MORE BRIT SUCCESS
Britain?s cycling success looks unstoppable at the moment, and with Britain?s young cyclists taking seven medals on one day at the European track championships on Saturday, it shows no signs of letting up yet.
Alexandra Greenfield took a gold medal in the junior women?s points race whilst Jess Varnish took gold in the junior women?s keirin. Varnish was imperious, leading from the front and successfully fending off all of her rivals.
Peter Mitchell took bronze in the junior men?s sprint, beating teammate Steven Hill in the shootout for third; Anna Blyth took another bronze in the under 23 women?s 500m time trial; Elizabeth Armistead took a silver in the under 23 women?s points race; Matt Crampton took bronze in the U23 men?s sprint, whilst Joanna Rowsell won bronze in the U23 women?s pursuit, capping off an astonishing weekend for the British team.
WEGELIUS TO SILENCE-LOTTO
Britain?s Charlie Wegelius has been confirmed as part of the 2009 Silence-Lotto roster.

In the 40-49 race, four riders jumped away right from the start and were never seen again, with Graham Baxter taking the 40-44 title and Paul Stubbs taking the 45-49 crown.
