Kenny De Ketele and Moreno De Pauw Tuesday the six days of Copenhagen won. The Belgian duo had the lead after the second and the third night even though in the hands, but had that Sunday to give it to the Danes, Oliver Wulff Frederiksen and Michael Morkov. Only in the final ploegkoers managed Ketele and de Pauw succeeded in the first place to recapture.

De Ketele and De Pauw finished with 246 points. That there are almost a hundred less than Frederiksen and Morkov (341), but the thuisrijders were on a round put in by the Belgians. The Dutchman Yoeri Havik ended with the Dane Matias Malmberg with 278 points in third place.

De Ketele came for the first time in action since the beginning of January a collarbone in the six days of Rotterdam. In Copenhagen follows the 33-year-old man from East-flanders himself on the hall of fame. Last year he won to the side of Morkov. The Peacock was second with Hawk. In 2016 and 2017 ended The Ketele and De Pauw, the second in Copenhagen.

For the 27-year-old Peacock is the seventh victory in a six-day. Also the previous six he won with The Ketele. The Belgian couple was rather successful in London (2015 and 2016), Berlin (2016), Amsterdam (2016), Ghent (2017) and Rotterdam (2018). De Ketele won a total of seventeen six-day cycle races, with eleven different partners. Only with The Peacock, he won more than one. (belga)
