Danish riders Alex Rasmussen and Michael Mørkøv won the Copenhagen Six Days by snatching the lead from Dutch riders Danny Stam and Peter Schep in the final night. Rasmussen/Mørkøv were equal on laps in the end with Stam/Schep, but had amassed almost 100 more points (254 versus 158). The lap gain came only thanks to the rule of lap gains every 100 points.

The Danes started the night with 199 points, so made up the lap almost immediately. Despite strong efforts from the Dutch pair, this was enough for Rasmussen/Mørkøv to win the event.

The showdown came in the final Madison, where Rasmussen/Mørkøv prevailed with 24 points over Robert Bartko/Leif Lampater (Germany, 22 points) and Stam/Schep, who had 12 points. All other pairs ended at least one lap behind.

Full results of the final day are here.
