women's team pursuit

The Great Britain gold rush continued in the first final on Friday night with the women?s trio of Rebecca Romero, Wendy Houvenaghel and Joanna Rowsell winning the world title in the new 3000-metre women?s pursuit event.

The trio rode a near?perfect ride to set a new world best time of 3:22.415.

They beat the Ukraine team with ease in the final after two of their riders lost contact in the final kilometre. Germany won the bronze medal in the ride-off against Belarus, with a time of 3:26.960.

Joanna Rowsell suffered in the afternoon qualification ride but all three were impressive in the final, giving Britain a second team pursuit title after the men?s title on Thursday night.

Britain have now dominated all four pursuit events at the Manchester world championships, with Wiggins and Romero taking rare doubles.
