With the 2017-18 Six Day title under his belt, Max Levy is eyeing up victory in London to complete the full set of series wins next season.

Levy dominated the men’s Six Day Mallorca sprint field to take this year’s crown, winning the opening time trial and individual sprint along the way.

The German is a regular feature on the Six Day Series circuit and has enjoyed particular success this season with a win in Berlin and a third-placed finish in London.

Multiple Olympic, world and European medals garnered over more than a decade at the top is evidence that Levy is a serial winner, and the Six Day champion is aiming to add a London Six Day to his list of accolades.

“In London, the Kiwis were super strong and I couldn’t react to it. I’ll try to come back next year to take the win in London because it’s the one I’m missing,” he said.

“I won Amsterdam last year and have all the wins. London is just the one I’m missing.”

Levy has added yet another European Keirin gold and world bronze to his vast collection of medals and is pleased to now be able to place the Six Day wood on his mantelpiece.

“I was on the podium in every race so the big goal was to get the piece of wood. I’m pretty happy it worked out,” he said.

Despite his dominance in Mallorca, Levy didn’t have it all his own way as he was made settle for second in the Keirin behind Spain’s Juan Peralta.

Levy conceded afterwards that being part of a field containing three Spanish riders – Peralta, Alejandro Martinez and Jose Moreno – led to him changing his tactics.

“I could see the Spanish Armada, all three. I could see they ride together and they had some plan in mind,” Levy said.

“They tried to accelerate for Juan so that’s why i tried to go early to surprise. It was maybe a little too long. In the end it’s a second but important is the overall points for me.”
