THE grudge match between Switzerland's Franco Marvulli and South Australia's Alex Edmondson continued to the final seconds of last night's Devonport carnival.
Two days after the controversial finish to the Latrobe Wheel in which Edmondson's win was overturned following Marvulli's protest, the pair were again shoulder to shoulder at the end of the final event at Devonport Oval, the 16,000-metre A-grade scratch race.
A photo finish was needed to determine that Edmondson was again first across the line with fellow South Australian Jack Bobridge just pipping Marvulli for second.
Scott Sunderland added to South Australia's swag of wins with a final 200m burst of 14.21 to claim the keirin from West Australian Nick Yallouris and Edmondson.
Tasmanians dominated the lightning handicaps with front markers Cuan van Staden (90m) and John Kingston (85m) first across the line in the men's 1000m from South Australian Joshua Harrison.
Victorian Shannon McCurley split four Tasmanians in the women's race won by West Pine's Amy Cure with fellow scratch rider Georgia Baker, of Perth, third, Hobart's Janelle Smith fourth and Macey Stewart fifth.
McCurley went one better by claiming the A-grade scratch race, leading home the junior world championship quartet of Cure, Baker, Stewart and Josie Talbot in 5:34.75.
Stewart added the invitation miss-and-out with a timely last- lap burst to beat home Cure and South Australian Alexandra Manly.
