Cavendish & Wiggins In Gent Six Dayer Win

British riders Mark Cavendish and Sir Bradley Wiggins have won the Six Days Of Gent meeting.

The British duo were third behind leader Kenny De Ketele and Moreno De Pauw, and Elia Viviani and Iljo Keisse going into the hour long Madison.

Every time, Cavendish and Wiggins took a lap, their rivals took one back. However with five laps left, Wiggins made a move and took a lap which the others could not respond to and despite being sixty five points, Cavendish and Wiggins were the overall winners.
