France recorded a golden double on day two of the International Cycling Union (UCI) Track Nations Cup in Cairo as Thomas Boudat and the duo of Clara Copponi and Valentine Fortin prevailed.

Triple world silver medallist Copponi and European champion Valentine Fortin combined to take women's madison glory by a single point in the Egyptian capital.

The pair finished on 35 points after 35min 19sec in the 120-lap race to pip Denmark's Amalie Dideriksen and Julie Leth to victory.

New Zealand's Bryony Botha and Ally Wollaston were way off the pace with 24 points but it was still enough to clinch the bronze medal.

Copponi and Fortin's compatriot Thomas Boudat then eventually confirmed his men's omnium gold despite a poor showing in the final of four events.

The 2014 omnium world champion only crossed the line in 13th in the points race but his performances in the earlier scratch, tempo, and elimination races were enough to put him first overall.

He picked up 139 points over the course of the quartet and was joined on the podium by Italian Elia Viviani and Germany's Roger Kluge on 119 and 117 points, respectively.

The first non-French win of the day went to Britain's Emma Finucane.

The two-time Commonwealth Games bronze medallist beat compatriot Sophie Capewell by a minute margin of 0.003sec in the first race before a more comfortable 0.0143sec win secured the best-of-three triumph.

Germany's Olympic silver medallist Emma Hinze made up the top three as she dispatched Miriam Vece of Italy in two races.

Shinji Nakano of Japan sealed the only other men's gold on offer as he ended up victorious in a photo finish in the keirin.

Muhammad Sahrom of Malaysia and Nakano's countryman Kaiya Ota crossed the line 0.057sec and 0.073sec later, respectively.

The action continues tomorrow with gold medals set to be won in the men's madison, men's sprint, women's keirin, and women's omnium.
