Marvulli and Keisse take early Munich Six Day lead

By Susan Westemeyer

Franco Marvulli and Illjo Keisse have the lead after the first night of the Six Days of Munich. They lead on points against duo Erik Zabel and Bruno Risi. Italian road star Paolo Bettini and partner Marco Villa finished the night in 11th place, three laps down.

The whole first evening was marked by crashes. Andreas Beikirch and Lars Teutenberg both crashed in the first pursuit race. Beikirch was able to continue, but the results of the Teutenberg and partner Erik Weispfennig were neutralized, as Teutenberg was taken to the hospital with head injuries and a suspected broken collarbone.

Later in the evening Zabel and the team of Stefan Löffler and Sebastian Frey suffered crashes, but all were able to keep on riding.
