The final day of the UCI Track World Cup in Berlin saw five more golds handed out, with Australia ending up top of the medals table. Sam Welsford and Matthew Glaetzer doubled their gold tally to make it four, while Laura Kenny and Emily Nelson added another gold to Great Britain’s haul for three in total.

Elsewhere, Beat Cycling Club’s Laurine van Riessen took gold in the women’s Keirin and Ukraine’s Olena Starikova added to her Sprint bronze with a gold in the 500m TT.

Britain triumph in the women’s Madison

Laura Kenny and Emily Nelson (Great Britain) took their first-ever UCI Track World Cup golds in the Madison with a superb ride to 37 points. Denmark’s Julie Leth and Trine Schmidt grabbed silver with 28 points, while Belgium edged out Russia for third – Jolien D’hoore and Lotte Kopecky were the bronze medallists.

Glaetzer turns the tables on Buchli in the Sprint

For the second consecutive day, there was disappointment for Great Britain’s Jason Kenny, who was knocked out in the second round of the men’s Sprint. Less so for Glaetzer, though, who swept through five rounds into the finals, where he faced Matthijs Buchli (Beat Cycling Club).

Glaetzer was second behind Buchli in the Keirin, but triumphed here, beating the Dutchman in two straight contests. In the bronze medal matchup, Rayan Helal (France) got the better of Mateusz Rudyk with relative ease.

Another gold for Australia in the Omnium

Albert Torres Barcelo (Spain) got off to a strong start in the afternoon session, finishing first and second in the Tempo and Scratch Race. A fourth place in the evening’s Elimination Race saw him take a two-point lead over Sam Welsford (Australia) into the final event – the Points Race.

Welsford, who won the Elimination Race, managed to overcome the small gap though, leading across the line to grab 18 total points to Torres Barcelo’s six. Welford took gold with 128 points, while Torres Barcelo finished second with 118, and Jan Willem van Schip (Netherlands) took bronze with 113 points.

Silvers for Germany in the Sprint and 500m TT

Stephanie Morton (Australia), a gold medallist in the Sprint yesterday, looked to be among the favourites for the Keirin too, topping her heats in rounds one and two. She wouldn’t take another in the final though, finishing bottom of the six riders in the final.

In the end, it was Laurine van Riessen (Beat Cycling Club) who took the Keirin gold, with a time of 11.515. Emma Hinze (Germany) and Yuka Kobayashi (Japan) grabbed the silver and bronze medals.

Daria Shmeleva (Russia) was the class of the field in the women’s 500m TT qualifying session, finishing over three-tenths of a second ahead of Miriam Welte (Germany) and Olena Starikova (Ukraine) to book her place in the final. Once there, the tables were turned, as Starikova took the win ahead of Welte and Shmeleva. It was a closer affair this time around though, with the Ukrainian beating Welte by 0.190 seconds.
