LineFromTo

Good afternoon. Welcome to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. 22,000

:00:35.:00:43.

people have been through the doors here at the Vale drome. This is what

:00:44.:00:52.

they've come to see today. Very shortly we will see the women's

:00:53.:01:00.

semifinals. Then we will see Jason Kenny in the men's keirin 2nd round.

:01:01.:01:04.

His fiancee Laura Trott shortly after that in the final race of the

:01:05.:01:12.

women's omnium. She leads the points standings. Hopefully, Jason Kenny in

:01:13.:01:15.

the men's keirin final but everything could happen. Finally,

:01:16.:01:21.

the men's Madison with Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish joining

:01:22.:01:29.

forces are probably for the 1st time. I'm joined by Sir Chris Hoy

:01:30.:01:34.

and Dame Sarah Storey. We're starting with the man who filled

:01:35.:01:40.

your shoes as the king of British sprinting. Jason Kenny was through

:01:41.:01:45.

to the best of 3 final. Simon Brotherton and Chris Boardman can

:01:46.:01:48.

tell is exactly what happened. COMMENTATOR: What a battle this

:01:49.:02:09.

promises to be. This will come down to tactics. Both have shown

:02:10.:02:12.

themselves to be the strongest sprinters here. The right riders in

:02:13.:02:19.

this final, for sure. Jason Kenny looking to be the world sprint

:02:20.:02:23.

champion for a 2nd time in his career. A 3rd rainbow jersey for

:02:24.:02:34.

him. Best of 3 final. Glaetzer 23 years of age from Adelaide. A rider

:02:35.:02:43.

on the way up. He has beaten 2 world champions to get here, including the

:02:44.:02:54.

defending champion from France. He is accelerating, trying to make it

:02:55.:03:01.

look like he isn't. He nearly tempted Kenny to coincide and

:03:02.:03:05.

stalled him. They take the bell and Kenny goes up the banking. Can Kenny

:03:06.:03:12.

close the gap down the back straight road on by the London crowd. On the

:03:13.:03:20.

line. I think the Australian just gets it on the line. Glaetzer has

:03:21.:03:27.

been excellent in this series of races. The pressure is on him

:03:28.:03:33.

because he is so close to the gold medal. Here we go. The sprint is on.

:03:34.:03:41.

They take the bell. Next time over the line, fighting for 1st position.

:03:42.:03:47.

Glaetzer on the outside of Kenny. Kenny is digging really deep. It is

:03:48.:03:53.

on for the Australian. But what a run from Jason Kenny! He is still

:03:54.:03:58.

alive in this final. It will go to the wire. The World Championship

:03:59.:04:06.

final goes to a decider. Great Britain against Australia. Jason

:04:07.:04:13.

Kenny, the Olympic champion against Matthew Glaetzer will lead on this

:04:14.:04:17.

opening lap. He is not short of support. We talked about the power

:04:18.:04:26.

needed for the sprint finish. Jason Kenny has power to wait for that

:04:27.:04:31.

superb acceleration that Glaetzer kept him pinned with in that superb

:04:32.:04:37.

previous round. They are going at a fair old lick. They both want to get

:04:38.:04:42.

this 1 under way. Glaetzer did well when he led in the previous round.

:04:43.:04:48.

He might see himself as having an advantage, if he can stop Kenny from

:04:49.:04:53.

gaining the front position. Riding with the Australian here. Jason

:04:54.:05:00.

Kenny keeping him in close proximity. They are not hanging

:05:01.:05:05.

around. A lap and a half to go. They want to get it over with. Different

:05:06.:05:10.

tactics. Glazer will lead from the front. Jason Kenny looks to get the

:05:11.:05:16.

advantage of going up but he has a lot of work to do. Into the back

:05:17.:05:21.

straight. Can Jason Kenny claw the gap back. Into the finishing

:05:22.:05:25.

straight they go. Jason Kenny is going to do it! He is the champion

:05:26.:05:31.

of the world. For the 3rd time in his career. His 2nd world sprint

:05:32.:05:39.

crown. The Olympic champion is back where he likes racing best. At the

:05:40.:05:49.

Velodrome in London. Gold for Jason Kenny and he did it the hard way.

:05:50.:05:56.

That was much sprinting at its absolute best. STUDIO: Jason Kenny

:05:57.:06:05.

absolutely elated as you would expect. His fiancee Laura Trott. A

:06:06.:06:12.

funny little wink between them. After that, I'm afraid he was sick

:06:13.:06:16.

into a bucket because of the effort it had taken out of him! How big an

:06:17.:06:22.

achievement is that? As big as anything he has achieved so far.

:06:23.:06:28.

Definitely up there with his Olympic performance in 2012. So great to see

:06:29.:06:33.

him back on form. People were mystified why he cannot reproduce

:06:34.:06:39.

this form year after year. Form is elusive. Whatever has happened, in

:06:40.:06:44.

his head, he has got himself together. You see what it meant to

:06:45.:06:48.

him as he crossed the line. He is a calm guy who doesn't give away a lot

:06:49.:06:52.

usually but you can see what it meant to him. Sarah, important

:06:53.:07:00.

timing in an Olympic year. Definitely. You can't get better

:07:01.:07:07.

timing than that. We are going to the women's sprint semifinals. This

:07:08.:07:13.

will be cat and mouse. COMMENTATOR: Hello, everyone. We are about to go

:07:14.:07:19.

with this 1st semifinal in the women's sprint. 1 of the all-time

:07:20.:07:22.

greats in the white with the greenhouse it. Anna Meares, the

:07:23.:07:34.

Olympic champion who beat the British contender in the Olympics.

:07:35.:07:47.

She has had some time out of the sport. She looked as though she was

:07:48.:07:52.

heading for retirement. Thinking about life after cycling. She

:07:53.:07:57.

realised she was still enjoying it. Straight back in at the top level as

:07:58.:08:04.

we would expect. It is a 3 lap race, the best of 3 semifinal. The Chinese

:08:05.:08:11.

rider will lead off on the opening half lap. Jun Hong Lin showed good

:08:12.:08:27.

form in the World Cup meeting. Meares took time out after the

:08:28.:08:31.

Olympic Games in London and has been slowly working her way back. She has

:08:32.:08:36.

been plagued by back problems over the last year. She roared back

:08:37.:08:42.

strongly in the Australian national Championships at the start of the

:08:43.:08:46.

year adding to her enormous collection of national

:08:47.:08:50.

championships. It seems to be an issue that they are able to manage

:08:51.:08:59.

at the moment. Hoping for a clear run, injury free until the Rio

:09:00.:09:05.

Olympics. Very carefully riding here, almost touching the back

:09:06.:09:10.

wheel. Trying to get this sprint under way with 2 laps under way.

:09:11.:09:23.

Moving up the track now. Trying to encourage Meares.

:09:24.:09:37.

Meares being watched very carefully by Jun Hong Lin. The sprint has

:09:38.:09:44.

opened up. The Chinese rider keeps looking behind her. She needs to get

:09:45.:09:50.

going here and try and hang on with Meares trying to go around the

:09:51.:09:54.

outside and finding it difficult. It has been taken by Jun Hong Lin from

:09:55.:10:00.

China. An excellent result for the Chinese rider. An interesting

:10:01.:10:06.

result. Almost as I mentioned experience, Meares allowed herself

:10:07.:10:13.

to be dictated to. It was very close. No potential for accelerating

:10:14.:10:18.

onto the wheel and using the slipstream. She was very close all

:10:19.:10:23.

the way through. Left at all to do in the final bend. A bit of a

:10:24.:10:32.

surprise. Anna Meares didn't have the speed to come around and get

:10:33.:10:40.

past Jun Hong Lin. She has one more chance if she is to make it through

:10:41.:10:43.

into the World Championship final. Junhong Lin still with her nose in

:10:44.:10:55.

front in the semifinal. Vogel is one of the fans favourites

:10:56.:11:17.

from around the world. She is up against a very strong Chinese

:11:18.:11:32.

opponent. Their best sprinter over the last ten years hasn't even made

:11:33.:11:44.

it to the final. They were disqualified as they were in the

:11:45.:11:48.

run-up to the Olympic Games with the changeover. Clearly, though, the

:11:49.:11:52.

physical ability is there in the team. Zhong leads off but you would

:11:53.:12:06.

favour Vogel. She is a very flamboyant competitor, gives great

:12:07.:12:09.

interviews, very succinct and strong character. Christina Vogel has come

:12:10.:12:17.

back so well after being seriously injured in 2009. Involved in an

:12:18.:12:23.

accident on the road. A couple of days in a coma with various broken

:12:24.:12:27.

bones. She has fought back to the top. Works as a police officer. That

:12:28.:12:33.

will be her full-time career when she finishes cycling. She has taken

:12:34.:12:39.

time out in the lead up to the Olympic Games to concentrate on her

:12:40.:12:44.

dream of becoming Olympic sprint champion. Deciding to put some pace

:12:45.:12:53.

into this ride. Taking the lead there might have been a mistake.

:12:54.:12:59.

Letting her have the advantage. Pushing up the speed, weaving around

:13:00.:13:02.

the track to make it difficult to know which side to pass. Slowly

:13:03.:13:08.

accelerating as they take the bell. Vogel leading the way. Zhong trying

:13:09.:13:17.

to close the gap down the closing straight. Not very much. She is

:13:18.:13:28.

starting to close it. Stena -- Vogel was in a race that she didn't expect

:13:29.:13:33.

to be in. She was in an excellent position but I think she has been

:13:34.:13:38.

beaten here by the rider from China. Indeed she has. The two big names in

:13:39.:13:43.

the semifinal are both behind in the best of three series. That was

:13:44.:13:51.

beautifully ridden by Zhong. She didn't panic. Accelerated into the

:13:52.:13:56.

slipstream. A final kick in the home straight took her over the top of

:13:57.:14:04.

the German. STUDIO: China have the advantage in both semifinals but it

:14:05.:14:07.

is best of three. We will be back for the second race is in age. It is

:14:08.:14:15.

the keirin coming on. The warm weather biker leads out and then

:14:16.:14:20.

peels away and the races sprint. It can be dramatic and quite dangerous

:14:21.:14:25.

have a look at Jason Kenny's first ride this morning. Talk is it. --

:14:26.:14:31.

talk as through it. Unfortunately, the American goes

:14:32.:14:41.

down, too. It's one of those events. There's not much space to manoeuvre.

:14:42.:14:47.

The guys are going fast. Jason is doing all right here. Watch the

:14:48.:14:54.

rider, the Polish man, coming out on his lane, almost causing a second

:14:55.:15:00.

accident but Jason kept his cool. Then the German on the outside. Goes

:15:01.:15:06.

around the outside. And Jason are safely through to the second round.

:15:07.:15:10.

Showing that the power of Jason Kenny whose speedy as well but has

:15:11.:15:15.

unbelievable balance for the visitors who he will face in the

:15:16.:15:19.

second round. Obviously last night, winning the Sprint, physically

:15:20.:15:24.

exhausting for him. At the productive it to back-up? Very tough

:15:25.:15:29.

but the hardest part is the morning session. During the qualifying ride.

:15:30.:15:34.

You got to do it safely. He's had a chance to recover, and knows this is

:15:35.:15:38.

the last session and we are hopefully on for a medal if you can

:15:39.:15:42.

get through this. COMMENTATOR: As you would expect and

:15:43.:15:50.

excellent line-up for the Keirin second round. Kelemen is the current

:15:51.:15:59.

champion. You have the champion from Great Britain, is also previously

:16:00.:16:05.

won the title. He's getting a hero 's welcome as he returns to the

:16:06.:16:09.

scene of his triumph last night. The New Zealander has a gold medal in

:16:10.:16:16.

the team Sprint as does Sam Webster. The German has become the new world

:16:17.:16:23.

kilo champion. And the Russian is a European silver medallist in this

:16:24.:16:27.

race. A collapse of the track. The journey bike at the front increasing

:16:28.:16:32.

its place. Before disappearing with 2.5 laps to go. And then the race is

:16:33.:16:38.

on. They have to stay behind it. He's happy to take the last position

:16:39.:16:42.

at the moment. Having watched the footage a few times from that

:16:43.:16:46.

morning, looked in great shape, looking around, sprinting full tilt,

:16:47.:16:51.

monitoring things and calculating what he needed to do just to

:16:52.:16:57.

qualify, so he may feel stiff after yesterday's escapades, which he got

:16:58.:17:00.

a great reward for, of course, but he looks good this morning. The

:17:01.:17:05.

riders have been through the same process, so everybody is at a

:17:06.:17:09.

similar level of fatigue. You have to fill it in the first three, and

:17:10.:17:14.

then go through to the final. -- finish. Then you are going to the

:17:15.:17:21.

minor final. A good competition here for Jason Kenny from Great Britain.

:17:22.:17:27.

I think he could get into the top three here. The Russian is the first

:17:28.:17:37.

rider behind the bike and then the two riders from New Zealand there.

:17:38.:17:42.

Immediately following the Russian. Dawkins is the first of the two

:17:43.:17:47.

Kiwis. Sam Webster, the Commonwealth Sprint champion, is wearing white

:17:48.:17:54.

gloves. Then the last rider, who won the last title, brought to a great

:17:55.:18:00.

crescendo and the rider in the blue, with a red and white stripe down his

:18:01.:18:05.

back is Kelemen, the European champion Czech Republic. Jason Kenny

:18:06.:18:14.

up the rear. It will be interesting to see whether the New Zealanders

:18:15.:18:17.

tried to use their strength in numbers fall it looks like they

:18:18.:18:23.

will. At the moment, Dawkins going to the front. The kilo champion is

:18:24.:18:32.

on his wheels. Jason Kenny in third place looking hungry. Kelemen at the

:18:33.:18:36.

back. Following in second place, Dawkins. He is right on his heels.

:18:37.:18:44.

One lap to go. He is big, strong, powerful and racing at the front,

:18:45.:18:50.

Dawkins is trying to chase them down. Jason Kenny is in a good

:18:51.:18:53.

position to qualify for the final. Jason Kenny is across the line. He

:18:54.:19:00.

rode that absolutely beautifully. You could see that he said, right,

:19:01.:19:06.

