Britain’s Katie Archibald successfully defends her title

It was another successful day for British cycling yesterday as Katie Archibald secured overall victory on the final evening of the Six Day London.

The British competitor and defending champion was able to hold off competition from fellow Scot Neah Evans and Wales’ Emily Nelson who finished third.

Archibald finished with a 55-point advantage over Evans to add defending champion of the event to her already glistening résumé.

At only 23-years-old the cyclist from Milngavie has an Olympic gold medal from the Rio 2016 Team Pursuit, as well as being a 10-time European champion and a two-time world champion.

It was back to business as usual then for the flying scotswomen, after firstly winning the Tempo race and then later defeating Neah Evans in the Elimination Race.

These successes gave a glimpse of how the evening was going to play out, as towards the end of the night Archibald also won the UCI Omnium event for three wins in a single evening.
