Day 4 - October 29:

Zabel and Risi defend lead

Erik Zabel and Bruno Risi have defended their lead in the Dortmund Six Days race, but it wasn’t easy. The team of Guide Fulst and Leif Lampater were particularly aggressive, and are now in second place, with the same number of rounds as Zabel and Risi. Six-day newcomer Lampater “made an especially good impression,” reports the german press agency sid, and rode a good race with his track specialist partner.

Third place, one lap back, is held by Danny Stam and Ilio Keisse. Robert Bartko has had to drop out of the race due to painful bruised ribs caused by a fall in the Six Days of Amsterdam race. His partner, Andreas Beikirch, remains in Dortmund as a substitute.
