Iljo Keisse and Gijs Van Hoecke move into Six Day London lead after Day 4


The Belgian duo of Iljo Keisse and Gijs Van Hoecke are the new Six Day London leaders after four days of racing at the Lee Valley VeloPark having deposed Chris Latham and Ollie Wood from top stop.

“It’s always better to be in the lead rather than having to chase the other guys down,” said Keisse. “But sometimes it’s also not the best position with two days to go because then everyone is watching us, even more than they already do now. It will be harder racing tomorrow for us.” 

Consistency was key on Wednesday night for Keisse and Van Hoecke with Keisse explaining aggressive tactics in the final race paid off.

“In the final chase we tried to surprise everybody with taking two laps immediately after each other, and then we were lucky that Latham and Wood were with us and together we could take the lap with, I don’t know, four or five to go.”

Also held on Wednesday night was the women’s Omnium event starring Dani King and Sarah Storey.
