Laura Trott sealed a successful return to the boards of the Lee Valley velodrome in London on Saturday night, sweeping to win every one of the six rounds of the women's omnium.

The atmosphere in the London 2012 venue was as electric as it was when Trott won her two Olympic gold medals in the omnium and team pursuit - with a sell-out crowd marking the venue's first hosting of a top-level track event since the Games.

After his keirin victory the previous night, sprint world champion Francois Pervis continued his Revolution dominance taking the UCI sprint final against Callum Skinner. Earlier in the evening, Pervis had knocked out Jason Kenny, who duly went on to take third spot after dispensing Quentin Lafarge in the ride for bronze.

Multi-Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy was in the commentary box during the sprint finals, and confirmed to the crowd his opinion that Pervis is the current man to beat. Certainly, Pervis will leave London with a new set of fans after an entertaining performance.

Elsewhere on the night, Albert Torres took a convincing win in the UCI scratch race and Ed Clancy and Ollie Wood scorched to victory in the Elite Championship 1km Madison time trial.

Rudy Project RT won the 2013/14 Revolution Series team championship overall.
