UCI Track Cycling World Cup Glasgow 2016 - Chris Auld

The weekend of 4-6 November saw the first round of the UCI Track Cycling World Cup for 2016-7, with the action taking place at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow. Great Britain put out a young team, with many Olympic stars sitting this one out after their exertions in Rio. Nonetheless, Team GB brought home five gold medals and finished top of the medal table.

Perhaps the highlight of the weekend was the victory of Katie Archibald and Manon Lloyd in the women's Madison - achieved despite Archibald's sustaining a broken wrist in a bad crash mid-race. This was the first time the women have ridden this event at a UCI Track World Cup round.