I'm in third place. I just need to stop them coming around. He was

:19:07.:19:10.

looking backwards during the Sprint. He just needed to do enough to

:19:11.:19:17.

qualify. They could not have done better. A great leader, Kelemen. So,

:19:18.:19:25.

he led from the front and stayed there all the way round but we know

:19:26.:19:28.

he has got the staying power and show that over at four laps the

:19:29.:19:33.

other day, winning the gold medals and Dawkins was always competitive

:19:34.:19:36.

at the front of the race and untroubled in terms of the final but

:19:37.:19:40.

Jason Kenny, as well, in terms of making it through to a final in a

:19:41.:19:45.

Keirin, that was about as untroubled as it gets. He will be happy with

:19:46.:19:50.

that. It was almost a repeat of the first round where he did what he

:19:51.:19:54.

needed to do and road with great confidence. I suppose, when evil but

:19:55.:20:00.

got a gold medal in your bag, you know you're already world champion

:20:01.:20:04.

so everything else is a bonus. He can afford to ride with confidence.

:20:05.:20:08.

It was interesting to see the New Zealanders thought about getting

:20:09.:20:12.

together but no one was going to give the opportunity. Confirmation

:20:13.:20:16.

of the result: the Russian rider just edged out. Sam Webster bringing

:20:17.:20:24.

up the rear. Here we are in the thick of the race looking at the

:20:25.:20:35.

Russian rider Shurshin. You get the indication of the hurly-burly of it

:20:36.:20:40.

in the final couple of laps of the Keirin race. Elbows out at times but

:20:41.:20:44.

that one, certainly for those at the front, a relatively clean ride and

:20:45.:20:50.

straightforward. Those three flew to the final. The second semifinal

:20:51.:20:51.

coming up now including: Perves does not appear to be on top

:20:52.:21:12.

form this week but he may prove us wrong this afternoon. The German in

:21:13.:21:20.

there as well. There is Omelchenko from Azerbaijan. And here is Awang

:21:21.:21:27.

from the lazier. The Japanese rider, who was third in the Japan track cap

:21:28.:21:36.

Keirin last year. Perves, if he is informed, had a decent draw in the

:21:37.:21:40.

semifinal and should be able to get through. We will find out what he

:21:41.:21:44.

has got in his legs now. We've not seen his form yet, that's for sure.

:21:45.:21:48.

A little bit lacklustre considering how dominant he was 12 months ago.

:21:49.:21:56.

Here is a chance to redeem himself. The German rider in this race is in

:21:57.:22:04.

second bite at the moment, Maximilian Levy. An interesting

:22:05.:22:09.

character. He finished second behind Chris Foy in the Olympic Games a few

:22:10.:22:13.

years ago in the Keirin and what a final that was and Chris Holley's

:22:14.:22:28.

six Olympic title. -- Sir Chris. The real big hitter in a semifinal

:22:29.:22:33.

line-up but Awang from the lazier is very popular and has been around for

:22:34.:22:39.

very long time as well finished with a silver medal six years ago. He is

:22:40.:22:45.

a very canny rider and will spot every opportunity. One of the best

:22:46.:22:53.

it handlers on the track. Levy, real power. One of the favourites here.

:22:54.:22:58.

Perves, something of an unknown. Lacklustre start to the week.

:22:59.:23:05.

Interesting to see if there is a surprisingly from somebody. Maybe

:23:06.:23:09.

from the Korean rider who was just behind the journey bike at the

:23:10.:23:16.

moment. He won the title of the new Asian championships. The team Sprint

:23:17.:23:23.

champion of Asia. We'll keep an eye on him. Korea and Germany leading

:23:24.:23:31.

the way. Japan in third. Awang in the yellow and black of Malaysia.

:23:32.:23:37.

Perves in the navy blue of France. And then Omelchenko from Azerbaijan.

:23:38.:23:45.

You can see them jockey for position. They can't overlap the

:23:46.:23:50.

journey bike, remember. They can accelerate early. But exactly what

:23:51.:23:57.

has happened here. Awang moving up from the rear portion of the field

:23:58.:24:01.

up into second place at the moment. Following the rider from Korea. He

:24:02.:24:07.

leads the way as he moves around the outside. A very aesthetic

:24:08.:24:11.

celebration there. One lap to go now. He leads the way. Levy. The

:24:12.:24:17.

Japanese rider tries to go around outside. Being held off by Awang at

:24:18.:24:24.

the moment. And so, Germany, Malaysia and Japan go through and

:24:25.:24:32.

the defending champion will not be able to defend his title in the

:24:33.:24:36.

final. He has not got the former. He looked out of sorts this morning. He

:24:37.:24:41.

was never a factor in this race. You can see him there, look at the gap

:24:42.:24:48.

back to Perves. He could not accelerate. It could not match it at

:24:49.:24:52.

all. Levy, the speed he went forward, sheer power, he was not

:24:53.:24:59.

going to do it, qualify. He came in lengths ahead of the opposition.

:25:00.:25:05.

Chris Holley can tell you all about Maximilian Levy, one of its great

:25:06.:25:15.

rivals over the years. Jason Kenny of course has already qualified.

:25:16.:25:18.

They will all go for gold a little later on.

:25:19.:25:22.

CLARE BALDING: It's going to be some gold medal race. Levy went so early,

:25:23.:25:26.

Chris. He was flying ahead of the rest of them. He went with about 1.5

:25:27.:25:32.

laps to go. Incredible performance. The best we've seen him since 2012.

:25:33.:25:38.

Would you make him the favourite for the final? How did you assess

:25:39.:25:43.

Jason's race? He has to conserve energy up to this point so far. He

:25:44.:25:50.

knows he can do a thousand kilos a metre, his competitor. He leaves to

:25:51.:25:57.

conserve energy. He can accelerate off the wheel. He is accelerating

:25:58.:25:59.

here. He isn't is in the perfect position. He's got

:26:00.:26:12.

feeling fantastic hasn't he? He's got nothing to prove now. If he can

:26:13.:26:17.

get a medal in the Keirin, that will be fantastic for him. Being in the

:26:18.:26:21.

form of such a big thing and you see someone like Perves gone out. The

:26:22.:26:26.

French team generally have not been good, have they? They were so

:26:27.:26:32.

dominant this time last year. The air, I'm speechless, really. Talking

:26:33.:26:44.

a big names in cycling, Meares has to do when that if she is going to

:26:45.:26:48.

contest the gold medal. COMMENTATOR: So, Meares in the last

:26:49.:26:54.

chance saloon. The 32-year-old, the world Sprint champion back in 2011,

:26:55.:26:57.

her Sprint medal was a bronze a year later in them well championships in

:26:58.:27:03.

Melbourne head of the London games and Victoria Pendleton won the gold

:27:04.:27:06.

medal that year both in London and in the World Championships. Meares

:27:07.:27:12.

was a world champion as recently as a year ago in the Keirin but that's

:27:13.:27:17.

the only world title she is one in the last four years and having lost

:27:18.:27:24.

the first ride against Junhong, she has to win this one. It great

:27:25.:27:27.

opportunity for Junhong to make it into the final and race for gold

:27:28.:27:34.

this afternoon. A real surprise therefore Meares. Junhong rode

:27:35.:27:46.

beautifully, confident ride. Going so slowly you could walk alongside

:27:47.:27:50.

them at the moment. That's exactly what they have to do. A minimum of

:27:51.:27:55.

half a lap of walking place. The number one position is obliged to

:27:56.:28:08.

take the position. Two riders just watching each

:28:09.:28:09.

other intently, looking out for any movement. Mind games between the

:28:10.:28:26.

pair of them. Meares taking it very, very slowly on the opening lap.

:28:27.:28:30.

Music in the auditorium also adds to the crowd. Surely psychological,

:28:31.:28:44.

this. Just wait until it's time to unleash that Sprint. Power comes at

:28:45.:28:51.

a cost. To sustain top speed frat handful of seconds. Great skill from

:28:52.:29:00.

both of them and Meares just trying to force the issue little bit here.

:29:01.:29:08.

So experienced, Meares. 11 times world champion. Twice in the Olympic

:29:09.:29:16.

Games. And the reigning Olympic Sprint champion.

:29:17.:29:27.

The first lap just completed between the pair of them. Junhong just

:29:28.:29:34.

content to bite her time, not being forced into doing anything she

:29:35.:29:36.

doesn't want to do by the Australian. Where just waiting to

:29:37.:29:40.

see if they were going to do a standstill. It didn't happen too

:29:41.:29:44.

much on the 250 track. It's not such a big advantage to get it in the

:29:45.:29:50.

rear position but they can do that for 30 seconds and the gun will be

:29:51.:29:53.

fired. If they continue to do that. Want a game of cat and mouse they

:29:54.:30:07.

are playing here. There is only a lap and a half to go. The rider with

:30:08.:30:14.

good acceleration is going to have an advantage. Meares is keeping it

:30:15.:30:19.

as low as possible, so she thinks it is her. Junhong Lin takes a minor

:30:20.:30:28.

advantage. It is on the line for Meares. She hasn't got enough. She

:30:29.:30:35.

will have two settle for bronze at best. What a ride from Junhong Lin.

:30:36.:30:44.

She wins in two straight rights. Meares says she is only at 90% of

:30:45.:30:53.

her best didn't quite have that extra speed. She tried to control

:30:54.:30:59.

the race holding the inside position which is exactly what she wanted to

:31:00.:31:03.

do. There was an engine difference between the two. Junhong Lin

:31:04.:31:08.

superior on formal. She could deal with the fact that she didn't have

:31:09.:31:14.

it actively right. She made her come on the wrong way round on to banking

:31:15.:31:25.

is. A worthy winner. Anna Meares who won silver in the keirin behind

:31:26.:31:33.

Christina Vogel. She didn't have a bad championship. She said she was

:31:34.:31:37.

happy with it. She won't be happy with losing straight rights to Lynne

:31:38.:31:44.

John Hahn. She has had to take a step backwards in order to move

:31:45.:31:50.

forward. A lot of her winter preparation was put on hold. Because

:31:51.:31:58.

of her black rubber. -- because of her back problem.

:31:59.:32:18.

Zhong Tianshi when the first race. We have had a few surprises in terms

:32:19.:32:29.

of who has been winning these races. The British team have much to be

:32:30.:32:33.

optimistic about but there is a greater strength in depth across the

:32:34.:32:40.

world in track cycling. In terms of the sport, it can only be a good

:32:41.:32:46.

thing. Certainly, in terms of women's sprinting. Becky James is

:32:47.:32:52.

the big hope to come back for Rio. Assuming that she gets selected.

:32:53.:33:01.

Both for the keirin and the sprint. Christina Vogel looking to add to

:33:02.:33:09.

her seven world titles across the seven sprint disciplines. She has

:33:10.:33:16.

been in this before. She doesn't give in or do mind games. She just

:33:17.:33:22.

doesn't with power. She won't be fazed by being one down. We are

:33:23.:33:30.

going for a standstill. The clock will have started. 30 seconds they

:33:31.:33:35.

get. The lead rider is directed to lead-off. If they don't, they are

:33:36.:33:39.

relegated. They used to go on for minutes. You could be waiting for

:33:40.:33:44.

ten minutes or so for the race to continue. Two laps to go as they

:33:45.:33:50.

come around this time. Both riders head to the top of the track. Vogel

:33:51.:34:00.

is tempting Zhong Tianshi to come on the outside. She has let her get the

:34:01.:34:09.

inside line. Zhong Tianshi on the inside now. Christina Vogel left the

:34:10.:34:15.

door open. She found herself pushed through the barriers. Vogel has to

:34:16.:34:22.

win this to get through to the final. Zhong Tianshi holds her

:34:23.:34:31.

wrath. Around comes Vogel. Vogel has been beaten. What a turn up. And all

:34:32.:34:36.

Chinese final to look forward to in the women's sprint. She was beaten

:34:37.:34:43.

with about a lap to go. She gave away the front position. Realised

:34:44.:34:49.

what she had done. Tried to accelerate but didn't have the power

:34:50.:34:54.

to get around the top. Couldn't make it. It was too far to come around.

:34:55.:35:05.

Banging elbows there. An extra ten metres way too much to ask. She

:35:06.:35:11.

could almost see in her face that she knows she's not going to make

:35:12.:35:19.

it. Their experience tells. Two tactical mistakes. Unusual for the

:35:20.:35:24.

German. It is a surprise that she has not got through. She looked in

:35:25.:35:28.

really good form here. Christina Vogel will not make it a hat-trick.

:35:29.:35:39.

The coach who broke his hand slamming it across the table in

:35:40.:35:44.

frustration at his team's disqualification will not be feeling

:35:45.:35:48.

the pain now. Both his winning through to the final. Both races won

:35:49.:35:57.

in straight rights here. That has got is underway. Confirmation that

:35:58.:36:04.

Junhong Lin and Zhong Tianshi will race for gold and silver. Christina

:36:05.:36:11.

Vogel will race against Anna Meares for the bronze and silver.

:36:12.:36:23.

I feel like I'm going back to where it all began. The crowd are lifting

:36:24.:36:43.

her. She is now in the lead. Before London 2012, I was taking it as it

:36:44.:36:47.

came and I didn't know what to expect. Great riding, Laura! Laura

:36:48.:36:59.

Trott is on fire! I love being in front of a home crowd. It is

:37:00.:37:04.

massive. It really does give you that extra edge. The concluding

:37:05.:37:12.

event in the Omnium. The gold medal is going to come to Laura Trott. The

:37:13.:37:18.

feeling you get, the buzz is incredible. It is one that I really

:37:19.:37:26.

look forward to. She just loves cycling. A huge smile and a huge

:37:27.:37:32.

talent. She really is the queen of the track. She certainly is. Her

:37:33.:37:39.

performances have been most impressive. She is so cool, calm and

:37:40.:37:47.

collected on the track. They used to be her weak part but they are her

:37:48.:37:51.

strength now. She burst to prominence in London 2012 but she

:37:52.:37:57.

still is only 23 years old. Another Olympics to come. She was a junior

:37:58.:38:05.

champion who has already been always been very talented. She came through

:38:06.:38:11.

into the senior squad with her natural speed and ability to change

:38:12.:38:15.

pace and hold the front for a long time. We have seen her do some huge

:38:16.:38:21.

turns in the team pursuit. The way she backs up from race to race is

:38:22.:38:27.

very impressive. She has had the busiest programme of anyone in the

:38:28.:38:31.

team. She already has a bronze from the team pursuit and a gold medal

:38:32.:38:36.

from the scratch race. The Omnium is a multidiscipline event. We are

:38:37.:38:46.

coming to the last of six events. In the scratch race, Laura Trott won

:38:47.:38:55.

the sprint from third. Next, the three kilometre individual pursuit.

