Three consistently good rounds in Guadalajara, London and Cali saw the Germans take the victory from Great Britain in second, with Australia third.

The final session of the World Cup saw more German glory as Maximilian Beyer won the points race, the sixth and final event of the men's omnium ahead of Jasper De Buyst, ensuring that he won the competition overall ahead of the Belgian.

Hosts Colombia had a medal to cheer in the men's sprint competition as Fabian Puerta, gold medallist in yesterday's keirin, took bronze ahead of Germany's Maximilian Levy.

The gold medal went to Denis Dmitriev, representing the Rusvelo team, as he overcame The Netherlands' Jeffrey Hoogland, who finished in second.

The Netherlands had to settle for silver in the women's keirin final as Shanne Braspennincx was edged by Lin Junhong of China, while the United States' Missy Erickson won her first World Cup medal with bronze.

However, the Dutch were eventually able to celebrate a gold medal on the night through Kirsten Wild, bronze medallist in the London leg, who won the points race to win the omnium, ahead of Spain's Leire Olaberria and Germany's Anna Knauer.

The end of the Track World Cup will now see the cyclists turn their full attentions to the UCI Track World Championships, which will be held from February 18 to 22 in Paris.
