Great Britain’s Germain Burton, Matt Gibson, Chris Latham and Oliver Wood cruised to the under-23 men’s team pursuit title at the 2015 UEC Under-23 and Junior European Track Championships in Athens, Greece, on Wednesday.

The British quartet overhauled Switzerland in the gold medal final with a strong sub-four-minute time of 3:58.996.

Olympic team pursuit gold medallist Geraint Thomas – currently fifth in the Tour de France – was quick to congratulate the team via Twitter on their medal and fast time.

Team pursuit gold was one of three medals won by Great Britain on day two of the championships, with Katy Marchant and Victoria Williamson claiming silver in the under-23 women’s team sprint and Katie Archibald also securing silver in the under-23 women’s individual pursuit.
