BikeNZ examining points race

New Zealand cycling officials are examining a tape of last Friday's Commonwealth Games points race after suggestions that Hayden Roulston may have missed out on a gold medal due to a scoring error, according to a report in the New Zealand Herald.

BikeNZ endurance coach Terry Gyde received a video of Friday's race yesterday after television commentator Phil Liggett raised fears that Australian winner Sean Finning was wrongly awarded a 20-point bonus that should have gone to teammate Peter Dawson, meaning that Finning's total of 137 points would be 117 - two less than silver medallist Roulston.

"We're checking to see if there was a mistake but at this stage we're not too excited about it," said BikeNZ media officer Ted Jones, who is currently looking at possible courses of action if an error has been made.
