The second – and penultimate – full day of competition at the Glasgow World Cup saw a number of non-Championship events added to the programme – the Women’s Individual Pursuit and the Men’s Scratch – as well as World Cup Women’s Sprint, Men’s Keirin, Women’s Madison and Men’s Points Race.

Women’s Sprint Qualifying 200m Time Trial

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Simona Krupeciate sets the fastest time in the Women’s Sprint Qualification

Simona Krupeckaite of Lithuania’s outstanding form continued and she clocked 10.951 to earn the first of four byes to the 1/8 Finals. Tania Calvo of Spain was just over a hundredth of a second behind on 11.083 and Holly Takos of Australia and a tenth behind on 11.139. The last of the byes went, predictably, to Liubov Basova who clocked 11.199 to pip Krupeckaite’s team mate Migle Marozaite by four thousandths of a second.

Women’s Individual Pursuit Qualifying

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Emily Nelson of Great Britain wasn’t originally scheduled to ride in the Individual Pursuit but that didn’t stop her setting the fourth fastest time

Emily Nelson of Great Britain wasn’t expecting to ride today but stepped in and found herself on the top of the leaderboard with a 3:39.309. Her team mate Eleanor Dickinson – also a late entry (to the squad, as well as the event) – was up in the next heat and while she finished eight tenths off Nelson’s time, her opponent in the heat – Tatsiana Sharakova of Belarus – was three seconds quicker than either of the British riders – stopping the clock in 3:36.271.

Her lead lasted until the penultimate heat when Justyna Kaczkowska of Poland trimmed and impressive five seconds off the leading time, clocking 3:31.456. The final heat saw Elise Delzenne of France also edge past Sharakova but her 3:34.902 was only good enough for second – and a place in the final.

Women’s Sprint 1/16 Final

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Mandy Marquadt of the the USA wins one of the two 1/16 Final heats

The small field and the new rules meant that only two actual heats were needed to decide who progressed to the 1/8 finals. Takako Ishii of Japan – fastest of those who hadn’t qualified by right – effectively got a bye – drawn on her own in the first heat – while Mandy Marquadt of the USA despatched Gloria Manzoni of Italy – still looking battered and bruised from her Keirin crash yesterday – and Zhao Juan Meng of Hong Kong went through at the expense of Tapei rider Tzu Chin Wang.

Liubov Basova of Ukraine holds off her compatriot Olena Starikova to progress to the Quarter Finals

The 1/8 Finals largely went to form with Krupeckaite, Calvo, Takos, Basova and Marozaite all progressing and the three riders who progressed from the 1/16 finals all lost out in this round – to Jun Han of China, Nicky Degrendele of Belgium and Helena Casas of Spain respectively.

Men’s Keirin 1st round

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
In possibly the least predictable of the Keirin heats, Zac Williams of New Zealand and Muhammd Sahrom of Malaysia qualified for the Second Round

Two riders progress from each of the First round Keirin heats with on from Andrii Vynokurov of Ukraine winning heat one from Tomoyuki Kawabata of Japan. Zac Williams of New Zealand booked his place in the Second Round along with Muhammad Shah Firdaus Sahrom of Malaysia.

Heat 3 saw Yudai Nitta of Japan and Germany’s Marc Jurczyk progress, with Sebastian Vigier of France and Tomas Babek of the Czech Republic taking the last two spots.

Vasilijus Lendel of Lithuania pipped Joe Truman of Great Britain to the first of the spots from the Repechages, but Lewis Oliva of Wales, riding for Team USN, took the third heat. Thomas Clarke of Australia and Aleksandr Dubchenko were the last of the qualifiers.

Women’s Sprint Quarter Finals

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Holly Takos of Australia loses out to Nicky Degrendele of Belgium in the Quarter Finals

The all Lithuanian Quarter Final was closer than many might have predicted, but still went the way of the favourite with Krupeckaite eliminating Marozaite with the need for a decider. Calvo saw off Han in two and Degrendele had a similarly smooth passage against Takos.

The near-shock came in the last match where Basova – who has looked as strong this week as she did at the Europeans two weeks ago – took the first race but needed a decider to see off Casas.

Men’s Scratch Final

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
The winning break in the Men’s Scratch Race with eventual winner Robbe Ghys of Belgium at the head of affairs

A fast, fragmented Scratch Race was decided twenty laps from the end when Robbe Ghys of Belgium, Maksim Piskunov of Russia and Ivo Oliveira of Portugal took a lap. Ghys always looked the stroner and while Morgan Kneisky of France and World Champion Sebastian Mora of Spain were sprinting it out for fifth, Ghys was tucked in behind them to ensure the win.