:38:56.:39:02.

Trott's time gave her second place. Behind her great rival Sarah Hamer

:39:03.:39:09.

from the United States. The third race was her speciality. It came

:39:10.:39:20.

down to a shoot out with Hamer. A win for Hamer and the two sat level

:39:21.:39:23.

at the top of the rankings overnight. Today began the 500

:39:24.:39:30.

metres time trial and the two leaders went off together. Trott's

:39:31.:39:38.

explosive space gave her a 14 point advantage with two rights to go.

:39:39.:39:47.

Next, the flying lap. Trott kept her advantage by clocking 14.2 16. It

:39:48.:40:01.

extended her lead over Hamer. 12 points isn't very much when you have

:40:02.:40:08.

a potential to win, we saw yesterday the German rider win 55 points. Not

:40:09.:40:16.

as many sprints on offer. A shorter race. Everything is in the balance.

:40:17.:40:22.

They have waited it towards the points race to favour the endurance

:40:23.:40:27.

athletes. How was she feeling yesterday? She was a little bit down

:40:28.:40:35.

after the elimination race. She has bounced back strongly and she seems

:40:36.:40:39.

like she is focused and ready. Although Sarah Hamer beat her, she

:40:40.:40:46.

has suffered since. Laura tried to box her in and get

:40:47.:41:02.

her eliminated early. She had to go up the banking a lot and has

:41:03.:41:08.

expended a lot of energy. 100 laps ahead of them with tens sprints.

:41:09.:41:15.

Points for winning the sprints. Simon Brotherton and Chris Boardman

:41:16.:41:18.

can explain to you how bonus points can be won. COMMENTATOR: Just

:41:19.:41:25.

rolling around for the first of the 100 laps. The race will start when

:41:26.:41:32.

they cross the line next time. Sprints every ten laps four points

:41:33.:41:37.

on the line. Five points maximum, three, two, one. 50 points on the

:41:38.:41:45.

cards. All importantly, as Claire alluded to, if you gain a lap, 20

:41:46.:41:50.

points bonus and you are sprinting with everybody else for the next.

:41:51.:41:57.

The potential is to overhaul the advantages which look very big but

:41:58.:42:07.

can disappear quickly. Laura Trott overall has a 12 point lead over her

:42:08.:42:19.

next competitor. 184 points. Sarah Hammer is in the bronze medal

:42:20.:42:25.

position. Let Edmundson from Australia is fourth at the moment.

:42:26.:42:34.

The Belgian in fifth. Alison Beveridge up there on 130. It is a

:42:35.:42:39.

very strong field. Some really good riders here. The tactics are going

:42:40.:42:47.

to be very interesting. We have got some strong riders. For some of the

:42:48.:43:01.

riders, the gaps aren't very big. A couple of lap gains and suddenly

:43:02.:43:05.

they can be a real threat. While they take a lap, they can mop up

:43:06.:43:10.

points. Lots of riders are in the mix. The rider from the Netherlands

:43:11.:43:17.

in Orange. Durer of Belgian at the front. A

:43:18.:43:39.

really good road rider. The national champion of Belgium last year. One

:43:40.:43:45.

couple of races on the road. She could be a factor. Close enough on

:43:46.:43:55.

150 points to be a real threat. She can't be allowed to gain a lap. That

:43:56.:44:01.

is what Laura Trott has to look out for. You must look at a wider group

:44:02.:44:13.

as far as taking a lap is concerned. The first attack is from the

:44:14.:44:21.

Italian. We saw her riding in the road on the women's Tour. She took a

:44:22.:44:30.

couple of decent stage placings. Just get things moving more quickly.

:44:31.:44:36.

Edmundson in the white with the yellow and Queen of Australia. Good

:44:37.:44:41.

to see her performing well towards the top end after finally becoming

:44:42.:44:45.

world champion last year. She had a nasty accident. BELL

:44:46.:44:57.

Lawler trot in second place. The German is up there too but she is

:44:58.:45:06.

being left behind. -- Laura Trott. Coming back stronger. But not strong

:45:07.:45:11.

enough in that first Sprint. That's a very good positive start for Laura

:45:12.:45:16.

Trott. Very cleverly written. She had an opportunity to take on the

:45:17.:45:19.

lead with a lap to go but wisely stayed behind. Scoring the odd

:45:20.:45:25.

points and saving energy. If she hadn't gone for that, Hammer were

:45:26.:45:34.

taking the points. Laura Trott's leader goes off. 189. Hammer, USA,

:45:35.:45:44.

169. Edmondson in fourth place at the moment, 152 points, a danger

:45:45.:45:56.

rider. She's got some help this time. Alison Beveridge has won a

:45:57.:46:01.

silver medal in the team pursuit in the week. She's involved at the

:46:02.:46:06.

front. Edmondson knows she has to make this race animated. She has

:46:07.:46:12.

some catching up to do. Quite a battle at the moment between here

:46:13.:46:16.

and Hammer to get onto the podium. Sarah Hammer already collecting

:46:17.:46:20.

three points from that first Sprint. A difficult race to control, this

:46:21.:46:25.

one. As soon as someone falls, everyone will look at Laura Trott

:46:26.:46:29.

and say, it's up to you to do the chasing. The rider from the

:46:30.:46:32.

Netherlands, another really good road rider. She can power along all

:46:33.:46:37.

day given half the chance. She will have a chance here because she is in

:46:38.:46:42.

seventh place at the moment so no threat for Laura Trott, even if she

:46:43.:46:48.

gains a lap so the onus is not on the British rider to do the chasing

:46:49.:46:53.

here. She is really making some inroads here. Yes, seventh overall

:46:54.:46:59.

at the moment on 126 points. Some considerable way down. The world

:47:00.:47:05.

champion last year in the scratch race, she won the Omnium in the

:47:06.:47:13.

World Cup. She's enjoying some daylight here. She has a lead of

:47:14.:47:17.

over half a lap. The chase being led by the rider from China. But, at the

:47:18.:47:27.

front, she is leading the way as she tries to gain a lap early. I think

:47:28.:47:32.

she's going to do it. They have not been hanging around, either. I don't

:47:33.:47:37.

know if she has been pushing into the rest and is about to pay the

:47:38.:47:42.

price. Buy ahead of this next Sprint, she will take four points.

:47:43.:47:46.

That will be 25 in total which will push her Apple board. Looking for

:47:47.:47:52.

the points on offer and looking to keep going. Hopefully she can latch

:47:53.:47:57.

onto the back of that pack and gain the extra points available should

:47:58.:48:07.

she managed to do so. The China rider, Ling, looks like she will

:48:08.:48:10.

claim three points. The rider with her was Gonzales of Venezuela.

:48:11.:48:15.

Venezuela is getting a couple of points there. Laura Trott tucked

:48:16.:48:19.

into the main field along with the other medal contenders at the

:48:20.:48:26.

moment. This plays into the hands of Laura Trott. She's mopping up the

:48:27.:48:31.

points, taking it away from the real threat. It's absolutely perfect for

:48:32.:48:37.

her. Just 40 minutes of the back of that group. She'll certainly make

:48:38.:48:42.

the junction which will put her into having a good chance of a podium.

:48:43.:48:46.

Just one point behind a net Edmondson who was fourth at the

:48:47.:48:52.

moment, should she gain a lap. She still working hard, WILD. Sarah

:48:53.:49:02.

Hammer have been looking at opportunities to move up the table.

:49:03.:49:06.

Now she would have to move backwards as well because Edmondson is bearing

:49:07.:49:11.

down on her. Wild is about to be in a similar position. It's going to be

:49:12.:49:16.

a tactically different position for the American very soon. The Belgian

:49:17.:49:25.

at the other end of the pack at the front end, the pointy end, makes a

:49:26.:49:38.

move, D'Hoore. She had help from the Italian Frapporti. She's really into

:49:39.:49:43.

the red now. Looking to bridge onto that last meal. We've seen riders

:49:44.:49:48.

get this close. And disappear backwards again. Never making

:49:49.:49:51.

contact. I can't believe that will happen to ride of her quality. Up to

:49:52.:49:58.

the junction now. Great writing the from Kirsten D'Hoore but she had to

:49:59.:50:05.

dig deep the way things were in front of her. Going off the front

:50:06.:50:14.

from Berthon. She won't have long to do that. This is relentless. She

:50:15.:50:20.

only got a few moments to take a breath before she needs to work her

:50:21.:50:27.

way towards the front. The advantage nullified by another attack. She is

:50:28.:50:34.

now into fifth position. 151. Just one point behind Edmondson in

:50:35.:50:38.

fourth, but she still has some work to do. They are on the Sprint lap

:50:39.:50:42.

now and it looks as if it is the rider from Belarus at the front.

:50:43.:50:47.

Coming from behind is Laura Trott trying to get into the points where

:50:48.:50:53.

the Sarah Hammer. Five points for Belarus, three for Cuba and another

:50:54.:51:01.

two for Laura. A psychological blow because she came over the top of

:51:02.:51:08.

Sarah Hammer. A real psychological blow the four Hammer, I think. A

:51:09.:51:21.

good race so far so Sarah Hammer moves up the track. There is the

:51:22.:51:26.

situation in the overall standings. Laura Trott leading the way. Wild

:51:27.:51:30.

gaming but still in fifth place having gained a lap on everybody

:51:31.:51:35.

else. -- gaming for the LS from New Zealand attacks. Jason Kenny in

:51:36.:51:40.

conversation with Mark Cavendish. We can look forward to those raising

:51:41.:51:46.

this afternoon. Jason Kenny in the men's Hammer racing for a second

:51:47.:51:49.

gold medal of the games and Mark Cavendish will line up alongside

:51:50.:51:53.

Sarah Bradley Wiggins in the Madison. They won together in 2008.

:51:54.:51:59.

This'll the first World Championship they written in the Madison since

:52:00.:52:03.

then and what a finale to the championships it is. That is later

:52:04.:52:08.

on this afternoon. This final day of the Track Cycling World

:52:09.:52:11.

Championships. At the moment, we're watching Lauren Ellis, the

:52:12.:52:14.

Commonwealth silver medallist, trying to gain a lap in which I

:52:15.:52:18.

think she will gain because, as you can see, everybody else is taking a

:52:19.:52:25.

breather. Absolutely. Great attack. Everybody riding hard, took a

:52:26.:52:29.

breather. She made short work of that. 20 points, moved right up the

:52:30.:52:37.

board. Perfect for Laura Trott. The riders, another threat for the other

:52:38.:52:42.

contenders, forcing them to ride defensively rather than offensively.

:52:43.:52:46.

She's not a factor at the moment, the from New Zealand. That bonus of

:52:47.:52:54.

20 points has taken her on 298. She is still 11, a long way behind the

:52:55.:52:58.

podium, but at least she is showing her pace at the front. Perfect

:52:59.:53:11.

timing. Certainly was. Lap 61. And D'Hoore from Belgium have a go at

:53:12.:53:17.

the front as well. The Belgian is behind her as well. Gonzales from

:53:18.:53:22.

Venezuelan, in her mid-30s now, the Pan American games, Gold medallist a

:53:23.:53:27.

few years ago, trying to hang on and collect more points. And the

:53:28.:53:30.

teenager from Denmark is going to take three points here, going over

:53:31.:53:37.

the top of the Belgian. She's collecting the five points. Denmark,

:53:38.:53:42.

three, Belarus, two, Gonzales, Venezuela, one. She happened to be

:53:43.:53:48.

coming over on the Sprint lap. Pushed on but didn't have any

:53:49.:53:52.

company here so she's thinking twice about it. A long way to go on her

:53:53.:53:56.

own when they are motoring behind so I think she will call it a day

:53:57.:54:01.

shortly. She has real star quality at the age of 19. A two-time road

:54:02.:54:07.

race champion is I think we'll hear her name a lot in years to come.

:54:08.:54:11.

She's having a little look over her shoulder, Dideriksen. Laura Trott in

:54:12.:54:21.

the gold medal position. The final race of the women's Omnium. Laura

:54:22.:54:26.

has finished second in each of the last three years of the World

:54:27.:54:29.

Championships in this championship. She was last world champion in

:54:30.:54:34.

Melbourne, 2012, head of the London Olympic Games and became the London

:54:35.:54:38.

Olympic champion as well. An offensive approach to defending

:54:39.:54:41.

their position in this race so far. Sprinting very successfully.

:54:42.:54:45.

Expanded her lead. In a good position here now. At various grant

:54:46.:54:52.

position. She's marking every move the Belgian and Hammer have made and

:54:53.:54:58.

she won't let them escape so only a surprise move from Edmondson, in

:54:59.:55:06.

touch, could start to become something of a threat but come at

:55:07.:55:09.

the moment, it's playing into her hands. The pace has forced them to

:55:10.:55:12.

slow down as they approach half distance. That will have helped

:55:13.:55:24.

Wild, On The Last Portion Of The Lap. Leading At The Moment, Ellis.

:55:25.:55:32.

Edmondson, the defending world champion right behind her. There is

:55:33.:55:39.

a real lull here. Wild is perfect for her because she is 20 points,

:55:40.:55:44.

more than 20 points off the podium but if a rider of her calibre, I

:55:45.:55:50.

don't believe she will settle for anything but a medal here. She can't

:55:51.:55:55.

do it on points, highly unlikely, so I think we'll see her in the next 50

:55:56.:56:00.

laps going for another attack. No surprise to see the Belarus rider at

:56:01.:56:05.

the front again, keeping her eye on everything. A former world champion

:56:06.:56:14.

in the points race back in 2011. Ling from China, momentarily comes

:56:15.:56:19.

to the front. Gonzales of Venezuela in third. Hama behind her. The

:56:20.:56:28.

Canadian behind her. -- Hammer. She came up the inside but Laura Trott

:56:29.:56:35.

got blocked. Not quite there. Finding their way through now. Here

:56:36.:56:42.

we are on the Sprint lap. Laura Trott goes around the outside. That

:56:43.:56:47.

will get the crowd going. Laura Trott, she shows it clean pair of

:56:48.:56:54.

heels to everyone. Laura Trott grabs five more points, just when the

:56:55.:56:57.

others thought they were about to begin to eat into her lead a little.

:56:58.:57:03.

