Maxime Desprey won for the second time the ‘Prince of Lille’ title, and France beat the United States in the Nations classification.
More than 40,000 spectators enjoyed both days of the event, and on Sunday the Stadium sang the Marseillaise in memory of the Parisian tragedy.
Winner of his heat race and the main event on Saturday, Peick had more troubles today as he had to qualify for the main through the last chance after crashing in the heat race.
With a bad pick gate his start in the main was not so great, but the American came back in second position behind Christophe Pourcel who led the entire race. Both Cooper Webb and Malcom Stewart crashed while pushing behind the Frenchman, losing all chances of podium; they also helped Peick to come back second on the podium, between Pourcel and Fabien Izoird.
