As with the race’s Revolution Series debut in London, competitors had to perform a track stand on the straight for up to four minutes, before springing into action
The women were given a half-lap head start, with Coster holding her nerve, and her track stand, to cross the line first.
Rowe’s fellow Team Sky rider Peter Kennaugh finished second in the Points Race, while Frenchman Francois Pervis won the men’s sprint event.
Trott extended her winning streak at Revolution to 19 races, with victory in the Points Race and the Australian Pursuit, but that came to an end in the Longest Lap.
The Olympic gold medalist went on to win the Elimination Race, but came third in the Scratch Race.
TV highlights of Round 2 will be shown on Channel 4 next Saturday morning (November 29) at 06:40 or 07:40 on C4+1 and then will be available to view online on 4OD.
