I was looking on The Beeb's website to see if they had video of this. They don't.

Yes if you click on the link I have given above it will take you to it. Unless they have blocked acess from abroad that is, they sometimes have to if they dont have the rights. It might be on Sky if so.

I had to dig a bit, but it wasn't on the BBC or Sky website. Video of it is on Trackworldcup.co.uk.

The second rider touches the first rider's rear wheel, and sweeps the other two up.

Really good performance from Team Arnie in the men's sprint. Is that the biggest team to compete in any cycling event

Was a bit disapointed not to see Ben Swift not given a go in the team sprint, but I'm sure Clancy will grow into it. Cavendish has pretty much confirmed he'd like to be given a chance for Rio 2016

All new men's team pursuit were looking good, until the crash.. Again, Wiggins has hinted he'd like to make a return for Rio, Thomas and Kennaugh too?

Fantastic performance by the UK women's teams. Will be interesting to see what happens in the individuals tomorrow

Another good night for the German sprinters.

Vogel had too much pace and nouse for Jess Varnish in the Gold medal race, winning 2-0. Becky James took Bronze from Lee of Hong Knog

In the Men's Kierin final, Jason Kenny rode into the back wheel of Botiecher on the final bend, crashed out and took La Farge with him. Easy victory for the German, but he looked like he would have won it anyway

In the women's Ominium, Andipoff (sp?) of Australia was leading well after two events, but cocked up in the elimination, which Trotty won (of course. Trott now only one point behind with two events to go, so must be favourite? Nasty crash for the german girl in this event. Race held up and she was stretchered off
