Weekend Events Round Up: 1st/2nd December 2018


Tissot Track Cycling World Cup

30 November - 2 December


Scottish favourite Katie Archibald demonstrated once again that she is a force to be reckoned with in the omnium as she emerged victorious at the TISSOT UCI Track World Cup in Berlin this weekend. The event was not without its dramas however. Having dominated in the Tempo, Scratch and Elimination races she crashed in the point race. Thankfully, after a speedy recovery she took her second title of the weekend.

Archibald was also part of the Women’s Team Pursuit foursome who stormed to victory in the opening night of the Track World Cup.

This win saw her join fellow Scot Mark Stewart who was partnered with Ollie Wood in the Madison on the podium on Berlin. The pair secured their second successive Madison silver with an impressive dramatic finish. Jack Carlin was part of the Team Sprint who rode a brilliant race to take home Silver.

HuubWattbike made it into the Bronze medal race against Canada coming away with forth. Jonathan Wale was also 9th in the Kilo. The team are now looking forward to the London round of the Track World Cup to really make their mark on the Team Pursuit event.