She had the pace over hairline strategically kept her foot on the

:57:04.:57:11.

pedal. Sarah Hammer frustrated at not being able to make any inroads

:57:12.:57:16.

towards that gold medal. That title looks to be slipping away here. The

:57:17.:57:24.

three podium placed riders at the moment. Those three riders are

:57:25.:57:27.

together on the track at the moment with Hammer at the front. Laura

:57:28.:57:34.

Trott following her. About halfway back in the field. Edmondson on the

:57:35.:57:38.

front. D'Hoore up there as well behind the Russian. The Canadian

:57:39.:57:49.

with, once again, Sharapova going off the front. Looks like she's

:57:50.:57:57.

trying to spring them out of it now. The only top six can contest the

:57:58.:58:05.

medals and do outrageous things like take it. Edmondson and D'Hoore, they

:58:06.:58:13.

could threaten the podium places. The Canadian on 130, I think that is

:58:14.:58:22.

the barrier. Edmondson the defending world champion goes off the front.

:58:23.:58:27.

The German closes the gap. They gain some ground now. Dideriksen on her

:58:28.:58:34.

wheel. Towards the back of the main field of the moment. A real danger

:58:35.:58:41.

to Sarah Hammer of the United States, an attack like that

:58:42.:58:45.

succeeding. Edmondson close enough that she could score en route and

:58:46.:58:49.

overtake them, so they are the ones who have to do the chasing.

:58:50.:58:56.

Beveridge attacks now and is closed down straightaway by the rider from

:58:57.:59:06.

Cuba. The laps are ticking away now. 43 laps remaining as they come

:59:07.:59:11.

around this time. Over half distance, Laura Trott closing on

:59:12.:59:21.

that world title. Acceleration from the three-time European under 23

:59:22.:59:24.

champion who has not been able to feature towards the top end of the

:59:25.:59:28.

leaderboard, but she is looking to finish strongly and on the attack

:59:29.:59:36.

now, being followed by D'Hoore. And the rider from Japan, in fifth place

:59:37.:59:43.

at the moment in the line-out. As we go into this Sprint lap, Laura Trott

:59:44.:59:50.

is following the wheel of the French rider. It's going to be a struggle

:59:51.:59:56.

between the pair of them. Look at them go around the outside.

:59:57.:59:59.

Travelling at a different speed to the other riders on the track. Sarah

:00:00.:00:06.

Hammer lead from over the line. Laura Trott, third. All importantly,

:00:07.:00:09.

Laura Trott adds another couple of points. At this moment in time, it's

:00:10.:00:13.

looking very good for her with 40 laps to go. She is on to 198 points.

:00:14.:00:21.

Hammer, 178, in second. What a battle for the silver medal at the

:00:22.:00:22.

moment. world champion last year. She had a

:00:23.:00:51.

nasty accident. BELL 37 laps to go as they cross the

:00:52.:01:16.

finish line. Only 20 points remaining. Laura Trott doesn't have

:01:17.:01:24.

too beat anybody. She just has to stop people from taking the lap.

:01:25.:01:38.

D'Hoore digging in hard. Making it a trio of riders at the front. Angie

:01:39.:01:46.

Gonzales of Venezuelan at the front of the group behind the main field.

:01:47.:01:56.

Laura Trott making steps towards a world title. Her first of this

:01:57.:02:07.

Olympic cycle. Ellis attacking on the inside. From New Zealand. She

:02:08.:02:14.

gained a lap early in the race. She will have to gain a few if she wants

:02:15.:02:23.

to get on terms. If she were to gain another lap it would only take her

:02:24.:02:27.

up to eight. She is still fighting hard. The Cuban has decided to go

:02:28.:02:40.

after her. Beveridge has gone after her as well. Hamer decides to let

:02:41.:02:46.

her go. The Canadian will put herself on

:02:47.:03:06.

terms if she can gain a lap. That will put her in the third to fifth

:03:07.:03:17.

looping. In with a shot of a medal. Lauren Ellis against the second lap

:03:18.:03:25.

of the race. Beveridge of Canada trying to do the same thing.

:03:26.:03:40.

This is ideal for Laura Trott. All of the points being soaked up by the

:03:41.:03:50.

riders fighting for minor places. Lauren Ellis has done really well to

:03:51.:03:59.

drag herself up into eight. Dideriksen is ninth. The Cuban ten.

:04:00.:04:07.

They are marking each other. It is ridiculous. Berthon taking out

:04:08.:04:20.

Hammer in an attempt to get her out at the front. Berthon has written a

:04:21.:04:28.

very negative race. They are both on the same points. It would all be on

:04:29.:04:34.

position in the last dash for the line. 25 laps remaining. Laura Trott

:04:35.:04:43.

has got a stranglehold on it. She is leaving them to squabble at the

:04:44.:04:48.

back. They appear to have stopped watching her. What a force this is

:04:49.:05:03.

if they get really going. Hammer and Berthon are just dawdling along

:05:04.:05:12.

watching each other. Laura Trott won a scratch race earlier this season

:05:13.:05:19.

socially already -- so she already has a gold medal. The Russian rider

:05:20.:05:30.

has started to join in. This is a gift for Laura Trott. Happy to help

:05:31.:05:36.

out in this breakaway of five. Not putting too much in. The two that

:05:37.:05:45.

are riding very curiously are Hammer and Berthon who are only now

:05:46.:05:48.

thinking about getting into the race. They could see themselves in

:05:49.:05:55.

trouble. Laura Trott wants to do this in style. She is on the wheel

:05:56.:06:01.

of the Australian and benevolence. She is going to collect three more

:06:02.:06:05.

points here. Five to Australia and three to Great Britain. Laura

:06:06.:06:12.

Trott's stranglehold is basically comp leet on this women's omnium. As

:06:13.:06:17.

long as she stays upright, she is going to win. Sarah Hammer and

:06:18.:06:26.

Berthon are still locked in behind. Edmundson would need to gain a lap

:06:27.:06:35.

to get into contention. I think that Hammer and Berthon are going to see

:06:36.:06:40.

they are neutral and it will be all on the final dash. If they are level

:06:41.:06:46.

on points, it is who finished first on the final dash for the line. They

:06:47.:06:51.

have given up on attacking Laura Trott. She was so strong in the

:06:52.:06:56.

first half of this race that they have realised they can't beat her in

:06:57.:07:01.

a sprint. They have to concentrate on second and third position. Laura

:07:02.:07:06.

Trott is not obliged to score a single point. She will take the

:07:07.:07:11.

world title. Riding on the inside at the front. 17 laps to go.

:07:12.:07:29.

Edmundson is going to have a go. It has been a dangerous game played by

:07:30.:08:01.

Berthon at the back. Their podium place is not in the bag,

:08:02.:08:15.

necessarily. Beveridge and Wild. The Italian leads the chase. That is the

:08:16.:08:21.

front of the race. Berthon refusing to even go through. She's stuck to

:08:22.:08:26.

the wheel of Hammer. Banking everything on the final sprint.

:08:27.:08:30.

Everybody else is getting on with it. I don't think Wild after that

:08:31.:08:41.

huge effort has fully recovered. She is in this breakaway. It is easing

:08:42.:08:47.

in behind and she has got herself into a group of three. Not a lot she

:08:48.:08:53.

can do to contribute. They are all really tired. They are all looking

:08:54.:09:00.

at Sarah Hammer who is having to do it all alone. Berthon on her wheel

:09:01.:09:07.

and Laura Trott as well. Laura Trott in that group of three chasing. Only

:09:08.:09:13.

one point on the line at the moment. Hammer leads that sprint with

:09:14.:09:20.

Berthon. Meanwhile, Beveridge going for it at the front of the race.

:09:21.:09:27.

Waiting for confirmation of who got the points for that race to the

:09:28.:09:35.

line. It may have been the Chinese rider. Sarah Hammer took a very

:09:36.:09:44.

valuable point. She has a 1-point lead over Berthon. It is almost

:09:45.:09:52.

neutral. With a single point, it is still down to the final sprint.

:09:53.:10:02.

Berthon has two score. Hammer is not obliged to score now she has her

:10:03.:10:08.

nose in front. Laura Trott is on the verge of becoming world champion. It

:10:09.:10:11.

would be a fourth gold medal for Great Britain. And the second in an

:10:12.:10:20.

Olympic discipline. Laura Trott can afford to sit on the front and tell

:10:21.:10:24.

them to the line. Keeping everybody in check. Lauren Ellis has yet

:10:25.:10:31.

another go at trying to gain a lap. She has gained a couple in this race

:10:32.:10:37.

so fair play to her. A superb race but not a factor on the podium. Half

:10:38.:10:44.

a dozen laps to go. Dideriksen chasing after the rider from New

:10:45.:10:47.

Zealand. The Cuban is getting involved. Meanwhile, Berthon and

:10:48.:10:57.

Hammer are watching each other at the back. Berthon is the loser here.

:10:58.:11:07.

Hammer can afford to hang back. She will keep the silver medal. Berthon

:11:08.:11:14.

should have monitored the race. Points have disappeared. I think she

:11:15.:11:19.

has raced very negatively and she has paid the price. In a way, she

:11:20.:11:24.

gets what she deserves for not trying to make things happen. She

:11:25.:11:30.

hasn't animated the race at all. She is going to come unstuck if she is

:11:31.:11:38.

not careful. We go into the final three laps. Lauren Ellis is still

:11:39.:11:45.

accelerating of the banking. The first rider on the track. Berthon on

:11:46.:11:54.

the inside of the track trying to shake off Hammer. She is going for

:11:55.:11:59.

the final sprint. It is a grand finale. Berthon is going for the

:12:00.:12:05.

final sprint. Hammer is on her wheel. Head to head towards the

:12:06.:12:14.

line. Berthon has conserved enough energy to take the sprint against

:12:15.:12:19.

the American. Berthon takes the sprint to the line. Laura Trott now

:12:20.:12:25.

crosses the line as the world champion for the second time in her

:12:26.:12:33.

career. Second gold of the week. Olympic year and it is all going

:12:34.:12:41.

swimmingly for Laura Trott. Berthon France does get the silver medal.

:12:42.:12:46.

The crowd Rice to salute Laura Trott. Gold for Great Britain and

:12:47.:12:52.

gold for Laura Trott for the second time this week she will be on the

:12:53.:12:59.

top step of the podium. Crushed the opposition's morale and made them

:13:00.:13:03.

focus for a place. Beautifully consistent all the way through. A

:13:04.:13:10.

fascinating final between Berthon and Hammer. I thought Berthon had

:13:11.:13:19.

blown it. It kept the competition interesting. Laura Trott was so

:13:20.:13:28.

dominant that the gold medal was not in question for the last 30 or 40

:13:29.:13:33.

laps. The Olympic champion here four years ago. The world champion four

:13:34.:13:40.

years ago. She has settled for silver in each of the World

:13:41.:13:43.

Championships since and now she is on top of the world. Great ride by

:13:44.:13:53.

her. A little bit shaken by being bested by Sarah Hammer in the

:13:54.:13:58.

elimination race which is her forte. Came back and battered this final

:13:59.:14:08.

event. Jason Kenny, meanwhile, tries to focus on what is to come for him.

:14:09.:14:13.

No doubt, thoroughly delighted with what has happened. It is one

:14:14.:14:27.

upmanship for them in that household. How many medals have you

:14:28.:14:35.

got? A very dominant performance in the women's omnium. Berthon staked

:14:36.:14:44.

it all on the last sprint and she was proved right but I thought she

:14:45.:14:45.

was playing a very dangerous game. Laura Trott, with three medals from

:14:46.:14:54.

these championships, she's had a very busy schedule. On top of the

:14:55.:15:08.

world. Going into Rio with the best possible preparation. Certainly

:15:09.:15:11.

giving the other is plenty to think about, they knew that she was going

:15:12.:15:17.

to be strong. Thoroughly dominant, and the points race at the end of

:15:18.:15:20.

the competition, it certainly does not do her any harm either. So, a

:15:21.:15:32.

gold medal for Great Britain, on the final afternoon of these

:15:33.:15:36.

championships, and who knows? Potentially more medals still to

:15:37.:15:43.

come. Go, Trotty, go. That's what it says

:15:44.:15:46.

on her flag. She galloped through that, leaving

:15:47.:15:49.

everyone else in her wake. She's out in front with 201 points, coming

:15:50.:15:56.

into the final race. She picked up 17 points to extend

:15:57.:16:02.

her lead. That was a real battle with Hammer, I'm surprised she could

:16:03.:16:05.

do anything at all after yesterday, but we will hope to have a word with

:16:06.:16:09.

her almost immediately, how she can even have the energy to celebrate.

:16:10.:16:14.

The Trott and Kenny household have three gold medals between them.

:16:15.:16:19.

Here is the double world champion. Huge congratulations, once again

:16:20.:16:22.

you've had the velodrome on their feet, you were able to enjoy the

:16:23.:16:26.

last 40 laps of that? Definitely, they said to me before the start

:16:27.:16:30.

that if I get 20 laps to go with a big enough gap, I can ride around

:16:31.:16:33.

and follow, that is what I tried to do. I tried to get enough points

:16:34.:16:36.

early, I'm so happy. It's only taken four years! It sends out a strong

:16:37.:16:48.

message as far as you are concerned, five months out from Rio? I did this

:16:49.:16:52.

before London, when it was Melbourne, I never expected to win

:16:53.:16:55.

but this time I read it wanted to win. I wanted to pull it off. A

:16:56.:17:00.

wonderful Mother's Day gift, it was lovely to see you with your mum then

:17:01.:17:04.

at the end, what did she say? She's so happy, I said last night, I was

:17:05.:17:09.

gutted about the elimination race. I rode stupidly, I should have taken

:17:10.:17:13.

Sarah to the black line, we saw the time difference in the 500 meter. I

:17:14.:17:20.

text of them last night to say I was gutted, and I could not do it. To

:17:21.:17:26.

poll it off, that is so special. It is your second world title, adding

:17:27.:17:30.

to the bronze in the team pursuit committee could not ask for more, it

:17:31.:17:34.

is a heavy schedule you've set yourself? I added the scratch race

:17:35.:17:39.

in as a bonus, I like to do a bunch race before the Omni in itself, it

:17:40.:17:42.

was a hard-fought race, it was harder than I imagined. But to pull

:17:43.:17:47.

back the bonds for the girls, I was so happy about that. -- the bonds

:17:48.:17:54.

medal. To come back from fifth and pull off that right, it was great

:17:55.:18:03.

for the team, I guess -- to pull that last one off, I'm so happy

:18:04.:18:09.

