Good evening. The Lee Valley VeloPark is a sell-out once again at

:00:37.:00:42.

the world track cycling Championships and the British fans

:00:43.:00:46.

are in fine voice at the lasting's action. Gold, silver and Bronze

:00:47.:00:53.

where witnessed. COMMENTATOR: We are set for the big night at the

:00:54.:00:57.

velodrome. Britain with chances in all three events. Here we go. Ed

:00:58.:01:10.

Clancy leads on the opening lap. One of the smartest writers I have ever

:01:11.:01:15.

seen. It is the calm before the storm. It is all about trying to

:01:16.:01:20.

secure that gold medal. Becky James making sure she has not jumped from

:01:21.:01:24.

behind. Laura Trott is being drawn back into the race. Laura Trott is

:01:25.:01:34.

in the hunt for the gold. Here comes Laura Trott. The stadium gets to its

:01:35.:01:46.

feet. So close in the race for gold. To have the bronze after all I have

:01:47.:01:49.

been through over the last two years is incredible. I will put my house

:01:50.:01:55.

on her winning in Rio de Janeiro. It is incredible to win in front of my

:01:56.:02:01.

family. It was exhilarating. Sir Bradley Wiggins saying he is

:02:02.:02:04.

determined to overcome a result of the team pursuit against Australia.

:02:05.:02:10.

Laura Trott could become the most successful British Olympic athlete

:02:11.:02:13.

ever. This is what we have got coming up for you tonight. After a

:02:14.:02:19.

disappointing qualifying effort, Britain's women broke the national

:02:20.:02:23.

record to make it into the bronze medal race. The only thing missing

:02:24.:02:27.

in the career of Mark Cavendish is an Olympic medal and his place in

:02:28.:02:32.

Rio de Janeiro is on the line in the Omnium. Another medal is guaranteed

:02:33.:02:38.

for Britain. Owain Doull is up against Andy Tennant in the

:02:39.:02:40.

Individual Pursuit race bronze medal race. This is how it works out with

:02:41.:02:43.

timing. We will go to the red button for the

:02:44.:03:12.

men's Points Race with Jon Dibben going in that for Great Britain.

:03:13.:03:17.

With me in the studio is a man who got so excited, he broke his chair.

:03:18.:03:23.

Sir Chris Hoy. It was a fantastic night. An amazing night, what the

:03:24.:03:26.

home crowd needed to get a Gold Medal. It was fantastic. You get

:03:27.:03:33.

nervous appeared. I was on my feet. It just brings back the emotions.

:03:34.:03:38.

When you have no control as a spectator you get new -- nervous.

:03:39.:03:44.

Seder, Laura Trott, another medal, with a shoe rack with British sports

:03:45.:03:50.

women, not just cyclist? She could become the most successful British

:03:51.:03:54.

cyclist and Olympian in Rio de Janeiro. She is up there. We will be

:03:55.:03:59.

talking about Jessica Ennis and Katherine Grainger going into

:04:00.:04:05.

Brazil. Laura Trott tips does. She has done everything. She made the

:04:06.:04:11.

front page of at least one newspaper. Every race was close and

:04:12.:04:14.

tense but none more so the only men's team pursuit final. Written at

:04:15.:04:20.

against Australia and on the line for Great Britain was Ed Clancy,

:04:21.:04:24.

Owain Doull, Jon Dibben and Sir Bradley Wiggins. Let us relive it.

:04:25.:04:32.

COMMENTATOR: Britain finding it difficult to take a chunk of that

:04:33.:04:35.

lead. Ed Clancy goes to the front again. He has done a great job. Half

:04:36.:04:41.

a second in one single term. It is all going to come down to the

:04:42.:04:49.

closing stages of this race. Sega .3 seconds edit between the two teams

:04:50.:04:55.

and it is nothing. The endurance of Sir Bradley Wiggins will come into

:04:56.:04:58.

play. Great Britain are honourable and are closing the gap of the time.

:04:59.:05:06.

Closing in. Jon Dibben is off the front. Down to the final three. It

:05:07.:05:12.

is now back up to 0.4 seconds. Less than half a second in this classic

:05:13.:05:17.

confrontation. Great Britain against Australia. This is where the

:05:18.:05:21.

strength in depth will show for the Australians. Britain are holding

:05:22.:05:26.

their own but Australia have that extra man and that could make the

:05:27.:05:30.

difference. The Brits are on home turf and are still fighting. Three

:05:31.:05:36.

laps to go. The gap has came down again. Three laps in the race for

:05:37.:05:43.

gold in the men's team pursuit. Sir Bradley Wiggins on the front. He

:05:44.:05:48.

still has Ed Clancy. He still has Owain Doull. Who wants it more? The

:05:49.:05:53.

crowd are on their feet in the velodrome in London. It will require

:05:54.:05:58.

a big effort. The British trio will have to dig really deep now.

:05:59.:06:05.

Australia have had the lead all the way through. At the moment, Great

:06:06.:06:09.

Britain for the first time have the noses in front. So close but Britain

:06:10.:06:15.

leading the way in the race for gold in the team pursuit. It is going to

:06:16.:06:19.

be really tight at the end. Britain have lost it at the end. Australia

:06:20.:06:26.

claimed the gold medal. The elastic snapped in the British team on that

:06:27.:06:31.

last lap. They were racing on the edge and tiptoed over the edge on

:06:32.:06:35.

the very last lap. He gave everything and a little bit more in

:06:36.:06:40.

pursuit of that world title. It is Australia who win the day.

:06:41.:06:45.

Sir Bradley Wiggins said afterwards, he was certain, he would put his

:06:46.:06:50.

house on it that Britain would change that result in Rio de

:06:51.:06:55.

Janeiro. Why is he so sure? Part of that is mind games. He was the

:06:56.:07:00.

plaque that seep into the head of the Australians. He is confident he

:07:01.:07:04.

is not in that he is at his best. The team have not gelled yet.

:07:05.:07:11.

Edwards coming back from an injury and was not 100% on the first lap.

:07:12.:07:17.

That took a toll on him. It was a phenomenal performance. I think he

:07:18.:07:21.

is confident with a few more months preparation and able do it. Finding

:07:22.:07:27.

improvements, the woman's team pursuit, in qualification they were

:07:28.:07:29.

all over the place but have recovered to get to the bronze medal

:07:30.:07:33.

race. Where did they make changes and how did they find that

:07:34.:07:37.

different? We can look at some footage. When they went out the

:07:38.:07:41.

blocks in qualification, there was some gaps and the line was wavy.

:07:42.:07:47.

They were not as together as we used to seeing them. Look at the splits,

:07:48.:07:50.

they were quicker out the blocks yesterday this afternoon. When they

:07:51.:07:55.

went to the analysis, they were looking to quell the holes came from

:07:56.:08:00.

and where the pace changed will stop they will be looking to make the

:08:01.:08:03.

changes to make sure they are the property unit when they come into

:08:04.:08:10.

the ride today. Joanna ended up doing a half. They broke just after

:08:11.:08:14.

that. Laura was time to bring it back onto pace. They have looked at

:08:15.:08:20.

the pace grafted cf the gap opened up because of acceleration because

:08:21.:08:24.

they are using huge gears and it is hard to accelerate on. When a gap

:08:25.:08:30.

opened, it can affect them. This was today. This is when they broke the

:08:31.:08:34.

national record and have cycled faster than they have done their

:08:35.:08:39.

lives. They were tidier. The right together from the first half. It had

:08:40.:08:42.

them about one lap to get on it before. They went about three 10th

:08:43.:08:52.

slower for the first lap. The entire team was gradual. They were almost

:08:53.:08:58.

one seconds slower over the first kilometre. They had decided it was

:08:59.:09:03.

the centre part of the race that was the most ragged. They gave Laura

:09:04.:09:08.

Trott a 2.5 turn in the middle of the race to settle the pace down.

:09:09.:09:12.

That was a positive change because everyone is tucked in nice and

:09:13.:09:17.

tightly on the wheel. When Joanna came up to take over the Chinese to

:09:18.:09:24.

get that 4.1 six. She had to do a monstrous lap and a half term. She

:09:25.:09:29.

had the energy to do that because Laura had protected her team-mates

:09:30.:09:33.

well. There is no set pattern. You do not overlap and a heart every

:09:34.:09:42.

time. -- go for one map and a half. It goes on who has the best legs.

:09:43.:09:48.

You can see Joanna thanking her for that. She settled the pace and give

:09:49.:09:55.

the team the confidence they needed. It was impressive to see. The big

:09:56.:10:03.

surprise in the woman's team pursuit, Australia, they are not

:10:04.:10:08.

even in the race for the medals. What happened to them? They did not

:10:09.:10:16.

quite qualify this morning. 4.18.5. You would expect that to be fast

:10:17.:10:20.

enough but the world has moved on so far. Ultimately, in the second

:10:21.:10:26.

right, you have to go superfast. From 4.13 this year to 4.18 this

:10:27.:10:31.

year, it did not cut it. That was the USA smashing them. They had

:10:32.:10:38.

Sarah Hammer and two more riders that retired and when it went up to

:10:39.:10:43.

four micrometres, they brought in three riders. Chloe Dygert is from

:10:44.:10:47.

the road races. The former riders are evenly matched. It used to be

:10:48.:10:53.

Sarah Hammer and pulling that team around but now they are able to

:10:54.:10:59.

continue evenly. That is the British team warming up downstairs. When

:11:00.:11:02.

they come out, they will have the benefit of a huge support. The noise

:11:03.:11:07.

last night was incredible. This is incredible. The 5th-6 race but

:11:08.:11:16.

Australia and Italy. The commentary team is Chris Boardman and Simon

:11:17.:11:17.

