Earlier, Hayter and Wood, 22, spent almost all of the madison out of the medals but the 10 points they took for a late attack to win the race-ending sprint was enough to overhaul Spain.They finished on 38 points, with Belgium (60) winning the gold medal and Germany (49) finishing second."It's been better than I could have expected and I'm really happy with it," Hayter told BBC Sport. "It's the first time I've ridden with Ollie so we've done pretty well."Wood added: "I was going hard on the front and I saw some clean air behind me, so we just went on and powered through to the line."The madison is a bunch race with teams of two competing. Both riders are on the track but only one is active at any one time, with riders tagging each other by hand.Katie Archibald, who has already won a gold and silver for Britain, will go for a third medal in the women's omnium.
