The Netherlands is a nation of

cyclist, they love their bike racing

0:00:340:00:38

here, and this week, Apeldoorn

welcomes the best in the business

0:00:380:00:42

for the track cycling World

Championship, it also sees the

0:00:420:00:44

return of a couple who know a thing

or two about winning.

0:00:440:00:51

Gold for Great Britain. They've

smashed the world record. Laura

0:00:550:01:00

Trott did it in style.

Come back much quicker than I hoped

0:01:000:01:06

for. You want to win every race you

go for.

Jason Kenny has this and he

0:01:060:01:12

wins the gold medal.

Sport is about

performance. If you are fast

0:01:120:01:16

enough... I do everything I can when

it matters.

Laura Trott is Britain

0:01:160:01:27

east most successful female Olympian

of all time. It is is a golden

0:01:270:01:31

hat-trick in Rio, if ha-ha is not

worth a standing ovation, I don't

0:01:310:01:34

know what is.

Their hundred is a boost to the

0:01:340:01:41

squad. We will see them in action

shortly. Here is what is coming up

0:01:410:01:44

as we bring you the best of the

opening three days of competition.

0:01:440:01:48

It is Jason Kenny who will make his

come back first in the men's team

0:01:480:01:52

sprint. Sprint. Katy Marchant goes

for Britain. High hopes of medals in

0:01:520:02:05

the men and the women, Katie

Archibald won a dramatic Omnium

0:02:050:02:11

gold. Gold. And Charlie Tanfield

stunned the cycling world with one

0:02:110:02:16

of the fastest individual pursuit

teems at the track World Cup in

0:02:160:02:19

January.

Can he step up to the World

0:02:190:02:22

Championship podium. Plus plenty

more besides.

0:02:220:02:26

I am pleased to say we have moved

indoors, it has been a bitterly cold

0:02:260:02:30

week here though we have had not of

the snow you have experienced at

0:02:300:02:33

home. Things are heating up in the

velodrome. Chris Boardman and Sir

0:02:330:02:38

Chris Hoy are with me. I will start

with you Chris, hoy. In Apeldoorn

0:02:380:02:42

you were part of that team in 2011

when the words were last here, how

0:02:420:02:50

is it to be back.

It is great to be

back, the memories aren't so good.

0:02:500:02:54

It wasn't great for me personally,

but, yes, it was part of that

0:02:540:02:58

journey towards London, but it is

great to be back here, the home fan,

0:02:580:03:02

they are so passionate about their

sport in general but cycling fan,

0:03:020:03:05

they are up for it. I think the team

is looking good. They have had good

0:03:050:03:11

success, the Dutch, the home team

have a lot to cheer for.

Chris, here

0:03:110:03:15

we are two years from Tokyo. The

World Champions are keeping eye on

0:03:150:03:21

the bigger picture, qualification

doesn't start until later this year,

0:03:210:03:24

how important is it for the British

team to put down a good performance

0:03:240:03:28

here?

It is about Olympic games and

we hear it, it is all about the

0:03:280:03:34

Olympic Games.

Now the squads are so

big, the competition for places is

0:03:340:03:40

fierce, and World Championships is

another opportunity to show that you

0:03:400:03:43

are the person that you should be

backing, going towards that Olympic

0:03:430:03:47

game, so it is important for all

sorts of reasons, not least because

0:03:470:03:51

it is a rainbow jersey.

Which you

picked up several in the course of

0:03:510:03:56

your career. Career. Two years

before Rio, the British men's team

0:03:560:04:01

came home with no medals at all. Do

you think the British team are in a

0:04:010:04:05

better place here?

Time will tell.

Looking at results in the World

0:04:050:04:10

Series and the training times the

team are looking stronger, it is

0:04:100:04:15

hard to tell. The women's endurance

squad are always strong, regardless

0:04:150:04:19

of their time in the four year

cycle, but it seems as though there

0:04:190:04:23

is a number of nations, Australia,

France, Germany and the UK and you

0:04:230:04:28

have Holland, New Zealand, a number

of other individuals, so there is a

0:04:280:04:33

greater spread in terms of to pen

shall medal winners.

It will be a

0:04:330:04:37

fantastic few days of action. To get

under way it is the men's team

0:04:370:04:41

sprint. For Great Britain it

features Jason Kenny stepping out of

0:04:410:04:48

retirement and back on to the

0:04:480:04:49

features Jason Kenny stepping out of

retirement and back on to the track.

0:04:490:04:51

Jason Kenny has it. What a ride? A

gold hat-trick for Jason Kenny.

0:04:510:04:57

Jason Kenny has it. What a ride? A

gold hat-trick for Jason Kenny.

0:04:570:05:00

Here we are, you have obviously

contemplated retirement,

Pretty much

0:05:000:05:05

had enough and I did stop and I did

disappear for a good year,

0:05:050:05:09

fortunately in the year I had off, I

didn't find anything else to do so I

0:05:090:05:13

came back. I decided to come back, I

was going to take my time and build

0:05:130:05:19

businessman up, which is Olympic

qualification, but that has gone out

0:05:190:05:23

the window and here I am.

Did you

miss the training?

Did and I didn't.

0:05:230:05:28

I didn't do anything else so I had

plenty of time. I was training but

0:05:280:05:32

doing other stuff. I was going

mountain biking or walking the dog,

0:05:320:05:37

started enjoying the gym. I thought

I hate the gym generally, I thought

0:05:370:05:41

when I quit I wouldn't be one of

those that go to the gym. I would

0:05:410:05:46

rather be out and about and training

outside. When I took away the

0:05:460:05:50

structures I started enjoying it

again.

Albie's here, in terms of

0:05:500:05:59

trying to be an athlete and a family

at the same time, how difficult is

0:05:590:06:02

that to manage?

Well, on the face of

it it is a disaster, I wouldn't have

0:06:020:06:07

thought you would be able to train,

having not slept, because we do it,

0:06:070:06:12

just me and Laura, it is difficult.

But it is a new thing you have to

0:06:120:06:16

adapt to. Part of being an athlete

is adapting to situation, you always

0:06:160:06:23

seem to be training round something,

that is a new thing we have to

0:06:230:06:26

learn. We are just tired all the

time. You have to kind of accept it.

0:06:260:06:30

All that considered then, what sort

of shape do you feel you are in?

I

0:06:300:06:34

am just trying to get in the team

spirit, to be honest. I don't know.

0:06:340:06:38

We will have to wait and see. The

nationals went well. That was my

0:06:380:06:42

little hit out towards the World

Champions, but we have good numbers

0:06:420:06:46

and strength and depth, which is a

cliche, but it is true at the

0:06:460:06:49

minute.

Are you looking at Tokyo,

are there things you want to achieve

0:06:490:06:55

be before you call it a day?

No, I'm

making it up as I go along.

0:06:550:07:01

Seriously?

Yes. No, obviously we

work in Olympic cycles so I have

0:07:010:07:06

committed to give it a nudge. Tokyo

is the ultimate goal.

Jason Kenny, a

0:07:060:07:12

sixth gold medal.

After qualifying fourth fastest

0:07:120:07:21

Great Britain brought eight Olympic

Golds to their first round line up.

0:07:210:07:24

Great Britain brought eight Olympic

Golds to their first round line up.

0:07:240:07:26

That pace saw them clock 43.434

seconds to beat New Zealand and make

0:07:260:07:31

it into the gold medal ride off with

the second quickest time. We will

0:07:310:07:36

see that shortly. First here is

Simon Brotherton with Chris Boardman

0:07:360:07:39

for the bronze medal race.

You can see he is straining at the

0:07:390:07:48

leash, desperate to get away.

Beautifully timed by both teams

0:07:480:07:52

here. Both of them want it. Come out

of this with a medal. And there is

0:07:520:07:58

nothing in it, we are into the

hundredth of a second at this early

0:07:580:08:01

stage.

Nip and tuck all the way.

France just, just ahead. It is

0:08:010:08:07

again, a 17.6 though.

Less then than

a tenth.

The Russians leading on lap

0:08:070:08:16

two. But the slenderest of margins

it is Russia who lead the way, with

0:08:160:08:21

less than a lap to go. It is France,

then Russia. Who will take it on the

0:08:210:08:26

line. Blink of an eye stuff and it

is the French who get it.

0:08:260:08:34

43.373. There was absolutely nothing

in it from start to finish. You

0:08:340:08:41

could see the last half a lap is

where you really dug deep and made

0:08:410:08:46

that difference.

23 years this event has been held.

0:08:460:08:55

Britain have won it twice. Seven

silvers. 13 medals in all but only

0:08:550:09:00

World Champions twice.

Let us see if they can get the big

0:09:000:09:05

one this time round. Here we go

then. Then. Getting ready for this

0:09:050:09:11

final.

0:09:110:09:21

Great Britain have made a change.

Jack Carlin will lead off as he has

0:09:210:09:28

done, Ryan Owens is coming in to

replace Phil Hynds. Jason Kenny is

0:09:280:09:33

man three. There he is, on his

return to top level competition.

0:09:330:09:38

This is where he is used to being,

in the final, vying for gold. Owens

0:09:380:09:44

has a big responsibility here.

Carlin started well in both rounds

0:09:440:09:50

so far, can he do it one more time?

The Dutch have looked real will I

0:09:500:09:54

strong.

17.3 is what we are looking

for. He has posted two of those so

0:09:540:09:59

far. Dealing with the pressure,

suburbly. Delivering on demand.

0:09:590:10:07

Good clean start from Carlin and the

Dutchman, three laps to decide the

0:10:150:10:22

World Championship in the men's team

sprint.

They look good at the

0:10:220:10:26

moment, they are trailing, that is

for sure but both teams got off

0:10:260:10:30

well.

What a first lap for the

Dutch. Only a tenth of a second in

0:10:300:10:33

it. Great Britain are still

involved. 17.1 for Carlin on that

0:10:330:10:37

first lap. That is stunning stuff.

Owens here, Jason Kenny has a bit to

0:10:370:10:45

do here. Two tenths of a second to

make up. It is Hoogland against

0:10:450:10:49

Kenny, what has Kenny got in his

legs? It is a big ask. Up towards

0:10:490:10:53

the line. Netherlands take it.

42.727. Great Britain finish with

0:10:530:10:59

the silver medal here, in this final

of the opening day of competition.

0:10:590:11:03

I think they have to be pleased with

that. That was one of the fastest

0:11:030:11:08

opening laps I have ever seen by a

British rider. 17 dead by the team

0:11:080:11:15

from the Netherlands. I don't think

I have seen that before. These are

0:11:150:11:19

incredible times. It is the hardest

spot in a team to get right is man

0:11:190:11:25

one, you can build behind that, they

have to be pleased with that ride.

0:11:250:11:29

That was a huge effort, a great team

performance, Jack, you have had a

0:11:290:11:35

busy workload, what a fantastic way

to finish off. That must have been a

0:11:350:11:39

personal best. A remarkable time in

the opening lap.

It wasn't a

0:11:390:11:45

personal best but overall the team

performed well. Obviously,

0:11:450:11:51

disappointed a little, there was no

way we were going to beat that side.

0:11:510:11:55

They were stronger than we have ever

seen them before, so they deserved

0:11:550:11:59

the win for sure.

When you lock at how you have been

0:11:590:12:03

able to step into this man one role,

you must be really really

0:12:030:12:08

encouraged, going forward?

I think

it is hard, because there is such a,

0:12:080:12:13

there is six riders now, so it is

all to play for for the position,

0:12:130:12:17

but at the moment, yes, it is nice

to do the sport and hopefully keep

0:12:170:12:24

it up.

