Track Cycling: Six Days of Dortmund - Night 2

The “Alpen Express” maintained the lead also at the end night 2 in Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle, but they’d better watch out for the German stars (and an Aussie too).

Indeed, Team Telekom‘s veteran Rolf Aldag, aiming for a seventh win on this track, and Australian partner Scott McGrory, are getting better and better. In Friday’s session, held in front of a crowd of 10,000, they worked well together to pick up enough points to become top scorers and, more important, move up one place into second overall. As a further sign of the perfect agreement between the two, at the end of the session Aldag was full of praises for his partner from OZ.

Also title-holders Andreas Kappes and Andreas Beikirch could be satisfied with their performance, as they rode to a podium spot on Friday. The biggest losers of the second night were Holland’s Danny Stam and Robert Slippens, that slipped into fourth place. But the winners of the first 6-Day in the 2003/2004 winter season will be given a chance of redemption on Saturday when, by achieving a 100-point score (they just need 9), they could gain a bonus lap and be back on the same lap as Risi and Betschart.

Marty Nothstein and Aussie-Belgian Matt Gilmore lost three laps and two places, and are currently sitting in spot number eight. They still are in a better situation than Bradley Wiggins and Robert Hayles, who didn’t improve their overall position at all, anyway.

No changes at the top of the “Stayers Championships”: despite not winning either of Friday’s legs, Switzerland’s Peter Jörg is still leading red hot favourite Carsten Podlesch (winner of one of the two legs) of Germany by two points. Some changes took place more down in the ranking though, as the other winner of the day, Jan Richter, moved up into third overall, while Holland’s de Jager lost no less than three places and is now sitting in the “red lantern” spot.
