Leaving it right until the final sprint, 2003 champions Bruno Risi and Franco Marvulli (Switzerland) triumphed in the men's madison this evening in Majorca.

They took third in the final sprint, netting two points and moving one ahead of chief rivals, Peter Schep and Danny Stam of the Netherlands. The latter cracked right at the end of the race, failing to score and, compounding their misery, one of the duo collided with an Ukrainian rider and was carried out of the arena on a stretcher.

Switzerland finished on 14 points, the Dutch pair on 13 and Czechs Alois Kankovsky and Petr Lazar netted bronze with 11. Risi and Marvulli won sprints four and seven and were third in two others.

Last year's champion Joan Llaneras and new partner Carlos Torrent were fourth on eight points, having ridden aggressively but being unable to get the extra lap that would have guaranteed them the win. Llaneras looked particularly strong, driving the home crowd crazy every time he shot off the front, but was most likely lacking a little extra after his gold medal-winning ride in the points race yesterday evening.

Early on, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Ukraine and Argentina got a lap on the rest of the field. Llaneras and Torrent had been sprinting well but found themselves adrift as a result. They finally succeeded in bringing that back by taking a lap themselves in the final quarter of the race, but the effort involved in doing this meant that they had little left for the remaining sprints.

British duo Bradley Wiggins and Rob Hayles had gone into the race aiming for a medal, with Wiggins stating earlier in the championship that he was targeting three golds. They came up short, ending the race back in 13th place, two laps down. Russian duo of Mikhail Ignatiev and Nikolay Trussov were fourteenth.

Six weeks before he goes to altitude in Bolivia to tackle the world record, Olympic champion Chris Hoy took his fourth world kilo title in the excellent time of 1:00.999, close to the world sea level best of 1:00.711 he set in Athens 2004.

"Before this world championships, I was saying that this was my best year to date, and this certainly adds to it," said Hoy, who also took gold in the keirin and silver in the team sprint this week in Palma. "With the kilo gone from the Olympics, I will give up riding it after the record attempt, as I will have to start preparing for the Games. Winning this is therefore very important to me."

Jamie Staff was second rider off and set a time of 1:02.074 which stood until the second-to-last rider to go, François Pervis, posted a 1:01.838. However, his time at the top was very limited, as Hoy tore off from the start and led at every time check, going 0.839" quicker than the Frenchman.

European champion Tim Veldt and Teun Mulder netted fourth and fifth for the Netherlands, both coming in under 1:03.

Hoy also won the keirin and finished just 2/1000ths off the top spot in the team sprint, netting two gold medals and a silver.

Together with Victoria Pendelton's three gold medals and the two netted by Bradley Wiggins, this has been the most successful world championship campaign ever for Great Britain.

Women's points race

Bates wins points race

Bouncing back from illness, Katherine Bates went two places better than her 2005 bronze medal when she won the women's points race on Sunday evening.

The Australian ended the 100 lap event with a total of 35 points, being one of four riders who succeeded in taking a lap and then making up the remaining 15 points with good sprinting. Mie Bekker Lacota (Denmark) was second, six points back, while Catherine Cheatley (New Zealand) was two points further adrift in the bronze medal position.

Defending champ Vera Carrara (Italy) was going for her third successive win but finished a disappointed seventh. The woman she beat to win her titles, former champion Olga Slyusareva (Russia), was also off form and finished back in 13th place, while pursuit winner Sarah Hammer (USA) was unsuccessful in her bid to take two gold medals, placing 14th.

Once racing was underway, Yumari Gonzalez Valdivieso showed that the efforts of winning last night's scratch race hadn't blunted her speed, the Cuban taking the first and third sprints. Bates was second and third there, while Carrara got her title defence underway by winning the second sprint and later taking the eighth.

After Adrie Visser netted the fourth, Bates, Lactoa, Belem Guerrero Mendez (Mexico) and Cheatley went clear and crossed the next prime line in that order. They also picked up points ten laps later, with Cheatley taking the maximum this time. The quartet succeeded in gaining a lap on the bunch, scooping 20 points each, and with no other riders able to do likewise between that point and the finish, the medals were destined to be decided between them.

Charlotte Becker (Germany) took sprint seven, Cararra the eighth and Yan Li (China) the ninth. Bates added an additional two points to her haul en route to the finish, while her closest rivals Lactoa and Cheatley were only able to pick up one. Maria Luisa Calle Williams (Colombia) netted the tenth sprint, but by then Bates' total couldn't be beaten, making her the new world champion in the points race despite suffering a bad stomach complaint in recent days.

Women's keirin

Three for Great Britain sprint wonder

Victoria Pendleton leads the way

Coping well with two serious distractions affecting her, Victoria Pendleton raced to her third gold medal in the women's keirin this evening, and thus ended the 2007 championships as the most successful competitor in Majorca.

