Bobby Lea (Mertztown, Pa./Custom Velo) and Jacob Duehring (Irvine, Calif./GS Ciao-Horizon Organic-Einstein Brothers Cycling) teamed up to win the gold medal in the men's Madison. It marked Lea's second gold medal and third overall medal of the event after winning the gold in Thursday's individual pursuit and earning the bronze medal in Friday's men's 30km points race.
The effort of Lea and Duehring bested the Colombian team of Jordan Parra and Jonathan Restrepo which placed second, and the bronze-medal team of Marcos Crespo and Walter Fernando Perez of Argentina.
In the women's omnium, Jennifer Valente (San Diego, Calif./TWENTY16 Pro Cycling) took the bronze medal for her second podium appearance of the week.
