The New Zealand men's pursuit team have taken the bronze medal at the track cycling World Championships in Colombia.

The New Zealand team of Pieter Bulling, Dylan Kennett, Aaron Gate and Marc Ryan were too quick for Russia in the bronze medal race.

Australia took the gold medal, beating Denmark in the final.

New Zealand are guaranteed another medal, with the New Zealand men's sprint team riding for gold later this afternoon.

They were the fastest qualifiers and will meet the defending world champions Russia in the final.
