Track Cycling: 66th Grosser Weihnachtspreis
 

66. Großer Weihnachtspreis
(Westfalenhallen, Dortmund - Germany) - December 26, 2002

European Track cycling resumed on Thursday, December the 26th in Germany, with the sixty-sixth edition of "Großer Weihnachtspreis", a traditional contest held in the city of Dortmund (that also hosted a 6-day event in November), this time in front of an impressive crowd of 11,000. The two competitions disputed in the "Westfalen Hallen" were marked by as many german wins, with "Team Deutschland" (also featuring Erik Zabel, back on track after a long absence) edging past the multinational "European" (1 Swiss, an Italian, a Dutch contender plus Denmark's Jimmi Madsen) squad, winning by one point (67-66). In the "Stayers World Cup" Andreas Beikirch repeated last year's victory, ahead of fellow Germans Andreas Kappes (his usual teammate in six-day events) and Carsten Podlesch.

The "Track cycling circus" will get back to Six Days in Janujary, with no less than three German races: the "Sechstage von Bremen" (January 9-14), followed by the races in Stuggart (January 17-22) and Berlin (January 18-23, with the starting gun likely to be fired by movie star Peter Ustinov).

Omnium der Asse - Results:

1. Germany (Erik Zabel; Rolf Aldag; Jens Lehmann; Gerd Dörich; Jan van Eijden) - 67 points

2. Europe (Franco Marvulli; Silvio Martinello; Robert Slippens; Jimmi Madsen) - 66 points
