Campbell Flakemore and Macey Stewart gave Australia a golden double at the cycling World Championships in Ponferrada, Spain on Monday.
Flakemore won the men`s under-23 timetrial event, beating Ireland`s Ryan Mullan by just half a second, with Switzerland`s Stefan Kueng, the last rider away, snatching third.
Teenager Stewart won the women`s junior 13.9km timtrial event ahead of Denmark`s Pernille Mathiesen by almost 11sec while another Aussie, Anna-Leeza Hull pipped teammate Alexandra Manly, third last year, by just half a second for the bronze.
Flakemore, who came fourth a year ago, put in a blistering sprint finish on the 36.15km course to wrench the gold medal out of a clearly disappointed Mullen`s hands.
But there was more disappointment for Portugal`s Rafael Reis, who had long been sitting in a podium position but saw his medal hopes go up in smoke as Flakemore and Kueng came home as two of the last three riders.
