Lasse Norman Hansen and Michael Morkov managed to hold onto their lead on the penultimate day of Six Day Copenhagen, but the former admits it will count for little unless they are topping the pile when the curtain falls.

Danes Norman Hansen and Morkov once again gave the home crowd plenty to shout about on day five as they set about extending their lead.

The duo headed into the day with a 60-point lead on Belgians Kenny de Ketele and Moreno de Pauw, but stretched that to 79 by the end of the night.

That was a result of Norman Hansen and Morkov winning two sprints, the first of two elimination races and a second-place finish in the flying lap.

They finished the evening by hoovering up the final four points to increase their chances of taking the Six Day Copenhagen crown, something Norman Hansen is determined to do.

"It [day five] was a hard and fast hunting, and we had a lot to do to hold on to the lead,” Norman Hansen said.

“But fortunately it remains the same in the standings.

"I hope that we can stand here again as winners come the end."
