Great Britain ended the Track Cycling World Cup in Guadalajara, Mexico, with three bronze medals after the young squad failed to add to their tally on the final day on Sunday.

Jon Dibben led the men's omnium overnight, but seventh places in the individual pursuit and the scratch race and then a fifth in the time trial saw him finish fourth overall.

Dani King also had a near-miss in the women's omnium. She had been fourth at the half-way point, but a fifth, a fourth and a 16th place in the remaining three events saw her finish fifth overall.

In the men's sprint, Lewis Oliva and Callum Skinner both qualified for the knockout rounds but suffered defeats in the last 16 against the Netherlands' Hugo Haak and Greece's Christos Volikakis respectively. Skinner ended the competition in 10th, with Oliva finishing 15th.

In the women's keirin, Victoria Williamson came fifth in her first-round heat, which placed her in the places 7-12 final, where she finished third to claim ninth overall.

In the men's madison, Jacob Ragan and Chris Latham, both making their world cup debuts, finished 12th.

The event was the last of three world cups in the 2013/14 season, and attention now turns to the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Cali, Colombia, which take place from February 26 to March 2.
