Scotson and Meyer repeat the trick with World Cup Madison win
06 November 2017
For Callum Scotson and Cameron Meyer, there’s no such thing as a Six Day London hangover.
Just a week after standing high atop the Lee Valley VeloPark podium, the pair were at it once again at the Track World Cup in Poland, Madison marvels after another stunning day of racing.
As if that wasn’t enough, one cursory glance down the top ten would have shown you one thing: a plethora of Six Day London talent.

Victorious for the first time in the capital, Scotson and Meyer showed themselves to be far from one-trick ponies, taking top spot in Pruszkow with a supreme performance befitting their track board trophy status.
Familiar faces were on the back of their wheels throughout however, with Belgian supremos Kenny de Ketele and Moreno de Pauw in second place, while Benjamin Thomas rounded off the podium with Florian Maitre.
Add a fourth place for Six Day London’s Albert Torres and Sebastian Mora Vedri and fifth for Mark Downey and Felix English, debutants in the capital this year, and it’s fair to say there was some dominance from those who wowed the crowds in London.
“It feels really great for us to come away this year and get some wins together as a team,” said Scotson, silver medallist at the 2016 World Cup in Glasgow and World Championships.
“Last year we were close to the mark but we have really been longing to stand on the top step of the podium together.

“We knew we had to play to our strength, which at the moment is certainly our endurance.
“With a shorter race than the full distance it was a bit of a gamble to wait and be patient, but we knew when we attacked we had to make it count.”
Niklas Larsen was among those tasting the champagne too in Poland, the Dane starring in the omnium to take top spot, while Kirsten Wild shone in the women’s equivalent.
Emily Nelson, winner of the inaugural Six Day London Madison alongside Neah Evans, showed her form again to take silver with Elinor Barker, gutted to miss out in London due to illness.
Barker was to also narrowly miss out in the omnium, finishing fourth, while Evans joined forces with Nelson, Emily Kay and Manon Lloyd to take team pursuit bronze.
The Track World Cup heads to Manchester this weekend, and with Katie Archibald back on the boards, you wouldn’t bet against there being even more to celebrate.
