Colombia's Jannie Salcedo Zambrano secured the first gold medal at the UCI Track World Cup round two in the women's scratch race on Friday at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London. She won the race in a sprint ahead of American rider Lauren Stephens, who earned the silver medal. Poland's Katarzyna Pawlowska, who was a lap down, took the bronze medal.

Salcedo Zambrano and Stephens lapped the field partway through the scratch race and sprinted for the gold and silver medals. Race officials neutralized the event after a crash so that medical staff could treat an injured rider. The racing resumed with five laps to go.

Great Britain quartet - Laura Trott, Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker and Ciara Horne - took the gold medal in the women's team pursuit. Australia - Isabelle King, Ashlee Ankudinoff, Amy Cure and Melissa Hoskins - was forced to settle for the silver medal. Canada secured the bronze medal leaving China to settle for fourth place. Great Britain is leading the overall World Cup standings in the women's team pursuit with 600 points.

China won the gold medal in the women's team sprint against Germany. Again, Great Britain's Jessica Varnish and Vicky Williamson finished fifth in the qualifying round and they did not compete for a medal.

Spain’s Eloy Teruel Rovira won the gold medal in the men's points race with a total of 43 points, beating Belgium's Kenny De Ketele, who finished with 34 points and the silver medal, and Argentina's Eduardo Sepulveda finishing with 31 points, good enough for the bronze medal.
