Chris Hoy sprint qualify

Four world titles in two days and a new world record in men?s team pursuit but everyone in the Great Britain team is confident there is more to come before the end of the championships on Sunday.

Chris Hoy is the favourite to win the sprint title on Friday after dumping world and Olympic champion Theo Bos out of the competition in the 1/4 finals on Thursday.

Following her success in the women?s team sprint with Shanaze Reade, Victoria Pendleton is also buzzing with confidence ready for today?s sprint competition, while Rebecca Romero will be back in action, leading the women in the new three-rider 3000-metre team pursuit.

Perhaps the only race were Britain is not a favourite for a medal is in the men?s points race. Mark Cavendish replaced Chris Newton after he broke his collarbone in a training ride but Cavendish has not been at his best since switching from the road to the track this week. However ?Cav? is a born winner and is expected to give his all in the 40km race. His fast finish and aggression could cause a surprise.

Brailsford; "I don't think it's over yet."

Great Britain won seven world titles in the 2007 world championships in Majorca and Performance director Dave Brailsford is convinced there is more to come before Sunday.

?We?ve shown we?re competitive and I think we?ll be competitive in other events. I don?t think it?s over yet,? Brailsford said.

Head coach Shane Sutton celebrated the three world titles and world record on Thursday and is convinced Chris Hoy can go all the way in the sprint.

?All the performances have been outstanding so far.

If you?re going to go on and fight for Olympic gold in Beijing you need to be up there now and so I think we?re in with a great chance,? he told Cycling Weekly.

?The three world titles were fantastic but the thing that really wet my lips was seeing Chris Hoy down the world and Olympic champion Theo Bos in the sprint. He?s growing on confidence and now he?s very competitive in sprint. With the other lads all doing well, we?ve got real depth in the sprint programme and that means we?ve got a massive future and we?re going to have a successful next few days.?