Sensational today. Just to be

part of this team and to come here

0:12:240:12:28

end get into a final like this, it

is a long time since Great Britain

0:12:280:12:32

contested a gold medal in a team

sprint?

Yes, last year we had a good

0:12:320:12:36

run-in the World Cups and our first

couple of races we had gold and we

0:12:360:12:42

went to the words last year with

perhaps unrealistically high

0:12:420:12:47

expectation, when you come here the

competition reaches a new level. You

0:12:470:12:50

saw the Dutch team was unbelievable.

You rarely see anyone go that quick

0:12:500:12:55

outside of the Olympics, so we will

be happy with that performance. We

0:12:550:12:59

would like to have come closer and

channel them, but to finish on our

0:12:590:13:04

fastest time of the day, we can be

proud of that.

Have a quick word

0:13:040:13:09

with man three, great to see you

back at the track Jason, you have

0:13:090:13:13

shown you are as hungry as ever for

it.

Yes, we are well up for that. It

0:13:130:13:19

is a good team. So join with the

team and get stuck in, this is good

0:13:190:13:22

to be art the sharp end.

We don't

often see a men's sprint team

0:13:220:13:30

contesting that, you normally keep

that for Olympic years.

2011 was the

0:13:300:13:35

last one I think. It is nice to be

back at the thick end, nice to use

0:13:350:13:40

all the team member, it was a team

effort to get the final. It was a

0:13:400:13:44

shame, obviously we didn't bring

home the gold but in a way I am glad

0:13:440:13:49

we got through, I think I was the

Weakest Link. I would have been

0:13:490:13:53

getting the blame! Like I say, the

main thing is we are at the sharp

0:13:530:13:58

end, we will push hard and try and

improve next year.

A silver medal

0:13:580:14:01

for Great Britain. A silver medal

for Jason Kenny, what do you make of

0:14:010:14:07

his coming out of retirement

We are

a bit shocked. Jason is probably the

0:14:070:14:10

most shocked.

0:14:100:14:15

He only got backing to it a matter

of weeks ago. He did a little bit of

0:14:150:14:20

Jim, had some fitness, but to come

back in, and also he has changed

0:14:200:14:24

from man two to man three, it is an

outstanding performance and he is

0:14:240:14:29

being a bit hard on himself, saying

he led the team down but I think it

0:14:290:14:34

was an outstanding performance from

all of them.

It is 2005 since Great

0:14:340:14:40

Britain won the gold medal at world

Championships. Last time they were

0:14:400:14:43

in the final was 2009. We tend to

not be very good in this event

0:14:430:14:48

between Olympic years.

We get it

right at the Olympics but while

0:14:480:14:52

championships are still world

Championships. So, to make the gold

0:14:520:14:56

medal final, I think, was a

fantastic result and the guys will

0:14:560:15:00

be happy. There is strength and

depth, and in addition those riders

0:15:000:15:04

we have Callum Skinner in the make

this, it is a great position to be

0:15:040:15:11

in. The Dutch had no weaklings at

all but the British guys will be

0:15:110:15:14

very happy with that.

What you make

of the two young sprinters grafted

0:15:140:15:18

into this team?

Well, Jack Carlin,

he is Scottish, amazing, he is doing

0:15:180:15:27

the very specialised role, the first

lap. And dealing with the pressure,

0:15:270:15:31

too, stepping in at this level,

performing, he never flinches and

0:15:310:15:35

I've been very impressed with him.

Ryan Owens could have made the

0:15:350:15:39

Olympic team, he is the reserve

rider, he went to the pics, posted

0:15:390:15:44

some impressive times in training.

He dealt with the disappointment of

0:15:440:15:51

not being in the Rio team. He has

come here and developed again.

0:15:510:15:57

Philip Hindes, changing to man two,

so many interesting things. It is an

0:15:570:16:02

adaptable and flexible team,

compared to the 2008 and 2016

0:16:020:16:09

Olympics, we any had two established

riders, looking for the established

0:16:090:16:15

bird rider.

So it is nice to have

too many great riders?

It can be a

0:16:150:16:21

problem in certain teams because you

can have internal conflict and you

0:16:210:16:24

can fight so hard to make the team

that by the time you get to the

0:16:240:16:28

Olympics, you've no energy left so

the way they are dealing with it,

0:16:280:16:32

the way the guys operate, they all

get on, it is a nice environment and

0:16:320:16:37

nice atmosphere and I think they

will do very well. Having said that,

0:16:370:16:39

the Dutch look very impressive, the

Kiwis as well. They underperformed

0:16:390:16:45

but they will come back and the

Australians did not ring a team at

0:16:450:16:49

all. There are other potential

dangers in two years' time but, at

0:16:490:16:53

the moment, we are doing very well.

To the full Monty pursuit and a few

0:16:530:17:02

new faces and unfamiliar one leading

the charge.

0:17:020:17:05

The team is looking different, in a

word, but it is looking good. There

0:17:050:17:10

is a couple of older guys, I guess

my generation, that are not here. We

0:17:100:17:15

have for a couple of new faces,

Charlie Tanfield, Ethan Hayter, it

0:17:150:17:22

is never easy to see team-mates not

being with you to go into battle.

0:17:220:17:28

But the team is looking good so it

is exciting.

In qualifying, veteran

0:17:280:17:32

of three Olympics, Clancy was joined

by Kian Emadi, Ethan Hayter and

0:17:320:17:42

Charlie Tanfield. They set the

fastest time of three minutes 55

0:17:420:17:45

points 14 before going on to beat

Germany and claiming a place in

0:17:450:17:49

final. Italy faced Germany for

bronze.

0:17:490:17:52

Away we go. 4,000 metres to decide

who is going to win a medal here.

0:17:550:18:08

Both teams posted a good kilometre

in the opening round so we can

0:18:080:18:16

expect this to be reasonably close

and it is the Germans ahead at the

0:18:160:18:19

moment.

The first rider getting them

up to speed and doing that

0:18:190:18:26

efficiently.

0:18:260:18:31

efficiently.

The Italians coming

back already. They posted the

0:18:320:18:37

fastest first day of the two teams,

and steadily moved away in the

0:18:370:18:44

previous round bout, right now,

Germany are fighting back hard, and

0:18:440:18:49

have the advantage.

0:18:490:18:55

have the advantage.

Lovely on-board

footage, steady progress being made

0:18:550:18:58

from the Germans.

It is a fast first

gay. -- first date, faster than the

0:18:580:19:07

first round.

Look at the first rider

powering for Italy.

I suspect he

0:19:070:19:15

went finish this race. He had the

face and Wadi of a man who will not

0:19:150:19:21

go all the way to the finish, really

driving, and he brought them closer

0:19:210:19:27

but the Germans are holding their

own.

A very strong rider on the

0:19:270:19:32

front for Italy, Ganna, the powerful

youngster.

Decent changes by the

0:19:320:19:42

Italian four. Look at that, dead

level! Nothing in it. Maybe a hair

0:19:420:19:49

in front, the Italians but they have

the momentum taken away from them by

0:19:490:19:56

Germany. So it is nip and tuck.

Every half lap is changing position.

0:19:560:20:02

Italy just nudging in front here, a

little a tenth of a second. This

0:20:020:20:08

will be a brilliant finish between

these two.

Neither of them made any

0:20:080:20:13

significant mistakes, not obvious

what will make the difference

0:20:130:20:16

between them. Shallow change from

Italy, slightly, which could cause

0:20:160:20:20

them a problem later on.

0:20:200:20:28

them a problem later on. That was

Bertazzo. The Germans are down to

0:20:280:20:29

three which could be the end, so

early in this race.

The Italians,

0:20:290:20:37

almost sprinting, and handing over

to Ganna, the former individual

0:20:370:20:43

pursuit champion.

Half a second to

the good now and moving away, the

0:20:430:20:50

Italians looked to have this one

clinched. Still four of them on the

0:20:500:20:54

track.

Italy looking good here to

repeat their bronze medal of last

0:20:540:21:00

year.

Germany giving themselves a

fine account of themselves, they

0:21:000:21:09

have fought hard but the power of

Italy showing through as they go

0:21:090:21:14

down to three with about 40 seconds

of racing remaining.

Down to three

0:21:140:21:18

for the last couple of laps. The

rider that dropped out for Germany

0:21:180:21:25

was Gross, and on the front is Lamon

for the Italians. They are almost up

0:21:250:21:34

to a second, the gap between the two

teams, as they take the bell. 250

0:21:340:21:38

metres to go for Italy, to claim the

bronze medal, already halfway

0:21:380:21:44

through that lap, down the back

straight. A tremendous race for the

0:21:440:21:49

bronze but Italy have prevailed.

Italy take the bronze.

0:21:490:21:57

Italy take the bronze. Germany, in

the end, did not have the legs. So,

0:21:570:22:03

as the Italians celebrate, there are

Great Britain with Ed Clancy, so

0:22:030:22:07

experienced, three times gold

medallist in the Olympics, five-time

0:22:070:22:10

world champion. Kian Emadi, Charlie

Tanfield, and Ethan Hayter.

I wonder

0:22:100:22:18

where they were -- whether they were

going to swap Kian Emadi and put

0:22:180:22:28

down Bigham but they've stuck with

the format.

0:22:280:22:35

The race for gold is under way, and

in a little over four minutes we

0:22:370:22:40

will know whether it will be Great

Britain's they'll Bertazzo whether

0:22:400:22:44

Denmark will be while champions for

the first time since 2009. Edward

0:22:440:22:50

Clancy leads the way for Great

Britain. Not a great start by the

0:22:500:22:55

Danes, very ragged, having to drive

of the wheel. You've got the energy

0:22:550:22:59

to do it now but it is spent, and

your pay a price for it later on.

0:22:590:23:05

So, the British team well drilled

and that discipline may pay

0:23:050:23:09

dividends. They had a slow change

there. A faster start by Denmark,

0:23:090:23:17

half a second up already.

That is a

huge advantage but also a problem

0:23:170:23:25

because you've spent a lot of energy

to gain a three quarters of a second

0:23:250:23:30

advantage in such a short space of

time. Johansen peels off, Madsen

0:23:300:23:38

taking over. Significantly faster

than they posted in the previous

0:23:380:23:45

round, by far the fastest in this

competition. So, have they gone out

0:23:450:23:50

to quickly? Because this is an

amazing ride at this stage of the

0:23:500:23:55

game.

Things are going to get tough

for them or will we see some

0:23:550:24:02

sessional time? It is just over half

a second, the gap, so Great Britain

0:24:020:24:07

are not too far away. And a long way

to go.

And coming back nicely, half

0:24:070:24:16

a second in arrears, holding very

much in touch. Both teams have

0:24:160:24:20

smoothed out, got into their stride.

On the front, Ethan Hayter for Great

0:24:200:24:25

Britain. Charlie Tanfield in behind

him as we take a look at Denmark.

0:24:250:24:33

Great Britain still chipping away.

Not much in it now. Tanfield, if he

0:24:330:24:40

does a longer term, as he has done,

he will be coming through soon so

0:24:400:24:47

when those long terms, round, they

save two tenths of a second every

0:24:470:24:52

time as the Britain's edge closer

and closer to the team of Denmark.

0:24:520:24:58

Denmark down to three. So that

opening kilometre was so fast, they

0:24:580:25:04

did a huge amount of damage.

On the

front, Kian Emadi for Great Britain.

0:25:040:25:09

This is his big, big effort, and he

is out. He drops out so Great

0:25:090:25:18

Britain now down to three.

But they

are in the lead, it is neck and

0:25:180:25:22

neck, the Danes coming back. We will

get the long-term by Charlie here.

