The final day of the 21st Amsterdam Six-Day promises to be extremely exciting. As many as five teams still have a shot at the overall victory. Jens Mouris and Wim Stroetinga are in the best position as they have 208 points and a one lap advantage over Kenny De Ketele and Gijs Van Hoecke who are at 212 points.

 

The 2012 world Madison champions were severely handicapped by the dislocated shoulder that Van Hoecke sustained on Thursday. The Belgian’s face flinched every time De Ketele grabbed his left hand to push him on. If it hadn’t been for Van Hoecke’s shoulder injury the Belgians might have kept the lead they gained earlier on the night as they gained a bonus lap when they achieved more than 200 points as De Ketele was probably the strongest rider on the penultimate night.

As it were, the Dutch duo gained a lap on the field, and subsequently Mouris and Stroetinga were in control during the second Madison of the night. In particular, De Ketele and Van Hoecke placed some vicious attacks, but the two Dutchman managed to dismantle every move.

"After we took that lap, we were in control,” said Mouris. Stroetinga knows taking the overall win will be hard. "It's going to be exciting. Regarding points, the other teams are pretty close.”

During the first Madison of the night the favourites didn’t take any risks. They kept their powder dry. Melvin Boskamp and Jesper Asselman benefited. Along with Aaron Gate and Luke Roberts, the two young Dutchmen claimed a lap. During the nine intermediate sprints, Boskamp and Asselman collected more points than their two opponents from Down Under and thus won.

Overall after 5th day in Amsterdam:

 

1 Jens Mouris – Wim Stroetinga (NED), 208 p., at 1 lap: 2 Kenny de Ketele – Gijs van Hoecke (BEL), 212 p., 3 Nick Stöpler – Yoeri Havik (NED), 203 p., 4 Pim Ligthart (NED) – Marcel Kalz (GER), 179 p., at 2 laps: 5 Leif Lampater (GER) – Raymond Kreder (NED), 193 p., at 4 laps: 6 Tristan Marguet (SUI) – Marc Hester (DEN), 167 p., at 6 laps: 7 Barry Markus (NED) – Robert Bartko (GER), 36 p., at 9 laps: 8 Jiri Hochmann – Vojtech Hacecky (CZE), 131 p., 9  Melvin Boskamp – Jesper Asselman (NED), 110 p., at 11 laps: 10 Wesley Kreder (NED) – Nolan Hoffmann (RSA), 83 p., at 13 laps: 11 Aaron Gate (NZL) – Luke Roberts (AUS), 75 p., at 17 laps: 12 Didier Caspers – Melvin van Zijl (NED), 22 p., at 22 laps: 13 Guy East – Daniel Holloway (USA), 31 p.