The keirin was stopped not once, but twice. The first time was when defending champion Christin Muche came down on top of Pendelton, clashing shoulders and nudging her onto the Cote d'Azur line. The race was immediately halted and, after several minutes' deliberation, the German was disqualified.

The second freeze came just after the restart when the derny malfunctioned, being unable to accelerate. The crowd started whistling while the riders had to try to maintain composure and focus while waiting for a second machine to be brought onto the track and the race to restart.

Jennie Reed (USA) tucked in behind the derny and was followed by Anna Blyth (Great Britain). The speed ramped up and with Pendleton back in fourth with a lap to go, it looked like she had a big task on her hands if she was to land her third gold. However she unleashed a strong burst of speed on the back straight to pass the others, leading around the bend. Sprint silver medallist Guo was on her wheel but was unable to get by, having to be content with another second place. Anna Meares took bronze, while Blyth and Reed placed fourth and fifth.

Pendleton was delighted with her success, although she said she was nervous after both stoppages. "In the first one, I was holding the line and the German bumped into me. I couldn't hold the track, I was fighting to stay on it, and I got a bit of a nudge and it swung me off. I wasn't sure if we had to stop because I came off the bottom of the track, or whether it was anything else.

"I was concerned, I was just waiting for the decision. I couldn't understand what was being said. I just hoped that I was still in the race."

She also had a bit of stress after the second incident. "Because the derny came through so slowly, I overtook it. That is usually disqualification. I was expecting it to come through [quicker] and having to back off, it wouldn't have been fair if they did accuse me for overtaking as I wouldn't have been able to go any slower. It nearly turned into a slow bike race!

"After that, I kept focused on trying to get the third gold, to do something really special. Everyone in the team now has got a medal, practically, I didn't really stand out from the crowd [anymore] so I really wanted to get that. I am delighted - I entered three events and have got three goals, now."

Pendleton was quite far back when the speed ramped up, leaving her potentially stranded. "I was a little bit concerned," she admitted. "I knew there was a lap to go. I just waited for things to close up a bit, because it got a bit wide [between riders] in places, and then I just went for it. It was a bit of a risky manoeuvre, but I didn't know what else to do."

She joins team-mate Chris Hoy as a triple medallist but tops his two golds and one silver with three wins. When asked how significant this was, she highlighted the lack of events she can contest in the Olympics. "Well, what am I going to do to top that? It is going to be hard," she smiled. "There is only women's sprint in Beijing, there is no keirin and there is no women's 500. There is even no team sprint yet. Perhaps in 2012 there will be one. But I (will) focus on the sprint and everything else is a bonus."

Next up is a holiday to Japan. She will go and watch a keirin race there, but says that she will take a well deserved break from racing and training, letting her body recover while she savours what she has achieved here in Palma.

Pendleton and 500 m TT champ Anna Meares showed great sustained speed in the second round of the women's keirin, winning each of their heats.

Meares sat second in line behind Anna Blythe and then went around her with a lap and a half remaining, ramping up the speed from there and winning a drag race to the line. Last year's champion Christin Muche (Germany) took second, while Blyth briefly slipped back to fourth and then recovered to third by the line, looking strong enough to perhaps take second but being trapped on the inside. However, with the first three going through to the final she was safe. Dana Glöss (Germany), Natallia Tsylinskaya (Belarus) and Sandie Clair (France) failed to progress.

Pendleton had an easier time in heat two. She passed Jennie Reed (USA) and Shuang Gou (China) with a lap and a half to go, getting a good gap and holding on to the line. Gou was second and Reed third, both going through to the last round, while Oksana Grishina (Russian Federation), Simona Krupeckaite (Lithuania) and Willy Kanis (Netherlands) will join the others in the 7 - 12th final later today.

First round action

Glöss, Pendleton, Kanis, and Meares all won the opening rounds, with Guo, Muche, Blyth and Reed getting through as second-placed riders. Tsylinskaya, Krupeckaite, Grishina and Clair had to go to the repechages in order to progress. Pendleton continued her path toward a third gold medal of her championships with this round.

Finals; Victoria victorious again

Two years after she first won the world title in Los Angeles and one year after she had to settle for silver in Bordeaux, Victoria Pendleton is back in the rainbow jersey of world sprint champion, netting her second gold here in Palma.

Pendleton was up against Shuang Guo in the final and handled things confidently. In the first heat the Chinese rider jumped going onto the final lap but Pendleton passed her easily on the back straight, racing home well clear. She was more audacious in the second round, going from a lap and a half out and again putting a gap between herself and the 2006 bronze medallist.

“I am really pleased about being back in the rainbow jersey again,” she said after the podium presentation. “I think losing last year and finishing in second place was quite tough. I didn’t really go into the world championships feeling my strongest, so I am really glad with this. I wanted it back badly so I was determined to get it this time.

