France duo Vivien Brisse and Morgan Kneisky won madison gold at the world track cycling championships here on Sunday.

Spain (David Mutaner/Albert Torres) took silver and Germany (Henning Bommel/Theo Reinhardt) the bronze.

The three medal-claiming teams opened up a one lap advantage on their rivals in the closing quarter of the 200-lap race.

Defending champions Kenny De Ketele et Gijs Van Hoecke of Belgium came in eighth.

The last French pair to claim this event which has disappeared from the Olympic menu at the world championships was Jerome Neuville and Franck Perque at Copenhagen in 2002.