Jason gave you a wink before the track, he was a little bit unwell,

:18:10.:18:13.

but a brilliant performance from him, your households are doing well

:18:14.:18:17.

at these World Championships? I was so happy for him, you is not won a

:18:18.:18:22.

world title in so long. I could see he was emotional on the podium, it

:18:23.:18:25.

is not like him. He could see how much it meant to him. We could not

:18:26.:18:30.

get lovey-dovey before an elimination race! But you will be

:18:31.:18:33.

cheering him on in the Keirin race? Yes, he can do the double now as

:18:34.:18:40.

well! Thank you. That is the joy of a sporting couple, they can go one

:18:41.:18:47.

challenging each other? Yes, she was in control the whole way through,

:18:48.:18:50.

she admitted she was questioning whether she made the right move in

:18:51.:18:53.

the elimination last night, potentially her confidence was down

:18:54.:18:57.

but she has bounced back. The last 30 or 40 laps she was in control, it

:18:58.:19:02.

was brilliant. A third gold medal for them in their house, the fourth

:19:03.:19:06.

for Great Britain. It would put them above Germany in the medals charts,

:19:07.:19:12.

just those two? We used to get that all the time as well. It is superb,

:19:13.:19:17.

when you are both on form like that, you know what each other are going

:19:18.:19:21.

through. As she said earlier in the week, her and Jason work well

:19:22.:19:24.

together because they understand what is happening and when they're

:19:25.:19:27.

bad day is bad, and when a good day is good. Sarah, let's look at this

:19:28.:19:34.

race, she covered the other two so well, her competitors and

:19:35.:19:37.

challengers. She won a couple of sprints? She was following the right

:19:38.:19:44.

wheels, using other competitors who were desperate for points. This is

:19:45.:19:49.

the first sprint, she took it relatively comfortably. Looking a

:19:50.:19:54.

little frustrated and desperate, but she was coming across the line... I

:19:55.:19:59.

think Sarah Hammer wrote a desperate race, as did Laurie Berthon, towards

:20:00.:20:03.

the end. But Laura Trott had the speed to spare. That 500 metres gave

:20:04.:20:08.

her confidence that she needed, she is so much better than Sarah Hammer.

:20:09.:20:12.

It is lovely to see that she came across the line with daylight. In

:20:13.:20:16.

the final stages of the rays, Laura Trott does not have to get involved,

:20:17.:20:21.

she has the gold medal in the back. -- race. It is a silver medal battle

:20:22.:20:29.

between Laurie Berthon and Sarah Hammer, I feel sorry for Hammer, not

:20:30.:20:33.

doing so well yesterday. She tried her best, it became a game of cat

:20:34.:20:41.

and mouse, there are all these different subplots, Laurie Berthon

:20:42.:20:45.

said great, new go, I will get the gold medal. Is there anyone else who

:20:46.:20:49.

was not in the race who could be a contender in Rio? Or is that the

:20:50.:20:53.

field likely to be in the Olympics? I would say that is the field, but

:20:54.:20:57.

Australian Edmondson, she had a recent accident, on the road she was

:20:58.:21:02.

knocked over by a car, she could potentially be a challenger to

:21:03.:21:05.

Laura. She was a challenger last year. I would say Hammer and the

:21:06.:21:10.

Australian the biggest threats in Rio for Mora. What will Laura do now

:21:11.:21:15.

for the next five months? She will go away -- Laura. She used to have

:21:16.:21:22.

incredibly good time trials, she was not scoring so highly in those bunch

:21:23.:21:27.

races. She's done a lot of video analysis and looked at the other

:21:28.:21:30.

competitors and how she can capitalise on their mistakes will

:21:31.:21:33.

stop she can consolidate and see she has the right approach, the others

:21:34.:21:38.

seem to focus on having one strong event, like Sarah Hammer in the

:21:39.:21:41.

individual pursuit. It is lock on the others. She can take confidence

:21:42.:21:47.

that she is covering six of these omnium events well. Let's reflect on

:21:48.:21:52.

the men's omnium. Mark Cavendish came in in fifth place, he has to

:21:53.:21:57.

get a lot of points to make it onto the podium. He gave it his best shot

:21:58.:22:01.

and wanted to keep the home crowd happy, he won the final sprint. By

:22:02.:22:07.

this time the race was effectively over? Yes, I think it was a good

:22:08.:22:11.

performance from him, but he needed to be on the podium to give the

:22:12.:22:15.

selectors more of a headache. It is going to be a tough choice when it

:22:16.:22:18.

comes to the limbic selection, do they put him in the omnium with 14

:22:19.:22:27.

riders? -- Olympic selection. Cavendish, congratulating the

:22:28.:22:30.

Colombian who won the gold, three of them finished on double points, it

:22:31.:22:34.

came down to their positions in the final sprint, gold went to Colombia.

:22:35.:22:39.

Cavendish is in sixth overall. Jill spoke to him and the technical

:22:40.:22:44.

director Shane Sutton. I wanted to feel that sensation,

:22:45.:22:50.

that will be the same as the Olympic games, it was a 50, to power points

:22:51.:22:57.

race. -- 50 kilometres per hour points race. It will be the same

:22:58.:23:03.

level at the Olympic Games come I wanted to test it. I don't know if I

:23:04.:23:08.

am going. But, I wanted to see where I go along with the best riders.

:23:09.:23:14.

Actually, they've all come off a road programme. My theory was to do

:23:15.:23:20.

that, I had to qualify. I had to go to Hong Kong, Columbia... But

:23:21.:23:25.

actually... It was good to come off of the road, you have that insurance

:23:26.:23:32.

there in the final points. Hopefully, I did enough for

:23:33.:23:35.

selection. I don't know. There was a feeling that perhaps, if you got a

:23:36.:23:39.

medal, it would help his chances of being in the team to go to Rio. The

:23:40.:23:45.

team pursuit has to be the focus as well? Yes, that fifth ride will be

:23:46.:23:50.

part of that ATP, it is a big medal opportunity. Like I said, at the

:23:51.:23:57.

moment emotions are high -- TP. He wrote great sprints out there, but

:23:58.:24:01.

at the end of the day, he did not get the result you wanted. But we

:24:02.:24:04.

aren't discounting him at the moment. The decision is between him,

:24:05.:24:10.

asked, the coaching team. We will sit down and see where we go.

:24:11.:24:14.

Mark Cavendish has a final chance to make it up, not in an Olympic event,

:24:15.:24:19.

he will write later today in the Madison with Sir Bradley Wiggins.

:24:20.:24:25.

Now, we come to the gold medal ceremony for Laura Trott in the

:24:26.:24:28.

omnium. Here it is Simon. She's barely had

:24:29.:24:32.

time to catch her breath before the medals are to be presented here.

:24:33.:24:39.

Sarah Hammer, an eight time world champion. Finishing with the once

:24:40.:24:43.

medal. Edged out by a single point, by the

:24:44.:24:54.

French man Laurie Berthon. -- bronze medal. She was third in Hong Kong

:24:55.:24:59.

this year in the Omni. Sarah Hammer, when she won the elimination race,

:25:00.:25:03.

she was in high spirits, and felt she could really challenge, but it

:25:04.:25:07.

did not happen for her on the second day. Not enough to challenge for the

:25:08.:25:12.

gold medal, but you can be sure that she will be in Rio, not far away.

:25:13.:25:17.

Like Laura Trott, she is very consistent. A silver in 2011, a

:25:18.:25:25.

bronze medal in 2012, gold in 13 and 14, now she has a bronze medal

:25:26.:25:28.

again. Laurie Berthon has previously won

:25:29.:25:33.

several national titles in the omnium and the scratch race, this is

:25:34.:25:39.

her first appearance on the podium in this kind of race.

:25:40.:25:43.

She banked everything on the final sprint, we thought she was waiting

:25:44.:25:49.

to far back, she waited for the race to ease, and she got the opportunity

:25:50.:25:56.

to turn it into a sprint with Sarah Hammer, and she came out on top. She

:25:57.:26:02.

should be used to it by now. So many gold medals, at an Olympic and world

:26:03.:26:13.

level. The roar is for Laura Trott. Champion again, her second rainbow

:26:14.:26:18.

jersey of the week. Seven world title in all. The scratch race gold

:26:19.:26:26.

medal has been added as well, just a few days later, with this gold in

:26:27.:26:33.

the omnium. Her fiance, Jason, trying to keep his composure and

:26:34.:26:37.

concentrate on the Keirin final still to come. Laura Trott is centre

:26:38.:26:42.

stage at the moment. And in fine foetal ahead

:26:43.:26:47.

-- and she is in fine form ahead of Rio.

:26:48.:26:56.

Still the flowers to come, it is the 11th World Championship medal of

:26:57.:27:02.

Laura's career. And she is only 23. It is extraordinary. She is on her

:27:03.:27:09.

way to being, dare I say, certainly challenging for our most successful

:27:10.:27:13.

Olympian ever. She keeps the motivation and the level of

:27:14.:27:18.

performance going. A very special talent indeed. Now, the national

:27:19.:27:20.

anthem. GREAT BRITAIN'S

:27:21.:27:51.

NATIONAL ANTHEM PLAYS. Laura Trott, really setting the tone

:27:52.:28:13.

for the rest of the British team this week, and the success has

:28:14.:28:17.

continued, there could be more to come.

:28:18.:28:22.

I'm trying to think of the double acts without referring to musicians.

:28:23.:28:32.

And an deck? Nobody can do an impression because they are

:28:33.:28:44.

different. -- Ant and Dec. He is more of a dancer. You can be the fat

:28:45.:28:50.

one? The double act that is Sir Bradley

:28:51.:28:54.

Wiggins and Mark Cavendish. In one hour's time in the Madison.

:28:55.:28:58.

Is that potentially... Am I getting too excited if that is a medal

:28:59.:29:03.

chance? It could be, that it's been a year since they braced together in

:29:04.:29:07.

that way. Potential is there, Bradley is flying, Mark Cavendish

:29:08.:29:11.

has a point to prove. It could happen. Coming up, the final of the

:29:12.:29:23.

gold-medal race, and the bronze. These team-mates are not even

:29:24.:29:27.

looking at each other. Absolutely, it is still a rivalry, it is still a

:29:28.:29:32.

gold medal. You come up against your competitors in national

:29:33.:29:35.

championships. It is a shame to travel across the world and get a

:29:36.:29:40.

national final, for all intents and purposes, but these girls want the

:29:41.:29:43.

gold medal as much as the other. It will be a great battle.

:29:44.:29:47.

We will have a look at the semifinals, they are both very

:29:48.:29:51.

tactical affairs. The Austrian Anna Meares was the

:29:52.:29:55.

sufferer at the hands of Junhong Lane.

:29:56.:30:01.

I don't think Anna rode tactically well. She is normally a master

:30:02.:30:06.

tactician. It reflects her lack of confidence herself, she does not

:30:07.:30:09.

have the power she normally has. I don't decrease in her best, I think

:30:10.:30:14.

she will be back to her best at Rio. -- do not think we have seen. The

:30:15.:30:17.

Chinese athlete had it In the early stages, they were going

:30:18.:30:36.

very close to the inside of the track. Once you get up to speed, you

:30:37.:30:44.

don't want to be touching the flat part of the track because you could

:30:45.:30:52.

crash. Is it slippery? It is just the angle, it is so flat, if you're

:30:53.:31:00.

coming in at 75 K pH, it is just the angle. And you can't come inside?

:31:01.:31:11.

Once the bell has gone, if you enter the sprinter's line, you can't come

:31:12.:31:16.

out. And the person who is not in it, can't come in. We saw a couple

:31:17.:31:25.

of heavy crashes last night. I'll ask you about damage to the track.

:31:26.:31:33.

How about Caroline Ryan? She suffered a broken collarbone. A

:31:34.:31:38.

classic cycling injury. She is in pretty good spirits. She will want

:31:39.:31:45.

to be racing before the Olympic games in five months. The track is

:31:46.:31:52.

smooth but I can see marks on it. If a bike hits it hard it is going to

:31:53.:32:00.

make ends and rip up the wood? We have seen a couple of horrific

:32:01.:32:07.

accidents. Yes, you showed me some that we are not going to see here.

:32:08.:32:13.

We don't want to put people off. If a paddle lifts a board, something

:32:14.:32:22.

soft and fleshy can slide across it and pick it up. It happened to Jason

:32:23.:32:30.

qui lead my team-mate. It can go straight through your muscle. Some

:32:31.:32:42.

of the damage took place. Will they be repairing it overnight and

:32:43.:32:47.

between races? Yes, it will just need a little bit of filler. I have

:32:48.:32:55.

never seen a bike flip like I did yesterday. There are no breaks so if

:32:56.:33:02.

you stop suddenly, you literally somersault over the handlebars. The

:33:03.:33:06.

idea is to relax and four floppy but that is easier said than done. If

:33:07.:33:11.

the track splinters, we saw the Dutch rider crash twice. If you are

:33:12.:33:19.

crashing on top of injuries that you already have, it is just so painful.

:33:20.:33:25.

Jason Kenny was waiting for his final race and you could see the

:33:26.:33:29.

scars all over him from old injuries. I have got a few. It is

:33:30.:33:36.

part of the job. When you are racing day after day and you crash on the

:33:37.:33:38.

first day the worst-case scenario is falling twice

:33:39.:33:54.

on the same spot. All your nerve endings are exposed. It is not

:33:55.:33:59.

pleasant. Apart from that, I don't want to put people off. This track

:34:00.:34:09.

has a good reputation. There must be some that are notorious for being

:34:10.:34:21.

horrid to 41. If you fall on and -- and outdoor track, there is no give

:34:22.:34:29.

and it can be horrible. Wooden tracks might have splinters. There

:34:30.:34:34.

is an element of danger. It is all part of the game. We have a big name

:34:35.:34:42.

bronze medal contest here. Anna Meares against Christina Vogel. Over

:34:43.:34:46.

to the commentators to describe it for you. COMMENTATOR: Varies Anna

:34:47.:34:57.

Meares who was well beaten in her semifinal in the end. Both of the

:34:58.:35:04.

semifinals going to the riders from China in the straight rides. It was

:35:05.:35:17.

a bit of a turnip. -- turn-up. Personally, I would give the nod to

:35:18.:35:24.