0:25:220:25:28

He has been held in reserve for this

one. He is ploughing away, he has

0:25:280:25:32

gained them two tenths. All the

time, moving away, and I think the

0:25:320:25:39

title could be theirs.

Britain at

the bottom of the track, looking

0:25:390:25:44

good, almost three quarters of a

second.

Struggling for the wheel,

0:25:440:25:48

just about getting on after that

mammoth turn.

Big, big turn and it

0:25:480:25:54

is balanced very finally, this

final, it is tenths of a second but

0:25:540:25:59

Great Britain on a knife edge

whether they can hold the pace.

This

0:25:590:26:03

one is going to be about that. It

might be a second but there is still

0:26:030:26:08

time for mistakes and the line edges

closer, just over 20 seconds

0:26:080:26:13

remaining in this event. It'll all

come down to this final lap and

0:26:130:26:17

Great Britain have got an advantage,

there should be enough.

There should

0:26:170:26:22

be one lap that will take them to

the title, and here they come now

0:26:220:26:26

around the banking and into the

finish and gold is going to be Great

0:26:260:26:31

Britain's! World champions for the

first time since 2012! A golden

0:26:310:26:37

ride, Edward Clancy, Charlie

Tanfield, Ethan Hayter and Kian

0:26:370:26:43

Emadi, Britain back on top of the

podium in the men's team pursuit!

We

0:26:430:26:47

saw what they've got to give at the

right time, the only time, in the

0:26:470:26:53

final. The fastest ride by far by

them in the series. What a cool

0:26:530:27:03

smile. The coaches stuck with the

riders, they had confidence in them

0:27:030:27:10

to raise their game and that is what

they did.

Many congratulations,

0:27:100:27:15

you've won a lot of medals but this

one is special. This is a great set

0:27:150:27:18

of guys.

It is, cycling is about the

Olympics and we always say that.

0:27:180:27:29

People forget their world

Championships and this is special

0:27:290:27:31

moment. Thanks the Steventon putting

more emphasis on the world

0:27:310:27:38

Championships and we've pushed hard

for this. The team is different now,

0:27:380:27:43

a few fresh faces in here, and it

came together last minute but it

0:27:430:27:49

still feels pace and it worked out

for the best.

What can you tell us

0:27:490:27:54

about this team, these guys who have

stepped in? Kian Emadi making the

0:27:540:27:59

switch and these two youngsters who

forced their way into the team.

Kian

0:27:590:28:03

Emadi, he has come from the sprint

squad, he has found his way. He is

0:28:030:28:11

going to be a star man. He is making

massive leaps forward at the moment,

0:28:110:28:18

a really exciting prospect for the

future. I said that two years ago.

0:28:180:28:21

The other two, Charlie, I know his

Big Brother. Just a massive engine,

0:28:210:28:28

massive talent. He's come from

outside the system so he's

0:28:280:28:32

relatively unknown but he has been

doing great things and he has been

0:28:320:28:36

spotted on taken on board. Ethan

Hayter, I think he is the next

0:28:360:28:42

Bradley Wiggins, he's so good. He is

arguably the strongest guy in the

0:28:420:28:47

team. How old is he? 19?

High praise

indeed. Kian

0:28:470:28:55

team. How old is he? 19?

High praise

indeed. Kian, great to see you win a

0:28:550:28:57

gold medal having made that switch,

well worth it now, I'm sure you'll

0:28:570:29:01

agree.

Definitely, that is my first

world medal so I can't argue with

0:29:010:29:05

that. It was great to do it with the

team with a great atmosphere,

0:29:050:29:10

everyone has been really pulling for

this result. To get it right on the

0:29:100:29:15

day and to win, it is special.

A

very smooth race from you. Charlie,

0:29:150:29:20

we talked about this being a fairy

tale but what unending!

Hopefully

0:29:200:29:24

not! I mean...

0:29:240:29:32

When you put team KGF together, did

you, did you dream about coming to a

0:29:360:29:42

World Championship, wearing a

rainbow jersey?

No, never crossed my

0:29:420:29:46

mind. The goal was to get to World

Cups and try and compete with the

0:29:460:29:51

best in the world, and next thing I

know, I'm winning a World

0:29:510:29:55

Championship. It is astonishing.

How

did it feel?

I was nervous and

0:29:550:30:01

excited but I am glad we all clicked

together on the day, it all come

0:30:010:30:05

together and I almost lost it on the

last turn. My front wheel almost

0:30:050:30:10

slipped out. I managed to turn it on

the back of them, and I finished it

0:30:100:30:16

off, so really happy.

Very much a

beginning as well as a fairy tale

0:30:160:30:22

end. Ethan to hear Ed Clancy talk

about you as the next Bradley

0:30:220:30:28

Wiggins that was a fantastic way of

introducing you to the global stage?

0:30:280:30:34

It is big boots to live up to. How

happy are you to be a World Champion

0:30:340:30:41

here, with this team and these guys

here?

I am shocked, really, like, I

0:30:410:30:45

didn't know, I didn't think I was

going to get selected originally,

0:30:450:30:50

and then, putting the work in

training, and, managed to pull it on

0:30:500:30:54

today.

And it was a bold call by the

coaches to run with the same four

0:30:540:30:59

through the competition but thaw has

paid off as well.

Yes, I think it is

0:30:590:31:03

unfortunate for some of the other

riders because they are strong

0:31:030:31:06

enough, the way it worked. It meant

we could ride the same and be not

0:31:060:31:11

fatigued.

Enjoy the moment, well

done everybody. Thank you very much.

0:31:110:31:16

So a great performance from the team

pursuit. And it is an all new line

0:31:160:31:21

up, think it just shows the strength

and depth in the men's endurance

0:31:210:31:25

team at the moment.

Raise raise, yes

outstanding,

0:31:250:31:30

team at the moment.

Raise raise, yes

outstanding, to see -- yes

0:31:300:31:31

outstanding, they can only go

quicker than this, and great to see

0:31:310:31:35

Ed back in team. He must be the most

successful team pursuit rider of all

0:31:350:31:41

times and to see him come back with

this renewed enthusiasm.

0:31:410:31:50

this renewed enthusiasm. To see him

win rainbow jersey and the new

0:31:520:31:55

riders, which, it is so exciting, I

think to see what can happen in the

0:31:550:31:59

next two years and of course, a

number of others in the mix that are

0:31:590:32:02

part of the squad.

Charlie of course

coming through, not involve had the

0:32:020:32:08

programme, he just landed into this

team, through some fantastic

0:32:080:32:12

performances obviously at the

nationals and going on the World

0:32:120:32:15

Cups as well. How do Great Britain

and UK Sport miss athletes like

0:32:150:32:20

this?

I don't think it is they miss

them, it is a great opportunity to

0:32:200:32:24

show anybody in the UK, anybody in

Britain if they want to be part of

0:32:240:32:29

the set up, you can prove your

worth. Even more so in a team event

0:32:290:32:33

that usually seems like a closed

shop, to be able to come in with

0:32:330:32:38

outstanding performances

individually and team wise and

0:32:380:32:42

inject fresh thinking, team KGF,

they have had a different approach

0:32:420:32:47

to the team pursuit and thought

about it. That can only be good for

0:32:470:32:51

the coach, the British coaches to

look a what they are doing and bring

0:32:510:32:54

ideas in too. On every level, it is

very exciting. I think the Aussies

0:32:540:33:00

who aren't here will watch that race

and it will give them food for

0:33:000:33:03

thought come Tokyo.

As you say

significantly Australia are not

0:33:030:33:07

here, they are concentrating on

Commonwealth Games in the Gold

0:33:070:33:10

Coast, but Great Britain can only

race against who is here.

Yes,

0:33:100:33:14

absolutely. Australia aside, look at

the performance, the time, the fact

0:33:140:33:21

the air pressure was high, a 3.53 in

those conditions any team in the

0:33:210:33:26

world would struggle toll beat that.

It is a very exciting performance.

0:33:260:33:29

We are going to concentrate on team

sprinting again and the women's

0:33:290:33:32

event and for Great Britain, a new

line up.

0:33:320:33:35

I am really excited about the team

sprint. I spent the World Cup season

0:33:350:33:42

riding with Sophie but Lauren

produced the fastest lap. We have

0:33:420:33:46

been training together, which has

been nice.

It is very exciting to be

0:33:460:33:52

given the opportunity, but, also

nerve-wracking at the thought of

0:33:520:33:56

like, having to perform I guess. We

have never raced together before, we

0:33:560:34:01

have never done a full team sprint

if training. I have only recently

0:34:010:34:06

started training with her, so that

is going to be very new, we are

0:34:060:34:10

getting used to each other quickly,

I don't think that will be an issue.

0:34:100:34:14

I think going to the worlds and

riding a team sprint, I do have high

0:34:140:34:19

hopes for us, ultimately Tokyo is

the goal and this is just a step in

0:34:190:34:22

the direction to make sure we do a

women's team sprint in Tokyo.

0:34:220:34:30

Personal best for Lauren bait wasn't

enough to see them in the medal race

0:34:300:34:34

as they finished in sixth place.

Here is how the medals were won.

0:34:340:34:40

Ss Shmeleva and Song on lap one.

Two laps to get a medal.

0:34:400:34:47

Ss Shmeleva and Song on lap one.

Two laps to get a medal.

0:34:470:34:55

Two laps to get a medal. Remember in

the last round, it is happening

0:34:550:34:57

again. It is a tough one.

She is not

going to get close. He is not going

0:34:570:35:02

to get maximum advantage here at

all.

It is Russia who have the clear

0:35:020:35:08

advantage over China, but Zhong is a

strong finishers.

She is coming

0:35:080:35:15

back, will it be quick enough? Two

tenths of a second in half a lap.

0:35:150:35:24

That was a great ride by the Russia.

She is so strong. It wasn't the

0:35:240:35:28

medal of the day we are looking for

when they came here, but for them it

0:35:280:35:33

was about gold and becoming World

Champions again, but at least they

0:35:330:35:37

have salvaged something and the

Russian duo are on the podium. They

0:35:370:35:40

have beaten China for the bronze

medal.

0:35:400:35:43

So the Netherlands here for the

final are going with the pairing

0:35:430:35:46

that rode in the first round,

0:35:460:35:55

that rode in the first round, no the

qualifiers so Lamberink. They are up

0:35:550:35:59

against the vastly experienced

German pairing. Or Welte and Vogel.

0:35:590:36:07

Remember the Netherlands have a gold

already on this opening day of

0:36:070:36:09

competition.

0:36:090:36:19

There is Miriam Welte.

Welte and Vogel were the World

0:36:190:36:26

Champions in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

Can they do it again for the fourth

0:36:260:36:30

time together?

No stranger to the

pressure, are they?

0:36:300:36:41

Two laps to decide the World

Champions in the women's team

0:36:460:36:50

sprint. Miriam Welte and Lamberink

on lap one.

0:36:500:36:57

Welte very much in control. It is

close. But the German pair are

0:36:570:37:04

riding beautifully. Both of them

are, there is still nothing in it.

0:37:040:37:09

Germany have got the advantage here.

It is with Vogel as she comes round

0:37:090:37:13

the banking for the last time. About

to come into the finishing straight.

0:37:130:37:18

Vogel takes it. 32.605 is the

winning time. And Germany are the

0:37:180:37:26

World Champions again and for the

fourth time in their careers Vogel

0:37:260:37:31

and Welte are on top of the world in

the women's team sprint. For the

0:37:310:37:37

first time since 2014, it was an

excellent effort from the

0:37:370:37:41

Netherlands but Germany would not be

denied the gold medal. It is the

0:37:410:37:45

most experienced pairing of them all

and they have prevailed once more.

