Welsford wins a thriller.

What a race.

Hayter attacked with 10 to go and was caught in the final bend.

Meyer the super teammate, who went punch for punch with Hayter over those final 10 laps to bring the gap back.

Welsford took over with 1.5 laps to go, slowly wound up the diesel engine, and then let it rip with 150 to go. What power.

20 laps done and now real attacks yet.

Welsford looks like the key helper. He will do most of the turns.

Meyer is hitting them every five laps with a really hard turn.

Howard conserving energy.

2018 Commonwealth Games: Track Cycling Night 3 finals live updates, blog

6 laps down and altogether.

Race is underway.

Archibald was superb in the IP last night, but l really can’t go past an Aussie to win. Cameron Meyer will call the shots; he is a brilliant tactician in the endurance events. Best in the business.

The Scratch is first past the post after 60 laps.

Anything can happen.

Will it be a final sprint, or will an attack get away?
