Day 4 - March 7

Lead changes again on night 4

The fourth night of the Six Days of Moscow saw yet another change in the overall lead, with Swiss pair Franco Marvulli/Alexander Aeschbach (169 pts) taking over from Dutch Robert Slippens/Danny Stam (135 pts) and French JÚr˘me Neuville/Franck Perque (129 pts) in third.

The Swiss managed to take back the lap that they lost last night to Slippens/Stam, and their sprinting skills proved valuable in earning them the necessary points to move into a commanding position. However with four teams on the same lap and two only one lap behind, the final two nights should prove to be very interesting.

The 40 minute madison was won by Neuville/Perque, while Marvulli/Aeschbach clocked the best time for the flying lap record (333m in 18.261 seconds).
