Australia took gold and silver in the women's points race at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester on Tuesday.

Katherine Bates finished in the gold medal position, with compatriot Rochelle Gilmore taking silver 14 points back.

Clara Hughes of Canada won bronze to add to her gold in Saturday's time-trial.

With Alison Wright coming in fourth it was an impressive display from Australia and Bates, who won four of the 10 intermediate sprints, paid tribute to the team.

"To get first, second and fourth is fantastic," she said.

"Us three girls have been talking about this Commonwealth race for a long time.

"Team-work was definitely the key for us tonight."

Nicole Cooke of Wales was the best-placed Briton in sixth, but the multiple junior world champion was well off the pace of the leaders.
