Annie Last won a superb gold medal in the women’s mountain bike at the Commonwealth Games as teammate Evie Richards claimed silver on the Gold Coast.
The medals are England’s first-ever in women’s mountain biking.
The Great Britain Cycling Team duo were a class apart from their rivals, with Richards and Last bursting away from the rest of the field on the opening lap.
It was the younger rider, current junior cyclo-cross world champion Richards who made the first move, leading the way for the opening 9km.
But Last - a silver medal winner at last year’s UCI Mountain Bike World Championships - overtook Richards and never looked back, soloing to a famous victory in 1:18.02.
Richards, equally composed throughout, crossed the line 48 seconds behind to win a fantastic silver medal.
Scotland’s Isla Short finished fifth, 3:32 behind Last’s time.
In the men’s race, Frazer Clacherty finished fifth in his first-ever elite race on the world stage.
The Englishman was the best-place home nations rider in a strong field, finishing 1:38 behind race winner Samuel Gaze of New Zealand, who pipped teammate Anton Cooper to gold in a photo finish in a time of 1:17.36.
Clacherty’s Great Britain Cycling Team colleague Cameron Orr - representing Northern Ireland - finished eighth, with 2016 Olympian Grant Ferguson (Scotland) and Nicholas Corbett (Isle of Man) completing the top ten.
Dylan Kerfoot-Robson (Wales), James Roe (Guernsey), Rhys Hidrio (Jersey), Michael Serafin (Guernsey), Marc Potts (Northern Ireland), Andrew Colver (Guernsey) and Oliver Lowthorpe (Jersey) all finished from 11th to 21st.
