Australia Wins Two Gold At Cycling World Cup

Australia started the Melbourne round of the World Cup track cycling series with two gold medals as records tumbled at Hisense Arena.

Australian world champions Josie Tomic and Sarah Kent joint with comeback rider Kate Bates to set a national all-comers record as they won the 3000m team pursuit, pulling away from Germany in a exciting final.

Reigning world champions Cameron Meyer and Leigh Howard then won Australia's second gold medal when they starred in the 40km madison.

Their time of three minutes and 24.244 seconds is an Australian all-comers record, breaking the 3:24.771 set by New Zealand at this occasion a year ago.

Germany was second-best in qualifying with 3:24.813 and will meet Australia in final.
