The Boys were up next for a Points Race which saw Gabriel Cullaigh open the scoring for NetApp Endura from Joe Evans of Rudy Project, Sean McGovern of Rouleur and Joe Wiltshire of Howies. The two battling for top honours overall headed the second sprint with Moody just head of Robbins, with Joe Holt of IG Sigmasport and Cullaigh picking up the other points.

That left Cullaigh on top of the leaderboard with Moody just a point behind and Robbins and Evans two points further back, tied for third. Evans moved to the top of the leaderboard after sprint 3 which finished in a one-two with his team mate Jacob Kelly. Jack Hoyle and Joe Fry of Rapha Condor Sharp provided another one-two for the minor points.

Evans was two points clear of Cullaigh going in to the final sprint where Rotherham again showed his strength in the final lap to take the final 5 points ahead of Leon Gledhill of Sportcover, James Shaw of Sky and Gledhill’s team mate Moody.

That was enough to ensure victory for Evans with Moody taking second place ahead of Cullaigh and Rotherham.

Back to the Women’s Omnium and a great solo effort from Team Specialzed-Lululemon’s Katie Colclough was enough to take the win – although by the line she had Vos breathing down her neck closely followed – impressively – by last year’s DHL Future Stars winner Emily Kay, who took third ahead of Roberts. Armitstead was fifth, leaving Vos the clear leader in the overall competition.

The Men’s Points Race opened with a win for Simon Yates of Maxgear Racing from Joe Kelly of Face Partnership, Alex Dowsett of Sky and NetApp Endura’s Russell Downing. Robert Bengsch of Rudy Project took the second sprint with Clancy separating him from his team mate Kalz and Rowe taking the last point for Sky.

Clancy took sprint 3 to head the leaderboard from Bengsch, Yates and Rowe who picked up the second place ahead of Owain Doull of Howies and Dowining. But it was Rowe who took the win from Clancy, Yates and the consistent Bengsch having beaten Andy Tennant of Rapha Condor Sharp in the final charge for the line with Yates and Doull rounding out the scoring across the line.
