Glasgow’s Katie Archibald has gone from ‘good Scottish rider’ to British championship medalist to European Champion and world team pursuit record holder – and now double World Cup medalist in a matter of weeks.

Scratch race silver in the Manchester World Cup: what was the game plan before the race?

“I was pretty aware of the pursuit the next day so I went into the race planning on staying behind wheels and looking after my legs.

“That went out the window when I thought a break would go; I had to commit to it as my only chance for the podium.

“Four of us had a lap though so I still thought it could all go wrong in the bunch sprint!”
