The title adds to the 27-year-old’s successful 2021, which includes Olympic Madison gold, the world omnium title and three European crowns, as well as Olympic silver in the team pursuit.
Katie will be hoping to build on that success at the Commonwealth Games in 2022, with the potential to add to her previous medal successes at Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018.
