Aussies take gold on day one at track cycling world championships

She will have a chance to add to that haul on day two.

The Dutch men proved in a class of their own as they defended their team sprint title, leaving France trailing by almost a full second in the gold medal race.

The flying Dutch trio of Roy van den Berg, Harrie Lavreysen and Jeffrey Hoogland proved untouchable as they retained the title they took on home boards in Apeldoorn last year.

Day two action includes the men’s 15km scratch race, and women’s and men’s team pursuit finals — which will feature Australia — after Sam Welsford, Alexander Porter, Leigh Howard and Kell O’Brien rode into the decider, where they’ll take on the Brits.
