Rio Olympic bronze medalist Allison Beveridge (Rally Cycling) won her second title of the Championships with a strong performance in the final Points Race, moving up from fourth. Kinley Gibson (The Cyclery-4iiii) took second and Annie Foreman-Mackey (Sho-Air Twenty20) third. The race was marred by a crash that took out Jasmin Duehring (Sho-Air Twenty20) and Ariane Bohomme (Ther Cyclery-4iiii), who had been tied for the lead going into the final event. Bonhomme could not continue due to a broken bike, and Duehring's repairs took so long she lost 40 points due to the number of laps she was out. The men's Omnium saw a dominant Derek Gee (Team Race Clean) take the title after lapping the field four times in the Points Race, to win with 204 points. Ed Veal (RealDeal Racing) held on for second with 173 points, while Emile de Rosnay of Victoria, BC, jumped up from seventh to take the bronze medal.
