Great Britain’s women took centre stage at the European Track Championships as Laura Trott and Katie Archibald returned from Grenchen with three gold medals apiece.
After winning team pursuit gold together on the opening day, a feat replicated by the Bradley Wiggins-powered male quartet, Trott went on to win both the scratch race and the omnium.
Archibald, meanwhile, won further golds in the individual pursuit and elimination race as Great Britain topped the medal table with six golds and three bronzes – all won by the endurance squads.
Ten months out from the start of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Trott proved her form with a comfortable victory in the omnium – winning the individual pursuit, elimination race and flying lap before maintaining her lead in the points race.
Archibald, meanwhile, qualified fastest in the individual pursuit and beat Elise Delzenne (France) in the final, while team-mate Ciara Horne qualified third fastest and went on to win bronze ahead of Germany’s Mieke Kroeger.
