Australian duo win madison track World Cup gold

The Sydney Morning Herald Sports 1 week ago

Australia's Annette Edmondson and Georgia Baker have scooped gold in the women's madison at the UCI Track World Cup in Glasgow.

Edmondson and Baker finished ahead of British duo Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker and Dutch pair Amy Pieters and Kirsten Wild at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

All eyes had been on Archibald and Barker in the madison after they were part of Great Britain's gold medal-winning team in the women's team pursuit on Friday.

However, positional errors cost them as they invested too much energy closing gaps rather than challenging at the front as Edmondson and Baker dominated.

"There were moments where we avoided some crashing and carnage as a consequence of being out of position, which is bittersweet in itself," said Archibald.

"I feel we could have done better. It's positioning throughout. You can see when we invest, we're winning the sprints and it's just kind of spreading that commitment throughout so we're in position."
