Grenoble & Dortmund kick off Six Day series

The six day season is getting thinner. Several events have been cancelled, but still the races of Grenoble and Dortmund stick to the tradition and are raced at the same time of October 28 to November 2.

Grenoble has a smaller field with 12 pairs but organisers have managed to sign world Madison Champion Juan Llaneras of Spain who rides with his World's winning partner from 1997 Miguel Alzamora, last year's winners Adriano Baffi and Andrea Collinelli are also on.

In Dortmund's larger field there are 14 pairs, with the three time Swiss winners of Bruno Risi – Kurt Betschart will make a new attempt to beat last year's winners Silvio Martinello and Rolf Aldag. Other interesting pairs include Robert Bartko and Scott McGrory, Matthew Gilmore and Etienne Dewilde, Andreas Kappes and Olaf Pollack plus Andreas Beikirch and Jimmi Madsen.

In Grenoble there will also be a sprinter's revenge as World Champion Laurent Gané once again will meet his rival in the final, German Jens Fiedler, who won the keirin at the World's in Berlin. But there are at least two others that might have a say: Florian Rousseau, three times sprint world champion 1996-98 and the last two years kilometre world Champion Arnaud Tournant . Also running include Mickael Bourgain from France and new-New Zealander Anthony Peden.
