Track Magic in Milton
Team GB shine on their Cervélo T4's during the final day of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup in Milton, Canada.
After a great weekend of racing during the UCI Track World Cup in Milton, Canada, the duo of Katie Archibald and Ellie Dickinson went into the Madison full of confidence, with Archibald winning points gold on Friday before Dickinson claimed omnium bronze a day later.
The team GB pair picked up a point in the first sprint after a tough start, measuring their opponents before powering away to win the second sprint. Three points in the next sprint followed by five points in the fourth gave the Great Britain Cycling Team riders a four point lead at the halfway mark of the race.
With breakaway moves blocked, Dickinson and Archibald were able to enjoy the final laps on their T4's, crossing the line to take Great Britain’s second gold of the weekend in Canada.
Ollie Wood began his omnium campaign in style, powering his T4 to second in the scratch race and holding his second position in the tempo race after taking a lap on the field with Gael Suter of Switzerland.
In the third elimination race, Wood finished fourth with his rival Suter taking third, meaning there were four points between the pair with just one event remaining. Wood started the points race strongly, which spurred Denmark’s Niklas Larsen into action. Larsen burst away in an attempt to take a decisive lap on the field with 30 laps to go.
That gave Larsen a 12 point lead over Wood which he would carefully defend to the finish. Olie Wood's silver medal was a fantastic result to accompany his bronze medal in the Madison the night before.
