102nd Berliner Sechstagerennen - The 2013 Edition - Introduction

The 102nd Berlin Six Day starts in the German Capital on Thursday night. This event is one of the classics of the winter track calendar, but despite that, unfortunately, Six-day racing continues to be in decline. This is not just something that can be laid at the door of the global economy, rather just a fact of life that times change. As events have left established Six-day cities such as Dortmund, Munich and Stuttgart in recent years due to lack of sponsors and public interest, it is now left to Berlin and Bremen, to fly the flag in the country that was once the European home of Six-day racing.

The quality and composition of this year's field is, like it has been at all this winters Sixes, a mixed bag as there are very few riders now that race at every Six. In bygone years there was a 'blue train' of established riders who went from city to city racing long into the night hours. That culture appears, like events, to be a thing of the past as riders from the host countries tend to dominate the start lists in those countries' respective Sixes.

This year the Berlin starting field, on paper, is even weaker than it was 12 months ago. The list has numerous Berlin debutants as well as 4 or 5 young Six-day novices / rookies. The organisers have not been able to bring riders such as Michael Morkov, Iljo Keisse, Leigh Howard, Cameron Meyer, Glenn O'Shea or Gijs Van Hoecke to Berlin, probably due their commitment to trade team contracts. But with the quality of Six Day riders becoming as scarce as events it was again a surprise to see that a few of the strong specialists such as Marc Hester, Christian Grasmann and Silvan Dillier didn't make the start list either.

It's not all doom and gloom though, as the riders who are present will be motivated to put in performances and compete to the best of their varying abilities... after all the show must go on. So the 32 riders will again start their race too nowhere on the 250 metre track, entertaining another noisy Berlin public inside the Landsberger Allee Velodrome.

Here is a look at the starting field:

The Favourites
Roger Kluge starts only his second Six-day race of the winter as the organisers favourite and is paired with veteran Dutchman Peter Schep. The talent of Kluge is undoubted and after a great start to his career in 2008, he was seen as a potential star of track and road. Last year, his goals of an Olympic medal and improvement on the road didn't materialise. Entering 2013 at nearly 27, he is no longer a young, up and coming future star. He'll still be seen as the man to beat though, so he'll come to Berlin with a point to prove and will want a second victory in his capital city, following a win with Robert Bartko in 2011. This is a strong team, especially in a field with no other obvious favourites, as Kluge has the speed and Schep the endurance to make a classic Six-day partnership.

World Madison Champion Kenny de Ketele has had a good winter season in the rainbow jersey, winning two events and placing 2nd in a very hard fought Ghent Six. He is paired with experienced Australian Luke Roberts, who returned to Six-day racing with a 2nd place in Bremen (alongside Leif Lampater) last week. This year De Ketele seems to have improved his finishing speed to go along with his increased strength and Six-day experience, so, alongside a strong pursuit rider like Roberts, this team should be the main challengers to Kluge / Schep.

Other Podium Contenders

A couple of years ago Franco 'marvellous' Marvulli appeared to be in premature decline, but after a good last winter he has continued to show he has indeed re-found his form and most importantly, his enthusiasm. Last week he won the Bremen Six with Marcel Kalz and comes into one of his favourite events in good form, as well as with good morale. The mental side has always been part of the battle for Franco. His partner is Berlin born Austrian national team rider, Andreas Muller, who also showed well in Bremen with a career best 4th place finish. With so few big name riders in the field Muller gets a rare chance to ride with a top performer, many his previous 70 odd Sixes have been spent looking after inexperienced riders. 'Mulli', as he is affectionately known, was born just a short walk from the velodrome, so with Marvulli at his side his motivation will be sky high. His chances of making his first ever podium have probably never been better.

The Berlin based Robert Bengsch and Marcel Kalz are reunited following their good showings at the last 4 Berlin Sixes. The 25 year old Kalz starts in his hometown on the back of his first ever win in Bremen, with Franco Marvulli. His partner Bengsch won his one and only Six-day at Bremen in 2011 (with Robert Bartko), but hasn't really shown that same kind of form very often since. The motivation of Berlin could make a difference though, so he and Kalz will be aiming to improve on their 5th place finish last year and at least make the podium in 2013.


The Dutch team present this year comprises Wim Stroetinga and Nick Stopler, both of whom have shown well at Dutch Sixes over the last few years, but are debutants in Berlin. On his day, Stroetinga is fast and could go well in the time trials. The 22 year old Stopler looks like a rider on the rise, so if they are both in form, could get close to the podium. In the past Stroetinga seemed to lack the endurance to hang on until death in the chases, a win in Rotterdam (with Schep) last winter being the exception. It'll be interesting to see if they can shine in this field of mostly lesser lights.

