Canada's Allison Beveridge won her secondtrack cycling World Cup silver medal in as many days on Saturday in the women's omnium in Cambridge, New Zealand.

After winning silver on Friday in team pursuit, Beveridge was Canada's entry on the four-event Omnium less than 24 hours later. She was fourth in the scratch race, second in the tempo and fourth in the elimination for 106 points, putting her eight points behind Australia's Annette Edmonson going into the final event.

Edmonson hung on to win the overall omnium with 131 points to Beveridge's 123.

"It's been a positive campaign for the WTE [women's track endurance] squad," said Beveridge. "We are showing good progression in the team pursuit. For me on a personal level, to now have two podiums in the Omnium this World Cup season is great. I feel I'm starting to get my legs back after a difficult period with a few setbacks and challenges."

In other competition, Hugo Barrette finished sixth in the men's keirin.
