Laura Trott brought the curtain down on a strong showing for the country’s cyclists at the Hong Kong World Cup after taking omnium gold to add to the scratch silver she claimed on Friday.

Trott, who claimed Commonwealth points race gold in 2014, beat America’s Sarah Hammer on Sunday to claim the omnium title.

The 23-year-old’s win meant an overall victory for Great Britain with Jason Kenny also taking bronze in the men’s sprint.

Trott opened an 18-point lead on Hammer after Saturday’s three events and in the decisive points race pipped the American in the last two sprints to set her up nicely for the World Championships.

“I think this track, because it's quite grippy, I think it took the steam out of everybody and it ended up just being a race where you could just follow and sit in a lot more,” Trott told British Cycling.

“I've really enjoyed it actually - I wasn't looking forward to the points race - after three days doing the team pursuit as well yesterday it really did take it out of me and I was worried how I was going to feel.

“With 20 laps to go because I'd already won I was like 'should I just attack' but it kind of left me on the back foot.

“So I thought, ‘I best just to get to the finish’ and I guess that's what I did."

Kenny, a two-time Commonwealth medallist, claimed his bronze after a brilliant win over France’s Francois Pervis over two rides.

It was a strong showing all around for Great Britain with the men’s team sprinters – Kenny, Philip Hindes and Callum Skinner – also taking gold.

Elsewhere the women’s team sprintand pursuit team won silver while the men’s pursuit team won bronze.
