Track Cycling: Six Days of Munich - Night 4
 



40th Six Days of Munich - Night Four (November 09, 2003)

Bruno Risi and Kurt Betschart hold onto the lead on Sunday, and even managed to put some more points out of their closest rivals, reigning champions McGrory and Gilmore and Holland’s Slippens and Stam. But the big news of the day was no doubt the “comeback” of Andreas Kappes and Andreas Beikirch: albeit they couldn’t better their overall position, the Germans had a great performance in the fourth day of racing, and got back to the same number of laps as the top three teams. And with just 21 points between them and the leading pair, one can’t help but regarding them as more dangerous than ever for all other GC contenders.

Also Brad Wiggins and Robert Sassone could become serious threats, provided they surpassed the 200-point mark and gained a bonus lap, but at the moment the guys are still far from hitting the target, with “only” 147 points scored, 57 less than Villa and Marvulli, who moved ahead of the Franco-British duo in the Overall Standings. Marty Nothstein and Robert Bartko added 42 further points to their tally, but didn’t move up in the GC. They didn’t lose any place either anyway. Grenoble Six winner Alexander Aeschbach and South Africa’s Jean Pierre van Zijl are still at the bottom of the table.

Just like the “Alpen Express” did in the main competition, also Iljo Keisse and Dimitri De Fauw slightly strengthened their grip on the overall lead in the Under 23 race (“Franziskaner Rad Open”). The Belgians are a dozen points clear of Leif Lampater and Sven Kraus, who moved up one place into second on Sunday. Zimmermann and Mattmann made some progress in the GC too, as they fought back to regain a podium spot. That’s bad news for former runners-up Florian Piper and Andreas Welsch, who slipped to fifth. Denmark’s Michael Smith Larsen and Michael Berling, e.g.Keisse and De Fauw’s closest challengers in the UIV Cup Overall, made some gains and are currently sitting in fourth place.
