Australia, Great Britain and Germany laid down impressive markers on day one of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico on Friday. In a day based around qualifying it was Australia who led the way in the men’s team pursuit with a time of 3:57:132.

In a team comprising Glenn O’Shea, Daniel Fitter, Miles Scotson and Samuel Western, the Australians qualified ahead of Great Britain, with The Netherlands third, and Switzerland in fourth. The British team were over a second down on the Australians after the opening 1,000 meters and despite a late charge were unable to overhaul their perennial rivals, crossing the line in a time of 3:57:661.

Great Britain will now face off against The Netherlands with Australia riding against Switzerland.

The British squad managed to top the standing in the women’s equivalent, with Katie Archibald, Laura Trott, Elinor Barker and Ciara Horne dominating proceedings without Joanna Rowsell present. The world record holders in the event clocked a time of 4:20:066, over six seconds faster than their closest rivals, New Zealand. Canada and China finished third and fourth respectively, with the Australian women’s team only managing seventh.

Great Britain will face in round one in a head-to-head with a place in the gold-medal final on offer for the winners.

In the women’s team sprint it was Germany who came out on top in qualifying with the experience Kristina Vogel and Miriam Welte outshining Australia and The Netherlands.

In the men’s event Germany again topped the standings with a time of 42.354 seconds. Great Britain came home in second.