0:37:450:37:53

The spirited crowd politely

applauding, while cursing under

0:37:530:37:56

their breath! There was nothing you

could do about that. The experience

0:37:560:37:59

there I think shone through. The

change over was superb.

0:37:590:38:11

Just thought the Dutch rider might

have been closing. Almost had to

0:38:120:38:17

hesitate on the change over. Could

have laid off a lot further.

You

0:38:170:38:21

have to come up with something

stunning to beat Vogel over a lap at

0:38:210:38:25

the end o a

0:38:250:38:26

stunning to beat Vogel over a lap at

the end o a race. Germany proving

0:38:260:38:28

they are the team to beat. Very

strong when it comes to women's

0:38:280:38:32

sprinting. It is the experience and

individually they are strong. Vogel

0:38:320:38:40

multiple sprint champion and Welte,

a fantastic rider, it is hard to see

0:38:400:38:42

how you can beat them. They have so

much experience, the technical

0:38:420:38:47

about, but it is the same face, it

is Russia, China, and Holland, top

0:38:470:38:53

four, British team sixth place, you

know, it is encouraging, obviously

0:38:530:38:58

they want to win medals but to have

a personal best from Lauren in the

0:38:580:39:02

first lap and Katie getting back to

her best in lap two, it, there is

0:39:020:39:07

room for improvement. It is solid.

It has been a problem for Great

0:39:070:39:11

Britain, finding the next Victoria

Pendleton, since she stepped away

0:39:110:39:16

from the track nobody has filled her

shoes. We have had Jessica Varnish,

0:39:160:39:21

Becky James forced to retire. Is it

a cause for concern in the British

0:39:210:39:25

team?

It is not cause for concern,

to fill the shoes of Vicky and then

0:39:250:39:30

Becky is a big challenge.

Outstanding performance at the

0:39:300:39:36

Olympic game, and I think looking at

riders like Victoria barn, --

0:39:360:39:44

Barnes, she has been 18 Monday

months in rehab but she is just get

0:39:440:39:49

back on the track. It is great to

see her back in fold. There is is a

0:39:490:39:54

lot of young talent coming through.

Sophie Kate well. She is working

0:39:540:39:58

hard, so there is, there is a lot of

talent

0:39:580:40:01

there working hard but it takes

time. I think, you know, there is

0:40:010:40:04

enough time, two years, you know, we

could take it round, it is an area

0:40:040:40:10

they are focussing on.

From

sprinting back to pursuiting now, we

0:40:100:40:13

heard from one half of the Kenny

household, now we will hear from the

0:40:130:40:18

other, Laura Kenny has been talking

to Alistair.

0:40:180:40:21

Laura, how does that feel to be

back?

Incredible. Actually. I am

0:40:210:40:26

really enjoying it. You know I have

come back much quicker than I hoped

0:40:260:40:30

for I suppose, but I an seeing it

from a different viewpoint. I am

0:40:300:40:34

loving every minute of it. I really

am.

What do you mean by that?

All of

0:40:340:40:40

a sudden I am mum. Mum comes before

anything, and it was nerve like that

0:40:400:40:44

before, I got so wrapped up into

every pedal rev. It get intense,

0:40:440:40:50

stressful, especially before games

and that is what I stepped away

0:40:500:40:52

from, and now I have come back into

it, so much more relaxed than I ever

0:40:520:40:56

was. And I don't know whether that

is why I've come back going quicker

0:40:560:41:01

than I was before, I am enjoying

this sort of come back as everyone

0:41:010:41:05

is calling it.

In terms of the speed

of your return, where people round

0:41:050:41:10

you saying, take it easy?

No, not

really. I did a team pursuit

0:41:100:41:16

session, randomly, I was planning on

laying off the effort and my coach

0:41:160:41:19

said, do one, get in an effort. I

was no, that is not for me. And Paul

0:41:190:41:25

was if not now, when? I thought this

is is a good point. I finished and I

0:41:250:41:29

thought I'm not that far away. That

was it, came in for the team

0:41:290:41:33

sessions and found myself, you know,

getting round with them.

In terms of

0:41:330:41:37

coming back, have you spoken to

anyone else about that?

Yes, so I

0:41:370:41:42

spoke to Jessica Ennis-Hill, quite a

lot, when I was pregnant I met with

0:41:420:41:47

up her to a a conversation about how

she got back in, how long it took.

0:41:470:41:52

She has been a great support for me.

She has been on the end of the

0:41:520:41:55

phone. I can ask her any question,

my body has been through something

0:41:550:42:00

it has never been through before.

There is lots of feelings I have

0:42:000:42:03

never had. She is not a bike rider

but she is a power based athlete, he

0:42:030:42:08

is in the gym. She does everything

edo but on a running track, so she

0:42:080:42:11

has been great, to have there and

ask any questions, that I feel like

0:42:110:42:16

I want to ask, and she has been open

and honest with me.

0:42:160:42:20

I want to ask, and she has been open

and honest with me.

They are the

0:42:200:42:23

World

0:42:230:42:23

and honest with me.

They are the

World Champions. It takes you back

0:42:230:42:27

to the scene of your first ever

World Championships, what your

0:42:270:42:30

initial memories of that?

It was

incredible. I couldn't believe it

0:42:300:42:34

happened. I couldn't believe I had

gone to my first World Championships

0:42:340:42:38

as a senior and won. I remember

screaming with Dan ay and Wendy, it

0:42:380:42:43

was incredible. The start of it,

that was the start of my career,

0:42:430:42:47

then I was almost carefree, and I

just got on a bike, nobody knew who

0:42:470:42:50

I was and I just rode, and I loved

every minute of it, whereas now

0:42:500:42:56

people expect me to step on the

start line and win almost. Hopefully

0:42:560:42:58

now becoming a mum that side of me

will come back, because it is

0:42:580:43:04

intense and it gets stressful. I am

probably the most nervous Olympian

0:43:040:43:08

you will meet. Hopefully I will get

back to that 18-year-old me who got

0:43:080:43:14

on and thought I'll just ride round.

Do you remember thinking I want more

0:43:140:43:18

of this?

I knew I wanted to be

Olympic champion, that was the start

0:43:180:43:21

of it for me, that year, I hadn't

won a team pursuit. I didn't really

0:43:210:43:26

expect to be in the team. After that

you make the team, you win, so like

0:43:260:43:29

this is what I want now, I want to

be Olympic champion and I can see

0:43:290:43:34

2012 in sight, but before that I

hadn't thought about 2012. I didn't

0:43:340:43:38

think it was going to be an option.

This team has set new levels and

0:43:380:43:42

times and do you feel you will have

to do that to win that next Olympic

0:43:420:43:45

Gold as well?

For sure, I think that

happens in any Olympic cycle. You

0:43:450:43:50

will have to go better, the world

doesn't stand still. We have a

0:43:500:43:54

meeting, and you have to kind of

predict your time, because that is

0:43:540:43:57

what your training is based round,

and it is always, like it shocks

0:43:570:44:01

you, there is no way I can do that

time, there is no way that we going

0:44:010:44:05

to be able to pedal that fast and do

that time. You get pretty near it in

0:44:050:44:10

that World Championships then you

see it happen at the Olympics so you

0:44:100:44:14

are always striving to be better, to

get that incredible time they set

0:44:140:44:18

four years out.

0:44:180:44:23

Going into these championships, what

would you like to achieve?

In an

0:44:230:44:27

ideal world, you want to win every

race you go for so first one I want

0:44:270:44:31

be in the format, so get on the

start line, and see what time that

0:44:310:44:37

line-up can do but ideally be in the

gold and silver medal ride off.

0:44:370:44:43

They made it to that race but first,

the race for bronze.

0:44:430:44:49

COMMENTATOR: The race for bronze

years on.

0:44:490:44:56

years on. Italy and Canada.

Good,

tidy start by them. Two gaps there.

0:44:570:45:08

Italy have the slenderest of

advantages.

Canada got themselves

0:45:130:45:20

into formation quicker. The Italians

at Chile going for it. -- actually

0:45:200:45:27

going forward. Both teams

technically looking good in these

0:45:270:45:32

early changes. Nice change by Italy

just off-camera, smoothly off the

0:45:320:45:37

wheel.

0:45:370:45:46

wheel. Smoothly into place on the

back.

Balsamo for Italy.

The lead

0:45:460:45:54

swinging back and forward. Slow

change by Italy. Everything counts

0:45:540:46:01

when it is this close, down to

hundredths of a second. The opening

0:46:010:46:09

kilometre 1.8, in line with other

rides.

0:46:090:46:16

rides.

Still, just roughly a tenth

of a second in it between the two

0:46:160:46:20

sets of riders in this nip and tuck

for bronze.

0:46:200:46:30

for bronze. We have seen some close

racing. Both teams look well

0:46:300:46:38

composed. They headed towards the

halfway point. This race has been

0:46:380:46:45

extraordinarily close, who will

start to open up a potentially

0:46:450:46:50

decisive advantage?

It is Canada

now, with a half seconds lead.

0:46:500:47:01

That's the biggest difference we

have seen plus far, still back and

0:47:010:47:05

forwards, though.

All to play for.

Italy refusing to give ground. Still

0:47:050:47:12

three tenths of a second.

Italy's

changes getting more ropey. That was

0:47:120:47:18

very shallow onto the back which

indicates that I haven't got the

0:47:180:47:24

confidence to get the height. Zero

point

0:47:240:47:35

point to -- zero point to the

second. Leicester one tenth of a

0:47:350:47:39

second as they head towards the last

minute of racing.

What a final this

0:47:390:47:43

is proving to be in the race for

bronze between these two, it could

0:47:430:47:46

go either way the touring Italy and

Canada. It could hardly be closer!

0:47:460:47:54

Hundredths of a second, the blink of

an eye between these two.

Canada

0:47:540:47:58

down to three now.

Roorda drops out.

They are down to a core group of

0:47:580:48:07

three and still less than a tenth of

a second between these two, it will

0:48:070:48:11

be a sprint for the line going down

to the final lap.

Italy have their

0:48:110:48:16

nose in the front with the numbers

and they have the advantage. Canada,

0:48:160:48:22

another poor change which will cost

them.

Quite a lot it will cost them.

0:48:220:48:27

Balsamo surges forward, Italy with

three riders still going and it is

0:48:270:48:35

over one second, the advantage for

the Italians.

Both teams are

0:48:350:48:39

starting to feel it in the last half

a minute of racing, it will come

0:48:390:48:44

down to who makes the mistake. The

Italians know they are in the lead,

0:48:440:48:49

nearly two seconds.

The next time

they come over the line, they will

0:48:490:48:53

hear the bell and what a welcome

sound that is, too. Italy pedalling

0:48:530:48:58

towards the bronze medal in the

women's team pursuit. It has been a

0:48:580:49:03

successful world Championships for

the Italians, for both men and women

0:49:030:49:07

in this event, and Italy take the

bronze medal, just as the men did

0:49:070:49:11

earlier on.

0:49:110:49:16

earlier on.

Well earned by Italy.

0:49:190:49:27

And the riders for the final being

introduced to the crowd as the

0:49:270:49:31

Italians celebrate their place on

the podium and we turn our attention

0:49:310:49:36

to the race for gold.

0:49:360:49:42

to the race for gold. Archibald,

Kenny, Barker and Nelson. And the

0:49:420:49:50

world champions, Valente and the

rest for the United States. Good

0:49:500:49:59

thing start from the pair of them,

Valente and Katie Archibald for

0:49:590:50:03

Great Britain. Valente up and

running quickly, Archibald has Laura

0:50:030:50:11

Kenny behind her.

