Memorable final day for British riders in Los Angeles

Ball and Rotherham

British Cycling's squad were at their best to round off the world championships in Los Angeles with six more medals.

Jon Gildea became a world champion earlier in the week - and like buses two titles came along at once with a valiant performance in the scratch.

He was originally awarded with the silver medal but was promoted after a review from officials.

Sophie Thornhill and Corrine Hall won their third title of the week in dramatic fashion. Team-mates Alison Patrick and Helen Scott took them all the way to a deciding race in the tandem sprint but were edged out for silver.

Aileen McGlynn and Louise Haston ensured another British clean sweep with victory over Australia in the bronze medal clash.

Matt Rotherham and James Ball made it two gold medals in the competition but they had to work hard for it. Fellow Brits Neil Fachie and Craig MacLean forced them to a third race in the final which Ball and Rotherham won superbly.
