Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker collected their second gold medals after winning the women's team pursuit at the Track World Cup in Manchester.
Emily Nelson and Neah Evans completed the team that comfortably beat Italy by a margin of almost five seconds.
Archibald and Barker won gold in the Madison on Saturday night and were granted Sunday morning off allowing Manon Lloyd and Emily Kay to help Evans and Nelson book Britain's place in the gold medal race with a first-round victory over Belgium.
The team's performance in the final made it the fastest time by a British squad since the Rio Olympics where Archibald and Barker joined Laura Kenny and Joanna Rowsell-Shand in breaking the world record to claim Olympic gold.
