De Ketele and Risi win in Hasselt

Belgian Kenny de Ketele and Swiss rider Bruno Risi won the Hasselt Six Days, one lap ahead of four teams. Leon van Bon / Leif Lampater finished second and Tim Mertens / Franco Marvulli rounded out the podium – a podium spot that Australian duo Glenn O'Shea / Leigh Howard only missed by eight points. They came ahead of the Dutch Six Day regulars Danny Stam / Peter Schep.

The race in Hasselt ended on Sunday with De Ketele/Risi taking three wins, in the team elimination, the derny final and the Madison final. The Madsion race is where the pair sealed victory. Trailing in points, De Ketele and Risi would have ended in fifth place overall without the lap gain.
