Edmondsons dominate cycling national championships

CYCLING: Christmas has come early for the Edmondson family, with siblings Alex and Annette dominating the omnium and madison national championships in Melbourne.

Despite a recent sinus operation, Annette rode into the record books by becoming the first woman to win three national titles in the six-discpline event.

She backed that up by joining with fellow South Australian Jess Mundy to claim the inaugural madison crown, Edmondson needing a win in the final sprint to hold off Josie Talbot and Ashlee Andkudinoff.

In the men's madison, also being held for the first time, Alex Edmondson and countryman Luke Davison were third across the line, but were awarded the national title because the first two pairs were from overseas.

The result followed Alex's win in the omnium when the 19-year-old outpointed 2011 winner Scott Law and South Australia's Miles Scotson.
