Spaniards grab a lap
The Spanish world champions of 1997 - Juan Llaneras and Miguel Alzamora, gained a lap on the rest ot the leading quartet in the races on Friday evening of the Grenoble six days. However, they are still well behind in points to Baffi and Collinelli and also the Danes Piil and Sandst°d. But since there's a bonus lap for every 100 points, the Italians, with 199 points, will soon be even again which will force the Danes to try for a lap on Saturday.

58th Six days of Dortmund
One up for Aldag and Martinello
German Italian pair Rolf Aldag and Silvio Martinello lead the Swiss duo Risi and Betschart by one lap. The lap was gained by just reaching 200 points and a bonus lap. The Swiss are low on points but should be able to make the lap score even during Sunday's races, but they are so low on points that they probably have to gain a lap to win the whole race.
The other top pairs trail by two laps but have points enough to threaten the Swiss pair. If they ever get even on laps. Madsen and Beikirch won the Saturday evenings 40 minute chase and also gained, together with Kappes and Pollack, a lap. In the full hour chase later on, the top pairs came back. Aldag-Martinello won ahead of Bartko-McGrory and Risi-Betschart.
