Helmet-full. Hatful. Bagful. whichever way you want to describe a collection of medals, it won’t be enough to describe the amount the Six Day London favourites picked up this weekend.

After a few weeks away from international competition the action resumed at high-octane pace, with batteries recharged and the need for speed well and truly back in Milton, Canada.

The third round of the World Cup saw all kinds of impressive performances, with Six Day London champion Katie Archibald in a familiar position of leading things from the front.

First came a brilliant performance in the points race, storming to gold ahead of fellow Six Day star and home favourite Jasmin Duehring who took silver.

But it was to get better still for the Scot, teaming up with Ellie Dickinson – who also competed on the home boards in October – in the Madison, yet again standing atop the podium.

That followed the Madison win Archibald enjoyed with Elinor Barker in Manchester, with the talent seemingly not showing any end.

They were not the only pair to take centre stage however as Kenny de Ketele also took victory in the Madison, though it came alongside his Belgian teammate Lindsay de Vylder as opposed to usual partner-in-crime Moreno de Pauw.

That same race brought about bronze for Mark Stewart and Ollie Wood, old Six Day London friends and housemates, with Stewart also getting silver in the points race to end his year-long barren run without an individual medal.

There were no such ruts for Niklas Larsen though, the Dane continuing his top form across different competitions by picking up a first World Cup omnium win of the season in Milton.

Gaining a lap in the points race proved the key in the four-discipline event, rampaging through the field to take his place on top.

As if that wasn’t enough, Larsen reigned supreme in the individual points race in another strong weekend on the boards.

Our sprint kings couldn’t keep out of the action either, with Eddie Dawkins and Ethan Mitchell – battlers of the self-named Kiwi Cup – helping New Zealand to team sprint victory.

Sam Webster was also part of the team that beat Great Britain into second while the Czech Republic wrapped up the bronze medal.

Six Day London sprinters’ champion Mitchell was to pick up silver in the sprint, while Allison Beveridge was part of the Canada team that prevailed in the team pursuit on home boards.