At the Ghent Six in November, French speaking Swiss Tristan Marguet, broke track records in the flying lap and 500 metre time trial and I'm sure his remit in Berlin will be to entertain the crowd in similar fashion. His partner Tino Thomel gets a 5th start on his home track, but has little in the way of international pedigree so this pair won't be one to watch in the chases.

The Belgian, Tim Mertens, went well in Ghent but hasn't had a contract since, so will be looking to survive as well as guide Berlin based debutant Hans Pirius around the boards safely for the six days.

Leif Lampater has shown to be a strong rider over his 60 plus starts and along with Marvulli is the only guy to have raced at all the Sixes this winter. He'll probably be disappointed then that his reward is to play taxi driver to 20 year old Lucas Lib, another of the German debutants. Not sure of the thinking behind this one as Lampater is a former winner here but without local knowledge it might be that the youngster is seen as a potential future player so pairing him with a strong rider is a way to show him off to the public, with future Berlin Sixes in mind.

The German pair Marcel Barth and Erik Mohs are both still only 26 and have a number of Six-day starts between them. Last year, Barth got a few starts outside of Germany but poor showings meant that was not repeated this winter, and he hasn't shown the potential to be a challenger, just an entertainer perhaps? On the other hand Mohs came onto the scene strongly around 2006-2007 racing with the retired Andreas Beikirch. He seemingly had a big future, but after aiming at a road career, that didn't materialise, he has returned to the track without showing himself to be a potential podium rider.

The organisations love of 'national' teams brings French team Morgan Kneisky and Vivien Brisse to Berlin for the first time. Kneisky is a strong track rider and a multiple Worlds medallist, so in this field, they should stay inside the top 10 and get some good work ahead of the World Championships.

The Italians Fabio Masotti and Angelo Ciccone have been around the track scene for a long time, but neither has much in the way of wins or Six-day appearances to report on. They are with all due respect a cheap contract to make up the numbers and add another 'national team' to the start list.

Perhaps the most surprising pairing in the field is that of Robert Bartko and Theo Reinhardt. The experienced Bartko has 19 Six-day wins in his palmares whilst Reinhardt is just starting his 4th Six and two of those starts came here in 2011 and 2012. On paper, as with Lampater, it appears the organisers have taken one of the few top Six-day riders in the field out of contention. On the other hand, Reinhardt may be highly rated locally and it could be they are the 'local team' to cheer for as the youngster is from the city and Bartko resides a few kilometres away in Potsdam. It will be interesting to see how they go, as I can't recall ever seeing Bartko with an unknown partner.

Yet again, the organisers have given a start to little known Russians, that penchant for 'national teams' again, Artur Ershov and Leonid Krasnow. The latter raced in Berlin last winter with a different partner finishing a whopping 32 laps down. That is a massive deficit on the 250 metre track and like the young Germans in the field, experience is all they'll be looking for.

Another Berliner riding on his home track is Henning Bommel, who he is another cast in the role of guiding junior German rider, this time Kersten Thiele, through his Six-day baptism.

The only Dane in the field is Jesper Morkov, brother of the more famous and successful Michael. The younger Morkov will have a tough week preparing for his home race in Copenhagen, as despite only a handful of starts he'll be the experienced one in his pairing, with the last of the young German debutants, Sebastian Wotschke.

Last, but not least, American Guy East gets a rare start and at 25 is not a youngster, but the Indianapolis native will be keen to show the stars and stripes in a good light. His partner is Berlin roadman Bjorn Schroder, who despite being 32, has just two Six-day starts to his name. Look for them to lose a lot of laps, but maybe not as many as some other teams!!!

Stehers, Sprinters and Ladies

Berlin always allows the Steher (or motor paced racers) and match Sprinters some well deserved spotlight, giving spectators a chance to enjoy almost all the traditional forms of track racing, the exception being the long removed tandem!!!

The Stehers The Stehers race for 20 minutes every night behind the big motors and this is one of just two Six Day races that still give them a chance to shine, the other being Zurich. The former spiritual home of the Stehers was Dortmund's Westfalenhallen, but in 2009 not only was the Dortmund Six cancelled, but after 72 editions the Boxing Day 'Grosser Weihnachtspreis' (considered the unofficial Steher World Championship) also sadly fell by the wayside. The small band of specialists and pacers plug away on the large outdoor tracks during the summer months around Germany, as well as occasionally in Switzerland, Holland and the UK (at the Herne Hill Good Friday meeting), in front of small but appreciative and knowledgeable crowds.

