40th Six Days of Munich - Night Two (November 07, 2003)

The “Clash of Giants” at the Olympiahalle goes on, with a new pair at the top after the second night of racing. Defending champions Gilmore and McGrory toppled archrivals Risi and Betschart and grabbed the overall lead, although they are just two points clear of the Swiss. And another pair of strong guys, Holland’s Slippens and Stam, is no more than five points down, and they look like being well-determined to give battle.

But there’s one more pair of GC contenders: indeed all top three teams achieved the coveted 100-point mark and gained a bonus lap, but also Germany’s Kappes and Beikirch are close to hit the target, and get back on the same laps as the leaders. So don’t rule them out at all.

No good news for Brad Wiggins and French mate Sassone instead, as they lost one lap and one place in the GC. Grenoble Six champion Franco Marvulli is sitting in spot number seven, while Marty Nothstein and Robert Bartko more than doubled their previous score, and the American even established the new track record in the 200m flying time trial (he covered the distance 10’22”, that’s more than 70 km/h!!) but in spite of all this couldn’t improve their overall position.

Grenoble’s co-winner Alexander Aeschbach and South African Jean-Pierre van Zijl could, but they are still way down in the GC, as all they did was just move up one place into 14th, five points down to local favourite Jan Bratkowski and teammate Erik Weispfennig, and leave the “Lanterne Rouge” spot to Germans Dörich and Löffler.

Under 23 Franziskaner Rad Open - Night Two (November 07, 2003)

Twenty four hours after getting off to a bad start on Thursday night, young Belgians Keisse and De Fauw were back to their "usual" number one spot. It didn’t take long for the Amsterdam and Dortmund winners to take over the lead from Germans Ralph Zimmermann and Oliver Mattmann, who nevertheless are still within striking distance.

But two more other teams at least may represent a threat to the Belgian domination of the event: Leif Lampater and Sven Kraus, that gained two places, as well as Florian Piper and Andreas Welsch, who lost two, are just four points behind Keisse and De Fauw. The biggest losers of the night, in GC terms, definitely were Russians Chmidt and Ponomarov, who dramatically slipped three places to #6, and are currently trailing by sixteen points.