Brotherton. COMMENTATOR: We are almost ready to

:11:18.:11:33.

go with Italy and Australia. Francesco Pantano and Silvio Proto

:11:34.:11:42.

said chief. Australia with the Gold Medal one year ago. Three of those

:11:43.:11:47.

riders, two of those riders, Rebecca Wyre Sac has been brought in. She

:11:48.:11:52.

was not only start sheet. Half of this team one one year ago and the

:11:53.:11:59.

wheels have kind of spectacularly in this event. World records being

:12:00.:12:03.

broken 12 months earlier and dethroning the British team who made

:12:04.:12:07.

this event thereon. They came very strong and fell apart. We expected

:12:08.:12:13.

to see them followed up and in the final. A very unusual place to see

:12:14.:12:17.

the Australian four. The world-record holders and defending

:12:18.:12:21.

champions. They were thrashed by the United States this afternoon. Can

:12:22.:12:26.

they remind everybody of the undoubted world-class and talent?

:12:27.:12:31.

And post a good time, albeit for fifth place. I have to say that the

:12:32.:12:35.

Italians as a squad, not just in this discipline but across the board

:12:36.:12:40.

so far, have been impressing. Italy are coming up through the rankings,

:12:41.:12:44.

aren't they? They are performing strongly in the races they have

:12:45.:12:49.

seen. We were talking about the young 19-year-old that is leading

:12:50.:12:53.

the Individual Pursuit race petition at the moment. Incredible right by

:12:54.:12:54.

him. In the Omnium and distance events.

:12:55.:13:05.

They are strong normally. They have a strong road culture Anderson as

:13:06.:13:09.

they get good, they are mopped up into one of the big boot squads.

:13:10.:13:13.

Good to see Italy coming back and we have to see what they are doing. The

:13:14.:13:18.

Australians will not be looking to win this to get first place, they

:13:19.:13:22.

will be looking to show everybody the Harry forced to be reckoned with

:13:23.:13:25.

and that they can still win in Rio de Janeiro.

:13:26.:13:37.

Edmondson was involved in an accident, she collided with the

:13:38.:13:42.

sight of a car, couple of weeks before the championships. There was

:13:43.:13:46.

a sizeable dent in the vehicle but just they banged up me for her and

:13:47.:13:50.

she was OK and able to take her seat on the plane to come to London. You

:13:51.:13:55.

never know whether that takes a little bit out of a rider and if

:13:56.:14:00.

there is residue from that accident. They are travelling at the moment. A

:14:01.:14:06.

very fast first alarm at. Already into the same straight as the

:14:07.:14:11.

Italians. As we have not reached two kilometres, we could see a catch

:14:12.:14:16.

here, if not, we will see a fast time. Australia performing in the

:14:17.:14:20.

manner we would come to expect from them. They were the world champions

:14:21.:14:31.

last year. And also in 2010, this competition has only been held eight

:14:32.:14:34.

times before. Great Britain have won six of the eight world title races.

:14:35.:14:41.

Australia the other two. A changing of the order little bit in the team

:14:42.:14:49.

pursuit. Australia closing in with almost every resolution of the

:14:50.:14:55.

pedals. They are almost certainly going to catch the Italians now.

:14:56.:14:58.

Bearing down quickly, just 40 metres between them. They will get a

:14:59.:15:04.

significant tone now from the Italians. They have them in their

:15:05.:15:08.

sights, being told at the side of the track that they are on schedule.

:15:09.:15:11.

They are aiming for something quick, gone through two calamitous in 2.1

:15:12.:15:18.

zero. Nobody really saw this afternoon coming, the USA had looked

:15:19.:15:23.

very good in the qualifying ride but we did not expect Australia to be

:15:24.:15:26.

beaten in the manner they were beaten. They were walloped by the

:15:27.:15:32.

Americans earlier today. As you can see, Australia have put that bind

:15:33.:15:37.

them. A problem, they are down to three now. We saw some slowed

:15:38.:15:49.

changes early on. But they are inside one K to go, they have

:15:50.:15:53.

shelter from the Italians, they are also down to three so it won't be a

:15:54.:15:57.

problem but they are right on the edge, they do not look like they are

:15:58.:16:01.

holding it together, dragging it on the previous round. Less than three

:16:02.:16:06.

laps to go as Australia make the catch on Italy, just as the third

:16:07.:16:10.

rider was beginning to lose contact with the other two. The rider at the

:16:11.:16:16.

back for Australia was Ashlee Ankudinoff. 3.14.379 and Italy with

:16:17.:16:29.

3.21.1 12. If that had gone the full distance, the way the team was

:16:30.:16:33.

looking, they started off technically well, nicely into

:16:34.:16:37.

position but a disparity in form in that team and I think they would

:16:38.:16:42.

have blown apart again. We saw fractures beginning to appear. They

:16:43.:16:47.

were about to lose their third rider so I think they would have had the

:16:48.:16:51.

same problem. They have some serious issues to sort out between now and

:16:52.:17:00.

the summer. Their was considerably quicker than China and Poland in the

:17:01.:17:03.

race before but we would expect that. Australia complete what has

:17:04.:17:11.

been a disappointing World Championship in terms of the women's

:17:12.:17:15.

team pursuit. Gary Sutton is their coach with much to ponder. Rio is

:17:16.:17:21.

still a few months away and still some time to make some adjustments

:17:22.:17:26.

which they will, it would seem they definitely need to make them. The

:17:27.:17:31.

fork and into Mark, we have not had that long for the women, the

:17:32.:17:38.

countries are still finding their feet with the new discipline now.

:17:39.:17:43.

Playing around with the strength in depth. Particularly in the women's

:17:44.:17:48.

group, there are a lot of teams in the hunt and it is a great

:17:49.:17:54.

competition to watch. Those people in the crowd who bought their

:17:55.:17:59.

tickets for this evening may have hoped to see a gold medal ride for

:18:00.:18:05.

Great Britain for these four riders. Elinor Barker, Laura Trott, who won

:18:06.:18:11.

the scratch race just 24-hour 's ago and for Johanna Rowsell Shand, that

:18:12.:18:15.

is not the case but at least they have a chance of a medal and that

:18:16.:18:20.

will be some relief after the awfulness of their ride in the

:18:21.:18:23.

qualifying ride but they redeemed themselves earlier today with an

:18:24.:18:26.

excellent ride, much more the sort of thing we have been used to. Great

:18:27.:18:30.

Britain have never ridden faster than they did earlier today albeit

:18:31.:18:35.

no doubt helped by the fact they were catching and did overtake the

:18:36.:18:39.

Chinese. They are the favourites in this ride, that is for sure. They

:18:40.:18:44.

won't be going out to subdue a bronze medal, they will be going out

:18:45.:18:48.

to set a time to give themselves a real work-out and take themselves to

:18:49.:18:51.

the edge and see what they are capable of.

:18:52.:18:57.

Ten seconds to go, join a Rowsell Shand will lead for Great Britain

:18:58.:19:06.

here the first lap. And away we go. Echoes of 2012 here with the roar

:19:07.:19:10.

from the crowd as the rider set off from the starters gate. Rowsell

:19:11.:19:20.

Shand on the front. New Zealand have been consistently on the podium in

:19:21.:19:23.

recent times in this event but they have never been world champions and

:19:24.:19:29.

Great Britain making a fast art. A fast start and Rowsell Shand taking

:19:30.:19:36.

it for a full lap and a half. And three quarters when you are the

:19:37.:19:41.

starter, a big effort at the start. She is getting the effort in the

:19:42.:19:47.

first three kilometres. She in many ways is the anchor of the women's

:19:48.:19:51.

team, she has a fantastic engine, Laura Trott now racing on the front,

:19:52.:19:58.

she peels off. A very short-term. Ciara Horne is right on her wheel. I

:19:59.:20:03.

was expecting a longer term at the start of this race from Laura but

:20:04.:20:09.

she was more injecting the pace there. She is doing a good job of

:20:10.:20:14.

it. So much experience in the British line-up, two of them Olympic

:20:15.:20:19.

champions, Rowsell Shand and Laura Trott and more to come from Great

:20:20.:20:23.

Britain one assumes ahead of Rio with Katie Archibald to come back

:20:24.:20:27.

into this squad as well. She has a knee injury which has kept her out

:20:28.:20:31.

of these World Championships and Great Britain asserting early

:20:32.:20:35.

authority in this race for bronze. A much more steady start compared to

:20:36.:20:42.

the Australians, a second slower. Taking it steady which was the

:20:43.:20:45.

problem in the qualifying ride, they went out too hard and put the team

:20:46.:20:49.

under too much less early on, a wise decision. Laura Trott going to the

:20:50.:20:54.

front, we will see if she does a longer term before peeling off with

:20:55.:20:58.

Elinor Barker right behind her. Ciara Horne is third in the line and

:20:59.:21:02.

tucked in at the back is Johanna Rowsell Shand. It is a much longer

:21:03.:21:07.

term at the front from the world scratch race champion Laura Trott.

:21:08.:21:11.

Not the best of changes from Johanna Rowsell. She had to push on a bit to

:21:12.:21:17.

get back on the wheel and that could cost her a little bit later on. A

:21:18.:21:22.

strong turn from Laura Trott. Elinor Barker takes up the running, still

:21:23.:21:26.

21 years of age and a two-time world champion in this event. Great

:21:27.:21:33.

Britain's lead goes up now, it is over two seconds. I might be

:21:34.:21:37.

tempting fate here after what we have seen in this competition but I

:21:38.:21:41.

think this is no longer about who gets the medal. It is about the

:21:42.:21:45.

times to see what Great Britain can do, they cannot move higher than

:21:46.:21:48.

third place but they can send a message to the rest of the world.

:21:49.:21:53.

Ciara Horne was part of the European team of two years ago. She just

:21:54.:21:57.

peels off the front for Great Britain as we have a quick look at

:21:58.:22:01.

