The UCI Track Cycling World Championships concluded in Bordeaux on Sunday with four more events decided: the Women's keirin and scratch race, and the Men's sprint and Madison.

In the keirin, local hope Clara Sanchez was upstaged in the final by German Christin Muche, who recorded a convincing win over the Frenchwoman. Shuang Guo (China) finished with the bronze medal. In the women's scratch race, it was Colombian Olympic bronze medalist Maria Luisa Calle Williams who took home gold, beating Canada's Gina Grain in a messy finale after the pair had lapped the field. Olga Slioussareva (Russia) won the sprint for third.

The men's sprint wound up with the semi-finals and finals raced today. Dutchman Theo Bos added a second gold medal to his collection by convincingly beating Britain's Craig Maclean 2-0 in the final. Stefan Nimke (Germany) was quicker than Mickaël Bourgain (France) for the bronze. Finally, the Spanish pair of Juan Llaneras and Isaac Galvez dominated the men's Madison, lapping most of the field twice and finishing with 16 points, five ahead of Ukraine (Lyubomyr Polatayko and Volodymyr Rybin) and seven ahead of Argentina (Juan Esteban Curuchet and Walter Perez).
