The final four titles of the 2017 UEC Track European Championships were decided on Sunday, with Germany grabbing gold in the women's sprint and men's keirin, while Great Britain took the women's Madison crown and France grabbed the Madison title for the men.

Elinor Barker and Eleanor Dickinson claimed the women's Madison gold by eight points over runners-up Lydia Boylan and Lydia Gurley of Ireland, while Netherland's Amy Pieters and Kirsten Wild were 12 points down for bronze. The men's Madison was considerably closer, with France's Florian Maitre and Benjamin Thomas slipping past Denmark's Niklas Larsen and Casper Pedersen by a single point. Poland's Wojciech Pszczolarski and Daniel Staniszewski took bronze, three points back.

Germany seized gold in the final two events of the championships, with Maximillian Levy winning the Keirin ahead of Shane Perkins (Russia) and Andrii Vynokurov (Ukraine), and the women's sprint title going to Kristina Vogel over Mathilde Gros (France) and Daria Shmeleva (Russia).

The final wins lifted Germany to the top of the medals table with a total of 12, including five gold, four silver and three bronze. France was second best, notching five gold, one silver and two bronze for a total of eight. Great Britain scored only four medals, but three of them were gold and one silver. Netherlands, Denmark and Italy all had two golds, with Russia, Poland, Belgium and Spain each earning one gold.