Valente is a links

and a bit into her team-mates. The

0:50:110:50:18

Americans still getting get

together.

Over half a second up on

0:50:180:50:24

Great Britain. Remember, if you are

with our coverage before, the

0:50:240:50:28

Americans have a very good start.

Yes, in every round. Three quarters

0:50:280:50:33

of a second but they will pay a

price in the last few seconds of

0:50:330:50:37

racing but they are so strong, it is

going to be a lock to claw back and

0:50:370:50:42

the British team still losing

ground.

Will it be a winning return

0:50:420:50:45

for Laura Kenny to the track?

Four-time Olympic champion. Early

0:50:450:50:51

advantage very much with the United

States, almost one second up.

The

0:50:510:50:55

British team having last turn the

tide and starting to make some

0:50:550:51:00

inroads here. They are making

inroads quickly so it is about

0:51:000:51:04

momentum in this game. It isn't even

down to times. The British team are

0:51:040:51:11

travelling considerably faster and

you can see how close to each other

0:51:110:51:14

they are. 0.3 of a second so they've

turned around three quarters of a

0:51:140:51:18

second.

Strong riding from

father-mac for Great Britain. Great

0:51:180:51:25

Britain completely turning the

momentum of this final round.

A

0:51:250:51:31

little bit of a gap being left here

at the back with the Brits. The

0:51:310:51:37

Americans have got a better

formation.

Look at that, dead level,

0:51:370:51:41

the pair of them!

Dead level when

you've been three quarters of a

0:51:410:51:45

second up means you're losing ground

and the tables have turned because

0:51:450:51:49

the British four have their nose in

front.

Their nose is in front and

0:51:490:51:55

Archibald leading the way. Laura

Kenny riding behind her, and behind

0:51:550:52:01

her, Alan Barker, Nelson on the

back. The United States have gone

0:52:010:52:04

down to three.

That is a significant

loss. There are gaps between the

0:52:040:52:10

wheels as well. They were fast in

the previous round but they were

0:52:100:52:16

ragged, maybe they are paying the

price for the false start.

The

0:52:160:52:21

advantages over one seconds for

Great Britain and it is looking very

0:52:210:52:24

good at this moment in time for a

British point of view.

Certainly,

0:52:240:52:31

the Americans have started to pull

back, they are coming back quite

0:52:310:52:35

quickly.

They tend to come back

quick play when Dygert is in the

0:52:350:52:43

front.

She needs to do the most

terms. They are back in front. It is

0:52:430:52:52

not all over.

So, the United States

take the lead. There is no room for

0:52:520:52:56

error, they are down to three. It is

an advantage of just over three

0:52:560:53:01

tenths of a second and what looked

very good for Great Britain a couple

0:53:010:53:04

of laps to go looks like they need

to dig deep. To try to turn this

0:53:040:53:10

final round. Just one kilometre to

go, Britain look as if they may go

0:53:100:53:16

down to three any time soon. Katie

Archibald powering along the front

0:53:160:53:22

and it is Emily Nelson losing

contact with the others. And they

0:53:220:53:25

are zero point three down, now the

British team are fighting back, but

0:53:250:53:31

it is very late in the day now. What

a desperate fight this will be in

0:53:310:53:37

the closing stages of this race.

Archibald peels off and Laura Kenny

0:53:370:53:42

digs in. The gap is still half a

second, two laps to go. It is a big

0:53:420:53:48

ask and it is hard to see them doing

it, the way Dygert is at the front.

0:53:480:53:54

Eleanor Baka peels off. Archibald is

there, they take the bell, the

0:53:540:54:00

United States leading the way and

the United States are heading for

0:54:000:54:03

the gold medal. This is a superb

ride by the defending champions, led

0:54:030:54:09

by Dygert who will bring them home

and there's nothing Great Britain

0:54:090:54:12

can do about it. The United States

claimed the gold medal and Great

0:54:120:54:18

Britain finish with the silver and

Laura Kenny's return to elite

0:54:180:54:23

competition sees her on the podium

at the world Championships,

0:54:230:54:27

alongside Barker, Nelson and

Dickinson. Great Britain looked as

0:54:270:54:34

if they were in the driving seat and

heading for a gold. Suddenly, in the

0:54:340:54:41

space of 250 metres, it changed

completely.

0:54:410:54:43

Congratulations, a silver medal,

back here where it began for you.

0:54:480:54:51

You would have loved to have taken a

gold home but given how quickly

0:54:510:54:55

you've come back in the sport, how

pleased I you?

Personally, I'm very

0:54:550:55:00

pleased because I never expected to

be back at a world championship so

0:55:000:55:03

soon. I really enjoy being back with

the girls. We would have loved to

0:55:030:55:11

come away with the gold-medal. Any

race we enter, we want to win but he

0:55:110:55:18

can't help but feel disappointed but

the Americans rode unbelievably

0:55:180:55:22

again so hats off to them.

How you

feeling in yourself?

Shattered, I'm

0:55:220:55:28

normally in bed with the little one

at this time. It is like interval

0:55:280:55:33

training at night-time! Honestly,

I've loved every minute back at the

0:55:330:55:39

track.

You and Jason, a couple of

silver medals to take back. A

0:55:390:55:43

tremendous achievement.

Thanks,

yeah, and to add to his collection,

0:55:430:55:48

I guess! I haven't done and awful

lot of training so I can be

0:55:480:55:54

personally very pleased with this

event.

And it has shown we have a

0:55:540:55:57

lot of strength and depth in the

team, being able to mix it up a bit.

0:55:570:56:02

Definitely. Eleanor Dickinson was

part of our second round and it

0:56:020:56:08

shows how many numbers we've got,

and how British cycling have worked

0:56:080:56:11

on the injuries throw gram. -- the

endurance programme.

What a

0:56:110:56:21

performance, and what a wafer Laura

Kenny to mark

0:56:210:56:28

Kenny to mark her comeback.

The

focus is on Laura from the media.

0:56:280:56:32

She could not have done any more.

Great for her, great for the team,

0:56:320:56:37

great to see the riders coming

through, Emily Nelson an Eleanor

0:56:370:56:41

Dickinson, stepping up, performing

as a team. It wasn't just about

0:56:410:56:46

being against the Americans, Dygert

was head and shoulders above the

0:56:460:56:50

rest. Whenever she was at the front,

she was so strong, she was gaining a

0:56:500:56:54

significant amount on the GB quartet

so very tough to beat but there is

0:56:540:56:58

room for improvement.

She is an

incredible athlete who has stepped

0:56:580:57:03

in the shoes of Sarah Hammer very

well.

It is a shame, isn't it? Sarah

0:57:030:57:07

was so strong for so many years, and

great battle between law and Sarah

0:57:070:57:13

in the individual and on them but in

the team pursuit she was always the

0:57:130:57:17

strong anchor leg. Dygert has filled

those shoes and more and I've never

0:57:170:57:22

seen a world final in Batman where

the team gone ahead, fallen behind

0:57:220:57:28

and come back with such a strong

kick at the end. It was very

0:57:280:57:32

impressive to see.

Katie Archibald

in great form, Elinor Barker in

0:57:320:57:38

great form but Laura Kenny coming

back, six months after having a

0:57:380:57:42

baby. You've got any baby at home,

two little ones, you know how that

0:57:420:57:46

disrupts your sleep patterns. The

actual achievement of coming back,

0:57:460:57:52

being this competitive so soon is so

remarkable.

It is truly remarkable

0:57:520:57:56

and isn't just about giving birth

and having all the difficulties of

0:57:560:58:00

lack of sleep and change in

lifestyle. It is for Jason as well,

0:58:000:58:04

two of them competing at the highest

level, doing so well, I take my hat

0:58:040:58:09

off to them because it is a

remarkable achievement. There is

0:58:090:58:14

always one person that gets the main

attention and it is important it is

0:58:140:58:18

not just one person but it is a

whole squad of riders and it is

0:58:180:58:23

great to see them all receiving

vessel the medals but Laura receives

0:58:230:58:26

a huge pat on the back with that

formance.

She lifts that team,

0:58:260:58:30

brings such a boost and she is such

a popular character. Loads more to

0:58:300:58:34

come. We have the men's individual

pursuit. Charlie Tanfield recorded

0:58:340:58:42

one of the fastest times ever, he

will be eyeing a place on the podium

0:58:420:58:49

in the individual pursuit.

0:58:490:58:55

in the individual pursuit. Can Vogel

add another medal? A British pair

0:58:560:59:05

take part in the Kieron. Charlie

Tanfield, we heard from him earlier

0:59:050:59:12

after his success in the team

pursuit. He is part of the hamlet

0:59:120:59:16

her cycling team. So, too, is Daniel

Bigham and here is their story.

0:59:160:59:23

Wonderful story, they've set

themselves up, one of a student, one

0:59:230:59:28

of them taking off work to get good.

They are handing it to national

0:59:280:59:33

teams globally.

0:59:330:59:41

We beat the goodbye boys and

obviously we go out for a few beers,

0:59:410:59:46

and that is where we started talking

about, we have done six training

0:59:460:59:50

sessions here, where can we be in

like, a whole winter's preparation

0:59:500:59:55

for a team pursuit? I don't think

there was an aim to get to a major

0:59:551:00:00

Championship, the aim was to be as

good as we could, a group of lads on

1:00:001:00:04

the same team and see what we could

achieve. Then we were like let's try

1:00:041:00:09

and win a World Cup. Then we did

that.

Up towards the line.

These new

1:00:091:00:15

goals keep presenting themselves and

seeing where we get to, we want to

1:00:151:00:18

be as good as we can be.

It has been

interesting and exciting to watch

1:00:181:00:25

team KJF come into the men's

endurance arena if you like, and

1:00:251:00:29

they have thought very carefully

about what they want to do, and how

1:00:291:00:33

they think they can get the best out

of THEs. How has the training gone,

1:00:331:00:38

blending into the British team?

Yes,

doing stuff differently I think

1:00:381:00:43

their ethos is different to how we

have approach our training, the

1:00:431:00:49

sessions are specific and

controlsed, whereas we train as hard

1:00:491:00:53

as we feel we can.

What is your

expecting of yourself, what do you

1:00:531:00:57

want to achieve here?

Looking to

three and get o the podium. I am not

1:00:571:01:02

going to hedge round it. Winning the

World Championships would be

1:01:021:01:08

amazing.

It is exciting to see them

put the pressure on the riders that

1:01:081:01:14

are established riders in the

programme and great I think,

1:01:141:01:18

hopefully for others to see if you

can get out there, you race your

1:01:181:01:22

bike, focus on what you can do, the

boar is -- door is always open.

If

1:01:221:01:27

you think back and think I would

never have got here, everything has

1:01:271:01:32

landed in place and done the right

things at the right time and it has

1:01:321:01:35

come together. A bit of a surprise.

It comes to realisation when I was

1:01:351:01:44

driving down here, then I thought,

it's happening I'm going to the

1:01:441:01:47

world champs.

A time of 4.2647 for Dan put him in

1:01:471:01:57

ninth place while Charlie Tanfield

clocked 4.14025 and was pushed out

1:01:571:02:00

of the gold medal ride off in the

very last heat. Let us see how he

1:02:001:02:04

gets on in the race for bronze.

Place for bronze a

1:02:041:02:10

gets on in the race for bronze.

Place for bronze a few seconds away.

1:02:101:02:12

Both away cleanly then, the race for

bronze here in the men's individual

1:02:121:02:17

pursuit, fan tan -- Charlie Tanfield

of Great Britain against the

1:02:171:02:21

Russian. On paper, Tanfield with a

slight advantage going in but there

1:02:211:02:26

might not be much between these two.