New Zealand, still riding strongly as a four but well behind Great

:22:02.:22:06.

Britain. As a contest, it isn't really one at the moment. Great

:22:07.:22:11.

Britain leading the way by a considerable margin. Nearly a second

:22:12.:22:18.

up on the times of the Australians through this point. Paul Manning,

:22:19.:22:20.

the team coach indicating they are well up on schedule now. Johanna

:22:21.:22:24.

Rowsell Shand looking like she had to work hard to get that back wheel

:22:25.:22:31.

in front of her. The strain is starting to tell and it should be at

:22:32.:22:35.

the speed they are travelling. Thumbs up from Paul Manning, they

:22:36.:22:39.

are doing a good job at working hard, their heads starting to move

:22:40.:22:43.

and straining to stay on the wheels. They have gone through 3000 metres

:22:44.:22:49.

in a faster time than Australia. They are riding really well. As you

:22:50.:22:54.

can see, they are still riding as a four. Making a point after their

:22:55.:22:59.

blip of yesterday. They will come round to take the bell now, the

:23:00.:23:05.

sprint starts now. Just a handful of seconds remaining. Here we go with

:23:06.:23:10.

Great Britain halfway through their final lap. The bronze medal in the

:23:11.:23:14.

bag, Ciara Horne riding on the front, the Forum of them will make

:23:15.:23:19.

it to the line together. Here come Great Britain now. And a time of

:23:20.:23:24.

4.16.540, just marginally slower than earlier today. But the bronze

:23:25.:23:30.

medal was never in doubt. And the crowd have seen a victorious ride

:23:31.:23:34.

for Great Britain but the colour is ultimately bronze rather than the

:23:35.:23:38.

gold they might have hoped for. When you consider how disappointing and

:23:39.:23:43.

how poor that ride was in the qualifying situation, at least they

:23:44.:23:46.

have been able to salvage something from these championships and

:23:47.:23:50.

normally they are so consistent. They can take pride in that ride for

:23:51.:23:56.

sure, a much better team effort, good communication and distribution

:23:57.:23:58.

of the workload. Different lengths of terms, very good ride by Johanna

:23:59.:24:05.

Rowsell Shand. She took a huge turn at the front, I didn't think she was

:24:06.:24:09.

going to make the finish, she might have gone out at three K but they

:24:10.:24:15.

dug deep and finished as a four. It looked in the early stages as if

:24:16.:24:19.

first of all, Laura Trott did a very short-term at the front and then an

:24:20.:24:24.

extra long one next time round. Cautious at the start, won't they,

:24:25.:24:27.

that was the problem in the opening round. I hard turn that put

:24:28.:24:33.

everybody into the red too early in the race, so just backing off a bit

:24:34.:24:38.

so they could finish strongly. Second medal of these championships

:24:39.:24:44.

for Laura Trott. Having won a gold medal yesterday. Elinor Barker,

:24:45.:24:48.

already a two-time world champion at just 21 years of age. Ciara Horne, a

:24:49.:24:52.

World Championship medallist for the first time. What can you say about

:24:53.:24:57.

Johanna Rowsell, so experience. Such a key member of the team for such a

:24:58.:25:02.

long time. A five-time world champion. Part of the Olympic gold

:25:03.:25:12.

medal winning team as well. Not a desperately quick time by their

:25:13.:25:15.

standards, it is right up there but they might have hoped to go quicker.

:25:16.:25:22.

It is four or 5 degrees cooler than it was yesterday and that makes a

:25:23.:25:25.

big difference. The air conditioning has been turned on. Density is

:25:26.:25:31.

everything these kind of events. This is going to be really

:25:32.:25:36.

interesting, Canada and the United States will compete in the final for

:25:37.:25:40.

gold as the Canadians take to the track. Alison Beveridge, Jasmine

:25:41.:25:46.

Glaser, Kirsty Lay and George Baker. Some fantastic background stories

:25:47.:25:53.

for these riders. Looking at the American line-up, Sarah Hammer,

:25:54.:25:57.

seven times world champion, Jennifer Valente as well, silver medallist in

:25:58.:26:03.

the individual pursuit last year. Chloe, who Sarah Storey was talking

:26:04.:26:08.

about earlier on, a double world champion. She only stepped on the

:26:09.:26:11.

track for the first time last October. She was a football player

:26:12.:26:16.

in high school, she had really bad shins Bunsen took up cycling in

:26:17.:26:21.

2012, she was on a talent ID programme in 2014 and has not looked

:26:22.:26:31.

back ever since. They have some real strength in depth for the first

:26:32.:26:34.

time, the American team, it has always been Sarah Hammer, down to

:26:35.:26:39.

her and her form but now they have clicked and got some real talent.

:26:40.:26:48.

And a good coach. They have a double junior world champion, a world

:26:49.:26:53.

medallist and Sarah Hammer, who really is the leader of the team.

:26:54.:27:00.

And Canada as well, George assembling, she was an Olympic skier

:27:01.:27:06.

in the Super G in Vancouver in 2010. She is also a ski cross World Cup

:27:07.:27:09.

medallist on five occasions and now looking to go to Rio in track

:27:10.:27:14.

cycling. Kirsty Lay, former speed skater. Jasmine Glazer and Olympic

:27:15.:27:18.

bronze medallist on this track in 2012 in the team pursuit. And Alison

:27:19.:27:24.

Beveridge, winner of two bronze medals last year, including in this

:27:25.:27:28.

event. Canada will surely end up better than last year, will it be

:27:29.:27:33.

gold or silver? The smart money is on the United States as the team to

:27:34.:27:36.

beat here. They made a blistering start but the Canadians has darted

:27:37.:27:41.

to pull back, I think it is the team who makes the least mistakes to come

:27:42.:27:45.

out as victor here. Everyone pushing it to the limit, we have seen so

:27:46.:27:49.

many teams falling apart in that last kilometre and it takes a lot of

:27:50.:27:53.

experience to hold it together to be in a final and back off over this

:27:54.:27:58.

first kilometre. It is evenly matched, just one tenth of a second

:27:59.:27:59.

in it at the moment. Next time at the line they will be

:28:00.:28:16.

at the one kilometre mark. The United States just edging it so far

:28:17.:28:21.

but a long way to go in this final. Slightly faster than Britain's

:28:22.:28:26.

opening kilometre. They are on a similar schedule at the moment with

:28:27.:28:30.

both teams looking very smooth and well structured. Good changes,

:28:31.:28:34.

getting good height and having the confidence to go high. When they

:28:35.:28:38.

start changing layout that is when you start worrying. They have been

:28:39.:28:44.

excited about the Americans were riding today and the record was

:28:45.:28:48.

under threat in the race against Australia, they did not quite break

:28:49.:28:55.

the world record. There is more to come from the United States over the

:28:56.:28:58.

next couple of years when you think how young half of the team is. Also

:28:59.:29:04.

Canada. The Canadian coaches saying they have got seven riders who are

:29:05.:29:09.

interchangeable, they are back strong. The Canadian team are coming

:29:10.:29:13.

under pressure. They are starting to work hard at the midpoint of this

:29:14.:29:17.

race and have lost more ground. Nearly one second behind. The

:29:18.:29:23.

Americans still have the fastest time we have seen that this evening.

:29:24.:29:29.

Kirsty Lee Riding on the front for Canada and for the United States it

:29:30.:29:32.

is Chloe Dygert who has been described as a freak of nature. The

:29:33.:29:38.

19-year-old. She is very strong despite the relative lack of

:29:39.:29:43.

experience. They do not look inexperienced, very smooth changes.

:29:44.:29:51.

4.16 pace at the moment. The Americans are down to three and that

:29:52.:29:55.

is early for that. They have got a lead but it is not unassailable. It

:29:56.:30:00.

is Kelly Catlin, the 20-year-old who has bailed out. They cannot lose any

:30:01.:30:06.

more, the Americans. Those three have to try to finish together. They

:30:07.:30:11.

are still looking good. I was expecting the Canadians to lose one

:30:12.:30:20.

first. The Americans are still looking like a tight unit but they

:30:21.:30:25.

do not have an alternative plan now. Once you have slowed it down, no one

:30:26.:30:30.

has the legs to pick it up again. The Americans are storming and have

:30:31.:30:34.

got the Canadians on the scene straight now. This is a superb right

:30:35.:30:38.

by the United States who have got two laps to go. The rider leading

:30:39.:30:46.

the way was Chloe Dygert. On the front, number 314. They have got a

:30:47.:30:54.

good buffer and need to hold it together. There is a change in the

:30:55.:31:03.

middle of the street. It is Jennifer Valente who has went to the front

:31:04.:31:07.

and the extra turn of pace on the last lap has split up the Americans

:31:08.:31:11.

which will not help them. Chloe Dygert is trying to get back on. The

:31:12.:31:16.

winning time for the United States is 4.16.8. Canada finishing in 4.1

:31:17.:31:23.

nine. Never any doubt about the outcome but untidy on the final lap.

:31:24.:31:29.

The order has changed in the women's team pursuit because this is an

:31:30.:31:34.

event that is still inside its first decade of existence. It is changing

:31:35.:31:38.

and developing all the time and there are new names and new teams

:31:39.:31:42.

for Great Britain and Australia to look out for this summer. Not least

:31:43.:31:47.

the two we have seen in this World Championship final. It is great for

:31:48.:31:50.

the sport to see the victory is spread around. Great for America to

:31:51.:31:55.

get a victory and will give them the confidence to invent -- in the team

:31:56.:32:10.

and the sport. It is not about going quickly, it is about consistency.

:32:11.:32:12.

