With no less than two sessions of racing planned for Saturday, main title contenders of the Six Days of Copenhagen wisely decided to take it easy in the afternoon and save their energy for later. The German-Danish pair of Christian Grasmann and Jesper Morkov took the biggest advantage of such situation, as they significantly shortened their distance to race leaders.

 

Arguably the toughest day of racing traditionally kicked-off with sprints competition, which didn't make for any shakedown in the general classification, but offered slightly fatigued riders a chance to warm up themselfes properly. Among the main title contenders, the overnight leaders and Danish favourites shared points between themselves, while Lampater/ Kalz and Grassman/ Morkov decided to save their energy for later.

 

In one of the most prestigueous disciplines – the elimination race, a wise tactical approach dominated again, as the main title contenders decided to play is safe. It once again emphasized how huge effort was still ahead of them with two sessions planned for Saturday.

 

The 75-laps long Madison race was a climax of the afternoon session, but only Grasmann and Morkov managed to gain a lap and move themselves closer to three strongest pairs, as they crossed the 100-points mark. Austrians Andreas Muller and Graf won the big chase, narrowly oversprinting Rasmussen and Morkov.

 

The Saturday's afternoon session passed by without causing too big excitement, but better rested Six Days of Copenhagen contenders should provide the audience with great entertainment in the evening.
