Amy Roberts picked up her second bronze medal in as many days at the Junior Track World Championships in Invercargill, New Zealand.

Roberts, who is part of British Cycling's Olympic Development Programme, finished a comfortable third behind Australian victor Taylah Jennings and Kiwi Sophie Williamson. 24 hours earlier she won bronze in the women's team pursuit alongside Elinor Barker and Hayley Jones after setting a new national record.

Jon Dibben sits in fourth place after the first three events of the omnium. He got off to the perfect start, winning the flying lap before finishing fourth in the points race and tenth in the elimination event.

Reigning European and National kilo champion Matt Rotherham got his championships underway with a seventh place in the time trial.
