Paris: Russian Artur Ershov emerged victorious at the end of a bewildering 160 laps in the men`s points race at the World Track Cycling Championships on Friday.

Ershov was one of five riders to gain a lap on the pack and the medals came from among them.

Spain`s Eloy Teruel took silver, his third podium finish in a row, and Germany`s Maximilian Beyer came in third.

New Zealand`s Regan Gough missed out on a medal by the narrowest of margins having matched Beyer`s 29-point haul.
