Just a quick blast of good news for a Sunday evening, where Olympic favourite Laura Trott has taken World Cup gold in the Omnium, snatching victory from Australia’s Ashlee Ankudinoff in the final event, the 500m time trial. This being a 20 year-old Laura Trott who, by her own admission, is very far from peak fitness one wonders just how good she is going to end up being.
