

:23:05.:23:08.

what written has done and you think, why can't we do that? The other

:23:09.:23:14.

countries are doing it as well. That was Britain's Outlook years ago.

:23:15.:23:20.

Germany or France, if they can do it, why can't we? Everybody is

:23:21.:23:28.

gunning for Britain. We will move onto the sprint, it has been a tough

:23:29.:23:33.

Championships for Becky James, a year ago, for medals, but a bronze

:23:34.:23:38.

so far. The final event for her was the one in which she was the

:23:39.:23:42.

defending world champion, the keirin, but she was up against

:23:43.:23:44.

Kristina Vogel. We are ready to go. Anna Meares

:23:45.:24:03.

feeling the consequences of taking a year out. She does not quite have

:24:04.:24:08.

the depth she has had in the past. The experience is there. She should

:24:09.:24:13.

not be ruled out, because she will know how to place herself. Kristina

:24:14.:24:20.

Vogel mirrors her male counterpart, Francois Pervis, head and shoulders

:24:21.:24:25.

stronger than the others. It is never sure in the keirin. Becky

:24:26.:24:31.

James did not look as strong as I was expecting in the previous round.

:24:32.:24:38.

Sandie Clair, from Anna Meares, Vicky James, Kristina Vogel, Daniela

:24:39.:24:44.

Gaxiola, and at the back, Elena Brezhniva. The World Championship

:24:45.:24:53.

final, eight laps of the track. They will have six to go when they

:24:54.:24:56.

crossed the line in the next two seconds. 33 kilometres an hour. The

:24:57.:25:08.

dramatic nature of the music over the tannoy ratchets up the tension

:25:09.:25:16.

for the crowd. Everybody happy to stay in position for the moment.

:25:17.:25:24.

Still five laps remaining. 36 kilometres an hour, the bike. Sandie

:25:25.:25:29.

Clair, Anna Meares, Becky James, Kristina Vogel, Daniela Gaxiola and

:25:30.:25:37.

Elena Brezhniva, in that order. 40 kilometres an hour.

:25:38.:25:52.

One lap to go until we lose the motorbike. Already, Anna Meares

:25:53.:26:02.

starting to check behind. As soon as they start to see somebody

:26:03.:26:05.

accelerate, they will try to hold them on the shoulder. Sandie Clair

:26:06.:26:10.

laying off the bike. Kristina Vogel will make her move soon. The race is

:26:11.:26:17.

on. Just over two laps to go, Sandie Clair in front, Anna Meares in

:26:18.:26:23.

second, Eddie James looking to see where Kristina Vogel is. The Russian

:26:24.:26:33.

rider boxed in. Sandie Clair is being left behind. They take the

:26:34.:26:41.

bell. It is going to be between the front three.

:26:42.:26:49.

Kristina Vogel has the speed, it is Kristina Vogel who takes the crown,

:26:50.:26:55.

Anna Meares with the silver, and in third place, Becky James for Great

:26:56.:27:03.

Britain. Kristina Vogel is a triple world champion, she is one of the

:27:04.:27:06.

Starts of this week in Colombia. The team sprint hold on the opening

:27:07.:27:13.

night, the individual sprint gold, and she has book ended it with the

:27:14.:27:18.

keirin gold. Becky James' world title has gone, but she fought all

:27:19.:27:23.

the way. Nobody was going to beat Kristina Vogel today, but Becky

:27:24.:27:28.

James spotted her going past, she fought her way up, she got onto her

:27:29.:27:32.

wheel, as soon as Kristina Vogel dropped down, she was on the

:27:33.:27:37.

shoulder of Anna Meares. She is congratulating Kristina Vogel. She

:27:38.:27:44.

knew, I have got to hold this wheel. Experience got that silver medal.

:27:45.:27:49.

Becky James fought hard, courageously, to take the bronze

:27:50.:27:53.

medal, that was the best she could hope for there.

:27:54.:27:57.