Vogel. I have got so many predictions wrong. So many

:35:25.:35:30.

surprises, it is hard to tell. 18 world titles between this pair. Anna

:35:31.:35:37.

Meares hoping for one last hurrah in Rio this summer. She was the great

:35:38.:35:44.

rival of Britain's Victoria Pendleton. Particularly when they

:35:45.:35:49.

raced against each other in the London Olympics four years ago.

:35:50.:35:54.

Victoria Pendleton winning the keirin final. Anna Meares victorious

:35:55.:36:01.

in the sprint final. A two-time Olympic champion Anna Meares. She

:36:02.:36:08.

took gold in Athens in 2004. Vogel from Germany on the front. Starting

:36:09.:36:16.

to pick up the pace with a lap and a half remaining. Anna Meares keeping

:36:17.:36:22.

the height there which gives her some distance. Mears is going

:36:23.:36:29.

further so she is going faster. When she swings down onto the line, it

:36:30.:36:35.

becomes apparent. The door was left open by Vogel and Anna Meares rode

:36:36.:36:42.

straight through. Vogel will have to go on the outside. She has shown

:36:43.:36:46.

great speed here and that was more like it from her. I think Anna

:36:47.:36:53.

Meares was courageous to take the inside line. She got control of the

:36:54.:37:00.

race. She got Vogel close in with three quarters of a lap to go. The

:37:01.:37:05.

German just had far superior acceleration. She had the height as

:37:06.:37:15.

well. Didn't panic. Did most of the overtaking in the back straight. It

:37:16.:37:19.

was already one as they hit the final bend. Anna Meares will be

:37:20.:37:25.

looking for more top end speed over the months as we get towards the

:37:26.:37:30.

Olympic Games in August. She believes there is more to come. She

:37:31.:37:36.

was set back after that training injury. A good win therefore Vogel.

:37:37.:37:46.

She is one race away from claiming the bronze medal. Having won the

:37:47.:37:50.

sprint title over the last couple of years. We are heading for the first

:37:51.:37:57.

gold medal match up. Whatever happens, we will have our first ever

:37:58.:38:02.

women's world sprint champion from China. We see them getting ready in

:38:03.:38:08.

the centre now as we watch these pictures of Anna Meares. Luckily for

:38:09.:38:16.

us, wearing different helmets. Often they were the same skin suits,

:38:17.:38:19.

coloured shoes and gloves as well. Zhong has the white helmet on.

:38:20.:38:45.

Junhong Lin has got the black. We said it was a bit of a surprise that

:38:46.:38:51.

it was an all Chinese final. But it is not as though they are known as

:38:52.:38:59.

track sprinters. Junhong Lin won the bronze medal two years ago. They

:39:00.:39:03.

have been there or thereabouts and on the podium but just not winning

:39:04.:39:09.

the world title itself. One of them will become the world champion.

:39:10.:39:13.

Three laps and it is the best of three final. The sprint is very much

:39:14.:39:25.

where they have shone. Specifically, the women's competitions. It was

:39:26.:39:31.

only a matter of time before they both make the final. After

:39:32.:39:36.

disappointment in the team sprint where they were relegated, what a

:39:37.:39:40.

fantastic way to come back, guaranteeing yourself gold and

:39:41.:39:47.

silver. The nation is going to get gold and silver but for them it is

:39:48.:39:52.

all about individuals. The rider at the front is Zhong. Junhong Lin

:39:53.:40:00.

right behind her. They will know each other so well from constantly

:40:01.:40:05.

training together. It is one of the things that brings on a squad. When

:40:06.:40:10.

training partners are gold medal standard every day. Now very slowly

:40:11.:40:21.

increased pace. It will begin to unfurl shortly as they go into the

:40:22.:40:33.

last lap. Junhong Lin is gaining a little but there is daylight between

:40:34.:40:38.

them. Zhong holds an as they go to the line by half a wheel. The first

:40:39.:40:45.

win goes to Zhong who led from the front. Zhong Tianshi potentially one

:40:46.:40:59.

ride away from being world champion. Even waited down the back straight

:41:00.:41:09.

to try and accelerate but it is a short straight and there is not a

:41:10.:41:13.

lot of room to do anything. She gave herself room. Still not flat stick.

:41:14.:41:27.

Timing it to arrive a little early. Already needed to be at a higher

:41:28.:41:34.

speed. I don't think it is going to be an easy ride. Far from home and

:41:35.:41:41.

hosed. Not much in it between the pair of them. It is Zhong Tianshi

:41:42.:41:54.

who leads in the race for gold. How much is sprinting about the

:41:55.:41:57.

individual and how much about the kit? There is no doubt that the kit

:41:58.:42:03.

makes a difference. Compared that to a steel bike with normal clothing.

:42:04.:42:08.

There would be a huge difference. But at the top level, thousands of a

:42:09.:42:14.

second can make a difference. All we are trying to do is optimise

:42:15.:42:18.

everything. The bikes and Beckett are part of that. If you want to use

:42:19.:42:25.

the hashtag, you can get in touch with us. The Italian women pulled

:42:26.:42:33.

out of 18 pursued due to a puncture. Punches can happen at any time. You

:42:34.:42:41.

cannot change your bike in the back straight. It is a mishap. Sometimes

:42:42.:42:46.

you get a restart if it happens in the first 500 metres. If you are a

:42:47.:42:55.

team of three of the four riders have to finish. It is just one of

:42:56.:43:01.

those things. In the points race, we saw a chap pointing. Pointing

:43:02.:43:12.

because... The umpire is pointing at the head of the race. You get riders

:43:13.:43:17.

lapping the field and it can be difficult to point out the head of

:43:18.:43:23.

the race. It is important because points are available at every

:43:24.:43:28.

sprint. Lots of people said that they saw Laura Trott cycling back to

:43:29.:43:34.

her hotel. They'll do come in on bikes, don't they? We like to cycle

:43:35.:43:45.

back, it is a way to clear your head. A bit of fresh air. Why walk

:43:46.:43:57.

when you can cycle? Why sit when you can lie down? That the cycling

:43:58.:44:02.

mantra. Jason Kenny is coming into the big final. The maxi final as

:44:03.:44:09.

opposed to the mini final. Places one to six. In the line-up, Ed

:44:10.:44:16.

Dawkins from New Zealand has a W by his name. He received a warning in

:44:17.:44:23.

the semifinal for a minor infringement. Not enough to be

:44:24.:44:29.

disqualified but enough if he does it again he will be disqualified. It

:44:30.:44:38.

is a yellow card. If you make a small mistake and get relegated, he

:44:39.:44:43.

will kick himself. He has to be 100% clean. It is an event where there is

:44:44.:44:49.

a lot of barging and bumping. It will be in his mind that he has to

:44:50.:44:54.

be squeaky clean. You have been incredibly strong in your

:44:55.:44:57.

predictions. Jason Kenny's chances in the keirin?

:44:58.:45:03.

My heart says he will win it, my head says leg, he has a history of

:45:04.:45:16.

losing when it counts. In the Keirin, I beat Levy in 2012 and at

:45:17.:45:24.

the Olympics. He is so fast and so capable, but I think that Jason has

:45:25.:45:28.

the magic touch at the moment. If he can have one last big effort, Key

:45:29.:45:32.

knows this is it, no matter what happens. It is not like the Sprint

:45:33.:45:36.

where it is best of three, if he gets it right he is a double world

:45:37.:45:39.

champion and he will be up to this. It has less when you have a gold

:45:40.:45:41.

medal in the bag and you know it is the last event and a home

:45:42.:45:58.

crowd? Without a doubt, Matty Glazer tried to come back in the caring,

:45:59.:46:01.

but he was out in the first round. He has done an incredible job to

:46:02.:46:03.

keep everything crossed, and brought it home. In the final of the men's

:46:04.:46:06.

keirin, a they go. That was a short of Kellermann of

:46:07.:46:09.

the Czech Republic, Sam Webster, 18 sprint gold medallist. -- 18 sprint.

:46:10.:46:19.

We have Francois Pervis in this race, he won the World Championship

:46:20.:46:22.

last year and the year before, he has not made it into the final this

:46:23.:46:24.

time. Here comes the Denny Mike -- the derny bike. Then it is a

:46:25.:46:38.

free for all. This is a gutsy thing to do for a

:46:39.:46:53.

World Championship, wearing that jacket. We will keep an eye as they

:46:54.:46:57.

get underway, Webster leads them. Sam Webster is at the front, the

:46:58.:47:01.

Commonwealth sprint champion, winning the title in Glasgow a

:47:02.:47:06.

couple of years ago, 24 years old. Part of a strong New Zealand track

:47:07.:47:11.

squad. One of the better nations in world track cycling. Across the

:47:12.:47:15.

board in the men's and women's teams. The men's team sprint squad

:47:16.:47:19.

are very impressive, second in the line at the moment is the Russian

:47:20.:47:30.

Shurshin. Francois Pervis has had a disappointing championship so far. A

:47:31.:47:34.

former world champion, it is hard to know how he can become motivated for

:47:35.:47:38.

a minor final when he should be fighting it out for gold medals. He

:47:39.:47:41.

was so dominant the last couple of years, when we went to Cali a couple

:47:42.:47:46.

of years ago, he wonder Keirin, the sprint and the kilo, and last year

:47:47.:47:52.

he won the kilo again and the Keirin, he is a six time world

:47:53.:47:55.

champion but he has not been a factor this time. He has a lot to do

:47:56.:48:03.

before we get to Rio. Speed is higher than earlier. Max is out, as

:48:04.:48:07.

you mentioned in this competition, they have four laps to go. Webster

:48:08.:48:18.

is at the front, Shurshin in second. The man from Azerbaijan in third.

:48:19.:48:30.

Francois Pervis is at the back in the Navy. He is thinking about

:48:31.:48:37.

coming around the outside, everyone is spreading out, there is room to

:48:38.:48:44.

raise, France what purposes at the back, Webster will try to take it

:48:45.:48:48.

all the way, they have two laps to go. -- France while Purvis. Shurshin

:48:49.:48:57.

in second, as Kellermann tries to go around the outside and play himself

:48:58.:49:02.

in the frame. Webster is in the box seat, as Shurshin of Russia tries to

:49:03.:49:07.

take him on, we'll to wheel, elbow to elbow. Shurshin tries to go the

:49:08.:49:11.

long way around against the kiwi, he manages but in the last moment he

:49:12.:49:17.

was put to the line by the rider of Azerbaijan. Perfect timing from him.

:49:18.:49:24.

He takes it on the line, as you can see, by less than half a wheel.

:49:25.:49:38.

Webster did as a substitute derny. France while Purvis never got on in

:49:39.:49:45.

those terms, he did not participate. -- Pervis. As early as the first

:49:46.:49:49.

round, in his initial right committee sat on the back straight

:49:50.:49:56.

and did not contest. -- on the initial straight, he sat at the

:49:57.:50:01.

back. Webster, you could not hold first place, it seemed that Shurshin

:50:02.:50:04.

would get it, but what a burst of pace and a launch from the rider of

:50:05.:50:10.

Azerbaijan, he made an impact at the start of the race on and off the

:50:11.:50:18.

track. Making an impression in the final. That is the man of the match

:50:19.:50:23.

in the sequin jacket. I gather that is not exactly team issue. It is the

:50:24.:50:28.

first track centre, it could catch on! I will ask him where he bought

:50:29.:50:41.

it from. Omelchenko takes it. The first two over the line.

:50:42.:50:50.

Onto the final, Jason Kenny, can he make it two gold medals in these

:50:51.:50:56.

championships? Can he back up that incredible sprint final win against

:50:57.:51:00.

Matty Glazer, does he have one big race left on his legs today, it is a

:51:01.:51:08.

tough one. Eilers is the world kilometre champion. Maximillian

:51:09.:51:18.

Levy, and Wakimoto of Japan. Eddie Dawkins of New Zealand. What a

:51:19.:51:24.

field, and eight laps lay in store here. Awang and Dawkins are good at

:51:25.:51:35.

ducking and diving in this fast paced event, ducking and diving.

:51:36.:51:41.

Levy is the one with power, can he deliver for the first time when it

:51:42.:51:45.

really matters? Kenny has looked fantastic to me throughout the

:51:46.:51:49.

competition. He has ridden strategically, we have not seen him

:51:50.:51:53.

go full tilt, but now is the time to do it. He has two crossed the line

:51:54.:52:11.

first, that is for sure. Here comes the derny, and the World

:52:12.:52:14.

Championship final for 2016 is underway, six riders going for gold.

:52:15.:52:24.

Jason Kenny is in the middle of the field at the moment. Levy is in

:52:25.:52:26.

fourth place for Germany. Wakimoto of Japan is there.

:52:27.:52:45.

Six kilometres before we know who is the world Keirin champion.

:52:46.:52:52.

Dawkins, Jason Kenny, that is levy in the Black socks. Eilers, the

:52:53.:52:59.

world kilometre champion has green socks. They are different physical

:53:00.:53:06.

shapes, Levy on the wheel of Jason Kenny, in the middle of the group.

:53:07.:53:12.

As the laps takeaway and the speed rises, just waiting for a flurry of

:53:13.:53:21.

activity with half a lap to go before the derny pulls away as they

:53:22.:53:27.

josh for a position. Jason Kenny was the world champion in 2013. A silver

:53:28.:53:33.

medallist, Awang, in 2010, the bronze medal last year. Can the

:53:34.:53:38.

rider from Malaysia do better this time around? He is on the wheel of

:53:39.:53:43.

the derny bike, four laps to go halfway. One more lap before the

:53:44.:53:51.

derny pulls off, and already Dawkins is leaving space. Looking through

:53:52.:53:55.

his legs, looking behind at Kenny, Kenny is looking back to see what

:53:56.:54:03.

Levy is doing, Levy is glued to his wheel.

:54:04.:54:06.

They could try to box Kenny. Kenny does not have much room, 2.5 laps to

:54:07.:54:13.

go, Awang in front, Dawkins in black in second.

:54:14.:54:18.

Eilers and Kenny tries to force what motor out of the way. Going around

:54:19.:54:23.

the outside, Jason Kenny is in second place...

:54:24.:54:28.

Can he go round the outside of Dawkins?

:54:29.:54:31.

Up towards the line... One lap left, Jason Kenny, forced out of it.

:54:32.:54:38.

Eilers staying at the front, Dawkins in second place, Awang tries to come

:54:39.:54:42.

through on the inside, so close on the line.

