The new Six-Days' "Dream Team" of Erik Zabel and Bruno Risi brought home their first victory in a start-to-finish win in the Six Days of Dortmund. They won with two laps advantage over Guido Fulst and Leif Lampater. Third place went to Danny Stam and Andreas Beikirch, four laps back.

"That looked easier than it was," Zabel told the German press agency "sid". The German was the strongest rider in the race, as his partner Risi acknowledged: "It was an honor for me, to achieve this victory with Erik."