Your third time on the top step of the podium, how special does this

:27:58.:28:05.

feel? It is really special. An amazing crowd. So many feelings come

:28:06.:28:15.

to me. I never accepted that I would win three gold medals. You have

:28:16.:28:19.

worked so hard, you have raised almost every day, how are you

:28:20.:28:24.

feeling? I am now tired, but I want to party now! After yesterday, I am

:28:25.:28:34.

good. Just be easy today, enjoy my ride, see what will happen, push

:28:35.:28:40.

myself, and it worked. The last round, push, push, push. Just happy

:28:41.:28:49.

that it worked. Congratulations, a bronze medal,

:28:50.:28:55.

watching the race a game, you did not put a foot wrong, you were on

:28:56.:29:01.

the wheel. Definitely, when Kristina Vogel went, I could have sat on the

:29:02.:29:05.

wheel of Anna Meares, and I thought somebody could come round. I was

:29:06.:29:11.

going to chase the wheel, I could feel Anna Meares underneath me. It

:29:12.:29:16.

was hard, going through the turn, but I cannot complain with a bronze

:29:17.:29:22.

medal. A really high quality, Anna Meares coming back, and Kristina

:29:23.:29:25.

Vogel, three gold medals, a phenomenal performance. She has been

:29:26.:29:30.

flying all season, through the World Cup, she has been on another level.

:29:31.:29:36.

She deserved to win the medals. I have got something to chase next

:29:37.:29:41.

year. It was always going to be difficult to replicate the success

:29:42.:29:44.

of last year, but what are your thoughts? It has been really good, I

:29:45.:29:49.

can take a lot away. I have learned a few different things. My form had

:29:50.:29:55.

been pretty good, and I have raced as well as I could. I love racing

:29:56.:29:59.

the keirin, it is nice to finish with that. There will be lots of

:30:00.:30:04.

stuff I can work on after this. Hopefully, I will come out better

:30:05.:30:08.

next year. Your thoughts will switch to Glasgow before that. Now this is

:30:09.:30:12.

at the way, that will be my focus. It is not a long way at all.

:30:13.:30:20.

Kristina Vogel unbelievable, but a great bronze medal for Becky James.

:30:21.:30:26.

It is important for her to come away with something, even though she did

:30:27.:30:31.

not defend her title. Yes, just to get on the podium. It is not what

:30:32.:30:34.

you want, but you will take it. She looked good. She could have gone a

:30:35.:30:40.

bit earlier and got to the front, she could have won it. She could

:30:41.:30:46.

have also cut Anna Meares off. She did not lean on her quite enough,

:30:47.:30:50.

she could have closed the door and made it hard for her. She went a

:30:51.:30:58.

long longer, way higher on the track. She talked about tactics and

:30:59.:31:09.

not liking her tactics in the individual sprint.

:31:10.:31:22.

The keirin is hard. All the other athletes, it is hard to get right.

:31:23.:31:31.

There are so many variables going on. Like I was telling you a moment

:31:32.:31:38.

ago, you are in the race and behind a motorbike. When do I go, when do I

:31:39.:31:45.

go? Shane Sutton used to tell me, the first time you think it is

:31:46.:31:49.

generally when you should go. That tactic seemed to work for me. I

:31:50.:31:54.

think she had it in her legs that she should not be too disappointed.

:31:55.:32:02.

You mentioned Shane Sutton. We caught up with him for his

:32:03.:32:06.

assessment. I am sure you will have time to reflect on these

:32:07.:32:11.

championships as you make your way back to Manchester. Five medals,

:32:12.:32:16.

what is your initial assessment? We were hoping for six medals. A little

:32:17.:32:21.

bit of disappointment in certain events. There are a lot of

:32:22.:32:25.

positives. We are by we are. There is a lot of work to do. It is back

:32:26.:32:32.

to the drawing board. No medals at all for the Great Britain men's

:32:33.:32:37.

team. I think 1998 was the last time that happened. How concerned are you

:32:38.:32:43.

and how concerned should we be? It is about going back and addressing

:32:44.:32:46.

where we went wrong and what areas we need to work on. The boys will be

:32:47.:32:55.

a bit disappointed. It will give them time to reflect and say, we

:32:56.:33:00.

have got to get on with it. Well done to the girls, to be honest.

:33:01.:33:06.

Because we are used to seeing the much British success, we are

:33:07.:33:09.

surprised when there is so little success from the men 's team. Where

:33:10.:33:15.

has it gone wrong? It went wrong going into Christmas. The World Cup

:33:16.:33:24.

in Manchester was good. Coming back in after Christmas, we were not

:33:25.:33:28.

where we wanted them to be. We had to rejigger a few things here and

:33:29.:33:32.

there. One thing and another and you are where you are, you need to

:33:33.:33:38.

accept that and move on. The success of the British team has been built

:33:39.:33:47.

on the endurance team. It is very disappointing for them. I would

:33:48.:33:55.

challenge you. The men's sprint team, with the Chris Hoy and his

:33:56.:34:04.

reign, we were untouchable. We cannot win everything. The boys must

:34:05.:34:10.

accept that. Hopefully we can turn it around. What kind review will you

:34:11.:34:18.

have after these championships? They are setting a plan in place in

:34:19.:34:24.

