World Cup Cambridge – last day

New Zealand hosts top medal table at UCI Track Cycling World Cup

The host nation finished with eight medals, and a win in the 50 kilometres madison event by Campbell Stewart and Aaron Gate at the Avantidrome brought their total of golds to five – the most of any nation in the fourth of this season’s World Cup series.

Up against Australian rivals Kelland O’Brien and Cameron Meyer, the New Zealanders attacked early to put a lap on the field, before their rivals from across the Tasmann Sea responded to draw level as the pair lapped the field again, and then put the pressure on the hosts. But Stewart and Gate – both omnium world champions – held on and then lapped the field for a fourth and final time. The Kiwis’ four laps on the field, as well as six sprint wins and points in 14 of the other 20 sprints meant they finished with 129 points, with Australia 42 points back, and Italy’s Michele Scartezzini and Francesco Lamon third on 57.