Great Britain posted the fastest time this evening but did not do it

:32:13.:32:15.

in the qualifying round and that is when it mattered to make sure you

:32:16.:32:18.

wear in this race. It is the second time they have won a medal in

:32:19.:32:20.

women's team pursuit, they won a Silver Medal and Sarah Hammer was in

:32:21.:32:23.

that final. She is still there at 32 years of age and is the captain of

:32:24.:32:27.

the squad. They have gone one better this time and for the first time,

:32:28.:32:31.

the United States are the women's team pursuit gold medallists. Right

:32:32.:32:35.

from the start when they got out of the starters Kate on that opening

:32:36.:32:40.

lap, they assumed control of the match -- of the race. Canada were

:32:41.:32:44.

not able to put themselves in position to put the Americans under

:32:45.:32:51.

oppression. They got 0.4 of an advantage inside the first lap and

:32:52.:32:54.

did not let it go. The Canadians coming back but never got to be a

:32:55.:32:59.

nose in front. USA take the Gold Medal and Canada finishing with the

:33:00.:33:03.

silver. Great Britain have the bronze medal.

:33:04.:33:08.

Terrific result for the USA and we could here them screaming. They were

:33:09.:33:14.

up for that. World champions for the first time and you can see how much

:33:15.:33:19.

it means. Great Britain and Australia dominated for many years.

:33:20.:33:23.

It is great for the sport. The British fans want to see better

:33:24.:33:29.

results. The legislators did 4.16 point five. It is a better

:33:30.:33:36.

performance but you have to be frustrated. A few are a British

:33:37.:33:42.

cyclist looking at that club, if we had not messed up qualifying we

:33:43.:33:46.

would've won that. -- at the clock. You have to try not to think like

:33:47.:33:50.

that. It gives you confidence. You will have everything to push forth

:33:51.:33:55.

in the final in Rio de Janeiro. Race incidents happen and it is the most

:33:56.:33:59.

brutal place for it to happen, in the World Championships but it is

:34:00.:34:04.

better here than the Olympics. The British quartet were dominant and

:34:05.:34:06.

they looked so beautifully clean. Everything was done beautifully.

:34:07.:34:15.

Laura Trott did two two lap to us. We almost matched the time in the

:34:16.:34:20.

semifinal. How good was at the finished as a tight format? It is

:34:21.:34:25.

very disciplined to be able to do that. She is the extra man in case

:34:26.:34:34.

of an incident. In case there's a puncture. You always want to be

:34:35.:34:38.

there and being able to finish after a lap and three quarters start, from

:34:39.:34:43.

Joanna Rowsell, it is not easy to do that but she is exceptional as an

:34:44.:34:48.

athlete. When the event moved from three to four column at us, she was

:34:49.:34:55.

able to extend her lap at the start. The second medal of the

:34:56.:34:59.

championships for Laura Trott. She still has an event to come. The

:35:00.:35:05.

other three caught up with us. Congratulations, that was about more

:35:06.:35:08.

than a bronze medal, that was about showing how good this team can be.

:35:09.:35:14.

Definitely. We had good winter training in preparation for these

:35:15.:35:17.

championships. We had ups and downs. It was a good performance. In

:35:18.:35:23.

qualifying we tried to be the fastest qualifiers. It is so close

:35:24.:35:26.

at the top of the world, it was too much. We are here to push the

:35:27.:35:34.

boundaries. We could have been conservative and qualified second

:35:35.:35:38.

but we wanted to drop qualification. We came back today and shown the

:35:39.:35:46.

types of times we can write. Fair play to America, they have been

:35:47.:35:52.

strong today with the times. We are over the moon with the bronze medal.

:35:53.:35:58.

It is your first World Championship medal, congratulations, what has

:35:59.:36:03.

changed in this team overnight? In particular that is change, yesterday

:36:04.:36:09.

we went out too hard. We have been working on the speed element which

:36:10.:36:15.

in Brazil will be beneficial. We will aim to go quicker. We put our

:36:16.:36:23.

heads together, let us get this bronze medal. Over the moon. An

:36:24.:36:27.

impressive performance, both in the first round and into that bronze

:36:28.:36:33.

medal race. Eleanor, to back-up two big rides like that, breaking the

:36:34.:36:37.

national record and then another 4.16 is impressive. The national

:36:38.:36:41.

record, I do not think anyone expected that. We are so happy to

:36:42.:36:46.

come across the line. We lived for those moments. As much as it was not

:36:47.:36:56.

a positively qualified fifth, we have ended up any better position

:36:57.:37:01.

than Australia who qualified faster because got fifth. We got to win a

:37:02.:37:07.

bicycle race which is why we do it. Congratulations. I love the

:37:08.:37:11.

simplicity of that. We just have to win the right race. There is Laura

:37:12.:37:15.

Trott, the fourth member of that team. Look at a schedule over these

:37:16.:37:19.

championships. She is doing pretty much everything she can. With the

:37:20.:37:24.

qualifying and the medal races as well, that is as busy as it you can

:37:25.:37:30.

get. It is tough but that is what she prepares for. It is gruelling.

:37:31.:37:34.

It is the cycling equivalent of the heptathlon in order Clapham on. It

:37:35.:37:37.

is the test of an all-round athlete. She has to be fitter than any fit

:37:38.:37:48.

person in the world. Definitely. She is on the top of game. She is able

:37:49.:37:53.

to be on the top of her game on a regular basis. It is impressive.

:37:54.:37:58.

When you get into competition, when you have a break, it is more

:37:59.:38:02.

detrimental than to keep going. In swimming, you see people getting in

:38:03.:38:07.

the pool on every single session, Phelps in Beijing, when you get into

:38:08.:38:14.

competition, it is better. We will move onto the men's individual race.

:38:15.:38:16.

Britain has a guaranteed medal. It is about the team and they have

:38:17.:38:35.

got a bronze medal in Britain between Owain Doull and Andy

:38:36.:38:39.

Tennant. They are friends but still want to win. Chris Boardman is the

:38:40.:38:45.

expert in the Individual Pursuit race the 1992 Olympic champion.

:38:46.:38:49.

Chris, what is the key? What you have to be thinking? You have to

:38:50.:38:54.

focus on being the best of what you can be which is a cliche. Focus on

:38:55.:38:59.

your own performance, not the result. And the schedule. The most

:39:00.:39:04.

important thing about this event is the first 30 seconds. That is when

:39:05.:39:08.

it does not hurt and you can do an awful lot of damage. They need to be

:39:09.:39:13.

very careful at the start but are both experienced riders. I have seen

:39:14.:39:17.

some fantastic riding from both of them. Owain Doull is the story for

:39:18.:39:22.

the male endurance riders since we have been here. He has shown he is

:39:23.:39:26.

capable of riding with the very best in the world. He did a fantastic job

:39:27.:39:30.

in the team pursuit yesterday and back that up with the fast time

:39:31.:39:31.

today. COMMENTATOR: 20 seconds to go until

:39:32.:39:42.

the start. Owain Doull from South Wales. Two-time world silver medal

:39:43.:39:46.

cyst -- silver medallist in the team pursuit. Five seconds to go. An all

:39:47.:39:58.

British race for bronze in the Individual Pursuit race to Andy

:39:59.:40:00.

Tennant is the more experienced of the two of them. He has been a world

:40:01.:40:06.

champion before any team pursuit in Melbourne ahead of the Olympic Games

:40:07.:40:12.

in 2012. The web team mates any team pursuit. Andy Tennant did not get a

:40:13.:40:16.

ride in the final but he wrote in the ride that got them into the

:40:17.:40:23.

final. Owain Doull ran all three times. -- the road. Very strongly

:40:24.:40:30.

will stop Andy Tennant will need all that experience.

:40:31.:40:37.

You do not need to make much a an mistake to have huge advantage taken

:40:38.:40:46.

out. Owain Doull is impressive on the road as well as the track. He is

:40:47.:40:52.

in front just buy a shade. He has been impressive in the two of

:40:53.:40:56.

Britain last autumn. He finished third overall. He has a potential

:40:57.:41:05.

road career on the continent on hold to concentrate on the team with Sir

:41:06.:41:09.

Bradley Wiggins and the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He is concentrating

:41:10.:41:13.

on the Individual Pursuit race and has a steady style on the bike. When

:41:14.:41:19.

he was in the qualifiers this morning, he set a new record for the

:41:20.:41:24.

London velodrome. It was subsequently lowered by Philippe

:41:25.:41:28.

Blaugrana and -- Domenic Weinstein. He is an amended form. Andy Tennant

:41:29.:41:41.

will not let it go. The gap is still 0.2 seconds. It is very close and

:41:42.:41:44.

that experience will come to tell and the back-end of this race. Both

:41:45.:41:49.

riders being shown by their respective coaches that they are

:41:50.:41:53.

just about on schedule, slightly behind in the case of Owain Doull.

:41:54.:41:59.

What they have set themselves, I do not know and could have kept it

:42:00.:42:02.

secret from each other. People might be interested to know at home, are

:42:03.:42:06.

they racing to the own schedule, what me and to what extent are they

:42:07.:42:11.

racing against each other rider in terms of where they are at any given

:42:12.:42:17.

moment? It is a good point. Yet another cliche. At the end of the

:42:18.:42:21.

day, you can only do what you are capable of. The best way to write a

:42:22.:42:25.

person, forget the other person and do your own thing. Andy Tennant has

:42:26.:42:30.

just went in front. That is what he has to do. Only in the last

:42:31.:42:34.

kilometre, when you start to get information from the coach telling

:42:35.:42:38.

you about the other person, that is when the ocean can make a

:42:39.:42:49.

difference. This would be eight two men do is finish to this race and

:42:50.:42:52.

still several laps to go. It is really close. Andy Tennant has got

:42:53.:42:55.

the bit between his teeth. Andy Tennant missed out on the ride in

:42:56.:42:57.

the final of the team pursuit yesterday and is looking to make up

:42:58.:42:58.

for it here today. It is about putting together a

:42:59.:43:13.

series. It is about consistency and being to back up right after ride.

