It was just a month ago Australian cyclist Cure won gold in the Women's team pursuit at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships.

The team of Cure, Annette Edmondson, Ashlee Ankudinoff and Georgia Baker beat Olympic Champions Great Britain with a time of 4:14.333 in the final.

It was a great win for Australia, having brought home a silver in 2017 after the United States took gold.

"It was an amazing feeling to get the gold," Cure said.

"We went in there and we had a time we wanted to achieve so went over there and achieved that time in qualifying.

"We were pretty happy about that and we realised that we were in with a chance for the gold medal.

"I wouldn't say we believed we couldn't do that because we knew we would be right up there, but it was a great feeling to bring home that gold medal."

It was a great result from the side just over a year out from the Olympics in Tokyo and getting a win over the World Record holders. 

However, 26-year-old Cure is fuelled to go one better at Tokyo 2020 after a high-speed crash involving the purist team happened just three days out from the competition in 2016.

The 60km/h crash left three of the team battling from hematomas, bruises and a lot of missing skin. 

The team finished qualifying in third place, giving them a much-needed rest day before they would be denied a medal opportunity after a loss to the United States.