Manchester. We have great athletes. They will understand they have

:34:25.:34:29.

underperformed. Five medals at World Championship is, in another sport,

:34:30.:34:34.

you would be jumping for joy. Unfortunately, cycling has been so

:34:35.:34:40.

dominant, people expect. As long as we roll up our sleeves and get back

:34:41.:34:47.

to basics, we will be fine. Katie Archibald has come in here and she

:34:48.:34:56.

has performed. It was a great ride for the girls. Look at Laura again.

:34:57.:35:11.

Kein, he has made a massive improvement. We are moving in the

:35:12.:35:16.

right direction but it will take time. Make no excuses, this is a

:35:17.:35:22.

World Championship. We came here to perform and probably did not get

:35:23.:35:26.

what we wanted. At the end of the day, we will reflect and be better

:35:27.:35:35.

next time around. Will Dave continued to lead the team? Only

:35:36.:35:45.

Dave can answer that. His passion is still there. I know that. His hunger

:35:46.:35:51.

is there. He is a busy man. Let's hope we can all turn it around

:35:52.:35:56.

together. Jail not pulling the punches. They were tough questions.

:35:57.:36:04.

One of the phrases we heard was, back to the drawing board. They know

:36:05.:36:13.

what they are doing. They have won multiple medals. What is it about

:36:14.:36:18.

going back to the drawing board? What can they get so wrong? When you

:36:19.:36:23.

are dealing with sport, you will know yourself, there are so many

:36:24.:36:27.

ways of being successful in terms of an athlete. Athletes and coaches

:36:28.:36:32.

think it is a strict rule, routinely go through. You do this and this and

:36:33.:36:36.

the outcome is this. We all know in sport there are so many different

:36:37.:36:41.

ways to attack training programme and training cycle. Some things will

:36:42.:36:46.

work for athletes and some will not. They are trying to find the new

:36:47.:36:50.

edge. What will give them the edge in Rio? Maybe they are trying new

:36:51.:36:55.

things and new tactics. Some of the events have changed little bit,

:36:56.:36:58.

especially for the women. There are new rules in place. In my day and

:36:59.:37:07.

Chris 's day, we only had to show up. Now the riders need to go out

:37:08.:37:11.

and do the small races to even qualify. A lot of things have

:37:12.:37:15.

changed. Everyone else has two played by the same rules. There is

:37:16.:37:22.

still plenty more time for development. Again, I would rather

:37:23.:37:31.

be losing now. Do you think the Whole Road cycling staff has taken

:37:32.:37:36.

some of the emphasis of the men 's side? -- stuff. To separate the two

:37:37.:37:50.

is kind of hard. Especially, even as a GB coach, they are wondering, are

:37:51.:37:56.

they getting the full attention and investment from Dave? I would like

:37:57.:38:04.

to think... They are completely separate entities. I do not think

:38:05.:38:11.

there are any issues. We will move on to the men's sprint and a French

:38:12.:38:17.

man looking for gold medal number three.

:38:18.:38:31.

The first race in the bronze medal match up between the Russian and the

:38:32.:38:40.

Australian. Just having a think about it, five

:38:41.:39:04.

medals for the GB women and none for the blokes. Of the top of my head, I

:39:05.:39:11.

know that none for the blokes is right. It is the women who are

:39:12.:39:15.

leading the way for Great Britain. I think it is going to be four.

:39:16.:39:24.

Sorry, five medals, yes. With two gold, silver and two bronze. The

:39:25.:39:46.

Australian makes his move. He stays up as late as possible and weights

:39:47.:40:00.

over half the back straight I -- half the back straight. Here is the

:40:01.:40:09.

sprint once again. Let's have a look at how close it was. They have been

:40:10.:40:19.

faultless all week, the tactics. He has been the one pushing the wind.

:40:20.:40:24.

It might be starting to take its toll now. He has lost a bit of

:40:25.:40:38.

edge. Francois Pervis against the defending champion. It is a bit

:40:39.:40:49.

scary, to be fair. I am feeling slightly intimidated. I am 30 metres

:40:50.:40:57.

away. The men's sprint final. The best of three.

