Germany defended his leader condition in Madison.
Colombia won bronze medal.
Germany pair, integrated by Marcel Barth and Eric Mohs, won Madison, complex race by pair with turns between riders of same team.
Barth and Mohs won with 2 advantage laps, overtaking to Lokomotiv and Colombia pairs, with 1 advantage laps.
Race was very fast, with many tactical movements and so much attacks.
First team to attack was Lokomotiv. Almost take lap, but Germany accelerated and avoid catch.
Move on now Belgium, Russia and Dominican Republlic, and first sprint was to caribeans. But group go fast, and it don´t avoid escapes...
More attacks, until Germany could make difference and they could take lap. Now, Germany controlled attacks, until Colombia and Lokomotiv attacked, make difference, Germany counterattacked, and 3 pairs took lap. Now, with 3 teams winning by laps, the control was strong. And points in sprints make difference, but to define medals.
Germany renew leader condition, and they guaranteed attendance to next World Championship.
