It was a glittering weekend for our female speed cyclists at the Track World Cup
Super cyclist Laura Trott has added another gold to her medal tally, with victory in the Omnium at the UCI Track World Cup in Glasgow.
Sell-out crowds at the city's Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome proved that the nation's enthusiasm for supporting our Team GB heroes has certainly not faded since the Olympics, when cycling events were among the hottest tickets of the London Games.
Double Olympic champion Laura, aged 20, fought her way to gold after a prolonged tussle with her Australian rival Ashlee Ankudinoff.
She told the Guardian, 'I wanted to win, I was in the silver medal position and thought 'I'm not having that, no way'. I'm a double Olympic and world champion so going home with silver just wasn't going to happen.'
That determination paid off, and Laura took home the medal - her second of the weekend after winning in the team pursuit alongside Dani King and Elinor Barker on Friday.
Team mates Jess Varnish and Becky James also enjoyed a successful Wolrd Cup, winning gold in the team sprint, plus silver and bronze respectively in the match sprint.