:43:14.:43:19.

Andy Tennant the national champion in the individual pursuit. Round

:43:20.:43:25.

they come with three laps to go now. And it is half a second and tenant

:43:26.:43:31.

is really dishing it out here. Still in the realms of the sprint. Less

:43:32.:43:35.

than half a second in it, it can come down to who can go anaerobic

:43:36.:43:42.

and push it in the last few seconds. What a final two laps we will have

:43:43.:43:47.

in this battle for bronze between the British duo, Andy Tennant

:43:48.:43:50.

leading the way at the moment but it is extremely close between tenant

:43:51.:43:57.

and Owain Doull. It is England against Wales and Owain Doull has to

:43:58.:44:03.

find half a second from somewhere in the last lap of this race. Andy

:44:04.:44:07.

Tennant still looks good. Still looks strong but Owain Doull is a

:44:08.:44:12.

scrapper. He will push it all the way to the line. At the end, it has

:44:13.:44:21.

gone to Andy Tennant. Andy Tennant takes it, 4.18.3, a 10th of a second

:44:22.:44:32.

between them. It wasn't the gold but what a race it was. Andy Tennant

:44:33.:44:39.

obviously happy with that, Owain Doull has to bow to the experience

:44:40.:44:44.

there. Maybe that extra ride in the legs makes the difference. Anything

:44:45.:44:47.

can make a difference when it is that close. Great ride by both

:44:48.:44:56.

competitors. Andy Tennant was a picture of concentration and

:44:57.:45:01.

determination. And he was absolutely determined he was not going to let

:45:02.:45:05.

it slip away. Owain Doull lead in the early stages of the race but

:45:06.:45:10.

slowly and surely, Andy Tennant kept his rhythm and kept going and slowly

:45:11.:45:16.

overhauled his younger opponent. He had to get a buffer though, that was

:45:17.:45:19.

some sprint at the end by young Owain Doull. Trying to get

:45:20.:45:26.

everything out here. It was a fantastic finish but you knew that

:45:27.:45:29.

even though it was half a second going into the final lap but Owain

:45:30.:45:33.

Doull was not going to give up and that he would push and fight and

:45:34.:45:38.

scrap to the line. In the end, it was a fantastic race between the

:45:39.:45:42.

pair of them. If the race the gold is as thrilling as that, I don't

:45:43.:45:45.

think anyone in the crowd will be complaining. Andy Tennant, by a hair

:45:46.:45:52.

's breadth, takes the bronze medal and hopefully he can get his breath

:45:53.:45:56.

back, looking to have a cosy chat on the floor. Congratulations, it is

:45:57.:46:04.

not like you who is tired, I just felt like taking a seat. That was a

:46:05.:46:09.

well timed race, Mr consistency is what they call you, that was a very

:46:10.:46:15.

consistent ride? That is the icing on the cake for me, the World

:46:16.:46:19.

Championships, the interview in Manchester, I was struggling to get

:46:20.:46:25.

a ride in the semi yesterday, I did a decent ride. I was chuffed with

:46:26.:46:28.

that, to come away with an individual bronze medal, if you had

:46:29.:46:34.

said three weeks ago, I would have been betting against myself. Do you

:46:35.:46:41.

know what schedule Owain Doull was riding too? I didn't. Me and Paul

:46:42.:46:48.

went our own way, I got the old boss back so we discussed it. We said

:46:49.:46:52.

14.8, 15.8 and on we went up to 15.7. So we pushed it up a bit. I

:46:53.:47:00.

was like old this and that is what I tried to do and after two K, I was

:47:01.:47:06.

just nudging up. The last couple of laps, he was egging me on so I

:47:07.:47:11.

didn't know where I was, I was just flat-out, looking to flat line. An

:47:12.:47:17.

excellent ride from Andy Tennant, winning the bronze medal but the

:47:18.:47:20.

gold medal race as you can see is just underway and the German rider,

:47:21.:47:27.

Dominic wine stain is up against the rider from Italy, just making the

:47:28.:47:30.

breakthrough at World Championship level. The German is the older of

:47:31.:47:37.

the duo, his opponent just 19 years of age, a fantastic talent, he will

:47:38.:47:43.

be riding on the continental pellet on from the start of next season. On

:47:44.:47:52.

paper it should be a close race, just one tenth of a second between

:47:53.:47:55.

these two in the previous round as well. Simon was looking at some of

:47:56.:48:00.

the splits and pointing out earlier that the Italian has started really

:48:01.:48:06.

slow compared to his finishing time. That says that the Italian has more

:48:07.:48:10.

to give and that is how he has decided to play it this time. They

:48:11.:48:14.

can go out quick and he has done that. The German, Weinstein is

:48:15.:48:24.

coming back at him now. At 21, he is a former world points champion. He

:48:25.:48:32.

was beaten by Stefan Kueng, the young Swiss rider last year but he

:48:33.:48:37.

has been there or thereabouts. A double national champion and here he

:48:38.:48:41.

is in this World Championship final for the first time. Weinstein is an

:48:42.:48:45.

exciting talent, fourth in the junior road time trial a couple of

:48:46.:48:51.

years ago. I don't know if he has been holding back like he did in the

:48:52.:48:54.

previous round but he his Arthur second adrift. Quite a lot to pull

:48:55.:49:02.

back before reaching half distance. He has stemmed the flow and he is

:49:03.:49:07.

holding it there. Let us see if on the split, as he starts his charge.

:49:08.:49:12.

He looks like someone who is looking around. Not someone doing his own

:49:13.:49:18.

ride and schedule, he is looking to see what the opposition is doing.

:49:19.:49:21.

Half a second in it on the halfway stage of this race. Ganna riding

:49:22.:49:28.

this in the same manner as he did in the qualifying ride and the first

:49:29.:49:31.

round earlier on, presumably he will be quite comfortable that it is only

:49:32.:49:36.

half a second. At the moment it looks like he is riding a time

:49:37.:49:40.

trial, he does not look focused, his head is moving about. It is just the

:49:41.:49:47.

raw talent at 19 years of age that we are seeing, he has lost another

:49:48.:49:52.

10th of a second so he is not making inroads and lap after lap is

:49:53.:49:56.

slipping away. It will have to be a big finish, maybe he paid for that

:49:57.:50:00.

ride earlier today and has nothing left to give. And it is about being

:50:01.:50:04.

a championship rider, backing up your rights, not just having one

:50:05.:50:10.

good ride but two or three times. Also, still inexperienced at 19

:50:11.:50:14.

years of age. It is not just about your legs but your head as well.

:50:15.:50:18.

Whatever the result, I think we will see a lot more of him. He has lost

:50:19.:50:23.

another 10th of a second. Seven tenths behind now which is a lot of

:50:24.:50:29.

distance, 15 metres or so that they have to turn around in these final

:50:30.:50:34.

kilometres. If he is going to turn this world champ injured final round

:50:35.:50:38.

over the last three laps, he will have to produce a gargantuan effort.

:50:39.:50:42.

How much has Dominic Weinstein got left? The German rider who has led

:50:43.:50:47.

all the way. The Italian is really starting to Moto. Here comes Ganna

:50:48.:50:51.

and the crowd can see it. He has closed it down and suddenly he is in

:50:52.:51:03.

front. In the blinking of an eye, he has turned this world champ injured

:51:04.:51:06.

final on its head. It is a long time since I have seen anything like

:51:07.:51:09.

that. I have to go back to Colin Sturgess's days. The race the gold

:51:10.:51:12.

in the individual pursuit and look at him go, the crowd are loving

:51:13.:51:17.

this. Really getting behind the Italian. He is putting on quite a

:51:18.:51:22.

show to take the gold medal. 4.16.141, in the end he won it by a

:51:23.:51:26.

country mile and who would have thought that three laps ago.

:51:27.:51:32.

Unbelievable finish. Colin Sturgess, the Great Britain rider of the late

:51:33.:51:36.

80s, a formidable opponent. He was the only person I had ever seen who

:51:37.:51:41.

did anything like that. Winding up for those last three laps and it

:51:42.:51:45.

played with the head of all of his competitors, they knew that even if

:51:46.:51:48.

they were in front, he would probably beat them in the sprint. He

:51:49.:51:53.

waited and waited and we wondered if he did not have the composure to

:51:54.:51:57.

lift the world title but just when it really mattered in the closing

:51:58.:52:00.

stages of the race, he kicked like a mule. What a ride from the Italian,

:52:01.:52:10.