:40:58.:41:10.

They must continue now at least at walking pace. He is dictating the

:41:11.:41:24.

pace of the race at this moment, the commissar. He seems to be content

:41:25.:41:30.

they have managed that. He hands over to his fellow commissar. They

:41:31.:41:42.

are playing cat and mouse. They need to keep the bikes moving. They did

:41:43.:41:49.

not manage to do that convincingly. That was very foolish. We will do

:41:50.:41:53.

that all again in a moment or two. And, at the second time of asking,

:41:54.:42:14.

in this first race in the sprint final, it runs away. Bruce just get

:42:15.:42:26.

up around the stadium will stop flags fluttering away.

:42:27.:42:43.

Similar tactics to a minute or two number Aago. They are remembering to

:42:44.:42:55.

keep things moving. -- a couple of minutes ago. He is safe now. If he

:42:56.:43:04.

wants to stop, he is free to do so. Ironically, he decides to start

:43:05.:43:11.

accelerating at that point. He is trying to get Purvis to accelerate.

:43:12.:43:26.

They take the pressure off the back wheel and freeze it by using sheer

:43:27.:43:33.

muscle power. The concentration on the face of Pervis. He does not want

:43:34.:43:44.

to take the front position. He is trying really hard to get the front

:43:45.:43:59.

position. Just out of principle, Pervis is trying to stop him. He

:44:00.:44:04.

gave him a piercing look. Now the sprint starts. The sprint

:44:05.:44:29.

round the back straight is well and truly under way. Francois Pervis is

:44:30.:44:37.

drawing level. Yes, he is. Francois Pervis takes this race. It was one

:44:38.:44:46.

with a lap to go. He allowed Francois Pervis to keep the height.

:44:47.:44:50.

That is all he needed, that kind of advantage, to accelerate down the

:44:51.:44:56.

back straight. You can see how he used it to accelerate into the

:44:57.:45:00.

slipstream. He started to power around the outside on the final

:45:01.:45:05.

bend. He knew he had it. It looks close to us but they him it was

:45:06.:45:12.

never in doubt. It was cat and mouse. When it got going, it was

:45:13.:45:18.

super fast. A little reminder of what we have here. The European

:45:19.:45:32.

champion from Russia is going for bronze against Glaitzer. Glaitzer

:45:33.:45:40.

have to win this time. Dmitriev is one win away from the bronze medal.

:45:41.:45:45.

A convincing right by him in the previous round. He is riding out in

:45:46.:45:51.

a pattern he has set out, which is to go to the front and move around

:45:52.:45:56.

the track. He needs to stay high as late as possible. He has 180 metres

:45:57.:46:03.

to go into the back straight and then he will accelerate hard. He

:46:04.:46:10.

mixes up his tactics. We have just gone beyond the line on the track,

:46:11.:46:15.

the half lap mark. That is why it is OK to do a track stand at this

:46:16.:46:21.

point. The commissar has his stopwatch running, 30 seconds the

:46:22.:46:25.

limit. If they are not moving by that time, the gun is fired and they

:46:26.:46:29.

can restart the race. They can do this a maximum of twice. Every once

:46:30.:46:40.

in a blue moon, somebody takes the opportunity to attack and goes for a

:46:41.:46:46.

long one. It is very rare. This is generally when it happens, somebody

:46:47.:46:52.

just starts to think about their track stand, forget the opposition,

:46:53.:46:56.

give them an opportunity to disappear up the road. It does not

:46:57.:47:00.

happen very often. Denis Dmitriev at the front. Just

:47:01.:47:21.

over a lap and a half remaining. He will try and write this race the

:47:22.:47:31.

same way again. Go high, control. Matthew Glaetzer keeping his eye on

:47:32.:47:32.

the Russian. Denis Dmitriev claims the bronze

:47:33.:47:49.

panel. That is the first tactical error I have seen from Matthew

:47:50.:47:53.

Glaetzer. In the previous round, it was his superior acceleration that

:47:54.:47:59.

one Denis Dmitriev the race. Matthew Glaetzer thought he would make it as

:48:00.:48:03.

late as possible so there was no room for the Russian to come back,

:48:04.:48:07.

but that was what his strength is, the sharp acceleration. Denis

:48:08.:48:17.

Dmitriev a convincing winner. The winner of the kilometre and the

:48:18.:48:20.

winner of the keirin. Going for the hat-trick.

