With pace to burn and a wealth of experience in his legs, Max Levy is a regular at the Six Day cycling circuit, and will hope to add to his success in London this year after his recent victory in Mallorca.

He dominated the men’s sprint field to take the coveted crown in Spain, sealing victories in the opening time trial and individual sprint along the way.

This follows his third place at Six Day London 2017, and his win in Berlin in the same year, the latter being particularly impressive as it came just 12 days after breaking his collarbone for the third time in his career.

He went straight to surgery and had a metal plate and pins inserted into his left shoulder.

In Six Day Amsterdam in December 2016 he came out on top, after his second-place finish in London that year.

But it is not just in the Six Day arena where Levy has seen success. The 30-year-old German speedster has won multiple world, European and Olympic medals.


While Olympic gold has eluded the rapid Levy to date, it took something special to keep him off the top of the rostrum in 2012.

Sir Chris Hoy held on for a dramatic victory on home boards despite under intense pressure from the field, Levy coming through to take the silver honours ahead of New Zealand’s Simon van Velthooven.

Alongside Rene Enders and Robert Foerstemann, he was part of the trio which defeated Australia in the bronze medal clash in the team sprint, repeating the feat of four years earlier when he, Enders and Stefan Nimke pipped the Aussies to third in Beijing.


The Berlin-born Levy has amassed no fewer than ten world track medals, most recently at the keirin was at the 2018 championships in Apeldoorn.

This added to his haul of medals in the keirin, with a gold in 2009, silvers in 2012 and 2013 and a bronze in 2010.

While keirin is a successful discipline, he has enjoyed greater success as part of the team sprint – winning the title three times in four years, in 2010, 2011 and 2013, with silver a year later.


Levy is also a four-time European Champion – twice in the keirin and twice in the team sprint.

He has enjoyed success in his home arena in recent times, winning keirin gold and team sprint silver in the 2017 championships.

His first European medal was a team sprint crown in Pruszkow in 2010, before topping the podium in both disciplines in Apeldoorn in 2013.

Sandwiched in between these are a 2011 individual sprint silver and team sprint bronze in 2015.