He seems to have gone off fast yet

1:02:261:02:31

again. One sixth, posted in the

previous round, he is half a second

1:02:311:02:38

up nearly in the opening lap. That

very very tucked position. Hands

1:02:381:02:45

clasped together. A lot of time

spent in the wind tunnel.

He has a

1:02:451:02:51

distinctive position.

They put more

time into this than anybody else,

1:02:511:02:56

probe more than the hagsal team. For

of them living together in a house

1:02:561:03:00

in Derby. Begged borrowed everything

they needed to compete against the

1:03:001:03:05

best in the world, now finding

themselves with the British team.

1:03:051:03:09

One second ahead, almost. As they

approach this opening kilometre. Now

1:03:091:03:15

lets see if he has toned down that

start a bit.

1:03:151:03:18

No. Is the answer.

He is going at it again. Another 1.6

1:03:181:03:28

opener.

Tanfield trying to grab this

race by the scruff of the neck early

1:03:281:03:32

on, and then he will try to hang on

to it. 1.4 seconds the advantage

1:03:321:03:38

over the Russian.

He has gone out

quicker though, considerably

1:03:381:03:43

quicker, a short 1 8 for him. So he

certainly raised his game here,

1:03:431:03:52

Tanfield died off considerably. The

Russian didn't. Despite the 1.5

1:03:521:03:57

second gap, it could go all the way

to line. Let's see.

1:03:571:04:03

So Tanfield with the advantage as

they head in the direction of the

1:04:031:04:06

half way mark of this race.

I want

to know how he can see where she

1:04:061:04:14

going, his head is so low, he must

be riding using the force I think.

1:04:141:04:22

I SatNav maybe. There was a strain

on the eyes. Well, it is now stemmed

1:04:221:04:32

at 1.6 seconds and the Russian is

starting to nibble away at that

1:04:321:04:37

lead. Has he got enough distance to

do it? He hasn't got the buffer he

1:04:371:04:44

had in the previous round, Tanfield,

so he has got a fight on his hands

1:04:441:04:48

here.

Half a dozen laps to go.

Let's see the gap, it is coming

1:04:481:04:53

down.

It is coming down.

The Russian is travelling faster

1:04:531:05:00

now. Erso slightly but he is just

eating away at that lead.

1:05:001:05:08

This could go all too, all the way

to wire and Charlie Tanfield has got

1:05:081:05:13

a battle op his hands here. It is

still almost nine tenths of a second

1:05:131:05:17

but as you can see he has taken

another bite out of it. The Russian

1:05:171:05:21

is closing in on Charlie Tanfield,

the longer this race goes on, and

1:05:211:05:26

there are still four laps to go.

Less than half a second in it. The

1:05:261:05:30

Russian taking a moment to glass

across the track. Realises he has a

1:05:301:05:34

chance at this now. He has upped

hissedhis game. Tanfield slower than

1:05:341:05:39

his previous round.

And the pendulum

is swinging the Russian's way here n

1:05:391:05:44

the closing kilometre of this

individual pursuit bronze medal

1:05:441:05:48

match up. The Russian looks stronger

and stronger the longer the race

1:05:481:05:53

goes on and Charlie Tanfield, as you

can see, is losing ground, hand over

1:05:531:05:58

fist here, with just under two laps

to go.

He is suffering badly. He has

1:05:581:06:06

given it his all his but he won't

come away with a medal.

That

1:06:061:06:12

individual medal is going to slip

through his fingers against the

1:06:121:06:16

Russian, the Russian power round the

track. It is a painful last lap for

1:06:161:06:22

Charlie Tanfield of Great Britain,

and the Russian now hurtling over

1:06:221:06:25

the line, to claim the bronze medal,

and Charlie Tanfield having led for

1:06:251:06:30

the first half of the race, was

beaten in the second half.

1:06:301:06:39

beaten in the second half. The

Russian's time.

A full second faster

1:06:391:06:44

for the Russian than this morning's

ride. He will be pleased with that,

1:06:441:06:48

coming away with a medal. Barely

looks out of breath here. Charlie

1:06:481:06:53

Tanfield went slower in the ride,

really up against it. Had a

1:06:531:07:00

fantastic winter season but perhaps

not on his best form here. Still,

1:07:001:07:07

4.15, not to be sneezed at.

1:07:071:07:10

The men's individual pursuit final,

and what a final it could be.le Vera

1:07:151:07:20

the fastest in the first round --

Olveira. Ganna, he knows what it is

1:07:201:07:26

like to win the world title he did

it two years ago, can he do it

1:07:261:07:32

again? Both cyclists race on the

road as well as the track, bringing

1:07:321:07:36

fine form here to Apeldoorn in the

Netherlands. It is Oliveira who has

1:07:361:07:42

made the quicker start. Almost half

a second up already, on the time of

1:07:421:07:46

Ganna from Italy.

He did that in the

previous round, a 16.5 opener, in

1:07:461:07:54

line with his final time.

Ganna 17.2

in the opening kilometre. A powerful

1:07:541:08:02

looking rider. 6.4.

-- 6'4". And almost a second now,

1:08:021:08:08

the advantage.

Yes, storming ahead

now.

1:08:081:08:12

Is this what you would expect to see

given the way they have ridden...

1:08:121:08:18

Probably a bigger advantage, there

wasn't this big a gap over the

1:08:181:08:21

opening kilometre from the previous

ride, but it is Ganna that has gone

1:08:211:08:26

slower, actually. Oliveira has gone

slightly slower as well.

This is

1:08:261:08:32

part of Championship performing. It

is as much about being backing your

1:08:321:08:37

ride as your pure speed on a one off

effort.

You have to be in the race

1:08:371:08:42

but don't give it all up until you

get to the final.

This could be a

1:08:421:08:51

strategic by Ganna.

He is making

ground now.

He finishing strongly

1:08:511:08:54

against Charlie Tanfield in the

first round, Ganna, last lap or two

1:08:541:08:58

was really quick, he was losing to

fan field -- Tanfield all the way.

1:08:581:09:02

He is working hard as they approach

the mid-point, but he is holding his

1:09:021:09:07

own, that is for sure.

Chipping away

a bit.

Very slight frame, hasn't he.

1:09:071:09:15

The rider from Portugal. Tucked

down, rolling the shoulders in,

1:09:151:09:20

bringing theel does -- elbows

together. Head between the shoulder

1:09:201:09:24

blades.

The advantage just being

whittled away. Ganna getting into

1:09:241:09:31

his stride here now U

Of the two I

would say he is working harder. But

1:09:311:09:38

there is not much racing left to do.

Less than two kilometres. Ganna gets

1:09:381:09:45

closer and closer.

1:09:451:09:51

closer and closer. Oliveira looks

setted in his position. We have seen

1:09:521:09:55

it before, the American team pursuit

looked ragged but the raw force was

1:09:551:10:00

there to do the job. 0. Of a second.

And closing -- 0.3.

Ganna is very

1:10:001:10:07

much within touching distance of the

gold medal, Oliveira has the

1:10:071:10:13

advantage, but not by much. 3.08 at

the three k mark was the time posted

1:10:131:10:21

by Oliveira previously. He won't get

near that now. So a much slower

1:10:211:10:26

ride. Ganna is in the lead. It is a

big finish. Ganna barely if the

1:10:261:10:31

lead. He just about gets his nose if

front. We are in the last four laps

1:10:311:10:37

of this race now.

It is about

momentum, the pace he is carrying in

1:10:371:10:43

and he is moving away.

Ganna got

faster and faster in that first

1:10:431:10:49

round race, and now he can sense

that the world title could be his

1:10:491:10:52

again. He rides for Emirates,s on

the road at the top level of

1:10:521:10:57

international road racing, and now,

he is at the top again on the track,

1:10:571:11:01

having returned to the track as part

of the Italian team pursuit squad.

1:11:011:11:05

He already had a bronze medal here

and Oliveira is under pressure, he

1:11:051:11:10

is struggling to find an answer, his

legs are hurting and at the bell he

1:11:101:11:16

is 1.3 secs down. Nothing is going

to stop Ganna from Italy. The

1:11:161:11:21

21-year-old is about to become the

world individual pursuit champion

1:11:211:11:24

for the second time in his career.

It is gold for Italy, gold for Ganna

1:11:241:11:30

and Oliveira who looked the man to

beat going into the final, led at

1:11:301:11:34

the start, led for the first half of

race but in the end didn't quite

1:11:341:11:39

have the speed and staying power to

match the Italian. It is Ganna's

1:11:391:11:43

title.

Fir I -- fairly pleased.

Ganna who

1:11:431:11:51

finished with the silver medal last

year, back on top of the world once

1:11:511:11:56

again.

1:11:561:11:57

year, back on top of the world once

again.

1:11:571:11:58

I can see from the look on your face

how disappointed you are with that.

1:11:581:12:03

To go so close to a second podium

and not to be able to deliver.

Yeah.

1:12:031:12:12

Well, I guess I learned a lot from

the experience.

1:12:121:12:20

the experience. Tactically, let

myself down. Yeah. That's the way it

1:12:201:12:25

go, isn't it. Fair play, he was

strong, he put on a great show. Well

1:12:251:12:30

done mate.

As you can see you are in

among special company in the last

1:12:301:12:35

four of the World Championships.

I

know, to be, one of the top four

1:12:351:12:40

people in the world, it is nothing

to be disappointed about. Everybody

1:12:401:12:46

likes to win, don't they.

But

looking at this whole expense of

1:12:461:12:50

coming to the World Championship,

your first time, setting foot on the

1:12:501:12:55

biggest stage, you must be really

proud of what you have been able to

1:12:551:12:58

do?

Definitely, yeah. I feel as if I

have come so far, you know, in such

1:12:581:13:03

a short space of time, to be able to

mix it up with the top guys in the

1:13:031:13:08

world is unbelievable. Hopefully I

will have another shot at it next

1:13:081:13:13

year and you know, get my pacing

better and add a few things here and

1:13:131:13:18

there, so I will be here next year.

I think we will see a lot more of

1:13:181:13:23

you Charlie. So disappointing for

Charlie Tanfield. Esaw you having a

1:13:231:13:27

chat with him later Chris, he was

disappointed but what a remarkable

1:13:271:13:31

way he stepped on to world stage

here he goes home with a gold medal.

1:13:311:13:36

Not many go to the World

Championships and come back with a

1:13:361:13:43

rainbow jersey, I am, you could be

forgiven for thinking anything is a

1:13:431:13:47

bonus, I am delighted I am here, but

he wasn't, he was so eager to win a

1:13:471:13:53

medal, and, I am glad to see he is

that disappointed. It is a good

1:13:531:13:56

thing.

There is a lot more to come

from Charlie. This is very much a

1:13:561:14:00

learning process for him.

Absolutely. He is fresh, fresh blood

1:14:001:14:04

into the team pursuit team, the way

he and his team-mates approach the

1:14:041:14:07

team pursuit and their individual

training is a breath of fresh air.

1:14:071:14:11

It is channelling the British coach,

it is inspiring his team-mates here,

1:14:111:14:16

you know, it has been a fantastic

aDirks he has been a fantastic

1:14:161:14:22

addition to the team as has Dan.

Dan

finishing in ninth. He is excited

1:14:221:14:29

about stepping up to the stage in

Brisbane for the Commonwealth Games.

