All the results are on Tissot, and if you want to see videos from the men’s races, check out the UCI’s and British Cycling’s youtubes. Here’s the UCI’s combined live racing from the final session, with highlights from previous races
On Day 1 we had the women’s Team Pursuit, Team Sprint and Scratch race. Here’s the British Cycling highlights video

Videos of the individual Day 1 races:
In their qualification ride, the Canadian team lost one rider to a crash, but still ended third fastest. Great skills from Steph Roorda not to fall too
and Great Britain qualified fastest (click through for video). One of the semi-finals (more vid)were a bit controversial – GB nearly caught USA, so the USA weren’t allowed to change til they were passed… but GB decided not to make the catch for the last half, so USA riders had to change… and were DQed.
In the race for Bronze, Canada redeemed themselves…
…and the gold finals was that classic match-up – GB v Aus
Jayco-AIS v Russia race for bronze
and China v Germany for gold
Here are the highlights montage:
The British Cycling videos are natuarally very Brit-focused – here’s Jess Varnish against Olga Streltsova in the 1/16th finals; against Zhong Tianshi in the 1/8th finals; and with Lin Junhong and Lee Wai Sze in the 1/16th final repechage.
Wish this had been the Final rather than the Quarters…

The 500m saw a shake-up to the standings… well, except at the top!
Jolien D’hoore won the Flying Lap – here’s Laura Trott finishing 5th, but still keeping her lead
Have you ever wondered how a Track World Cup is put together, and what it’s like backstage?
