The cyclists were determined not to let Lisa Carrington have all the fun with the medals on Thursday.

Ellesse Andrews placed second in the Women’s Keirin, followed by Campbell Stewart with another silver in the Men’s Omnium.

Stewart was a replacement for an injured Aaron Gate.

Cycling NZ CEO Jacques Landry says the successes of yesterday won’t affect the funding for Cycling NZ up until the 2024 Olympics.

“When the pandemic hit, a lot of the sports were assured that at least 70 percent of our funding would be confirmed up until Paris.”
