Michael Morkov and Oliver Wulff Frederiksen were the big winners of Day Four of Six Day Copenhagen as they catapulted themselves to the top of the leader board with two-thirdS of the competition gone.

They tasted individual race glory twice, claiming victory in one of the six Sprints and teaming up for the 250m Madison Time Trial triumph, which they won in 12.589, ahead of nearest challengers Bartosz Rudyk and Szymon Krawczyk (12.965).

Sebastian Lander laid down a marker to the rest of the field in the first derny race of the afternoon, seizing the advantage and pulling clear for an impressive win.

Matias Malmberg was one of the eye-catching performers on an entertaining day in the Ballerup Super Arena and he rocketed clear in a packed field for Elimination glory.

And the Danish riders obviously wanted to give the home faithful reason to cheer, with Jesper Morkov, younger brother of Michael, muscling clear for another pulsating derny success as the day ticked into the evening.

Due to line-up changes, Malmberg and Sebastian Schmiedel were paired together in the number eight bibs for the start of the day, and they sealed success in the Giant Sprints thanks to Malmberg thrusting on the afterburners.

Sporting a pink cowboy hat and beginning the race throwing sweets into the crowd with a huge grin on his face, Malmberg soon switched into business mode as he pulled clear in the final few minutes before finishing with a flourish.

True to form, the Madison provided the final entertainment to the day, and the German-Danish pairing of Christian Grasmann and Jesper Morkov clocked victory, despite Wim Stroetinga crossing the line first in the final dash.

It was a fitting victory for the pair, who are great friends off the track, as Grasmann is appearing in his finale European Six Day competition, with victory in a flagship event tasting all the sweeter as a result.

All the while, Frederiksen and Michael Morkov steadily racked up points and kept up with the laps as they ended proceedings with a 62-points over the Belgian duo Kenny de Ketele, who they have dethroned after two days looking down on the rest.

Stroetinga and Yoeri Havik are third with 149 points, with Theo Reinhardt and Marc Hester fourth on 145.