Ganna, remember the name. He goes out to sell a break, that is for

:52:11.:52:15.

sure. This is what track cycling needs, you need riders with some

:52:16.:52:21.

character and showmanship. To get the crowd on their feet. The crowd

:52:22.:52:25.

here will obviously be cheering British riders for example but they

:52:26.:52:28.

really got behind this Italian when he went for it near the end. We see

:52:29.:52:35.

a lot of emotion with the medal winners, it is a much more spread

:52:36.:52:38.

around and you often get the seasoned riders who are used to

:52:39.:52:41.

winning and they are very happy but it is not the first for them, they

:52:42.:52:45.

have done it before. But we are seeing teams and riders not used to

:52:46.:52:50.

being first and getting that raw emotion and it is fantastic. What a

:52:51.:52:55.

finish, Ganna saved the best till last, he is the New World individual

:52:56.:53:04.

pursuit champion at 19 years of age. Fantastic celebrations, Ganna is the

:53:05.:53:10.

man, only 19 years old, you have to feel sorry for Dominick Weinstein,

:53:11.:53:15.

he had such a lead early on, if you still have enough energy to lift

:53:16.:53:19.

your bike at the end of that, he could have done more laps. Exactly,

:53:20.:53:23.

you tell him. Amazing, the crowd loved that. A classic cat and mouse

:53:24.:53:30.

event, the way he hung on until making the sprint at the end. That

:53:31.:53:35.

was phenomenal. 4.16 as well, that is the time the women were doing 14

:53:36.:53:39.

pursuit and he did that on his own, incredible. Will we have to look out

:53:40.:53:45.

for Italian track cycling in Rio? They used to be Giants of track

:53:46.:53:51.

cycling in the 90s. He is gutted, now I feel terrible. The Italians

:53:52.:53:56.

used to be a strong nation. They basically put all of their eggs in

:53:57.:54:00.

one basket and focused on the road and now it looks as if they will

:54:01.:54:04.

start investing more back in track cycling. We had an all British race

:54:05.:54:11.

for the bronze, that was ebb and flow, Owain Doull went for it early

:54:12.:54:16.

and finished strong. He has a bit more speed than Andy Tennant but he

:54:17.:54:21.

is Mr consistent as we said before. He just had that edge. He said he

:54:22.:54:26.

had a ride less in his legs from the team pursuit but after what he went

:54:27.:54:29.

through in training and not being on the form he hoped for to take a

:54:30.:54:34.

medal. Owain Doull went for a big spent in the last lap and a half and

:54:35.:54:38.

he was shattered afterwards. They both left it out on the track,

:54:39.:54:43.

classic pursuit, nothing in it at all and they both wanted it. They

:54:44.:54:46.

are team-mates and friends but you can see how much it meant for him to

:54:47.:54:50.

win that bronze medal. We saw a bronze medal in the team visit, the

:54:51.:54:55.

one team member we did not hear from was Laura Trott. Another medal and

:54:56.:54:59.

World Championship medal, that meant a lot to the team? Gray it really

:55:00.:55:04.

did, we were disappointed with yesterday, to come back fighting

:55:05.:55:10.

today and I think it was better than we thought we would do. We rode so

:55:11.:55:14.

well as a team. It is the performance we should have done

:55:15.:55:17.

yesterday that was there today, that is what we put out there, and to

:55:18.:55:21.

prove people wrong little bit in how we rode yesterday and to show that

:55:22.:55:26.

we gel well as a team and that was the performance. Root a national

:55:27.:55:31.

record as well and to back it up again. What did you look at last

:55:32.:55:35.

night to put in a performance like that today? Gray we did not spread

:55:36.:55:42.

the effort even the yesterday. We did, everyone was on different

:55:43.:55:46.

levels, some people can give more than others could and we did not use

:55:47.:55:50.

that to our advantage yesterday. And it fell apart a bit. Today we spread

:55:51.:55:56.

the effort on what people had rather than evenly and that is the way it

:55:57.:56:01.

worked and I guess it paid off. The big effort from you in the middle of

:56:02.:56:06.

the race in both rides seem to make a difference? Definitely, in the

:56:07.:56:10.

first round, I had so much gas and that took it out of other people,

:56:11.:56:15.

you assume everybody is going at the same pace and it is all fine and it

:56:16.:56:18.

is not until you change that you see what is going on. For today's rides,

:56:19.:56:24.

we decided my second turn needed to be longer and keep it nice, flat and

:56:25.:56:29.

smooth and by doing that I guess it worked and everybody could give more

:56:30.:56:34.

on the front. How do the legs feel for the Omnium? I feel good.

:56:35.:56:40.

Yesterday gave me the boost to feel good. To write like that with the

:56:41.:56:45.

girls was fantastic and has given me the momentum I need. Best of luck.

:56:46.:56:51.

Laura Trott giving us that interview while the gold medal race for the

:56:52.:56:54.

men's individual pursuit was going on and there she is up on stage with

:56:55.:56:58.

her team-mates receiving their bronze medals for the women's team

:56:59.:57:04.

pursuit. COMMENTATOR: It was a good point made by Elinor Barker, even

:57:05.:57:08.

though they didn't win the gold medal, which is obviously what they

:57:09.:57:12.

came for, they do leave these championships on a high in a sense

:57:13.:57:16.

they won the race they were in. Psychologically that was a better

:57:17.:57:21.

scenario than it might have been. And they also posted the fastest

:57:22.:57:26.

time. That will be very important, it will send that message in the

:57:27.:57:29.

closing hours of this event for them to say that they are still the

:57:30.:57:33.

quickest here, don't forget that, they will be back in the summer and

:57:34.:57:37.

they will get the qualifying right and be in the final. They recovered

:57:38.:57:39.

very well from that disappointment. We are looking at the world

:57:40.:57:58.

champions. Sarah Hammer on the left-hand side. A seven time world

:57:59.:58:05.

champion now. With her is Kelly Catlin, Chloe Dygert and Jennifer

:58:06.:58:12.

Valente. They were stunningly good, it has to be said. They dished out

:58:13.:58:16.

such a fraction to world champions Australia to make it into the world

:58:17.:58:26.

-- into the Gold Medal right. The USA were Silver Medal list in 2011,

:58:27.:58:31.

the only time they have won a medal in the team pursuit and now the

:58:32.:58:37.

other team to beat as we head to Rio de Janeiro. Sarah Hammer is enjoying

:58:38.:58:42.

them on the jersey more than she is enjoying putting it on herself. She

:58:43.:58:46.

has been the lone campaigner for the USA and now she has a strong team to

:58:47.:58:52.

back up and she is loving it. Sarah Hammer has been one of the great

:58:53.:58:57.

rivals of Laura Trott in the Omnium in recent years. Laura Trott

:58:58.:59:01.

starting her on the campaign tomorrow and she has finished with

:59:02.:59:05.

the silver medal in each of the last three years. She was the world

:59:06.:59:09.

champion in 2012 in Melbourne ahead of the Olympic Games.

:59:10.:59:29.

Great Britain finished any much help position than they started. The

:59:30.:59:36.

qualifying rider fell apart at the seams and they were riding weight on

:59:37.:59:41.

the edge. It is a fine line between success and sporting disaster.

:59:42.:59:47.

Bringing a positive from a very poor ride, they responded well and were

:59:48.:59:51.

very good at getting their heads together and riding very strongly as

:59:52.:59:57.

a team in the second and third ride. They moved up well and came into

:59:58.:00:02.

today with a positive attitude. More importantly, they learned from the

:00:03.:00:07.

experiences. The workload amongst the team was not equal, it was not

:00:08.:00:13.

even. They used to themselves as a single resource. What will Australia

:00:14.:00:18.

be thinking? World champions and record-holder is coming in. I was

:00:19.:00:23.

surprised to see them fall apart and then in the rider for the minor

:00:24.:00:29.

place, you do not see Australia... They were heading for similar

:00:30.:00:36.

break-up. They had caught the opposing team, the Italians, they

:00:37.:00:40.

would've been in the same position again. They will go away from the

:00:41.:00:42.

competition very worried. Sarah Hammer, the most experienced

:00:43.:02:00.

of the quartet by far, the most emotional of the four as the

:02:01.:02:05.

Americans salute the crowd, salute the gold medal winning ride. They

:02:06.:02:09.

are the world champions and the team to beat. It is all to play for as we

:02:10.:02:12.

head to the Olympic Tears on the podium, that is what it

:02:13.:02:22.

is about. That is how much it means. We will move onto the men's Omnium.

:02:23.:02:28.

This is the decathlon for cycling. Six different events. Mark Cavendish

:02:29.:02:33.

hoping to get on the podium. Only a podium place would get into the

:02:34.:02:38.

squad for Rio de Janeiro. He wants an Olympic medal, it is the only

:02:39.:02:43.

thing he does not have worked. -- have got. The Omnium began with the

:02:44.:02:53.

Scratch Race. Mark Cavendish was well-placed was the front of the

:02:54.:02:58.

bunch until a coming together with the rider from Colombia. The man

:02:59.:03:04.

from the Isle of Man struggle to stay upright. He fought back to

:03:05.:03:09.

finish in sixth place. Anger Glenn O'Shea of Australia. Thomas Boudat

:03:10.:03:17.

took the victory. In the second discipline, the Individual Pursuit

:03:18.:03:20.

race Mark Cavendish started strongly and was amongst the fastest time

:03:21.:03:24.

with the early splits. He had to dig deep and he came home in 4.27.4 53.

:03:25.:03:33.

Enough to beat former world champion Glenn O'Shea. He is ninth in the

:03:34.:03:37.

overdose than things after two events. Some big performances are

:03:38.:03:41.

needed to make the podium. Mark Cavendish lines up in the

:03:42.:03:45.

elimination of waste which every couple of laps, the last person over

:03:46.:03:51.

the line gets eliminated. The Scratch Race, the Individual Pursuit

:03:52.:03:54.

race then the elimination race. Tomorrow it is the time trial,

:03:55.:03:59.

flying lap and Points Race. It looks complicated but it is not. You have

:04:00.:04:04.

to be finishing in the first three. He has to be consistent now. He

:04:05.:04:08.

cannot afford to have one bad event. The elimination in DVD could be good

:04:09.:04:15.

for him. -- in theory. It just takes one lots of comp -- concentration

:04:16.:04:24.

and you are not doubt. He is very experienced. It is a specific thing

:04:25.:04:27.

to train for and lots of skills required. People are focusing on

:04:28.:04:33.

that. This is something you have to spend a lot of time preparing for.

:04:34.:04:39.

He is up against it but he has the ability and talent, and experience.

:04:40.:04:44.