:48:21.:48:31.

Three laps of the track, potentially, to decide the outcome

:48:32.:48:37.

of the sprint World Championship. Some very dire music in the

:48:38.:48:46.

background! He looks to be very relaxed,

:48:47.:49:12.

Francois Pervis, knocking around the track, and up into the stands. He

:49:13.:49:22.

will need to be fully focused. Otherwise, we will go to a deciding

:49:23.:49:31.

race. The wind-up is starting already, both riders getting maximum

:49:32.:49:37.

height. The pace increasing all the time. He is going to go for the

:49:38.:49:45.

inside, which is what Francois Pervis wants him to do.

:49:46.:49:55.

Can Francois Pervis claim the gold medal? Francois Pervis is the world

:49:56.:50:04.

champion. It is the third gold medal of the week. It is not about the

:50:05.:50:11.

time, but what a time it was, to claim the gold medal. A ready and

:50:12.:50:17.

sequence of sprints from Francois Pervis. It is the 11th time in his

:50:18.:50:25.

career that he has won a World Championship medal, and it is the

:50:26.:50:26.

fourth time that it has been gold. A magnificent performance, this is a

:50:27.:50:38.

special place for you. Yes, three world titles, it is a first time for

:50:39.:50:42.

me, the first time I have won the individual sprint, and the keirin. I

:50:43.:50:52.

did an amazing kilometre. The public has given me big support, everybody

:50:53.:50:59.

pushed me. It is my second home! Can you say which of the three victories

:51:00.:51:05.

was the most important for you? The sprint. It is the most important

:51:06.:51:23.

event. And the most needful event. Everybody says, if you win the

:51:24.:51:29.

sprint, you are the best. I beat the world champion from last year. It is

:51:30.:51:33.

a beautiful final. Do not if -- I do not know if they

:51:34.:51:39.

do the man of the match, but he would win it for the men, and

:51:40.:51:44.

Kristina Vogel for the women, three gold medals each. Completely

:51:45.:51:48.

dominant, both of them, Francois Pervis looking unbeatable. When you

:51:49.:51:54.

get to an event, there is a lot of anxiety, you do not know how you are

:51:55.:51:59.

going to go, but you get a good feel for it as soon as you arrive, you

:52:00.:52:03.

start training, and his results have been amazing. He is on point, and

:52:04.:52:11.

his confidence is through the roof. Him and Kristina Vogel, tactics

:52:12.:52:15.

become secondary. You are that confident, you can even make small

:52:16.:52:18.

mistakes, you believe in yourself so much. It is great to see the

:52:19.:52:25.

excitement in his face, he was so happy, all that hard work has paid

:52:26.:52:28.

off, he will remember that for the rest of his life. We have already

:52:29.:52:34.

heard from Shane Sutton, but what about the BBC voice of wisdom, Chris

:52:35.:52:40.

Boardman? The sun has dipped down here,

:52:41.:52:45.

drawing the World Championships to a close, but it is time to reflect on

:52:46.:52:51.

Great Britain's performance, five medals, from the women's side, the

:52:52.:52:55.

worst performance from Great Britain's men since 1998. I was

:52:56.:53:03.

trying to cut back myself, I was there in 1998. It is a long time,

:53:04.:53:08.

they have set the bar so high, but by anybody's standards, it is very

:53:09.:53:13.

disappointing, at their form is good. They are just behind the curve

:53:14.:53:17.

in every event. I would be concerned. That is the biggest

:53:18.:53:23.

worry. We cannot work out what caused the problem. A review would

:53:24.:53:29.

take place, what would you say? You have got to start with the process

:53:30.:53:34.

of looking back, week by week, have you got here, what are the

:53:35.:53:38.

differences, what have we done this year, try to tease it out. Also, the

:53:39.:53:47.

competition was so strong, we saw world's best times set at sea level,

:53:48.:53:53.

so it was not easy. Looking at the individual performances, the pursuit

:53:54.:53:58.

team were not where they wanted to be at Christmas, it was always going

:53:59.:54:02.

to be tough, what did you make of Jason Kenny? Not massively behind

:54:03.:54:08.

the curve, he was there or thereabouts, but when you are

:54:09.:54:10.

talking about half the bike length nicking the difference, Francois

:54:11.:54:18.

