New Zealand has won two more gold medals at the Track Cycling World Cup event in Cambridge.

Reigning world champion Campbell Stewart showed his class to win gold in the men’s omnium on Saturday night, while Holly Edmondston took out the women’s scratch race.

The performances led another strong night at the Avantidrome for New Zealand riders with the pairing of Michaela Drummond and Jesse Hodges also claiming bronze in the madison.

The New Zealand sprinters did not feature in the hunt for medals with Natasha Hansen and Olivia Podmore, who won the team sprint gold medal on Friday, not able to repeat their heroics in the individual sprint.

Eddie Dawkins was baulked during the keirin qualifiers and missed out on the final but dug deep with a superb solo two-lap sprint to win the consolation final for seventh.

With the team sprint men having secured their place in February’s World Championships, Dawkins has been given a spell from next week’s Brisbane World Cup, with Sam Dakin to ride with Sam Webster and Ethan Mitchell.