He is in 13th place at the stage and it will be difficult. We think of

:04:45.:04:49.

him as a sprinter in the road race terms. Sprinter on the road and

:04:50.:04:54.

sprinter on the track, big gap. It is confusing. The rotary sprinter is

:04:55.:05:00.

an injured and athlete that can sprint at the end of the race. If

:05:01.:05:06.

you got up against Jason Kenny, physically, they are different. He

:05:07.:05:09.

you got up against Jason Kenny, has an amazing burst of speed but he

:05:10.:05:13.

is not a pure sprinter. He is about in Germans. Is this one step too far

:05:14.:05:18.

or you expect something special from him tonight and tomorrow to book his

:05:19.:05:24.

place? You rate off at your peril. He is an exceptional athlete. He has

:05:25.:05:30.

won lots of stages on the road races. He is at the highest level on

:05:31.:05:36.

the track. This is a monumental task ahead. It is amazing to want to do

:05:37.:05:41.

it, to put yourself at risk. Definitely. You only need one

:05:42.:05:45.

trashier and everything is on hold for the rest of the road season. --

:05:46.:05:53.

one crash here. There are so many different things to learn, the

:05:54.:05:56.

Colombo to race and the Keirin, doing six different events, and the

:05:57.:06:03.

skills required, the tactics are different. -- the Keirin. You are

:06:04.:06:10.

delivered to the line by your team-mates on the road. He will be

:06:11.:06:17.

up against it. To explain, what does this involve? The last person gets

:06:18.:06:22.

unlimited every other lap. It is a great event for the crowd but it is

:06:23.:06:28.

very nervous for the riders. One dip in concentration and your race is

:06:29.:06:32.

over. The last back wheel across the line of the rider will be limited --

:06:33.:06:37.

eliminated and you're taken at the race. It is exciting and

:06:38.:06:41.

spectacular. Laura Trott is an expert at this and rides this well.

:06:42.:06:46.

She is tactically astute. Mark Cavendish has to be wide awake, he

:06:47.:06:50.

cannot afford to switch off. How do you know you are the last one? There

:06:51.:06:56.

is a man with a gun exclusion Mark they actually have something on your

:06:57.:07:02.

bike. In the old days, you said you did not know it was you and you

:07:03.:07:06.

tried to stay in the bunch. You have your name on the screen and you have

:07:07.:07:10.

a little red thing that flashes. It is like when you order your food any

:07:11.:07:13.

food court and you get a little thing that buzzes. There is an

:07:14.:07:21.

experienced man any food court along with all of your other

:07:22.:07:23.

qualifications. Let us go to the commentator for the men's Omnium

:07:24.:07:25.

elimination race. COMMENTATOR: It is so critical to

:07:26.:07:39.

get off the mark in this race and get a good position. It is a free

:07:40.:07:44.

for all of the line. When that starts flashing, the little light of

:07:45.:07:49.

Mark Cavendish on his handlebars, come in number 16, your time is up.

:07:50.:07:54.

The last person across the line is eliminated. The box flashes and that

:07:55.:08:01.

is you. Every 30 seconds, they have to spend. If you are at the front to

:08:02.:08:05.

get a steady pace but you have to make the effort to sell. If you are

:08:06.:08:09.

at the back, you are sucked around and have to come a long way around.

:08:10.:08:13.

It is a race for the strategist and I hope this is a good race for Mark

:08:14.:08:19.

Cavendish. The elimination race in the men's Omnium. The elimination

:08:20.:08:23.

race is generally a crowd pleaser. None more so... Quinn Laura Trott is

:08:43.:08:45.

and white of Denmark, the Olympic champion is at the front. Aaron Gate

:08:46.:08:53.

of New Zealand is almost caught out. Next thing over the line we will

:08:54.:08:57.

lose the last rider. Jacob Duehring from the generated states is just

:08:58.:09:01.

off the back. It is 26 metres further to ride around the outside

:09:02.:09:05.

of this track compared to the bottom. That is why the person on

:09:06.:09:11.

the front is quite calm whilst they are sprinting Hell for leather

:09:12.:09:15.

around the outside. Jake Dooling, from California, the first rider to

:09:16.:09:25.

go from --. Two. Mark Cavendish is beautifully positioned in second

:09:26.:09:29.

place. Strategically he is great position. He is monitoring the

:09:30.:09:38.

front. Physically, it is the least stressful to be in second place. The

:09:39.:09:43.

Mexican rider will be the next one to go. Just a rider -- just a

:09:44.:09:49.

reminder, going into this third event, Elia Viviani leads away.

:09:50.:09:56.

Thomas Boudat from France is inferred. Mark Cavendish needs to

:09:57.:10:00.

have a good elimination race. She really does. Elia Viviani was third

:10:01.:10:07.

in both of the previous races and you need to be a jack of all trades.

:10:08.:10:13.

You can not afford a bad race. Mark Cavendish desperately needs a good

:10:14.:10:18.

ride. It looks like the pollen from -- the rider from Poland will be

:10:19.:10:23.

eliminated. Mark Cavendish is in the middle of the pack. Not too bad. It

:10:24.:10:28.

is physically draining to be in that position. You can get away with it

:10:29.:10:32.

for a short while. It is relentless for the riders. Elia Viviani again

:10:33.:10:41.

is at the front. Tim Veldt is coming around the outside, the Dutchman.

:10:42.:10:45.

They are bunching very tightly. The rider from South Korea, Park. He

:10:46.:10:56.

will be the one to go. Mark Cavendish is starting to move up, it

:10:57.:11:01.

is the right time to do it. Just 30 seconds between each of these

:11:02.:11:05.

efforts. It is relentless. Hardly time to catch your breath. The

:11:06.:11:18.

former world champion, Thomas Boudat, comes to the front. Maybe

:11:19.:11:25.

the Belgian rider has went out, the bronze medallist from one year ago.

:11:26.:11:33.

I am surprised by that. Mark Cavendish riding well. Going the

:11:34.:11:44.

wrong way round. Not panicking. It is Lasse Jensen, the Olympic

:11:45.:11:50.

champion from Dunlop -- from Denmark who is out. They come round to the

:11:51.:11:57.

line once again. We thought he had gone last time but now he is. He

:11:58.:12:02.

took the risk of driving down the inside. Then when they start to move

:12:03.:12:06.

around the outside, you have got nowhere to go -- to go. It is high

:12:07.:12:11.

risk. The quickly and down process is kicking in. The young Colombian

:12:12.:12:26.

rider is at the front. Aaron Gate is from New Zealand might go. You can

:12:27.:12:37.

not move backfired. It is time to get physical and force your way into

:12:38.:12:42.

the first two of three riders. Make sure you have got open space. Mark

:12:43.:12:48.

Cavendish is easy to spot with the union flag on his helmet but he is

:12:49.:12:52.

any tight spot. He has pushed his way out. He just gets out of trouble

:12:53.:12:58.

and should do just enough to stay in. The rider from Switzerland drops

:12:59.:13:10.

out. Do not take a believer when you're down at the bottom and in the

:13:11.:13:15.

second position. Nicely done to get out of that hole. He has been boxed

:13:16.:13:16.

in again. Glenn O'Shea from Australia leading

:13:17.:13:30.

the way. The Hong Kong rider on the outside and the rider from Brazil,

:13:31.:13:35.

Montero in a spot of bother but in the end I think it is the Japanese

:13:36.:13:44.

rider who is out. The Japanese road race champion is out. One of the

:13:45.:13:48.

ways you can get through in this is to get somebody underneath and you

:13:49.:13:52.

keep them pinned down. They are your little sacrifice as you like as you

:13:53.:13:56.

come round, Cavendish again, that is exactly what they are trying to do

:13:57.:14:01.

too now, he has found himself in a bit of difficulty but he has pushed

:14:02.:14:06.

out. The ride at the back is very experienced, Cavendish being pushed

:14:07.:14:13.

but the rider who it is out is the rider from Hong Kong. Cavendish just

:14:14.:14:20.

getting himself in front of Vivian on now. Meanwhile, Gaviria sat on

:14:21.:14:30.

the front for lap after lap. Glenn O'Shea taking up the pace. A crash

:14:31.:14:36.

on the inside of the track, the Brazilian rider has hit the deck.

:14:37.:14:45.

Tim felt from the Netherlands has gone. The race will be neutralised

:14:46.:14:55.

as the judges work it out. Overlapping wheels, happens so

:14:56.:14:58.

easily when they are so tightly packed. Speed changing all the time

:14:59.:15:06.

as a concertina over the line. They neutralise the race until they are

:15:07.:15:14.

able to get back in. The adrenaline must go into overdrive when that

:15:15.:15:23.

happens to go through that, some sportsmen, to get back on and carry

:15:24.:15:26.

on racing, it sets an example to other sports which involve all is

:15:27.:15:38.

that I will not mention. Not much of a nights sleep for Tim felt, the

:15:39.:15:45.

race is neutralised but still a lot of strategy being played out as they

:15:46.:15:52.

try to end this mid-July at section with them in the first or second

:15:53.:15:56.

position, constantly rotating and waiting for them to rejoin. Montero,

:15:57.:16:01.

the Brazilian rider went straight to the front, as if to say that it was

:16:02.:16:07.

only a scratch and he is all right. They are back in the race, and Imhof

:16:08.:16:15.

of Team Sky and Italy leads the way. Cavendish on the outside, on the

:16:16.:16:20.

left-hand side as you can see with the Navy and red shorts. We still

:16:21.:16:25.

have the yellow flag up here so the race is still neutralised at the

:16:26.:16:30.

moment. Now they are racing again. Imhof on the front, O'Shea is there

:16:31.:16:36.

as well. Good foot Cavendish acres he is a sprinter type, he has a

:16:37.:16:40.

chance to recover, he was in a good position and benefiting from

:16:41.:16:45.

