5th April 2018

Men’s 4km Team Pursuit
The battle for the medals in the Men’s 4km Team Pursuit is likely to be between Australia, England and New Zealand. England have three of Great Britain’s World Championship winning team present in Queensland so it will be interesting to see how Kian Emadi, Ethan Hayter and Charlie Tanfield cope without the experience of Ed Clancy. A full strength Australian Team will be eager to win gold on home soil, however if the form books from the Apeldoorn Worlds are anything to go by the English will just edge it.

Actual Results
1. Australia
2. England
3. Canada

Actual Results
1. New Zealand
2. England

Women’s 4km Team Pursuit
With Canada, New Zealand and Australia all full strength it will interesting to see how Great Britain’s nations perform as Katie Archibald (Scotland) Elinor Barker (Wales) means the legendary Team Pursuit quartet has been broken up. England look the strongest of the three with Emily’s Kay and Nelson and Eleanor Dickinson all experienced enough to combine for a shout at the medals, however it will be very tough for any nation outside of Canada, New Zealand and Australia to medal.

6th April 2018

Men’s 4km Individual Pursuit
A star studded line up is likely to make the Individual Pursuit one of the most highly anticipated Pursuits in recent memory. We are predicting the unthinkable, in a baking hot Anna Meares Velodrome the World Record will tumble.

Actual Results
1. Charlie Tanfield (England)
2. John Archibald (Scotland)
3. Dylan Kennett (New Zealand)
4. Jordan Kerby (Australia)

Men’s Keirin
We are very excited for the Men’s Keirin as we honestly cannot predict who will take the medals. Will it be 2017 World Champion Azizul Awang? Malasyian Awang is based in Australia and was disqualified for dangerous riding at the 2010 Commonwealth Keirin in Delhi, handing victory to team mate Josiah Ng. Ng has since retired so Awang will be keen to win Gold on what has become home soil for the ‘pocket rocket man’. Matthew Glaezter and Patrick Constable of Australia will be dangerous, especially if they both make the final and work together to keep the home crowd happy. If he makes the final look out for Welshman Lewis Oliva, who famously left British Cycling to study medicine, he is the British Keirin Champion and an outside bet for a medal.

Actual Results
1. Matthew Glaetzer (Australia)
2. Lewis Oliva (Wales)
3. Edward Dawkins (New Zealand)
4. Jack Carlin (Scotland)
5. Sam Webster (New Zealand)
6. Azizul Awang (Malaysia)

Women’s Sprint
England’s Katy Marchant will be keen to prove that her 2016 Rio Olympic performances were not a fluke as the Great Britain once again pins their hopes on her. Australian’s Kaarle McCulloch and Stephanie Morton will be looking to take over from Anna Meares as the queen of Australian sprinting. Watch out for New Zealand’s Natasha Hansen who is long overdue reward for her long career.

Actual Results
1. Stephanie Morton (Australia)
2. Natasha Hansen (New Zealand)
3. Kaarle McCulloch (Australia)
4. Lauriane Genest (Canada)

Women’s 3km Individual Pursuit
Great Britain’s Team Pursuit quartet could dominate the medals in the individual Pursuit in Brisbane. Welsh rider Elinor Barker has to be favourite with Scotland’s Katie Archibald also in with a shout. England’s Eleanor Dickinson, Emily Kay and Emily Nelson could also medal so it will be interesting to see if Canada, New Zealand and Australia can prevent a British clean sweep. It is incredibly exciting to see such an open and unpredictable Individual Pursuit again.

Actual Results
1. Katie Archibald (Scotland)
2. Rebeca Wiasak (Australia)
3. Annette Edmondson (Australia)
4. Ashlee Ankudinoff (Australia)

Men’s Sprint
World Champion Matthew Glaezter will be keen to repeat his recent victory in Apeldoorn and could face off against Scotland’s Jack Carlin who also impressed in the Netherlands. Carlin’s Scottish team mate Callum Skinner returns so we could see two medals for Scotland. It will be interesting to see how Azizul Awang of Malaysia and Njisane Phillip of Trinidad and Tobago perform as both riders seem to save their best performances for the really big occasions. Others to watch out for are Ryan Owens and Joe Truman of England, Ethan Mitchell and Eddie Dawkins of New Zealand. Canadian duo Stefan Ritter and Hugo Barrette are also ones to watch.

Actual Results
1. Sam Webster (New Zealand)
2. Jack Carlin (Scotland)
3. Jacob Schimd (Australia)
4. Muhammad Shah Firdaus Sahrom (Malaysia)

Men’s 15km Scratch Race
It’s hard to see past Australian’s Leigh Howard and Cameron Meyer in the bunch race events, however the entire field will be watching the riders in yellow so we are in for an exciting Scratch race. We are hoping England give Kian Emadi a ride in this event. The former Sprinter turn Team Pursuit World Champion could surprise the favourites if it comes down to the final lap sprint.

Actual Results
1. Sam Welsford (Australia)
2. Campbell Stewart (New Zealand)
3. Chris Latham (England)
4. Oliver Wood (England)
5. Ethan Hayter (England)

8th April 2018

Men’s 40km Points Race
It’s hard to see past Australian’s Leigh Howard and Cameron Meyer in the bunch race events, however the entire field will be watching the riders in yellow so we are in for an exciting Points race. Scotland’s Mark Stewart could sneak the Gold and England’s Six Day specialists Oli Wood and Chris Latham could also do well.

2. Campbell Stewart (New Zealand)
3. Ethan Hayter (England)

Men’s Kilometre Time Trial
Glaezter’s performance in Apeldoorn makes him favourite and don’t be surprised if we see another sea level World Record. Callum Skinner will be keen to emulate Sir Chris Hoy however we are likely to see a repeat of Melbourne 2006 when Australian Ben Kersten beat Scotland’s Hoy .

Actual Results
1. Matthew Glaezter (Australia)
2. Edward Dawkins (New Zealand)
