ELINOR BARKER AND EMILY NELSON WIN SILVER IN THE MADISON AT THE
UCI TRACK CYCLING WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Olympic champion Barker, 22, and world championship debutant Nelson, 20, collected 34 points over 120 laps to finish behind Belgium duo Lotte Kopecky and Jolien D'Hoore on 44 points.
Barker said: "I was nervous because we'd only ridden one each before, we didn't know what to expect.
"I'm not surprised at all by the Belgians winning - they are a Madison nation, so hats off to them, they were impressive."
Newly crowned omnium champion Katie Archibald narrowly missed out on a medal ride in the individual pursuit finishing in fifth place whilst senior academy rider Eleanor Dickinson broke her personal best time by five seconds to finish in 12th place with a time of 3:34.982 seconds. On the men’s endurance side, Chris Latham was in action in the omnium, finishing in 18th position overall.
Ryan Owens finished his impressive debut world championship sprint event in fourth position. Katy Marchant was 13th in the women’s 500m time trial.
Great Britain Cycling Team have now won four medals - one gold, two silver and one bronze - in Hong Kong with one more day of action left of the competition.
