PROUDLY sporting his rainbow jersey, reigning world champion Glenn O’Shea won silver in the men’s omnium at the second leg of the UCE track cycling world series in Glasgow.
O’Shea’s second placing was one of four achieved by the Australian track cycling team.
The cycling star from Eaglehawk won the points race and achieved top three placings in the flying lap, individual pursuit and elimination race.
But Germany’s Lucas Liss, who led at one event to go, proved too strong in the time trial and captured the coveted gold medal ahead of O’Shea, a dual winner of the bankmecu-backed Bendigo Advertiser-WIN Television Sports Star of the Year award.
Other Australian cyclists to win silver in Glagsow were Sydney’s Ashlee Ankudinoff in the women’s omnium; Peter Lewis in the keirin; and Ankudinoff, Amy Cure and Melissa Hoskins in the teams pursuit.
A silver medallist in the teams pursuit and fifth in the ominium at the London Olympics, O’Shea will now prepare to contest the six-day track classics in Ghent and Zurich.
