Olympian Martyn Irvine produced a fantastic display at the UCI World Cup in Glasgow at the weekend winning two silver medals.

The Newtownards rider, who competed for Ireland in the multi-disciplined omnium at London 2012, took part in two events in the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome and claimed his first two podium finishes in world cups to go alongside the bronze medal he won at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi for Northern Ireland two years ago in the team pursuit.

On Saturday evening Irvine was up against class opposition in the gold medal ride off in the 4km individual pursuit going head to head with Olympic omnium champion Lasse Norman Hansen.
