After the Ghent track record was held by Moreno De Pauw for five years, Lindsay De Vylder, supported by Robbe Ghys, did better. But De Vylder was clearly not yet satisfied with his time.

During the third day of the Ghent Six Days, De Vylder improved the track record of the Kuipke for the second day in a row. Launched by Robbe Ghys, he completed the lap in 8”332. Wednesday’s record was 8”406.

It is already the third day in a row that a record has been broken in the Kuipke. On Tuesday, Moreno De Pauw and Kenny De Ketele also lost the record in the 500 meters. Tuur Dens, piloted by the Dutchman Jan-Willem van Schip, took 26”496, which is better than the 26”595 of 2017.
