Great Britain's biggest hope for gold on Thursday comes in the men's team pursuit, where Ethan Hayter, Ed Clancy, Kian Emadi and Charlie Tanfield are the reigning champions following their superb race in Apeldoorn last year - and a win for Clancy would see him claim his sixth rainbow jersey in the event.
Jack Carlin is expected to represent GB in the men's keirin following his promising performances in the World Cup event in London in December, and we will also have the finals of the men's 15km scratch race and action from the quarter-finals of the women's individual sprint.

The Track Cycling World Championships have been held every year since 1893 and see the best indoor cyclists from across the globe come together to compete in ten disciplines over five days.
Events range from the gruelling omnium, which sees competitors involved in four different races in a single day, to the lightning-fast time trials.
The winners of each event are crowned world champions and awarded the iconic rainbow jersey, which they can wear during races for the next year to mark their achievement.
The event is being held for the second time in Pruzskow, near the Polish capital of Warsaw, and Great Britain’s 21-strong team will be hoping to improve upon their two gold medals won in the 2018 edition in the Netherlands.
Britons competing this year include former champions Laura and Jason Kenny, reigning madison champions Katie Archibald and Emily Nelson, and Vicky Williamson, returning to the velodrome nearly three years after sustaining serious injuries in a horrific crash.
You can watch live coverage from all five days of the Track Cycling World Championships on the BBC. Action from the first four days will be shown on the BBC Red Button and on the BBC Sport website, while the final day of the competition will be broadcast live on BBC Two, with all of the coverage being available live and on catch-up on the iPlayer.