Women’s Individual Pursuit Final

Glasgow 2016 Day 3

The Individual Pursuit Finals were as predictable as the qualifying times with Sharakova holding off Nelson to take the Bronze and Kaczkowska taking the final with ease – taking a massive six seconds out of Delzenne.

Women’s Sprint Semi Finals

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Liubov Basova of Ukraine took her place in the Final at the expense of Spain’s Tania Calvo

We first saw Degrendele in Glasgow in 2013 at the Junior Worlds where she won the Keirin and took a Bronze in the Sprint behind Courtney Field of Australia and Tatiana Kiseleva of Russia – both of whom have been left in her wake this weekend. Krupeckaite’s been around rather longer, but is in the form of her life and didn’t need a third ride to ease past the young Belgian and in to the Final.

Basova, too, is on the top of her game and took the second slot, also completing her match with Calvo in two rides.

Men’s Keirin 2nd round

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Vasilijus Lendel of Lithuania wins the first of the Kerin Second Round heats

The ‘semi finals’ of the Men’s Keirin were both lively affairs with Lendel taking the first from Jurczyk and Dubchenko – Andrii Vinokurov finally seeming to run out of steam this weekend. The second saw a comfortable win for Babek with Tomoyuki Kawabata and Yudai Nitta of Japan initially taking the other two places before Kawabata’s relegation for blocking Oilva, who took his place in the Final.

Men’s Points Race Final

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Cameron Meyer of Australia looked this relaxed for most of the Points Race

Cameron Meyer of Australia knows a bit about Points Races – World Champion in 2009, 2010 and 2012 (he had to settle for Silver in 2011) and in the Madison in 2010 and 2011 (with a Silver in 2009). And he didn’t just win Points Races, he dominated them. The run ended in 2012 when Meyer chose to concentrate on the road but after four years away – and a ‘comeback’ race at 6 Day London last week – he was back with a vengeance.

His first attack came in company with Adam Jamieson of Canada – later to be joined by Mark Stewart of Great Britain – and, although Jamieson eventually dropped off, it result in a lap gain for Meyer and Stewart.

Sam Harrison of Team USN and Benjamin Thomas of France would also take a lap in the closing  stages – Thomas with three intermediate sprint wins and a couple of second places would take the Silver and Harrison the Bronze – pipping Stewart by a single point.

Meyer, meanwhile, was in a class of his own. He took another two laps and four sprints along the way to finish with 81 points – 37 ahead of Thomas. It was as though he’d never been away.

Men’s Keirin Finals

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Tomas Babek of the Czech Republic added World Cup Gold to his recent European Keirin title

Vynokurov’s consolation for not making the final was a win in the Minor final ahead of the impressive Sahrom. The final saw Oliva take the initiative but then it was all Babek, the Czech rider storming through to take the win from Lendel with Oliva holding on for the Bronze.

Women’s Sprint Finals

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Simona Krupeckaite of Lithuania was majestic in her Sprint Final against Belgium’s Nicky Degrendele

Basova missed out on the final at the European Championships two weeks ago – where Krupeckaite bat Russia’s Anastasia Voinova to take the jersey – but she still didn’t quite have enough to stop the Lithuanian. The organisers in Glasgow showed comparative stats before the sprints – more like a boxing match than track cycling – and the two finalists looked very evenly matched on paper. On the track, however, Krupeckaite dominated the match, taking the Gold medal comfortably. Calvo took the Bronze.

Women’s Madison Final

Glasgow 2016 Day 3
Despite their early crash, Manon Lloyd and Katie Archibald of Great Britain took the win in the Women’s Madison – overhauling France in the Final Sprint

The first senior Women’s Madison at World level didn’t disappoint. A major crash in the early stages eliminated the Belgian duo – winners of the inaugural Senior event at the European Championships two weeks ago – and left the GB pairing of Katie Archibald and Manon Lloyd in a heap on the track. Archibald quickly rejoined but Lloyd’s bike needed attention and by the time she returned to the fray Archibald had completed the equivalent of a double stint.

The French pair of Coralie Demay and Laurie Berthon dominated the early stages – taking the first sprint and picking up second or third in the next five. Great Britain, on the other hand, didn’t score a point until sprint four but at the bell Archibald urged ahead to take the win. They won the next two – putting themselves in contention, two points behind the French. Ukraine took the penultimate sprint with both the leading teams failing to score again, but a well-timed handsling put Archibald back into the race to take the final gallop. France, as ever, were right behind them but it wasn’t enough to hang on to the Gold – double points meant that GB finished on 25, France on 23 with Russia taking third to tie with Ukraine on 13 points but snatch the Bronze on count back.
