Danes shine in Dortmund

Danish pair Michael Mørkøv and Alex Rasmussen continued to make upward progress in the Six Day ranks, and took over the lead in the Dortmund Six Day on night two. The back-to-back winners of the Grenoble Six Day overturned the lead of Erik Zabel and Leif Lampater, who are now tied for second with fellow Germans Robert Bartko and Andreas Beikirch.

Bartko and Beikirch put themselves onto the lead lap with a strong performance in the first Madison, while Amsterdam Six Day winners Danny Stam and Robert Slippens gained points but remained a lap down on the lead three duos after their win in the night's second Madison.

The big losers of the night were former world champions Bruno Risi and Franco Marvulli who ended the evening five laps down. Marvulli fell ill, according to, and could not hold the pace.
