Great Britain's Simon Yates marked his senior Track Cycling World Championships debut with a stunning gold in the men's points race at the Minsk Arena.
The 20-year-old from Bury rode maturely and impressively throughout the 160-lap (40-kilometre) event, which features 16 sprints, to claim a sensational victory in an event which could return to the Olympics in 2016.
He accumulated 35 points, to win by one from Eloy Teruel Rovira of Spain, with Russia's Kirill Sveshnikov third on 30 points.
Yates was in contention throughout but made his move late.
He raced for one point at the 14th sprint and continued his effort to join the lead group, distancing himself from his rivals.
