Jeffrey Hoogland conquered gold on Friday with force majeure in the 1 kilometer time trial at the Track Cycling World Championships in Roubaix.

Earlier in the evening Vincent Hoppezak surprised with bronze in the points race.

Hoogland had already qualified fastest for the final and more than lived up to his favorite status.

He came last in action and clocked a time of 58.418.

The difference with the other podium customers was enormous.

Nicholas Paul from Trinidad and Tobago took the silver with a difference of more than one and a half seconds (59.791) and the bronze went to the German Joachim Eilers, who clocked 1.00.008.

It is for Hoogland already his third medal of this World Cup.

Earlier, he took gold in the team sprint with Harrie Lavreysen and Roy van den Berg and drove to silver on the keirin.

Hoppezak finished with a total of 35 points in the points race.

The gold went to Frenchman Benjamin Thomas, who collected 94 points.

The Belgian Kenny De Ketele had ten points less and took silver.

Earlier this month, Hoppezak already made a name for himself at the European Championships in Grenchen, Switzerland.

He stunted there on his debut among the elite with a silver medal in the scratch section.

Maike van der Duin finished eighth in the third part of the omnium, the elimination race.

Earlier she also finished eighth on the scratch and thirteenth in the tempo race.

The points race will follow later in the day.

Thanks to Hoogland and Hoppezak, the Netherlands now has six medals: three times gold, two times silver and one time bronze.

The World Cup lasts until Sunday.
