Germany, November 2-7, 2000
Day 1 - November 2
Zabel and Aldag after night oneThe substantial crowd at the Dortmund Six were given something to cheer about on night one after roadies Erik Zabel and Rolf Aldag finished in the leader's position. Winners of this race in 1996, the pair took a lap out of the field, with only Australian Olympic gold medallists, Scott McGrory and Brett Aitken able to follow. In third place with the most points were the Italian Silvio Martinello and German Robert Bartko.
The two leading teams set up their position after winning the first madison of the night, the Grosse REWE-Preis, a one hour event. Matthew Gilmore (5th overall) won the first heat of the Derny Welt Pokal, while Stefan Steinweg won the next from Aitken and De Wilde. Gilmore and Guido Fulst, his partner, won the team elimination race.
