Great Britain secured the Women’s Team Pursuit Gold play-off against Germany as they caught Belgium in the morning’s heat. The Germany squad posted the fastest time of the session with a 4.15.696 around five seconds off World Record pace held by Team GB at 4.10.236. France take on Italy for the Bronze play-off later.

Denmark take on Italy in the Men’s Team Pursuit setting the quickest heat 1 time of 3.51.251, only three seconds shy of Australia’s World Record. Great Britain will ride against France for the Bronze play-off as Huub Wattbike Test Team narrowly miss out by a couple of 1000’s of a second to France. They deployed Kyle Gordon on the front for a half-dozen laps or so before peeling off to let his team-mates contest the rest of the race. A strategy that nearly worked for the quirky team with a Scottish flavour.

The Sprint competition for the women started with the Keirin. Six heats saw Great Britain’s Katy Marchant safely through whilst World Champion Lee Wai Sze lost out to Shanne Braspennincx before returning to competition through the repechage. France’s Mathilda Gros took the hard route to, but Sophie Capewell race ended with Basova winning her heat.

The morning session finished with the Women’s Scratch Race and Great Britain’s Elinor Barker hoping to take the win. 21 starters saw a couple of attacks early on, but nothing stuck till mid race when a trio of riders Karolina Karasiewicz [Poland], Anastasia Chulkova [Israel] & Diana Klimova [Russia] gained around 3/4s of a lap before Barker with Italian Barbieri & Australian Georgia Baker tried to bridge across.
