Mundy, King rule madison

FIRST time team-mates Jess Mundy and Bella King won Saturday night's women's madison at the Bendigo International Madison athletics-cycling carnival.

Just days after returning from winning bronze in the teams pursuit at the world track titles in Colombia, King again ruled Bendigo's track.

The Regional Academy Cycling Excellence and TDT Training-backed classic was raced at a fast pace.

The 60-lap madison was contested by eight teams and a highlight of women's night.

After being declared a lap down after King's early puncture, the SASI Marketing-sponsored team was later reinstated on equal laps.

Mundy and King then went on to dominate the last five sprints and finished on 40 points.

Runners-up were world points score champion Amy Cure and Ashlee Ankudinoff, 26, ahead of Bendigo's Tayla Evans and Macedon's Lauretta Hanson on 16.

For King it was back-to-back victories in the Bendigo Madison.

"I am absolutely stoked," said King, who won in 2013 with Ankudinoff.

A fifth-year medical student in WA, King put in another clinical performance in Bendigo.

Mundy is in the South Australia Sports Institute and one of the country's most exciting prospects.
