Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins relied on their Madison skills to rise to the top of the Six Day London standings Saturday after five days of racing. The Madison World Champions took a solo lap on the field during the chase event to take the lead the standings ahead of Belgium's Kenny de Ketele and Moreno de Pauw. Katie Archibald continues to dominate the women's race.

De Ketele and De Pauw currently have more points than the British leaders, but the Belgians are 73 points from being able to reclaim the lap they lost.

Cavendish, who missed out on a gold medal in the omnium at the rio Olympics, said winning the Six Day London with Wiggins would be "amazing."

"To ride here in front of this crowd in World Championship jerseys is something special anyway," the Manxman was quoted as saying on  the event website. "I had to miss it last year, but to win it with Brad would be something special.

"We’ve played the long game here," Cavendish said. "It’s a hard Six Day here in London and we knew we were going to be tired. We’ve tried to look after ourselves to come through. It’s not been great because we haven’t won so much this week and it’s a big gamble, but thankfully it’s paid off.

“I don’t think things are going to be easy on Sunday. There’s not just one team on our heels, there’s three or four, and that’s going to make it a really hard fight."
