what an amazing Gent 6 so far, Iljo & O'Shea are still barely in the lead. Marvulli/Marguet set a new track record the last 3 nights in a row. on tuesday, it was the flying lap at 8.57, wed was the 500 meter record, and last night they broke their own record in the flying lap by a couple of hundreths, amazing technique. Marvulli is the master of the hi speed throw in.

3 Nick Stöpler (NED) / Yoeri Havik (NED) -1 203
4 Pim Ligthart (NED) / Marcel Kalz (GER) -1 179
5 Leif Lampater (GER) / Raymond Kreder (NED) -2 193

Final day on now. Very dynamic race, probably due to the restively short track of 200m.

Good track racing is a much undervalued sporting entertainment. The Olympics,Worlds etc are a bit sanitised (though a good devil in an omnium is a cracking race) but watch some Japanese Kieren, it's manic stuff,love it.

Strong and exciting finale at Amsterdam.

200m tracks (or below if you dare) is the way to go.

de Ketele/van Hoecke the winners.

You think smaller is the future?

The Brits are already working on it. Tiny Marginal Gains ;-)

A bit late coming to this thread for Zesdaagse van Amsterdam, but I couldn't agree more on the poor coverage by CN.

I remember when the site used to give us daily results for every race with a comprehensive report. Now we're lucky to get the daily points total a few days late.

Thankfully there are sites like the one posted by Dazed and Confused and the one I got my live coverage from (http://www.sixdayracing.com/video/ which had live streaming with Dutch, English or German commentary).

The double lap Kenny De Ketele and Gijs Van Hoecke took at the end of the final madison to win the title was six day racing at its best.
