Great Britain struck gold in the women's team pursuit at the Track Cycling World Championships in Apeldoorn, Netherlands, last night, but Jessica Varnish and Victoria Pendleton had to settle for silver in the team sprint.

Wendy Houvenaghel, Dani King and Laura Trott qualified fastest to progress to the gold medal ride-off against the United States in the three-kilometre team pursuit and the trio backed up their afternoon effort to take gold.
