Wednesday's live coverage
The rivalry between Great Britain and France's team sprint riders continues, after the nations qualified for the gold medal final.
Great Britain's trio of Jamie Staff, Jason Kenny and Matt Crampton, who replaced the injured Sir Chris Hoy, set a fine time of 43.738, only to see Gregory Bauge, Michael D'Almeida and Kevin Sireau sneak inside it.
Britain won gold at the Olympic Games in Beijing last summer, and the French were victorious in Manchester a year ago.
