Track - Six Days of Grenoble: Final Results !!
 

Final overall victory, in Grenoble's "Palais des Sports", for Italian veterans Adriano Baffi (40-year-old !) and Marco Villa (33), who edged out Swiss contenders, and last year's winners, Alexander Aeschbach and Franco Marvulli by 21 points (328 to 307). Local riders Jean Michel Tessier and Robert Sassone took third place, finishing one lap behind the winners. Fourth place overall for South Africans Hunter and van Zyl, just ahead of World Champions Franck Perque and Jérôme Neuville, while Australian Luke Roberts and Belgian mate Steven De Neef eventually ranked seventh, 14 laps down to Baffi and Villa.

Much better news for Oz coming from two other competitions: Aussies Sean Eadie and Jobie Dajka took the Scratch and Keirin contests respectively. The recently crowned World sprint Champion from NSW edged out France's Florian Rousseau (runner-up in Scratch and Golden Sprint this time, runner-up in the same competitions last year ... is he the transalpine response to Davide Rebellin ?) by a 7-point margin (48-41).

Adelaide cycling sensation Dajka (also World Keirin Champion in Denmark two months ago, where he even was runner-up to Eadie in the Sprint competition), twelve years younger than Sean Eadie, won a close battle against another french, Arnaud Tournant, that repeated last year's second place in this event.

The local stars were a bit disappointing: they lost the above mentioned contests, and never were actual threats to the Villa and Baffi duo in the main race. The only satisfaction for french fans came from Tournant's comfortable victory in the "Golden Sprint": just like in the past edition, he beat fellow countryman Rousseau. Gané's third place completed an all-French podium, with Eadie taking fourth ahead of Britain's Craig MacLean.
