Great Britain women earn gold in team pursuit, team sprint

The opening session of the UCI Track World Cup round two in Glasgow got off to a rocky start for the Great Britain team. The men's team pursuit squad literally fell out of contention in the qualifying round. But the women made up for this mistake by netting two gold medals in the team pursuit and team sprint.

The women's team pursuit squad made up a half second deficit on the Australians in the gold medal final, relying on Olympians Laura Trott and Dani King with newcomer Elinor Barker to pull off the victory over Ashlee Ankudinoff, Melissa Hoskins and Amy Cure of Australia.

"It's looking good for the future," Trott told BBC Sport about Barker's performance."To step into our line up, being world and Olympic champions, is going to be hard anyway, but it's as if she's been in the team for months."

Belarus won the bronze medal over Lithuania.

The British team got its second gold medal in the women's team sprint, with Rebecca James filling in for retired sprinter Victoria Pendleton in the pairing with Jess Varnish.

The duo repeated their strong performance in qualifying to win gold over Spaniards Tania Calvo Barbero and Helena Casas Roige.

Without the powerful final lap of Sir Chris Hoy in his eponymous velodrome, the British men's sprint team was unable to get ahead of the Germans and had to settle for silver in the final.

Rene Enders, Robert Forstermann and Stefan Boetticher won handily over Olympians Jason Kenny, Phillip Hindes and Ed Clancy, who made a switch from the endurance side after his dual gold medals in London, to join the sprint team.

The relatively young British pursuit team had a mishap during their heat that sent three riders tumbling to the wooden track. The gold was won by Denmark over Germany, with bronze going to Belgium.

According to BBC Sport,  British coach Chris Newton said, "It's just one of those things. It hasn't happened for a couple of years.

"Man two, Joe [Kelley], overlapped the wheel and lost it. Man three and four [Harrison and Tennant] came down straight into him."

In the women's 500m time trial, Olga Panarina of Belarus beat Kristina Vogel (Germany) for the gold, with Tania Calvo Barbero of Spain in bronze.

In the first three events of the men's omnium, Spaniard Unai Elorriaga parlayed a victory in the elimination race into the lead in the standings. Flying lap winner Lucas Liss (Germany) is second four points in arrears, while Swiss rider Olivier Beer is in third.
