Great Britain finished its sweep of the Team Pursuits Sunday at the UCI World Cup II in Manchester, beating European champions Italy into second place by nearly five seconds in the final.

Katie Archibald, Elinor Barker, Neah Evans and Emily Nelson claimed Great Britain’s third gold medal of the weekend, posting a time of 4:16:803 in the process.

Emily Kay and Manon Lloyd had stepped in for Archibald and Barker – who combined to win the Madison last night – in the first round as Great Britain beat Belgium to book their place in the final.

In other racing on the final day of the World Cup, Matthijs Buchli (Beats Cycling Club) took gold in the Keirin, finishing ahead of Andrii Vynokurov (Ukraine) and Juan Peralta Gascon (Spain) in the final. Buchli, the Keirin winner last week in Poland, missed out on the podium earlier in the sprint on Saturday this weekend when he crashed in the semi-finals. 

“This is so bizarre," Buchli said. "I had never expected this. Yesterday, I was hurting a lot. This morning I had no confidence in today's tournament. I wanted to use today's first heat to see how things felt. I raced without any tactics and completely on autopilot. The first round and the final just went very well and especially very fast. Apparently, such a crash doesn't matter if you are in shape.”

Women's Keirin winner Kristina Vogel (Germany) continued her dominance of the women's speed races, taking gold in the sprint final from Laurine Van Riessen (Matrix Pro Cycling). Anastasiia Voinova (Russia) beat Shanne Braspennincx (Netherlands) for bronze.

Denmark's Niklas Larsen and Casper Von Folsach won the Madison, tied on 46 points with runners-up Benjamin Thomas and Morgan Kneisky of France. Poland's Daniel Staniszewski and Wojciech Pszczolarski finsihed third, nine points behind the winners.