:54:43.:54:46.

I think Eilers is a double world champion. Eilers just on the line.

:54:47.:54:51.

What a close finish. Jason Kenny involved and told one lap left, but

:54:52.:54:56.

look as Eilers crosses the line, Dawkins almost takes him but not

:54:57.:55:01.

quite. Awang, just as one year ago, ends with the bronze medal. What a

:55:02.:55:06.

fantastic race, unfortunately for Jason Kenny, he was boxed right at

:55:07.:55:10.

the start of the sprint, you could not find his way out. It was too far

:55:11.:55:16.

to come around the outside and he knew it. That strength and staying

:55:17.:55:24.

power of Eilers was key. He was able to start sprinting really quickly,

:55:25.:55:30.

he is able to stay with it. Bert Eilers for the second time of the

:55:31.:55:38.

week is a world champion. -- but Eilers.

:55:39.:55:41.

Congratulations to Germany, a race too far for Jason Kenny? Yes, he did

:55:42.:55:46.

not quite have the gas. To be fair to Eilers, it was a controlled ride

:55:47.:55:50.

from the front. It takes a lot to have the strength to keep going for

:55:51.:55:55.

2.5 laps, he strung them out. There was an opportunity. Jason was going

:55:56.:56:00.

backwards, Awang was on the inside, Jason had given up, you knew that

:56:01.:56:03.

nothing was going to go in his favour. But I think he ran out of

:56:04.:56:11.

gas. Awang on the inside, it is a big day for Malaysia. For Awang to

:56:12.:56:15.

win a medal, it is his bird. It is exceptional. It was tight on the

:56:16.:56:21.

line, Dawkins came back strongly. It was a classic final. Given what you

:56:22.:56:25.

were saying about how steep it is on the inside on the light blue, it was

:56:26.:56:29.

incredible control from Eilers? You had to have extreme bike handling

:56:30.:56:35.

skills to win, it is not just strength and power. But he showed he

:56:36.:56:39.

had it in the kilo. This is a big moment for him, he's coming through

:56:40.:56:43.

the ranks, the German squad is very strong, Leavy has been the daddy of

:56:44.:56:54.

the Keirin. Dawkins is flinging his bike at the line, 2000 's of a

:56:55.:57:02.

second. -- Levy. I thought there would be a crash. There was an

:57:03.:57:06.

argy-bargy between him and Dawkins. It is a shame for Jason, the toll it

:57:07.:57:11.

takes on your body, it is not just about being fit, recovery is not a

:57:12.:57:17.

problem, it is the damaged done, repeated sprint efforts, emotionally

:57:18.:57:20.

he would have been drained last night. Trying to sleep after a major

:57:21.:57:25.

championship win is not easy. I think he will look back on this

:57:26.:57:29.

week, he has to be happy. There has to come a point when the body just

:57:30.:57:34.

says, no. Why cannot do it any more. Exactly. -- I cannot do it. There

:57:35.:57:39.

comes to a point, I would do three events and it would be the last day,

:57:40.:57:45.

you can barely get out of bed, your legs are that stuff. It is the home

:57:46.:57:49.

crowd, and the occasion, it can drag you through it. But it was one race

:57:50.:57:54.

too far for Jason. He went for it, one lap out, had he been able to

:57:55.:57:57.

keep it up, you would have been in the shake-out -- he would have been

:57:58.:58:05.

in the shake-up. Eilers was driving, if he was in front fractionally,

:58:06.:58:08.

Jason could have been on the black line in control. Dawkins, Awang on

:58:09.:58:14.

the inside, then Jason had waved a white flag. It was so strong. It is

:58:15.:58:19.

hard to explain how tough it is to hold out for 2.5 laps like Eilers

:58:20.:58:24.

did, that was a cracking time. You had to stay in your shape so much,

:58:25.:58:28.

Sarah, as you get tired it is going to go a bit as well? You can see the

:58:29.:58:32.

form of the riders, everyone has their own style. The form of the

:58:33.:58:37.

German rider, it reminds me of how you used to ride, it had very strong

:58:38.:58:42.

kilo rider, he holds everyone. Absolutely superb performance from

:58:43.:58:46.

him. We are getting a lot of questions from people watching

:58:47.:58:49.

cycling, some for the first time. Tim Norris wants to know, even

:58:50.:58:53.

though Chris was a sprinter, did he or does he still go for long

:58:54.:58:58.

leisurely bike rides, or was it all short burst work? When I was

:58:59.:59:03.

training as an athlete, we would have won- two hours of flat rides,

:59:04.:59:09.

easy gears, spilling the legs, and active recovery. But three or four

:59:10.:59:13.

blocks of the year, we do a week of aerobic conditioning, in Majorca, in

:59:14.:59:20.

the hills. For the big guys, the sprinters, they can do well in the

:59:21.:59:24.

hills, bearing in mind we are not designed for endurance. But now, I

:59:25.:59:29.

love it. The riders love these bikes. On the

:59:30.:59:37.

track, Kristina Vogel 's on the second leg at Hasbro.

:59:38.:59:41.

Taking it convincingly? Yes, we felt coming into the

:59:42.:59:44.

championship that Vogel was the rider to beat, she was the

:59:45.:59:48.

favourite, and probably, the likely winner. It has not proven to be so,

:59:49.:59:57.

we certainly saw her coming back to the kind of form that we were

:59:58.:00:00.

expecting to see in the first ride against Anna Meares. She has her

:00:01.:00:04.

hands for here in trying to stay alive in this bronze medal match. It

:00:05.:00:09.

would have hit her morale hard. She was a convincing winner. Even

:00:10.:00:22.

She made her way around to bankings but it wasn't enough. Kristina

:00:23.:00:44.

Vogel, the world sprint champion for the past two years. Part of a

:00:45.:00:57.

fantastic team sprint duo. We are watching with half a night on the

:00:58.:01:02.

future. Right now it is the World Championships. Kristina Vogel is

:01:03.:01:09.

going to ride from the front. She has decided that she wants to be

:01:10.:01:14.

quite assertive. Anna Meares buzzing around. Kristina Vogel looking to

:01:15.:01:21.

make sure that the bronze medal as hers. Fighting all the way. In the

:01:22.:01:28.

end, well beaten. Kristina Vogel didn't get the colour she was

:01:29.:01:33.

looking for. She will be on the podium. A very worthy winner of the

:01:34.:01:38.

Bronze medal match. It will be interesting to see. We know that

:01:39.:01:42.

Fogel will be up there when the Olympics come around. It will be

:01:43.:01:48.

interesting to see whether Anna Meares can continue to improve and

:01:49.:01:51.

step up after the problems that she has had with injury. She has come

:01:52.:01:58.

back here and acquitted herself well. Not on the podium, her normal

:01:59.:02:06.

position but coming fast. A few months from now she will be on

:02:07.:02:09.

another level again. Now, a real threat. She will head back to

:02:10.:02:17.

Australia with a silver medal from the women's keirin final. It is the

:02:18.:02:23.

sprint crown that has gone for the German. Now we wait for what could

:02:24.:02:30.

be the decisive match up in the all Chinese final. Kristina Vogel enjoys

:02:31.:02:37.

her lap of honour. Victory in straight rides for her. The two

:02:38.:02:48.

riders from China just about to come up onto the track. Vogel could

:02:49.:02:55.

disappear back into the track centre shortly. Junhong Lin has it all to

:02:56.:03:02.

do. In the back home it at the bottom of the track. Zhong Tianshi

:03:03.:03:12.

led all the way in that first heat. It was still close. Not anywhere

:03:13.:03:17.

near as clear-cut as the previous match where there was a big physical

:03:18.:03:22.

difference between the two. We are, a lot more finesse involved. Last

:03:23.:03:28.

chance for the rider with the Black album it. Junhong Lin. Zhong Tianshi

:03:29.:03:35.

already has a silver and bronze in the sprint in last couple of years.

:03:36.:03:39.

Can she come on the set in the next few minutes? Or will it go to a

:03:40.:03:48.

decider as the men's final did. Standard steady start. It is filmed

:03:49.:03:56.

by our cameraman on a Segway, steering with his knees while he

:03:57.:04:01.

carries the camera. Worthy of mention for the level of skill. How

:04:02.:04:06.

grateful he will be that they are going particularly slowly on this

:04:07.:04:12.

lap. Sometimes, they are racing to keep up, even on the opening lap. It

:04:13.:04:18.

helps to keep alongside the athletes. In the white helmet is

:04:19.:04:27.

Zhong Tianshi. She is leading 1-0. If she wins this race, the title is

:04:28.:04:33.

hers. They are obliged for the first half lap to proceed at walking pace.

:04:34.:04:40.

I have never seen written down who's walking pace it is. Certainly going

:04:41.:04:48.

at comfortable Segway pace. They slowly head towards the finishing

:04:49.:04:52.

straight. Three quarters of the way through the first lap of three.

:04:53.:05:01.

These two riders know each other strengths and weaknesses so well.

:05:02.:05:06.

They must ride together all the time. It is the fraction of a second

:05:07.:05:14.

reaction time. It is who deploys them quickly enough that makes all

:05:15.:05:19.

the difference here. There is an element of luck. It is going to be a

:05:20.:05:28.

steady one. Only a lap and a half remaining. The speed at last starts

:05:29.:05:35.

to pick up. They really were creeping around the track. Zhong

:05:36.:05:42.

Tianshi gained the height and forced the speed to increase. Junhong Lin

:05:43.:05:51.

takes it from the front. She has to win this race. Already, she has lost

:05:52.:05:58.

ground to Zhong Tianshi who is going to win the world title here. China's

:05:59.:06:04.

first-ever women's sprint world champion. What a decisive, clear-cut

:06:05.:06:11.

victory it was. In straight rides, in style, gold to Zhong Tianshi. A

:06:12.:06:18.

muted celebration in the centre. They will be deeply pleased. Junhong

:06:19.:06:28.

Lin made a mistake with a lap to go. She got into the right position but

:06:29.:06:32.

can it early enough and allowed herself to be swamped on the back

:06:33.:06:39.

straight. It was all over. That acceleration inside the last three

:06:40.:06:45.

quarters of a lap. Zhong Tianshi totally committed. That is the

:06:46.:06:49.

advantage of being at the back. You get to choose when you accelerate

:06:50.:06:54.

and your competitor might not see it coming. As decisive a victory as you

:06:55.:07:02.

will ever see in a World Championship match. Another rider to

:07:03.:07:08.

keep an eye on in the summer. It is not all about Anna Meares and

:07:09.:07:12.

Kristina Vogel. The world champion going into the Olympics is Zhong

:07:13.:07:18.

Tianshi from China. They will take confidence from that. At last, they

:07:19.:07:24.

have got the reward year and it will give them confidence running into

:07:25.:07:28.

the Olympics. She will be happier than she was the other day when she

:07:29.:07:33.

ended up with a silver medal in the team sprint. Disqualified and ended

:07:34.:07:39.

up losing to Russia. At the end of the championship, the sprint squad

:07:40.:07:44.

are all smiles. Gold and silver in the bag in the women's sprint.

:07:45.:07:50.

Everybody has a flag this year. Have you noticed? Apart from the

:07:51.:07:57.

organisers who have put the flags on the scoreboards rather than have

:07:58.:08:02.

actual flags. Maybe they have stolen the flags. A good reception from the

:08:03.:08:13.

London crowd. In the end, no strong British interest in the women's

:08:14.:08:18.

sprint. We were spoiled for so many years with Victoria Pendleton. And

:08:19.:08:25.

Becky James who followed in her tracks winning the title in Minsk

:08:26.:08:29.

but she has had a couple of years out with injury and is only just

:08:30.:08:34.

beginning to come back now. We will see Becky James competing in this

:08:35.:08:38.

event in the summer. I have every confidence that she will continue to

:08:39.:08:46.

progress in leaps and bounds. You see the coach giving them a hug

:08:47.:08:54.

there. Well done to them. His hand is in plaster after he smashed it on

:08:55.:08:59.

his table after being disqualified. He broke bones in his hand. A former

:09:00.:09:07.

French sprinter who is now coaching the Chinese. The frustration when

:09:08.:09:11.

the athletes don't do what they are supposed to. At least, he is smiling

:09:12.:09:19.

now. Is the Chinese team stronger in the women than the men? Yes. They

:09:20.:09:25.

made a big push for Beijing in the team sprint for the men but they

:09:26.:09:29.

have never really hit the heights. They have one or two guys in the top

:09:30.:09:36.

15 or 20. Let's have another look at that final. It seemed as if what

:09:37.:09:44.

ever Junhong Lin did, Zhong Tianshi had her covered. She knew she had

:09:45.:09:51.

the legs on her. She came passed quite easily in the back straight

:09:52.:09:56.

and had nothing to respond with. There was daylight between them at

:09:57.:10:00.

the finish. Their kit would be identical. There is not much

:10:01.:10:07.

difference between the teams in the kit. And it can work differently

:10:08.:10:10.

with different riders and their shapes. It is not like Formula 1.

:10:11.:10:17.

The equipment is important and it is not the be all and end all. There

:10:18.:10:24.

are 200 checks going on with the bikes. There was a junior riders

:10:25.:10:32.

Mike found at the junior world cyclo-cross riders which had an

:10:33.:10:37.

electric motor hidden inside it. They still haven't got to the bottom

:10:38.:10:42.

of who did it. You can't do it by yourself. The extent to which Linux

:10:43.:10:52.

is involved. I spoke to Chris Boardman about it. He doesn't think

:10:53.:10:58.

it is widespread. If it wasn't serious, it would be hilarious. It

:10:59.:11:04.

seems crazy. What satisfaction would you get from winning a race with an

:11:05.:11:10.

engine? It is referred to as mechanical doping. It could carry a

:11:11.:11:18.

lifetime ban. It is very calculator. It is using something that you know

:11:19.:11:22.

that your comp editors don't have. It will give you more wattage. There

:11:23.:11:33.

is a famous clip of a female cyclist who had this. A Belgian rider

:11:34.:11:39.

through past of one of the best riders in the world on a climb. Then

:11:40.:11:45.

people started to ask questions. It was found that the World

:11:46.:11:49.

