Day five Summary: No panic for Team GB

2009 track cycling world championships logo

Two years of dominance came to an end for the British track team in Poland last week as the other nations finally pegged them back. But this was no disaster, and there will be no panic or blame reverberating through the offices around the Manchester Velodrome.

This was another five days of solid performances from a very different looking British team that won nine medals from nine different events. There was no bumper gold medal haul like the ones in Palma or Manchester, but the medals that were won confirmed that the British team can still hold their own despite fielding a young team missing five of their Olympic champions.
