Several riders confirmed as excitement builds ahead of Six Day Berlin

16th November 2019

Last month’s Phynova Six Day London saw a star-studded line-up descend on the UK and Six Day Berlin will be no different as a whole host of riders take to the German boards.

Last month’s Phynova Six Day London saw a star-studded line-up descend on the UK and Six Day Berlin will be no different as a whole host of riders take to the German boards.

As it stands, Theo Reinhardt and Max Beyer will spearhead the home contingent in the Elite Men category, joined by Six Day veterans Marc Hester and Wim Stroetinga who have also confirmed their attendance at the January bonanza.

In the Elite Women it is Italy’s Rachele Barbieri who represents one of the most decorated stars on display, hoping to build on her fourth-place finish with Simona Frapporti at Phynova Six Day London and forge a way onto the podium.

But it is German sprinter Max Levy who will play the role of chief crowd-pleaser in the German capital, boasting a remarkable Six Day record that includes seven series victories, 54 individual race wins and 123 podiums.

And last month he went even further in extending his hegemony, breaking the London record which he set in the 200m Flying Time Trial not once but twice on nights three and four of the competition.

So, for the hordes that will invariably flock to Das Velodrome, they will be expecting more history-making antics from the convivial, fun-loving home favourite.

British duo Matt Bostock and Andy Tennant will also be two familiar faces who will take to the track in the Elite Men’s field, with Andreas Muller and Andreas Graf also confirming their attendance to bolster a competitive-looking line-up.

Although many of the sport’s most recognisable women are yet to be announced, Danish duo Julie Leth and Trine Schmidt will be joining the dangerous Barbieri in January’s event.

With just over two months to go until the party kicks off, the offering already confirmed provides only a snapshot of the full line-up who will grace the futuristic velodrome in the new year.

And with many more riders due to be announced over the coming weeks, it looks set to be yet another Six Day event to savour in the German capital.
