On day two of the Women's omnium at the 2015 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Paris, Caroline Ryan (pictured) finished in 15th position overall at the end of the six-event competition.

With day one featuring her stronger events, Ryan started the 500m TT in 10th place overall before dropping a few places in the sprint events. The final race of the day was the points race, where Ryan raced aggressively to pick up several points; and to come within striking distance of a top 12.

This rounded off a mixed week of racing for the Irish in a team that blended both experience and upcoming talent.

Hosts France topped the medals table a year before the Olympic Games yesterday.

France finished the championships with five gold medals.
