Well, that's the European Track Championships over for another year. It's been a thrilling ride with plenty of home medals!
The first night of track racing for the European Championships kicked off on Thursday 2nd of August, this is where we saw Katie Archibald beginning her campaign in the Women’s Team Pursuit Qualification. This would lead them onto a Gold medal in a time of 4:16.896 the following day alongside fellow scot Neah Evans who stepped into the team to ride on Saturday.
The Sunday session was a family affair as John and Katie both stepped up to compete in their respective Individual Pursuit disciplines. John came away with a fantastic 5th in his first debut representing Great Britain in a time of 4:17.119.
The Women’s 3000m Individual Pursuit saw Katie come away with a silver medal in a time of 3.29.577. Monday was as equally successful for Katie Archibald as she had tough competition in the Omnium event which saw her adding to her medal haul with a silver medal.
