Our riders sit just outside the Six Days of Gent top three with two days to go.
Mark Cavendish and Iljo Keisse returned on the legendary track in Gent for day four of the competition, and took the pair’s tally to four victories. The Derny – an event that had already brought plenty of satisfactions to TheWolfpack powered by Maes0.0% this week – delivered again, as Mark Cavendish took a fine win for the team after a flawless and intelligent race, at the end of which he comfortably beat Lasse Norman Hansen.
Valuable points nabbed by seven-time winner Iljo Keisse in the points race and the Scratch, the penultimate event of Friday evening, kept the team in contention for a strong overall result at the 80th edition.
Going into the weekend, which schedules close to twenty races, TheWolfpack powered by Maes0.0% will try to reduce the gap to the leaders, who hold a three-lap advantage over them.
