De Vylder, Ghys win Gent Six Day overall as Keisse finishes his run on the podium

Lindsay De Vylder and Robbe Ghys clinched the overall title at Gent Six Day on Sunday, using a win at Madison to seal the deal. The Belgian duo overcame a one lap deficit with Yoeri Havik (Netherlands) and Fabio van den Bossche (Belgium) from Saturday.

The home crowd was amply rewarded in the final event of the night, the men’s Madison. It was the last time veteran star Iljo Keisse (Belgium) would race on the track in a career spanning three decades. Along with his compatriot Jasper De Buyst, he finished third overall.
