Stam and Van Bon take early lead

Keisse and De Ketele third at two points

Danny Stam and Leon Van Bon are the first leaders of the Rotterdam Six Day after a close first evening of racing.

The Dutch pair won two events and scored points in others to set a total of 57 points. However Peter Schep and Theo Bos also scored well, picking up 56 points. They also finished on the same lap as Stam and Van Bon and so are a close second in the standings.

Belgium’s Iljo Keisse faced a race against time to compete in Rotterdam after winning a court appeal in the afternoon. However he seemed unruffled by his legal battle with the UCI and finished third with Kenny De Ketele, just two points behind the leaders.

Eight teams are all on the same lap and so the racing is set to be close and the leadership change hands several times in the next few days.
