Trott wins women's omnium with late charge

Canada's Laura Brown wins the women's points race, Foerstemann takes the men's sprint

Great Britain topped the UCI World Cup standings after the first World Cup event of the track season in Manchester but the home nation was bettered by Germany in the medals table after mixed fortunes on the third day of racing.

Laura Trott lived up to her superstar status by securing victory in the women’s omnium with a gutsy ride but Germany’s Kristina Vogel was unbeatable in the women’s keirin. Robert Forstemann gave Germany another gold in the men’s sprint, while Canada’s Laura Brown won the women's points race and Andreas Muller of Austria won the men’s scratch race.

Trott took her second gold in Manchester after also winning the team pursuit title on Friday. Just as in the recent European championships and the London 2012 Olympics, she fought doggedly for victory. She was only sixth after the first day of competition but was second in the individual pursuit and then won the scratch race, lapping the group. She wrapped up victory by winning the final time trial event. Trott won with a total of 19 points. Gillian Carleton of Canada was second with 24 points. Laurie Berthon of France took bronze with 26 points.

"If it wasn't for the crowd, I don't think I would have won today," Trott told BBC Sport.

“Taking a lap [in the scratch race] is so hard but I was so far behind. It was a risk I had to take. Going into the race I was six points behind Gillian. I didn't really have a choice. I just thought, if I didn't make it, at least I tried.”

Vogel secured her third gold in Manchester in the keirin after winning the team sprint and women’s sprint titles. She beat Great Britain’s Rebecca James and Sandie Clair of France in the final.

Förstemann flexes his muscles

Germany's Robert Förstemann flexed his huge muscles in the men’s sprint competition, humbling his rivals and especially the British sprinters who had struggled in qualification.

After riding the team sprint and Keirin, Jason Kenny was only 24th in the qualifying ride and so failed to go through to the final 16 sprints. Teammate Matt Crampton did better but was beaten in the semi-finals by two fast rides by the up and coming Njisane Phillip of Trinidad. He faced Förstemann in the final but was beaten 2-0 with the German using his power and speed to win. Australia’s Shane Perkins won the ride-off for third place to take bronze.

Laura Brown won the women’s points race taking a lap with four other riders and securing victory with nine precious points taken during the race. The USA’s Elizabeth Newell was second with 26 points, with Wan Yiu Jamie Wong of Hong Kong third, also with 26 points.

The next event in the three-series World Cup is in Mexico in early December, with South Africa expected to host the third round in January 2014.
