The bad blood between Sam Gaze and Anton Cooper still lingers, despite a public apology by the Commonwealth champion.
Gaze won mountain bike gold on Thursday, pipping his fellow Kiwi and defending champion Cooper at the line.
It was a great comeback from Gaze, who had earlier suffered mechanical problems on the final of seven laps.

But he was fuming afterwards, claiming Cooper was a bad sport for trying to take advantage of his misfortune, rather than helping him replace his flat tyre.
Gaze felt he got the last laugh in the end, commenting that "good guys always win in the end".
The 22-year-old later apologised for his behaviour, but 24 hours later, he is still not out of the woods, stumbling during an interview with Newshub reporter Ollie Ritchie.
Ritchie asked Gaze if he still thought Cooper was a bad sport.
"That's a question I can't answer," Gaze replied awkwardly.
Ritchie's follow up was simple: "How come?"
Gaze sought help from his media manager, asking how to answer the question.
After a brief conversation, Gaze replied: "No comment."