The sprinters The sprinters are all German but with this nations sprint tradition are also World class. This city appreciates the big men of cycling. The Olympic Team Sprint bronze medallists Maximilian Levy, Robert Forstemann and Rene Enders are joined on the start list by multiple World and Olympic medallist Stefan Nimke, Erik Balzer and Tobias Wachter. The 34 year old Nimke, traditionally a kilo specialist, is still going strong and he and his fellow sprinters will put on a show and get in some competition for the Worlds racing a Flying Lap, Match Sprint and Team Sprint each and every night.

The sprinters The ladies programme, at the time of writing, is unknown, but the field is comprised of potential German national riders and younger, less experienced riders from Briton, Holland, Denmark, Slovakia and Poland trying to establish themselves internationally.


Golden Night (3) Saturday

Any talk of decline appears to have been, thankfully, premature as 25,000 people had visited the 102nd Berlin Six over the first two days. Tonight was 'Golden Night' and another massive crowd of around 13,000 trudged through the ice and snow in temperatures of around -13C to cheer and, in Berlin's inimitable style, whistle the riders around the 250 metre track.

In what has become the way here, after a leg stretching set of sprints, the riders went straight into a 30 minute Madison. The leading teams traded laps until the end when Roger Kluge took the win with his Dutch partner Peter Schep. Gaining laps on the 250 metre track is not always easy so efforts have to be measured. Riders will do around 600 metres (over 2 laps) between changes unlike on the shorter tracks that are more suited to Six-day racing when laps are won and lost relatively frequently.

In the lead at this stage were Andreas Muller and Franco Marvulli. Being from Berlin Muller has, as always, extra motivation to perform. He actually went to school just a few hundred metres from the building and with his family's apartment just 500 metres away. He really is a local boy. After finishing 4th in Bremen, his morale is high and he has good condition honed during 4 weeks training in Australia during December. This is the first time on home soil that he has had such a strong partner and has a great chance of making it onto his first ever Six-day podium. It's something he deserves after consistent performances at major championships, earning his stripes, and showing the younger guys the Six-day ropes.

There was only one Elimination race (or Devil) for teams and as one would expect with so few races in the programme the top teams didn't hold back with World Madison Champ Kenny de Ketele and Luke Roberts taking the win and the overall lead.

The big rendezvous of the night was the 45 minute Madison and the closing laps got the 13,000+ crowd excited when 3 teams struggled to gain a lap and yo-yoed back and forth before finally taking the lap after a high speed chase. Looking the strongest at this point in time where Kenny De Ketele and Luke Roberts and they had no such problems nipping away to gain a lap close to the end of the chase holding strong to win the sprint too. At 27 years of age De Ketele looks stronger than ever. On the other hand Marvulli / Muller appeared to fade but it was just one chase and there are 3 days left, anything can still happen.

At 14 laps behind and in last place in the standings are American Guy East and Berlin road rider Bjorn Schroder. At 25 East told me he is no longer a full time cyclist but lives, studies and works close to San Diego, although, of course he continues to ride his bike. He had the call to race here and in Copenhagen and despite his honest assessment seems to be more at home than his partner, road based professional, Schroder. He told me he didn't have the enthusiasm to race the road but still loves the Six-days and despite being in last place has good morale. He is enjoying 'a tough experience' but noted how fast the chases are.

As the crowd noticeably thinned out the last big event on the programme was the 1,000 Metre Time Trial (TT). The winners of this were Kalz / Bengsch in a time of 55.491, the result keeping them in contention for a podium place.

Sprinters, Stehers and the Ladies

Photo by Karl Franke

The main Six Day programme is much shorter here than at other cities due to the sprint and steher (motor-paced) races. Also we now have a recently introduced Ladies-Cup that reduces the programme further.

The leading Sprinter after 3 nights is Maximilian Levy. The 24 year old from Cottbus leads from fellow German team sprinter, and owner of the largest thighs in cycling, Robert Forstemann.

Leading the Stehers after 3 nights is Florian Fernow who won the crowd pleasing high speed race tonight.

The Ladies-Cup is a two horse race between Stephanie Pohl and Charlotte Becker, Pohl holding a 1 point lead in an Omnium style competition.

Around the Landsberger Allee Velodrome

Unlike Ghent this is a large venue so spotting ex-riders and local celebrities is not as easy but one guy attracting a lot of attention was 'Didi the Devil'. A local he has been a familiar sight at the Tour and other major races for as long as I can remember. He missed the Tour last year due to ill health but was in good form here posing for a seemingly endless stream of photos with Six-day revellers.

Also in attendance was Erik Zabel who finished his career in his city of birth, in his one and only appearance, back in 2009. He was perhaps the last throw back to a bygone era when stars of the road came indoors during the winter to give the public a chance to see them up close and personal. His son Rik was in the junior races here a few years ago and Erik and his family are regular and popular visitors at this, the longest running Six-day race in the world.

