Cameron Meyer and Callum Scotson carried their Six Day London winning form into the opening Track World Cup to claim the first of four medals for Australia. The duo took gold in the madison before Matthew Glaetzer won the sprint, and Stephanie Morton added silver in the sprint, and bronze in the keirin.
The results ensured all four members of the team for the Pruszków World Cup, the first five in the 2017-18 season, take home a medal.
Currently racing a winter track programme with one eye on the Commonwealth Games in April, Meyer and Scotson enjoyed a two-point win over Belgium with France third in the madison
“It feels really great for us to come away this year and get some wins together as a team. Last year we were close to the mark but we have really been longing to stand on the top step of the podium together,” said Scotson of his first madison gold medal.
“We knew we had to play to our strength, which at the moment is certainly our endurance. With a shorter race than the full distance it was a bit of a gamble to wait and be patient, but we knew when we attacked we had to make it count.”
While the Track World Cup continues next weekend in Manchester over the weekend of 10-12 November, the duo won’t be racing. Instead, just Glaetzer and Morton will be representing the green and gold.