Championships a few weeks ago. It is really sad because it is not

:11:50.:11:52.

something you want to have to think about. Simon Brotherton has been

:11:53.:12:00.

really careful not to say, " switches on the turbo" or" using

:12:01.:12:14.

their engine". It is the athletes and not the bikes that win most of

:12:15.:12:25.

the time. Here is Simon to take us through the medals. COMMENTATOR: It

:12:26.:12:34.

was a little bit like watching Chris in the keirin final. Just powering

:12:35.:12:41.

to the front. Saying, if you are going to win this race, you have to

:12:42.:12:48.

get past me. Nine times out of ten they didn't when Chris was riding.

:12:49.:12:56.

Same here. Really fast and with the stamina that comes from a kilo

:12:57.:13:03.

background. The advantage of being at the front, you are expending more

:13:04.:13:07.

power but you get to do it at your own pace. If you can do it, that's

:13:08.:13:16.

why you can perform consistently. The second time Ed Dawkins has got

:13:17.:13:19.

really close in the men's keirin final. Stuck with silver again. Two

:13:20.:13:27.

thousandths of a second. This appears to be the standard gap at

:13:28.:13:35.

this World Championships. The same gap as in the first ride in the

:13:36.:13:39.

final of the men's sprint. For the second time this week the German

:13:40.:13:45.

here is his name called out as world champion. He has backed up his win

:13:46.:13:52.

in the kilometre time trial with a win in the keirin as well. The

:13:53.:14:03.

jersey presented by Brian Cookson. Just about managing to do the zip

:14:04.:14:10.

up, despite the neck muscles. It was a classic keirin final. The rider

:14:11.:14:19.

from Malaysia on the podium for the second time. Awang has a silver and

:14:20.:14:33.

two bronze medals. He brings flamboyance to the event. Leave the

:14:34.:14:40.

slightest gap and he is in it. As Chris said, you expect something to

:14:41.:14:46.

explode when he is around. He is just constantly even that their

:14:47.:14:52.

speed looking for opportunities. If he can't find one, he makes one. And

:14:53.:14:56.

the national anthem of Germany. His second gold of the week, Germany

:14:57.:15:59.

now have three, but they have the same number of medals as Great

:16:00.:16:03.

Britain, a total of eight, Britain tops the medal table by one having

:16:04.:16:10.

got four golds to Germany's three. Eilers, Dawkins and Awang are your

:16:11.:16:15.

podium. STUDIO: Can I ask about the rainbow

:16:16.:16:19.

jersey? How come it is a thing in cycling, what is its background? It

:16:20.:16:25.

is as iconic as the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, you are a world

:16:26.:16:30.

champion, once you've done that, you have the bands, you can put them on

:16:31.:16:34.

the arms of your race kit. Is that only in the races that you have one?

:16:35.:16:39.

Yes, in the events that you are the world champion in. They have

:16:40.:16:42.

regulations and subsequently, in recent years, it is recognised that

:16:43.:16:48.

when you have the pride and honour of wearing the rainbow jersey for

:16:49.:16:51.

the next 12 months and to defend that, hopefully in one year's time,

:16:52.:16:55.

I could be wrong but if you imagine those bands as five individual

:16:56.:17:01.

rings, it is supposed to reflect the five continents, like Olympic rings,

:17:02.:17:05.

but made into bands around your chest and arms. What have you done

:17:06.:17:08.

with your jerseys? The last one I gave to my mum and dad with the

:17:09.:17:13.

medal, it's framed in their home, the rest are in my drawers, it

:17:14.:17:20.

sounds a bit rubbish! You wear them. When? When you are training. Some

:17:21.:17:26.

riders don't like to wear those jerseys when they are the world

:17:27.:17:30.

champion because they feel like there is the pressure of being world

:17:31.:17:35.

champion with the jersey on, and but I love that feeling. It is your

:17:36.:17:40.

chance to wear the jersey through history, look at the fees before you

:17:41.:17:44.

who have won it, it is the same as what I wore all those years ago. It

:17:45.:17:47.

is part of your history, you've made your mark on the sport. It is the

:17:48.:17:51.

five colours of the continents, black is not in the rainbow!

:17:52.:17:57.

Absolutely. It is amazing to have the jersey, I've worn mine every

:17:58.:18:03.

single day for training. Do you? Absolutely, I wore mine this

:18:04.:18:07.

morning, my rainbow shorts. You get the shorts as well? Depending on the

:18:08.:18:11.

team, my team, and part owner in it, we made shorts for me having a

:18:12.:18:17.

rainbow jersey for the time trials on the road. When I am on the road,

:18:18.:18:22.

I wear the rainbow bounds. -- rainbow bands. Do you have rainbow

:18:23.:18:26.

pyjamas crushed and Mark I will get a one C. Jason Kenny is going home

:18:27.:18:37.

with a jersey -- onesie. He spoke to Jill Douglas. You could not make it

:18:38.:18:44.

a two, what happened? You know, I did not have the legs to take it on

:18:45.:18:50.

against all of those fresh guys. I was gambling and trying to get a

:18:51.:18:55.

wheel. I thought I had the winning one, in Eilers, but then I could not

:18:56.:19:01.

get down to the bottom line. I was hung out to dry. You were on the hip

:19:02.:19:05.

of Dawkins at one point, you did not have that firepower. You had a long

:19:06.:19:09.

day yesterday, I know how broken you were after taking that gold medal.

:19:10.:19:14.

It is a big hip to be on, Dawkins. I ran out of legs quick. I expected

:19:15.:19:19.

that, that is why I was trying to get through the race as efficiently

:19:20.:19:22.

as possible. I was pleased when I got to the final. I got there quite

:19:23.:19:28.

efficiently. I tried to write the final as efficiently as possible

:19:29.:19:32.

while still trying to win. -- ride the final. I could not get down to

:19:33.:19:36.

the Black line. I was hung out to dry. Looking at your World

:19:37.:19:43.

Championships, to win the sprint, and getting into the Keirin final,

:19:44.:19:47.

it is a positive way? Getting those results before the weekend, I would

:19:48.:19:51.

have taken them, without question. But for me, and for the whole of the

:19:52.:19:58.

sprinter lads, we are fast enough to be competitive, we can take it to

:19:59.:20:02.

these guys and win titles. It is a positive with five months to go

:20:03.:20:06.

until the one we really want to win. So positive. Looking at the rest of

:20:07.:20:10.

the world, the New Zealanders are always strong. The Germans look

:20:11.:20:13.

strong, the French haven't been at the races this week, have they?

:20:14.:20:18.

There have been a few signs, they have not, the thing is, you can

:20:19.:20:22.

never write them off. They have a lot of depth and strength in

:20:23.:20:26.

numbers. By the Olympics, I'm sure they will be back on top form. Thank

:20:27.:20:30.

you for everything this week, well done.

:20:31.:20:33.

Thank you. Jason Kenny will go home satisfied with his work this week?

:20:34.:20:37.

More than satisfied, he will be delighted. Not only does he have a

:20:38.:20:41.

rainbow jersey but he has the confidence of knowing he has the

:20:42.:20:44.

pace to mix with the top guys in the world. There's more to come. The

:20:45.:20:49.

team sprint, I think that was seen as a failure but in many ways, I

:20:50.:20:53.

think it was a success. They have the fastest man in the world in the

:20:54.:20:56.

first lap, Jason is the fastest man in the world in the second lap when

:20:57.:21:02.

he is right. Callum skimmer Michael Cole Skinner or Lewis Oliver, he

:21:03.:21:06.

will be the next two finish it off. -- Karen Skinner or

. The tennis is over running on BBC

:21:11.:21:15.

One, eight crucial point in the Davis Cup match between Great

:21:16.:21:19.

Britain and Japan. At 4:30pm, we will hand over to Sue Barker here on

:21:20.:21:24.

the tennis, the cycling will switch to the red button. We are already

:21:25.:21:28.

there, if you want to carry on with the cycling, you won't miss anything

:21:29.:21:31.

at all. There is a delay.

:21:32.:21:35.

You can go now. It gives us the chance to answer your questions,

:21:36.:21:40.

this is about the derny bike, you can see in the Keirin, the driver is

:21:41.:21:45.

on the bike, he has a black helmet, it looks like, call work, how do you

:21:46.:21:49.

get that job and why does he never smile?

:21:50.:21:57.

It is a very serious job. You have to take it incrementally and make

:21:58.:22:03.

sure you deliver the riders take regulations beat. It's an important

:22:04.:22:08.

job but I have no idea how he gets that job. I've no idea, I think

:22:09.:22:15.

historically, each velodrome has a group of Denny riders who are

:22:16.:22:22.

experienced. I think it comes -- derny.

:22:23.:22:30.

It is down to who get the job -- who gets the job and sticks with it. A

:22:31.:22:35.

lot of cheering for this iconic pairing of Bradley Wiggins and Mark

:22:36.:22:40.

Cavendish, teaming up together in the Madison. 200 laps in this, 16

:22:41.:22:46.

pairs, in an ideal world, do you power and endurance rider with one

:22:47.:22:54.

that can sprint? -- pair. You dear, Bradley Wiggins traditionally can

:22:55.:22:59.

sprint but Mark Cavendish is the one that you would throw in.

:23:00.:23:03.

This is the finale event, it will take about one hour, you can see all

:23:04.:23:08.

of that on the red button. They are very different in

:23:09.:23:13.

character. The rest of the team refers to Bradley Wiggins as the

:23:14.:23:17.

boss, he has become a leader, do you think he always has been the leader?

:23:18.:23:21.

I think he's an individual who leads from the front. I think he has

:23:22.:23:26.

become a leader because of his actions and performances, and his

:23:27.:23:29.

results. It is not only personality but how you lead from the front.

:23:30.:23:33.

That is what good team leaders do. Looking at the line-up for the

:23:34.:23:38.

Madison, who are the teams to beat? It is very hard to call. It could be

:23:39.:23:43.

a copout but there are seven or eight who could win. So much can go

:23:44.:23:48.

right or wrong in the race, crashes happen. You put your money on at

:23:49.:23:53.

least one crash in this. It is chaos, amazing to watch. As an

:23:54.:23:57.

athlete or a rider, it is not bad to win the race but from the outside

:23:58.:24:01.

looking in, bodies are everywhere. One rider in the team is racing at

:24:02.:24:05.

all times, the other recovers, they change over with a hand sling, you

:24:06.:24:10.

can transfer energy so they don't slow down on the change. It is

:24:11.:24:14.

essentially a points race for teams of two. We were talking to Victoria

:24:15.:24:18.

Pendleton earlier, she said how exciting it feels, the hand sling.

:24:19.:24:22.

You get powered forward. People use it in training at the end of

:24:23.:24:26.

sessions, doing practice. Some of my team-mates use it on the road. I'm

:24:27.:24:38.

yet to be slung in, I can't hold onto the bars on the other side, I

:24:39.:24:41.

would fall off. When it is done properly and welcome it is poetry in

:24:42.:24:44.

motion. This race will start slowly. The tennis is coming over onto BBC

:24:45.:24:49.

Two, if you want to watch it in its completion, you can on the red

:24:50.:24:51.

button. You can do that now. Emily, aged

:24:52.:24:56.

nine, she wants to know what it is like standing on the gold medal

:24:57.:25:00.

podium? Do you know what? It is pretty good. There is nothing like

:25:01.:25:07.

it. I miss it. When you see with the home riders stepping on the podium,

:25:08.:25:14.

receiving the gold medal, it is all worthwhile. You remember all of the

:25:15.:25:17.

tough times, all of those ups and downs, when you are up against the

:25:18.:25:21.

best in the world, nothing like it. That is the feeling that Mark

:25:22.:25:24.

Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins are heading forth. Here comes the

:25:25.:25:30.

Madison. -- heading for. COMMENTATOR: A final swig of drink

:25:31.:25:34.

for Mark Cavendish, reunited on track with Bradley Wiggins. World

:25:35.:25:40.

champions in 2008, they did not have their way in Beijing in the Olympic

:25:41.:25:44.

Games. So Bradley Wiggins is there ready to go. They have the pedigree

:25:45.:25:49.

and we all know they have the ability. They have an incredibly

:25:50.:25:54.

tough opposition to overcome, they are marked men in a race like this.

:25:55.:25:58.

There are wonderful bike riders to look out for, defending world

:25:59.:26:04.

champions, France. European champions from Spain. Belgium, they

:26:05.:26:08.

won the bronze medal a year ago. Columbia, one of their riders from

:26:09.:26:14.

the Omnium points race, he successfully defended that world

:26:15.:26:18.

title, he is racing with Jordan Para, they are former world junior

:26:19.:26:23.

champions. Look out for Columbia, they are all in white.

:26:24.:26:36.

Christian will explain how this race works. Are you sitting come to be?

:26:37.:26:43.

Tag team wrestling is often one of the similes that is drawn in this

:26:44.:26:51.

event. They must touch each other to change team members in this race.

:26:52.:26:56.

They ride at the top of the track at a slower speed, waiting for others

:26:57.:27:01.

to catch up. Normally there will be a hand sling, they grab their hands

:27:02.:27:04.

and transfer energy from one rider to the other. The French pairing are

:27:05.:27:09.

on the attack now. If they gain a lap in this race, they are one up

:27:10.:27:20.

ahead. It trumps every thing else. It does not matter how any points

:27:21.:27:23.

you have, if you are one up ahead, you are in the lead. That is what

:27:24.:27:36.

France are trying to do now. The world scratch race champion from a

:27:37.:27:39.

few years ago, a two-time Madison world champion, France are on the

:27:40.:27:44.

front foot, being asserted at the start of this race. Great Britain,

:27:45.:27:47.

three quarters of the way back through the field at the moment. A

:27:48.:27:51.

long way to go, this race will last for one hour, an early lap to put

:27:52.:28:00.

themselves in pole position. So Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish

:28:01.:28:08.

are racing. If you want to continue to follow

:28:09.:28:10.

the Madison, we are going to the red button.

:28:11.:28:17.

Now, we are going over to the Davis Cup.

:28:18.:28:21.

We are leaving BBC One but welcoming queue was on BBC Two to this cup tie

:28:22.:28:25.

between Great Britain and

:28:26.:28:26.

Clare Balding introduces live coverage from the final session of the World Championships at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Laura Trott will be seeking to add the omnium world title to the Olympic crown she won at the same venue during the 2012 Olympics. Trott's final race in the six-discipline event is the 25km points race, in which riders can earn or lose points during midrace sprints.

World titles are also decided in the women's sprint, men's keirin and men's madison, which was won by Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish when the World Championships were last held in Great Britain in 2008. Simon Brotherton and Chris Boardman provide the commentary.
