Track Cycling: Six Days of Dortmund - Day 4 UPDATED
 

First of all, we have to correct a mistake; in the Night 3 Report (see link down in the page), we wrote that Britain’s Robert Hayles and American Marty Nothstein were among those who pulled out of the race on Saturday. But it seems that it wasn’t true, as reportedly the two English-speaking riders were back on track on Sunday afternoon, as they joined their respective team-mates (Brad Wiggins and Matthew Gilmore) and took part in the fourth day of the Dortmund Six.

A day that saw Aldag and McGrory maintain the overall lead, and Germany’s Kappes and Beikirch, winners of the 2002 edition, move up into second overall after they were awarded a bonus lap as they achieved the 200-point score. Switzerland’s Risi and Betschart lost one place and dropped to thrid overall, although they are just six points away from getting 200 points, and gaining the coveted bonus lap to would take the “Alpen Express” back into to top spot.

No changes in the following places, with Slippens and Stam still one lap down to the podium teams (and quite far from the 200-point mark too), while the rest of the field, led by Denmark’s Madsen and Sandstød, have close to zero chances of a podium finish. Gilmore and Nothstein are currently ranked sixth, while Germany’s Frank Kowatschitsch and Daniel Palicki have abandoned the race.

The battle among the Top 3 riders continues in the Stayer Championship: Germany’s Stefan Klare claimed the first leg of the day and maintained a 1-point lead over Carsten Podlesch, winner of the second leg, and Peter Jörg. The three other contenders are more than 10 points down in the GC.

Besides the above mentioned competitions, another contest took place in the “Westfalenhalle”: Round 2 of the “UIV Madison Cup”, run by the Union Internationale des Velodromes and reserved for Under 23 riders. Just like in Amsterdam, home to last week’s opening leg of the series, the race was dominated by Belgians Iljo Keisse and Dimitri de Fauw, that took two legs (Friday’s and Sunday’s) with Russia’s Chmidt and Ponomarov snatching second overall, and Amsterdam’s runners-up Larsen and Berling of Denmark, who also won Saturday’s second leg in Dortmund, filling the remaining podium place. The series is scheduled to continue in Munich, Gent, Bremen, Stuttgart and Berlin.