1:14:291:14:35

They have that chance to build on

the momentum. A big gap and loads of

1:14:351:14:38

time to reflect when you can lose

momentum. They have a huge

1:14:381:14:43

Championships coming up after the

worlds, they have the European

1:14:431:14:47

Championships in Glasgow, so there

are stepping stones towards next

1:14:471:14:51

season, so they are excited. You can

see, it is a lovely part of your

1:14:511:14:56

career, a steep learning curve,

every time you get on the track you

1:14:561:15:00

make improvements.

We are going to

get to the medal races for the

1:15:001:15:05

sprint. Can Christina Vogel add

another medal to

1:15:051:15:12

sprint. Can Christina Vogel add

another medal to her impressive

1:15:121:15:12

haul. This is an interesting one.

Vogel is on form.

1:15:121:15:21

These two have sailed through this

competition untroubled, on rough old

1:15:211:15:29

-- not ruffled.

They have. We have

seen such close racing throughout

1:15:291:15:34

this Championships so far that these

two, there has been definite

1:15:341:15:37

daylight between then and the

competition.

1:15:371:15:45

competition. -- between them and the

competition.

The sprint final, best

1:15:451:15:49

of three. Vogel... Defending her

title. They've got to keep going

1:15:491:16:00

here at at least walking pace.

The

rider having to take the lead on the

1:16:001:16:07

first spot. Then they can choose to

stand still for 32nds maximum,

1:16:071:16:14

doesn't happen that much these days.

A tactic much more important when

1:16:141:16:27

the racing was on bigger tracks,

trying to force your opponent to go

1:16:271:16:31

to the front. The straights much

bigger on the out door velodromes.

1:16:311:16:42

We don't use those for the world

Championships. It would be great if

1:16:421:16:45

they were used because it would

change the competition, things would

1:16:451:16:48

have to be done differently. You'd

have different tactics, different

1:16:481:16:52

equipment, possibly.

Would be pretty

cold out there now, wouldn't it? I

1:16:521:16:58

think we will stay here.

Vogel on

the front for Germany, as they come

1:16:581:17:04

through now to take the bell. Morton

having a little look on the outside.

1:17:041:17:11

Morton still with ground to make up.

Vogel 100% effort from her now, flat

1:17:111:17:18

out sprint. Has Morton got the

speed? No, it is 1-0 to Germany and

1:17:181:17:24

the defending champion, your speed

carried her home.

She controlled has

1:17:241:17:30

been very well, just didn't let her

opponent get a look in. Well, I

1:17:301:17:37

think Vogel showed that experience

and tactical ability controls the

1:17:371:17:44

race. The tables are turned now so

can tempt two keep the advantage she

1:17:441:17:53

has offered raw? In this instance,

it is an advantage. Vogel rather

1:17:531:18:03

than laying up, pressuring her

opponent by going close on the

1:18:031:18:08

wheel. Don't know what I'm going to

do, don't know if I'm going to try

1:18:081:18:13

to pass you, if at all, the speed

slowly rises. Two laps to go, coming

1:18:131:18:22

to the home straight now.

She is

very assertive tactically, Vogel.

1:18:221:18:29

She has fantastic form.

1:18:291:18:37

She has fantastic form. Forcing

Morton to pick up the pace, still

1:18:371:18:42

not committing.

Now they are

starting to commit an Vogel goes to

1:18:421:18:46

the front. Morton fighting back,

doing everything she can do not

1:18:461:18:55

concede ground and Morton is proving

to be a formidable opponent. That

1:18:551:19:02

was a very strong sprint from

Morton. She had to get it right that

1:19:021:19:07

time. Vogel put herself in a great

position but Morton said, no, you

1:19:071:19:11

won't come past me this time. It

will go to a third and deciding

1:19:111:19:16

cried in the women's sprint final.

-- deciding ride.

I wasn't expecting

1:19:161:19:24

that one. I thought Vogel was going

to get it. I don't know if that was

1:19:241:19:30

a tactical mistake. She didn't

manage to get over the top. I think

1:19:301:19:38

it is the first time in this

competition we haven't seen straight

1:19:381:19:44

rides since we got down to the match

sprinting. So, this could be it now.

1:19:441:19:53

This is it, the race for the

gold-medal, three laps to decide the

1:19:531:19:57

outcome.

1:19:571:20:04

Is Vogel going to become world

champion for the 11th time in her

1:20:041:20:08

career?

1:20:081:20:15

Morton looking to add the world

crown to her Commonwealth title she

1:20:161:20:20

won in Glasgow in 2014.

1:20:201:20:27

The tension builds, the prospect

what is to come in the next minute

1:20:321:20:36

or so. 1.5 laps to go.

Vogel is in

the position she prefers. She can

1:20:361:20:47

control the race. Tell you what,

it'll be hard.

The race is on with

1:20:471:20:52

200 metres to go. Everything out

there on the track. Morton trying to

1:20:521:20:59

draw level, Vogel holding her off,

and Morton cannot manage it! Vogel

1:20:591:21:07

wins the world title again! She was

pushed all the way by that second

1:21:071:21:10

ride by Morton but Vogel dark deep

in the decisive race and she is the

1:21:101:21:17

champion again for the fourth time

in her career. She wins the world

1:21:171:21:23

sprint title, she successfully

defends her crown won in Hong Kong

1:21:231:21:28

12 months ago, and that is the 11th

world

1:21:281:21:32

12 months ago, and that is the 11th

world title of Vogel's career.

1:21:321:21:34

Many congratulations. We could see

celebrating. You've won 11 world

1:21:341:21:39

championship titles but this one

seems to mean just as much as all

1:21:391:21:42

the others.

I'm sorry, my legs...

They are burning away. It is always

1:21:421:21:50

fantastic. For me, from year to

year, the pressure is getting higher

1:21:501:21:56

and higher. Normally, it is easy to

win but it isn't it is getting

1:21:561:22:02

harder and harder. Everyone wants to

see me fall and it is hard to fly.

1:22:021:22:11

It is incredible.

What a sprinter, Chris, you enjoyed

1:22:111:22:18

that, didn't you?

What a classic

encounter, Morton should have won

1:22:181:22:22

it, she has the horsepower, she was

quicker in the time trial but you

1:22:221:22:27

see how canny Vogel is, she exposes

the weaknesses of her opponent. The

1:22:271:22:33

biggest thing Morton didn't do is

create space, a target to run at,

1:22:331:22:37

she got too close to Vogel and when

you are right on the back of the

1:22:371:22:41

wheels, it is hard to come off so a

well earned victory for Vogel.

1:22:411:22:47

You've got to start looking at Vogel

and comparing her to the greats, her

1:22:471:22:52

longevity and her ability to keep

winning gold medals.

11 gold world

1:22:521:22:58

titles, you could see how much more

fun she was having last year. Today,

1:22:581:23:02

you could see for the first time,

she was a lot more hesitant, there

1:23:021:23:06

was not the same confidence but when

it came to the crunch, she had the

1:23:061:23:11

psychological edge on all of her

opponents. Morton will be kicking

1:23:111:23:15

herself. She will analyse the

videos. They will realise there were

1:23:151:23:21

mistakes. If she had played to her

strengths, she could have beaten

1:23:211:23:24

Vogel.

The first rainbow jersey of

these championships, the women's

1:23:241:23:31

scratch race in Hong Kong. Elinor

Barker took silver for GP and here

1:23:311:23:36

it is Katie Archibald flying the

flag. Let's take a look at how she

1:23:361:23:40

got on.

1:23:401:23:44

Archibald is trying to chase these

two at the front. Seven to go this

1:23:441:23:48

is the big effort.

I think she will

do it. She is being chased.

The two

1:23:481:24:00

leaders may have some company in the

not too distant future with six laps

1:24:001:24:05

to go. It is a long time in a race

like this. Here they come. Archibald

1:24:051:24:15

is flying. She is having to dig in

and chase to close the gap.

1:24:151:24:28

and chase to close the gap. Katie

Archibald is still chasing, and I

1:24:281:24:29

think she is finding it tough.

1:24:291:24:36

think she is finding it tough.

She

hasn't given up, one kilometre to

1:24:361:24:39

go.

I tell you who else is not too

far behind, the Belgian, and she has

1:24:391:24:45

company as well.

1:24:451:24:54

company as well. I think they're

starting to close in. Archibald is

1:24:541:25:00

in second place, about to be joined

now by the Polish rider. She joins

1:25:001:25:09

her, this is looking good.

I think

she will take it. She has done a

1:25:091:25:21

great job, Morton but it is too far

to go.

Here is Wild for the

1:25:211:25:28

Netherlands with one lap to go. Is

the first gold medal going to go to

1:25:281:25:32

the Dutch? The hosts of the world

Championships, she knows it's now

1:25:321:25:38

and she comes into the finishing

straight and ten two is world

1:25:381:25:47

champion again just as she was in

2015, she takes the world title,

1:25:471:25:53

what a ride from Wild. She timed her

effort superbly and what a stop to

1:25:531:25:58

these championships for the hosts.

It took some courage because

1:25:581:26:02

everybody had to change their game

plan.

1:26:021:26:09

plan. We are all thinking about the

sprint, it's seven laps to go and it

1:26:091:26:14

was Archibald who sparked it off.

Wild spotted the danger, and hats

1:26:141:26:20

off to her, she committed to the

move and had the legs to

1:26:201:26:24

off to her, she committed to the

move and had the legs to see it to

1:26:241:26:25

the end.

What a great way to start

these championships for the

1:26:251:26:28

Netherlands.

Yes, and if it can

finish like this, it is very great.

1:26:281:26:34

The people, they pushed us, it is

incredible how much energy you get

1:26:341:26:38

from the people.

When the race got

going properly with 12 laps to go,

1:26:381:26:46

the Irish rider weight, Katie

Archibald, you knew you had to go.

I

1:26:461:26:53

was surprised she wasn't directly on

the wheel. Yes, this was incredible.

1:26:531:27:00

My coach was saying go, go, go. I

thought it was crazy.

Wild, a hugely

1:27:001:27:11

popular winner here. Now the men's

keirin final, who could forget Wang

1:27:111:27:19

of Malaysia winning it last year?

Keep didn't make it into this year's

1:27:191:27:24

final but Jack Carlin dead. -- did.

1:27:241:27:31

Keep didn't make it into this year's

final but Jack Carlin dead. -- did.

1:27:311:27:33

They start at 30 K an hour, they

cannot pass the front we love the

1:27:331:27:38

by, they must start in the order

they draw. They can swap places.

1:27:381:27:43

They must stay within ten metres of

the bike.

The Colombian in the blue

1:27:431:27:53

was second in Hong Kong. Wang, not

able to defend his title. We will

1:27:531:28:04

have a new champion, come what may.

1:28:041:28:07

For .5 laps to go. Another lap and a

half...

1:28:121:28:22

Jack Carlin laying off a bit. Going

to start to accelerate early. Half a

1:28:321:28:38

lap before the motorbike comes off,

he's on the outside.

Has to time it

1:28:381:28:43

well, cannot overlap the motorbike.

Beautifully done, straight into pole

1:28:431:28:49

position. He will try to take this

one from the front.

He is at the

1:28:491:28:54

front of the race.

1:28:541:29:03

front of the race. Just on the

inside, there is Carlin. Boxed in at

1:29:031:29:06

the moment, fighting his way out of

it with riders going around the

1:29:061:29:12

outside. Here they come now, the

sprint being led... Now the

1:29:121:29:23

Colombian! Great Britain have work

to do! Over the line, Puertas, world

1:29:231:29:36

champion this time and look at what

it means to him.

1:29:361:29:43

Puerta take it on the line.

Carlin

was out accelerated. Found himself

1:29:461:29:54

trapped down the bottom. Nowhere for

him to go. And he just rode that one

1:29:541:30:00

out, in the wheels. No room to race

at all.

