Cameron Meyer and Leigh Howard have taken out their first Berlin Six Day, the madison world champions showing just why they're the best in the discipline on an exciting final day of racing.
Iljo Keisse and Kenny de Ketele went into the final night with a handy points lead, but showed fatigue from an intense five night previous, and fell away to third. Franco Marvulli meanwhile continues to impress at 33, showing age is no barrier to finish runner up with partner Silvan Dillier.
The final standings were extremely tight with four teams within 24 points of eachother after the six nights of racing.