“It is a different feeling [to 2005]. Once you have done it once, you know it is possible again. When you lose it you think ‘I made a mistake there.’ It is nice to have it back.”

In truth, Pendleton appeared well in control in the final. When asked if she found one of the earlier opponents especially difficult, she said that squaring up against three time sprint victor Natallia Tsylinskaya in the quarterfinal was a challenge. “I think riding against Tsylinskaya was tough. Although I knew that from looking at her 200 metre time, she wasn’t going as fast as usual, she is by far one of the strongest sprinters around for many years. A multiple world champion [eight across the disciplines – ed.].

“For me to come up against her in early rounds was quite tough, as it was a ride I imagined doing in a final, not in an early stage. So it was quite hard to do that.”

She was diplomatic when asked if her final was straightforward. “I guess so…. You have demons with certain riders, I guess, certain people who have beaten you in the past, while there are others you have more confidence in beating. In Manchester I beat Shuang, so I went in to the race quite confident.”

In the race for bronze, Anna Meares came out best against Lisandra Guerra Rodriguez (Cuba). She went from a long way out in the first heat and held off her Cuban rival, despite the fact that the ride came less than half an hour after the broke the world record in the 500 m TT.

She repeated the same tactic in the second heat, jumping before the bell and hitting the line well clear.

Great Britain rider Victoria Pendleton moved a step closer to reclaiming her 2005 sprint crown when she beat Cuban Guerra Rodriguez 2-0 in the semi finals.

The British rider raced to a comfortable win in both heats, while her rival for the final, Shuang Guo (China) had it a little more difficult, losing the first race to Anna Meares.

In the second match, the Australian led from the front and wound it up after the bell, but Guo passed her relatively easily. In the decider, Meares changed tactics and left the Chinese rider on front, with Guo holding a two length lead heading into the last lap. However it was the same result, the 2006 bronze medallist having too much power for her rival and holding off the challenge on the finishing straight.

Pendleton sounded determined afterwards. She finished second in 2006 and wants her crown back. "My legs feel good and I just really want to do it here," she said after her warm-down. "Last year I was disappointed with second, I won the Commonwealth title but I was quite disappointed that I couldn't follow through at the worlds. You could see it on my face on the podium, it was a case of forced smiles!"

Going through in two races is clearly a plus. "If you win the first you have the mental advantage. To get it over in two is much easier for me. Coming back after a mistake, you haven't got any chance other than to make amends.

"Some riders respond better to that situation than others. In the past, I always try to get everything out on the third ride but some riders lose their confidence a bit after two races [when it goes to a decider]."

At the time of talking, Guo and Meares still had to have their third race. Pendleton thought that the Australian was capable of coming back and winning, but this later proved not to be the case. She said that she had no preference as regards who she would meet in the final.

"I don't mind who I am up against, for me it is an equal situation. They are both good riders, I have seen them perform this year at a very high level, taking medals at World Cup standard. I think it is pretty even, but I hope it goes well for me against whoever goes through."

Men's sprint

Bos is the boss again

Flying Dutchman Theo Bos added to his haul of world championship gold medals this evening, beating French rider Gregory Bauge 2-0 in the final of the men's sprint.

Bos, who also took the sprint crown in 2004 and 2006 and the keirin last year in Bordeaux, proved too good for his competitor, although the first round was very close. He jumped with a lap and a half to go and got a gap, but Bauge clawed him back all the way to the line and almost got by.

Heat two was more straightforward. Bauge went from a long way out, distancing the Dutch rider by two lengths, but Bos showed an impressive burst of speed to get by on the final bend and win comfortably.

France took a second medal when Mickaël Bourgain beat Craig Maclean (Great Britain) in two rounds. Bourgain led out in the first heat; Maclean drew alongside him and briefly clashed shoulders, earning him a warning from the judges after he finished second.

Round two was also close but Bourgain was again marginally quicker, making sure of bronze and thus joining countryman Bauge and the gold medallist Bos on the podium.

Double world sprint champion Theo Bos moved a step closer to defending his title when he beat Briton Craig Maclean in two rounds of the sprint semifinals on Sunday morning.

The big Dutchman had few problems dealing with last year's runner-up, taking the first heat in a time of 10.966 seconds and then uncorking the fastest semifinal time of 10.476 seconds in the second.

Gregory Baugé had a tougher time of it, going to three races with fellow Frenchman Mickaël Bourgain. He won the first one in a photo finish, overtaking Bourgain after he led out. The second was a little more decisive, with Bourgain posting a time of 10.535 seconds and coming out on top by half a wheel.

The decider was a very tight affair, with both riders neck and neck and flat out for over a lap. Baugé was half a wheel down heading into the final bend but his position on the inside line saw him exit from the turn slightly ahead and he edged the win.