1:30:001:30:07

The Japanese rider wins the silver.

There is confirmation of the result.

1:30:091:30:16

To the women's Omnium and Great

Britain are the defending champions

1:30:161:30:20

in this one after Katie Archibald's

dramatic victory in Hong Kong. Mixed

1:30:201:30:24

form means the ride goes to Elinor

Barker. In the first event the

1:30:241:30:28

scratch race a crash involving a

rider and official meant racing was

1:30:281:30:32

significantly delayed. Eventually

the last 15 laps were rerun and

1:30:321:30:36

Barker finished in seventh position

behind home favourite Welte. In the

1:30:361:30:44

second discipline the first rider

across the line gets a point. Barker

1:30:441:30:48

showed her strength here, gaining

seven points to win this and leave

1:30:481:30:51

her in second overall.

The ehimration was only just under

1:30:511:30:55

way when a huge crash took out a

huge group of riders, including

1:30:551:31:03

Elinor Barker. Some riders were

unable to continue Barker picked

1:31:031:31:07

herself up and got back on as the

race restarted after a lengthy

1:31:071:31:11

delay.

Barker trying to make sure he

1:31:111:31:20

doesn't get caught out. This could

be tricky here for Elinor Barker,

1:31:201:31:26

she is in a big sprint. She is in

trouble. She is gone. She is out.

1:31:261:31:31

Lost out in the sprint there. The

Japanese rider had that burst of

1:31:311:31:34

pace at the end of that lap.

That is quite a blow.

We have high

1:31:341:31:46

quality five left with the Dane, the

Belgian, the darker blue, the

1:31:461:31:54

Italian and the American on the

outside. The 23-year-old from San

1:31:541:31:57

Diego.

Multiple World Champion in the team

1:31:571:32:06

pursuit.

1:32:061:32:12

pursuit.

Cop I can was the last one

over the line. -- Kopeki has got a

1:32:121:32:18

power metre on her handlebar, up

covered up. You are not supposed to

1:32:181:32:22

be able to do that. Actually get

feedback during the race. Good spot.

1:32:221:32:27

Eagle eye.

1:32:271:32:35

Eagle eye. Valente in the rear

position of the four. Kirsten looks

1:32:351:32:44

strong, she can dominate this.

Valente looks comfortable with her

1:32:441:32:51

situation. She looks like she has

more to give.

We will find out in 25

1:32:511:32:55

seconds. We are getting to the

business end of the race. We are

1:32:551:33:01

used to seeing Laura Kenny involved

in this race, but not this time.

1:33:011:33:05

Not come peel Peting in the Omnium,

the Olympic champion. -- competing.

1:33:051:33:09

. Valente is in third. This is a

sprint lap. Lap. Wield difficult to

1:33:091:33:20

get past. Balsamo will finish third

in this event. We are left with

1:33:201:33:29

Valente. Home crowd are loving it. A

sizeable crowd tonight, here in

1:33:291:33:35

Apeldoorn, we are about an hour from

Amsterdam, here comes the big final

1:33:351:33:41

sprint. The final sprint. Sprint.

Wield is going to lead it out. And

1:33:411:33:46

the sprint is on now, half way down

the back straight. Valente stuck to

1:33:461:33:53

her wheel. Has she got the strength

only do past, there is your answer.

1:33:531:33:58

She wins the event and continues to

show sparkling form here at these

1:33:581:34:03

World Championships.

So after a brave performance in the

1:34:031:34:11

elimination race backer is in third

position overall. Still in with a

1:34:111:34:15

chance a medal.

The first two in the overall

1:34:151:34:21

standings side by side Willed

followed by the yellow jersey.

1:34:211:34:28

Willed has some work to do now.

She would be happy for the points to

1:34:281:34:33

go up the road. That would suit her

just find. Sure enough the attacking

1:34:331:34:39

starts.

It is Splintered completely

the race, none of them are overall

1:34:391:34:45

threats.

If she wants to ride she

can't on the wheel. This isn't just

1:34:451:34:53

the person she has to beat, she has

to take points.

1:34:531:34:59

So on the attack the Irish rider

with Kopecky the length of a

1:34:591:35:09

straight is the advantage.

So

Kopecky... No, we only have the one

1:35:091:35:15

sprint left, so no, it is not going

to work for these two.

1:35:151:35:23

The screen is saying ten, the board

is the centre is saying eight to go.

1:35:261:35:30

Seven this time.

We are at the

business end. Kopecky at the front.

1:35:301:35:38

The focus is on those behind. That

is where the medals will be decided.

1:35:381:35:48

It won't affect the standings in any

big way. Wild leads. The Dane

1:35:481:35:58

second, Buchanan third on 106.

Balsamo is just behind.

There is six

1:35:581:36:05

and four off for the, on offer for

the peloton.

They will be Hoovering

1:36:051:36:13

up the lion's share of the points at

the end. End. Wild will be ready to

1:36:131:36:18

buy them a beer after this event.

The wind up starts now. Five laps to

1:36:181:36:21

go.

1:36:211:36:28

go.

Valente trying to get on the

wheel of Wild.

That is Balsamo, she

1:36:281:36:35

is just off the podium. Three points

off. Buchanan from New Zealand, a

1:36:351:36:40

bit further back, the traditional

all black colours. Colours. Wild is

1:36:401:36:46

staying over the top. She makes sure

she has her boxed in.

Coming round

1:36:461:36:51

the offside.

Wild just managed to

get round her there. That was a bit

1:36:511:36:59

tight up at the back.

Keeping her

pinned on the inside. A very clever

1:36:591:37:07

piece of riding but Wild.

Elinor

Barker on the front at the moment.

1:37:071:37:10

Now they are just beginning to wind

it up. There will be two laps to go

1:37:101:37:15

over the line next time. Lydia at

the front with Kopecky. It will be a

1:37:151:37:21

long sprint here and Elinor Barker

is right at the front, at the

1:37:211:37:24

moment. Everybody lined up behind

her.

1:37:241:37:29

Kopecky has taken the bell but the

big sprint is on now. And Elinor

1:37:291:37:34

Barker is on the front of it for

Great Britain. Barker leads the way.

1:37:341:37:37

Way. Wild is on her shoulder now.

Wild is about to go sweeping past.

1:37:371:37:45

And on her wheel as well is Balsamo

from Italy and Valente. Here comes

1:37:451:37:53

Wild up and over the line. She

celebrates as do the vast majority

1:37:531:37:58

of the people inside the stadium

here, in Apeldoorn, a second world

1:37:581:38:03

title of the week for Kerr stem

Wild.

1:38:031:38:08

-- Kirsten. Of all the riders in the

race she is the one with the staying

1:38:081:38:13

power, she is the one with the

experience, having previously

1:38:131:38:18

finished second and twice third, she

is the World Champion in the Omnium.

1:38:181:38:23

Third World title of her career.

What a fight back by Buchanan, for

1:38:231:38:30

two lap gains to get herself on the

podium. I shows how weighted towards

1:38:301:38:34

this final event it is now.

And what a week for Kirsten Wild.

1:38:341:38:41

She takes the world title ahead of

the Dane, Buchanan in third place.

1:38:411:38:51

Kopecky took that final sprint. Wild

third. Great ride for Buchanan to

1:38:511:39:00

bring herself back on to the podium,

and Balsamo finishing fourth, Elinor

1:39:001:39:07

Barker was in sixth place.

Just a few points from getting a

1:39:071:39:11

medal.

1:39:111:39:13

Just a few points from getting a

medal.

1:39:131:39:16

What a fantastic victory, a second

rainbow jersey here, just how much

1:39:161:39:19

did you enjoy that here this

evening?

Yes it is fantastic to race

1:39:191:39:25

in front of all these people. I feel

amazing.

First and foremost,

1:39:251:39:30

Eleanor, how are you feeling after

that horrible crash?

I feel OK. Yes,

1:39:301:39:35

think it was more of a shock, I

haven't had a crash for about three

1:39:351:39:39

years I think. Been very lucky. It

is not as bad as I thought it was

1:39:391:39:44

going to be. I have a few cuts and

bruises and stuff. I have had a

1:39:441:39:52

problem with my suit.

It looked a

really sore one because you came the

1:39:521:39:57

long way down on the the track. You

know, our hearts were in our mouths

1:39:571:40:01

wondering if you would get back up,

was there ever a doubt?

I don't

1:40:011:40:05

know. I wasn't really thinking about

it to be honest. It is such a shock

1:40:051:40:11

you don't know which way you have

fallen. The world spins for a second

1:40:111:40:14

and then you are on floor. I was

grateful. I curled up in a ball and

1:40:141:40:18

thought people were going to hit the

back of me. I was lucky, I have a

1:40:181:40:23

few cuts and graze, not really any

splinters.

Look back over the

1:40:231:40:28

Omnium, you put yourself new a

really strong position, you gave

1:40:281:40:31

yourself a chance here.

Yes, it was

a bit of a surprise, I wasn't

1:40:311:40:37

supposed to doing this, Kate was

supposed to be racing. I only found

1:40:371:40:42

out yesterday afternoon, so I have

exceeded my expectations because I

1:40:421:40:45

was in the rankings but I feel a bit

gutted, I had bad luck, I put myself

1:40:451:40:50

in a good position going into the

points race and had nothing, which

1:40:501:40:55

happens sometimes but I wasn't

planning on doing the Omnium, I

1:40:551:40:58

didn't plan to do multiple races in

a day, I have just been training for

1:40:581:41:03

one raze race, so I yes, happy as I

can be with it considering

1:41:031:41:07

everything.

So a hugely entertaining

and highly entertaining competitive

1:41:071:41:14

three day, what has impressed you in

the opening days of of the World

1:41:141:41:19

Championships?

The health of the

sport quite political but to see the

1:41:191:41:24

medals spread round is good. There

is a lot of competitive nations. It

1:41:241:41:30

gets interest in the sport, I think

on that note seeing Wild within the

1:41:301:41:35

Omnium and strongly finishing it to

take the last sprint there there

1:41:351:41:39

from the bunch. That was great to

watch.

It has been a tremendous

1:41:391:41:43

performance from the Dutch so far at

these World Championships, what has

1:41:431:41:48

impressed you so far

For men to get

that close to the world on a track

1:41:481:41:53

that is not that great, the air

pressure was high, no weak links in

1:41:531:41:58

that team, they will be a really

strong team come Tokyo in two years'

1:41:581:42:02

time. Puerta in the Kirrin, he has

come close before, for a small

1:42:021:42:08

nation to win a gold medal, that was

great to see.

From a British

1:42:081:42:12

perspective, not a bad opening few

days.

Really good. It is an

1:42:121:42:16

encouraging performance so far. A

this point in the Championship, at

1:42:161:42:19

this point in the Olympic cycle

there is a lot to be happy about.

1:42:191:42:22

There is great stand out

performance, some new blood coming

1:42:221:42:26

into the team, so I think the

coaches will be happy but there is

1:42:261:42:31

more to come.

Do you agree with that

Chris?

Yes. ? Meddling across

1:42:311:42:38

virtually all the discipline, being

in the hunt, think they are better

1:42:381:42:43

than they normally are two years out

from an Olympic cycle.

We will catch

1:42:431:42:49

up with him later. That is all from

us here for the moment. The live

1:42:491:42:53

action continues here tonight with

the highlight the women's madison,

1:42:531:42:59

you through that on the Red Button.

1:42:591:43:03

tomorrow and a look back at tonight.

1:43:031:43:14

championships in Birmingham. Gabby

1:43:201:43:25

Bye for now.