Pervis was in phenomenal form, and he kept it up all the way through,

:54:19.:54:22.

he was super strong. And Kristina Vogel armour they dominated. Let's

:54:23.:54:28.

look at Laura Trott, her silver medal today. She fought hard, just

:54:29.:54:35.

missing a bit of edge, up against the super-strong Sarah Hammer. She

:54:36.:54:40.

still managed to get a silver medal. Another positive, Katie Archibald

:54:41.:54:46.

coming away with a rainbow Jersey. There were raised eyebrows when

:54:47.:54:51.

Danny King was not in the team. You put in a youngster like that, in the

:54:52.:54:57.

final, a big scrap, and she threw in a long term, she was fantastic.

:54:58.:55:01.

Everybody will analyse the performances, what has been the

:55:02.:55:07.

highlight? The Colombian victory in the points race, that has got to be

:55:08.:55:11.

it for me, it was great for the crowd, good for cycling, it was a

:55:12.:55:16.

great spectacle. It looked as though it might lift the roof of! It would

:55:17.:55:21.

not take too much! Chris Boardman has been part of

:55:22.:55:26.

British cycling for many years, he was part of the technology

:55:27.:55:30.

innovation that has been so important, so if he says he is

:55:31.:55:34.

concerned about the men, there is reason for concern. I was not

:55:35.:55:39.

concerned until he said it! Whether he was just trying to make good TV

:55:40.:55:46.

or not, I do not know. Jason has now assumed the role that Chris had,

:55:47.:55:49.

they will be doing a lot of research, seeing what new

:55:50.:55:52.

innovations are coming up over the next few years. Like I mentioned

:55:53.:55:58.

earlier, some of the equipment they used at the Olympics is not allowed

:55:59.:56:01.

at the regular World Championships, which sounds absurd, but they keep

:56:02.:56:07.

that equipment pristine for every four years. Like Chris said, they

:56:08.:56:13.

are not 1 million miles away, it is not like they have had a disastrous

:56:14.:56:18.

Championships. The medal count is not what they wanted, but again, we

:56:19.:56:25.

are talking tiny things across the board. You talked about how the

:56:26.:56:34.

Americans look at the Brits, is it a case of the Brits not being behind,

:56:35.:56:38.

but everybody else having caught up, and it is like going back to the

:56:39.:56:43.

drawing board, so we have to be better again? Had you keep

:56:44.:56:48.

improving? Exactly, everybody charging towards Britain, they have

:56:49.:56:56.

now passed Britain, and now Britain are scratching their heads,

:56:57.:56:59.

thinking, what have we done wrong? In terms of performance, and the

:57:00.:57:04.

benchmarks in terms of time and data, maybe they all where they want

:57:05.:57:10.

to be, but everybody else has stepped it up. But I would rather be

:57:11.:57:16.

the underdog and scratching my head, tried to build motivation and

:57:17.:57:22.

passion and drive, to get what we want in Rio de Janeiro. The best

:57:23.:57:26.

performance from the Brits, you picked out Joanna Russell. She is

:57:27.:57:32.

just like Francois Pervis, she had a fantastic Championships. She is at

:57:33.:57:40.

the peak of her career. Seeing the excitement on her face, it is great

:57:41.:57:47.

to see, and hopefully she does not get pulled down to much by everybody

:57:48.:57:50.

else and the negative experience of the event. Thank you, safe journey

:57:51.:57:56.

back to America, we are jealous of you going to the Sunshine! We are

:57:57.:58:02.

back again next weekend, with more action from a bank track, but no

:58:03.:58:12.

wheels this time. There is a 35 strong British team, with plenty of

:58:13.:58:16.

new faces, and some old ones to look out for. Coverage continues

:58:17.:58:23.

throughout the weekend. The bare statistics do not make great reading

:58:24.:58:26.

from a British perspective, the worst championships in a decade,

:58:27.:58:31.

since 2004, and the men drawing a blank on the medal table. But with

:58:32.:58:36.

two and a half years to go until the Olympics, if you needed a wake-up

:58:37.:58:40.

call, this is the right time for it to happen. Goodbye.

:58:41.:59:01.

Jonathan Edwards introduces highlights of Sunday's action at the Track Cycling World Championships in Cali, Colombia, where Britain's Laura Trott began as one of the favourites for the women's omnium. Trott won two gold medals at the 2012 Olympics, including one in the omnium, but in the corresponding event in the 2013 World Championships she ended with silver behind the USA's Sarah Hammer. Trott's partner, three-time Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny, is also one of the leading contenders in the men's sprint.
