They warned their male counterparts to keep it down and let them have a decent night sleep and it worked for the Great Britain women's pursuit team.

The female members of Team GB appeared to be in no mood for joining the after-party, after Bradley Wiggins, Edward Clancy, Steven Burke and Owain Doull secured gold in a world record ride on Saturday (NZT).

The women left a hilarious note on their door warning the boys to stay away.

Doull took to Twitter to post a picture of a letter pinned to the girls' room, warning the victorious men's team to stay out.

"To the team pursuit men, CONGRATULATIONS! As we're guessing you're probably going to be drunk by the time you read this," the note read.

"And a few of you have already come into our room accidentally - just a friendly reminder that THIS IS NOT YOUR ROOM.

"So please don't try and get in a 4am."

The women's team pursuit, made up of Joanna Rowsell-Shand, Laura Trott, Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker, backed up the men's performance by defeating the USA in the gold medal ride yesterday. They also broke the world record on the process.

Cycling teammate Rebecca James also produced a silver in the kieran to complete a successful day for the British female riders.