O'Shea's burst of speed that kept everyone in place, he will benefit

:16:46.:16:50.

from that breather. The race now, Zac Rob being pushed now. Roger Klug

:16:51.:16:59.

trying to stay out of trouble. And while, almost caught out at the bank

:17:00.:17:04.

and the Brazilian rider, Montero is out. I make it about 15 or 16 laps

:17:05.:17:11.

to go now. Before they are down to just two riders. I beg your pardon,

:17:12.:17:23.

it is a team that's to go. O'Shea, Imhof on his wheel. -- Gaviria on

:17:24.:17:32.

his wheel. The Kazakhstan rider. Cavendish is riding this really

:17:33.:17:35.

well, starting to get the feel for it, making sure he is not Oxton and

:17:36.:17:40.

keeping himself on the front foot, he has reacted to everything but

:17:41.:17:44.

also proactively making sure he has space to race. The Kazakhstan rider,

:17:45.:17:49.

second overall in the race going out there. The limpid champion out

:17:50.:18:04.

early, the losing out to. The Russian rider, is at the back. I

:18:05.:18:12.

think Cavendish did benefit from that breather and is riding this

:18:13.:18:21.

extremely well. Looking backwards, keeping himself in good position.

:18:22.:18:26.

The Netherlands staying in by a quarter of a wheel if not less. All

:18:27.:18:32.

of the riders strung out, laying off and taking the others by surprise.

:18:33.:18:37.

It is like a mass sprint every 30 seconds. O'Shea tries to make the

:18:38.:18:42.

move, Roger Klug on the outside. Viviani court at the back at the

:18:43.:18:45.

moment. He has a fair old Turner paste on him and I think it is

:18:46.:18:51.

O'Shea, the Australian. Tim felt watched everybody coming round the

:18:52.:18:56.

outside. He went down the inside and went straight into second position.

:18:57.:19:04.

The 2012 on the champion is out. Cavendish is still there. Gaviria

:19:05.:19:12.

leading the way. Trying to push out. Cavendish not afraid to stand his

:19:13.:19:17.

ground in a bunch like this one. The Dutchman trying to push Cavendish

:19:18.:19:20.

out, his Tour de France experience not having any of that at all. The

:19:21.:19:29.

leader is out. That is a real surprise, third in the last two

:19:30.:19:33.

events, Mark Cavendish having a fantastic ride here. This is what

:19:34.:19:38.

the crowd came to see. Cavendish at the pointy end of the race when it

:19:39.:19:44.

really gets down to business. Gaviria, the young Colombian

:19:45.:19:47.

defending champion. Cavendish just biding his time, has a look round,

:19:48.:19:51.

makes sure he knows exactly where he is, Roger Klug and Thomas Buda

:19:52.:19:57.

behind him. What a clash it was between Roger Klug and the Thomas

:19:58.:20:04.

Buda. Using the other wheels and staying in control. Eight tyres

:20:05.:20:10.

width between them. No elimination, giving a dead heat on that one.

:20:11.:20:14.

Gaviria goes to the front again trying to get a jump on the rest of

:20:15.:20:18.

them. Cavendish sitting on the wheel at the moment. At the back, I think

:20:19.:20:25.

Dutchman will be the one to go, he has to dig deep and he is not going

:20:26.:20:30.

to give up. Pushing hard but I think he will be the man to go, just this

:20:31.:20:36.

time. Interesting strategy by Gaviria to attack in an elimination

:20:37.:20:40.

race. It is a strategy that could work. It was very close on the line.

:20:41.:20:49.

The champion from two years ago has gone. He is puffing and blowing and

:20:50.:20:57.

hanging on and he is about to go but Gaviria leads the way, Cavendish has

:20:58.:21:02.

Roger Klug on his wheel, they neck and neck. Cavendish is nice and

:21:03.:21:11.

safe. The Dutchman has nothing left to give, he can attend to his

:21:12.:21:17.

wounds. Only three left. The big three left in it, Mark Cavendish,

:21:18.:21:22.

Roger Kluger from Germany, the world champion in 2010 and the defending

:21:23.:21:27.

champion, Gaviria makes a move. He goes off the front, Cavendish rolls

:21:28.:21:33.

around behind him. The German rider has had enough. His tank is empty.

:21:34.:21:38.

And Gaviria now leads the way and will come across to take first place

:21:39.:21:45.

over the line. Gaviria comes in first, Mark Cavendish with an

:21:46.:21:51.

excellent ride from him. This was a super ride in the elimination race

:21:52.:21:57.

from Mark Cavendish. Gaviria rolls around the bottom of the track, he

:21:58.:22:01.

knows that Cavendish was quite happy to roll along behind him there. I

:22:02.:22:07.

don't think he had anything left to give, Gaviria could go again and

:22:08.:22:10.

again and showed himself that he will be a strong contender for the

:22:11.:22:15.

points race title here as well. It was Viviani who was the real loser

:22:16.:22:21.

in that. Consistent in the first two rounds but suffering a big blow

:22:22.:22:26.

here. A really good ride from Mark Cavendish, it was excellent but

:22:27.:22:30.

Gaviria, as you say, he timed his effort well to give himself that

:22:31.:22:34.

advantage, well ahead of the final sprint. Cavendish has certainly

:22:35.:22:40.

given the vast majority of the spectators inside the stadium what

:22:41.:22:44.

they came to see tonight. Living in self up to seventh place overall.

:22:45.:22:50.

That is confirmation of the elimination race result. Excellent

:22:51.:22:58.

win for the defending world champion, the experienced for world

:22:59.:23:02.

champion in third. Some big names lost a bit of ground here. Aaron

:23:03.:23:11.

gate, the champion three years ago. And Lasse Norman Hansen, the Olympic

:23:12.:23:15.

champion, in early one to go. Gaviria looking like he might take

:23:16.:23:24.

some beating here. Gaviria and Imhof are perfectly suited riders for this

:23:25.:23:31.

event. Cavendish having some work. It must be such a stressful event to

:23:32.:23:35.

ride, I cannot imagine doing that at this level, it is a carnival event

:23:36.:23:39.

really. That has made its way to the Olympic games. Cavendish was very

:23:40.:23:48.

good, better than I hoped he would be. Strategically he rode it

:23:49.:23:51.

fantastically and moves up to seventh.

:23:52.:24:03.

Very close at the top of the leaderboard, a surprise to see Lasse

:24:04.:24:11.

Norman Hansen down in 10th place and the Belgian rider as well, we

:24:12.:24:14.

thought he might have showed better than he did in the elimination race.

:24:15.:24:20.

He was a big hope for Belgium. Aaron gate, three years ago the world

:24:21.:24:25.

champion, a disappointing ride for him in this event so far. There is

:24:26.:24:32.

the joint leader at the moment. Fernando Gaviria from Colombia, just

:24:33.:24:42.

21 years of age. Well done to him, some real argy-bargy there as well.

:24:43.:24:45.

Cavendish looked very annoyed at the end Connor did he think they had

:24:46.:24:50.

another rotation to go? I think it was questioning whether they fired

:24:51.:24:54.

the gun at the wrong time, normally it comes down to two at the end but

:24:55.:24:58.

with the German capitulating, it looked like the officials thought

:24:59.:25:01.

the gap was so big it was the end of the race. I do not think it would

:25:02.:25:05.

have made a difference, the Colombian looked like a machine but

:25:06.:25:08.

what a race from Mark Cavendish, that is what he needed to get his

:25:09.:25:13.

confidence back and move up the rankings. That is his strength,

:25:14.:25:16.

reading a race and making space for himself. He has been off the track

:25:17.:25:20.

for a while but you could see the brilliance coming back at the end.

:25:21.:25:25.

You can see the desire, can I just make mention of the Netherlands

:25:26.:25:30.

rider, his shirt ripped to bits, shoulder bleeding and he gets up

:25:31.:25:36.

again and finishes fourth. Absolutely, thinking correctly under

:25:37.:25:39.

pressure. It is really difficult, you hit the deck and you have to get

:25:40.:25:42.

back in and get your thoughts straight again and thinking calmly.

:25:43.:25:48.

Your adrenaline is pumping, you will probably know about this more than

:25:49.:25:52.

me but it is really difficult to think straight, he did an incredible

:25:53.:25:57.

job. Let us talk about tomorrow for Mark Cavendish, how much more ground

:25:58.:26:02.

can he make and how much can he make to get to Rio? He cannot afford to

:26:03.:26:06.

have a bad of them now, he has to be consistent, the points race should

:26:07.:26:10.

be a good event, playing into his ability to recover and Sprint. He

:26:11.:26:14.

needs to be consistent and make sure he is not out of the top three or

:26:15.:26:19.

four in each event. Tomorrow we have highlights programme at 1pm that is

:26:20.:26:26.

coming up on BBC One. That will include Laura Trott's gold medal and

:26:27.:26:31.

everything that has happened so far, tomorrow from 7pm, on the red button

:26:32.:26:36.

with the live evening session. You will see the second day of Great

:26:37.:26:39.

Britain against Japan in the Davis Cup as Great Britain continued their

:26:40.:26:45.

defence of that great trophy. It is currently 1-1, the double is coming

:26:46.:26:49.

tomorrow. What a sensational evening it has been off cycling and we will

:26:50.:26:52.

continue on the red button now if you would like to see Jon Dibben in

:26:53.:26:56.

the points race, hopefully see you in a couple of minutes, goodbye.

:26:57.:27:01.

Clare Balding and special guest Sir Chris Hoy present live coverage of day three of the Track Cycling World Championships from London.

After Sir Bradley Wiggins and the GB men's pursuit team took to the track on Thursday night, Friday sees the women's squad go for gold. The women's team led by Laura Trott won pursuit gold in this same velodrome at London 2012 and will be hopeful of repeating the trick tonight.

Standing in the way of Trott and co is a formidable Australian team - the current world record holders. Who will end the night wearing the iconic world champion's rainbow jersey?
