Sir Chris Hoy has spoken to ITV News about his triumph in the Men's Keirin Final on Tuesday.
He said he had been "blown away" by the whole day and it was "the greatest experience of my whole career".
He added: "This is what you train for, and aspire to achieve but when you actually do it is very hard to take it all in."
Victoria Pendleton spoke to ITV News after coming second in the Olympic sprint final to Australia's Anna Meares. It was her last ever race before she retires.
She said that she was happy with her silver and earlier gold medal for the keirin.
She added that it was definitely the right time to bow out, saying "it was an amazing atmosphere in there [The Velodrome], I'll never experience anything quite like it again."
Laura Trott has underlined her billing as the future star of British cycling with two Olympic gold medals in the women's team pursuit and omnium.
As her family photos reveal, the 20-year-old was already brushing shoulders with Team GB's established Olympians well before she joined the elite.
Sir Steve Redgrave joked he was set for a "comeback" after Sir Chris Hoy surpassed his five Olympic gold medals.
Sir Chris told the BBC that Sir Steve was "an inspiration" and "that to be mentioned in the same sentence as this guy (Sir Steve) is just incredible".
