Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Nettie Edmondson won her second rainbow jersey of the 2015 UCI World Track Championships with a stunning victory in the six-race Omnium event. Having already won the World title with Australia in the Team Pursuit, the 23-year-old Adelaidean took the lead in the two-day competition after three of the six events, then utterly dominated the second day of the competition with victory in all three of the remaining races.
Edmondson’s final total of 192 points was good enough to give her a massive 16-point cushion over former Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling athlete, Olympic Champion Laura Trott of Great Britain, while the Netherlands’ Kirsten Wild was just one point further behind in third place.
Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Belgian Champion Jolien D’hoore narrowly missed out on a Bronze Medal, having sat in a podium position for much of the competition, as she was nudged into fourth place by Wild in the final Points Race.
