After day four of the Six-Day bike races at London's Forest City Velodrome the standings are closer than ever. Team Hamilton was the first to gain a lap and take the race lead. Shortly after that it was London and Vancouver.

The overall race leaders at the start of day four,Team Brantford, were continually attacked throughout the sessions by the other teams with the result Teams Vancouver and Delhi have moved ahead of them by a single point and the other teams are right at their doorstep.

The constant attacks and mad dashes for sprint points kept the spectators at the edge of their seats the entire night.

Going into the last 10 lap sprint of the night for double points any one of four teams could have taken the overall win.
