    2011-2012 UCI World Cup at London's new velodrome, where the fourth and final round, which also served as a test event for the upcoming Olympic Games, ended as expected with victory for the British team. In the overall rankings for the series, Germany won with 291 points, thanks largely to wins in Astana and Cali. Defending World Cup holders France came second with 247 points, ahead of Australia with 241.

    The final assessment of the competitions held in the British capital, where cycling's popularity continues to grow, was extremely positive. The quality of the facilities that will host the Olympic events, the excellent arrangements made by LOCOG and the unique atmosphere of this weekend's competitions in the velodrome give the best possible guarantee of success for the six days that will be devoted to the Olympic track programme.
