Great Britain's cyclists dominated at the Track World Championships in Rio, finishing top of the medal table.

The GB team won 18 medals, taking away 11 golds, four silvers and three bronzes. 

Jody Cundy earned gold on the opening day, clocking up his 14th world title in the C4 kilo time trial, with Katie Toft winning the C1 individual pursuit.

On the second day, Megan Giglia sped to victory in the C3 500m time trial... look at her go!

In 2016, Adam Duggleby and Steve Bate were crowned Paralympic champions. Fast-forward two years, and they added a world title to their cabinet. 

Now it was the turn of Lora Fachie and Corrine Hall to zoom to gold in Brazil, as the Brits continued to reign supreme.

Medals continued to pour in for GB, and it was Sophie Thornhill and Helen Scott who were next to top the podium with a world record performance in the B 1km time trial.

Ready for to hear about more golds? Good, because there were plenty. Neil Fachie and pilot Matt Rotherham were next, with a sub-minute time in the B 1km time trial.

Three more top spot finishes came on the final day as Cundy triumphed alongside Jon-Allan Butterworth and Louis Rolfe in the mixed team sprint. Thornhill and pilot Scott followed up in the women's sprint, and the final glory came with Fachie and Rotherham in blistering form, claiming another rainbow jersey.
