The New Zealand cycling team has picked up 2 more gold medals on the final night of the world cup track meeting in Melbourne.

The Southland teenager Tom Scully picked up his second title, teaming up with experienced Timaru rider Marc Ryan to win the 40km men's Madison.

The world silver medal winning women's team pursuit of Kaytee Boyd, Alison Shanks and Lauren Ellis got one back with an impressive display to dominate Great Britain, turning the tables on their result at the world championships.

This brought New Zealand's tally to four gold medals, a silver and a bronze in the World Cup which has also qualified a number of disciplines for next year's world championships.
