City of Edinburgh cyclist Katie Archibald was back on the podium during yesterday’s final session at the British Track Championships in Manchester.

The teenager, who had underlined her good form when she took the bronze in Thursday’s individual pursuit, combined with Charline Joiner to take second place in the Madison which was won by Olympic gold medallists Laura Trott and Dani King.

There was also medal success for her clubmate Callum Skinner. He had finished fourth in both the kilometre time trial and Keirin, and was 11th in defending the individual sprint title – his team-mate John Paul was eighth while 42-year-old Craig MacLean, an Olympic medallist in 2000, rolled back the years to finish as top Scot when he clinched fourth spot behind Jason Kenny.

Racing for the North West Region by virtue of being based at the British Cycling Academy in Manchester, Skinner combined with Matt Rotherham and Philip Hindes to take silver in the team sprint, losing the gold medal race-off to Kenny, Kian Emadi and Matt Crampton.

City of Edinburgh duo Bruce Croall and John Paul linked up in Scotland colours with Glaswegian Jonathan Biggin to win the bronze medal decider.
