Rowsell takes a second gold but other nations fight back

Coledan wins men's pursuit, Vogel dominates the women's sprint

Great Britain continued their run of success on the second day of racing at the Manchester track World Cup but other nations showed they have the talent to take and on and beat the Brits in some events.

Joanna Rowsell won the women’s individual pursuit for Great Britain but Italy’s Marco Coledan won the men’s individual pursuit race, France's Francois Pervis won the men’s Keirin and Ireland's Martyn Irvine snatched victory in the men's points race. Great Britain had to settle for the lesser medals and other minor placings.

However Rowsell kept morale high in the Great Britain pits by taking her second gold medal 24 hours after winning team pursuit gold on Friday. She had a difficult 2013 season, marred by breaking a collarbone in a crash at the women's circuit race at the RideLondon GP in August. She has not competed on the road since but has stacked up intense training on the track to give her the necessary speed for the three-kilometre pursuit.

Rowsell qualified fastest and then set a time of 3:34.904 to beat Australia’s Rebecca Wiasak in the final. Scotland’s Kate Archibald also impressed, taking the ride-off for bronze against Poland’s Eugenia Bujak with a time of 3:37.093.

Italian pursuiters were once the best in the world and Marco Coledan gave a hint of the talents of a new generation of track riders by winning the individual pursuit. The Bardiani Valvole-CSF Inox pro rider beat Russia’s Alexandre Serov in the final with a time of 4:22.641. Spain’s Sebastian Mora beat Tom Bohli of Switzerland in the ride-off for bronze.

France's Francois Pervis won the Keirin with a well-timed sprint, with Britain’s Jason Kenny only a surprise fourth after starting his final effort too far back. Maximilian Levy was second and Hersony Canelon of Venezuela was third.

In the points race, Martyn Irvine made a late rush to win the gold medal. He seemed off the pace following his ride in the individual pursuit earlier in the day but he grabbed points late on and in the last sprint to beat Denmark's Lasse Norman Hansen by 20 points to 17.

Vogel dominates the women’s sprint

Kristina Vogel dominated the women’s sprint after also taking gold in the team sprint on Friday. Vogel was beaten by Britain’s Becky James at last year’s world championships but was the fastest in Manchester, beating James in the semi-finals before going on to beat Hong Kong's Wai Sze Lee for gold.

Lee had beaten Anna Meares in her semi-final as the Australia champion continued her comeback to competition following her time off after her London 2012 success. Meares was also beaten by James in the ride-off for bronze, with the Welsh women winning 2-0.

Belgium’s Jasper De Buyst took gold in the men’s multi-discipline Omnium event. He was only seventh fastest in the individual pursuit event but finished third in the scratch race and his consistency from day one secured him victory. Tim Veldt of the Netherlands was second with 18 points and Aaron Gate of New Zealand was third with 24 points.

The Manchester World Cup ends on Sunday with the third day of racing, including the conclusion of the women’s omnium, the men’s scratch race, the women’s Keirin and the men’s sprint competition.