The Berlin Six, as all German Sixes are or were, is not just a sporting event. There is the pomp and show, as well as numerous bars and offerings of culinary delights around the building. Non meat eaters beware though, as being a vegetarian in this place may be akin to being one in Argentina.

The Six-day race itself has now become just a part of it all, this which is in my opinion, a bit of a shame, as 10 years ago riders always said Berlin had a sport loving public, so sport was first. The organisation feels they know their public though, and have moved away from this, adding more 'show'. The long breaks, and low team points totals, in the Six-day programme reflect this. They have brought in the Ladies-Cup, but with all due respect, that has just further reduced the allotted time and the riders have a lot of down time, which I'm not sure they like.

Familientag (4) Sunday

Sundays at German Six-day races have always traditionally been 'Family Day' with the programme of sport and entertainment held during the afternoon rather than in the evening / night. With temperatures outside now (just) above freezing, making it a relatively mild Berlin winter afternoon, local families came along to the Landsberger Allee Velodrome to celebrate the past, present and future in this their 102nd Six-day race.

The race programme kicked off with a series of Sprints, no overall winner, just teams adding points to their totals. The riders then went straight into a short Derny race, which in traditional crowd pleasing style, was a nip and tuck battle to the line. The surprise winners were Dutchmen Wim Stroetinga and Nick Stopler, who gladly accepted the bouquet and accompanying applause.

The big chase of the afternoon began at 13.35 (local time), a 45 minute Madison. The leading teams appeared to be marking each other, so Stroetinga / Stopler and Thomel / Grasmann escaped to gain a lap on the rest. The Dutchmen continued their good start to Sundays programme but it was the Germans who took the win, racing half a lap clear of the field.

After a rest for some off track entertainment, the riders got up again for the Team Elimination, where Kalz and Bengsch continued their good showing. Despite victory (with Marvulli) in Bremen last week, winning his home town Six is looking like a long shot for Kalz.

The Sunday programmes second Madison, over 30 minutes, proved to be another stalemate amongst the top teams, with the French, Kneisky / Brisse being the main aggressors and grabbing the win. They've improved day by day and are back to just 2 laps down overall. They probably needed more time than the main Six-day guys coming in from Bremen to find their legs, but now look amongst the strongest in the chases. With the Worlds less than a month away, they look to be a pair to watch out for.

Last but not least, for today was another Derny round won by Barth / Mohs. So after a stop-start afternoon of racing, the riders now have a full 24 hours too rest before battle commences again tomorrow night.

1. De Ketele (Bel) - Roberts (Aus) 155 points

Final Day (6) Tuesday

by Steve Penny
29 January 2013

A crowd of around 12,000 filed into the Landsberger Allee Velodrome tonight. The large numbers continued a trend for the six days - with an estimated 70,000 coming through the doors - attendance figures are up rather than down, a good sign going forward.

On the track following Mondays racing, the standings were tighter than they looked on Sunday afternoon, with Kalz / Bengsch, Kluge / Schep and Muller / Marvulli all gaining a lap on the weekend leaders De Ketele / Roberts.

So with 4 teams in the hunt here is how the final night in Berlin went:

With points gained during the opening Sprints race counting towards the overall classification, the top teams got involved and improved their totals.

The team Elimination was the main opportunity of the evening for the top teams to gain 20 valuable points and it was Muller / Marvulli who gained maximum points ahead of De Ketele / Roberts. The win left the Swiss / German combination poised to gain a bonus lap and Kluge / Schep also close at this stage of the evening.

The Derny Final was another crowd pleaser, these races are not usually important to the standings although the leading teams picked up a point or two. The win in this one went too Roger Kluge and Peter Schep, who did want the points on the way to a bonus lap.

The last 1,000 metre Time Trial saw another good performance from Marcel Kalz and Robert Bengsch who posted a time of 55.863.

The last race before the big final chase was a Points race won by Marcel Barth and Erik Mohs.

Finale - 60 Minute Madison

The final chase went back and forth with the end results in doubt until just a few laps from the finish. The 'Berlin team' of Marcel Kalz and Robert Bengsch started the finale a lap in arrears but did their utmost to overturn the deficit. Time and time again they went on the attack and did actually hold the lead for a while, but going into the final 50 laps, and the bonus sprints, they'd run out of gas and ultimately had to settle for 4th place. The race for the Berlin Six was between De Ketele / Roberts and Kluge / Schep although Marvulli / Muller where on the same lap they weren't able to challenge in the sprints. With 8 laps and just the final sprint left, Peter Schep pulled clear and he and Roger Kluge held a 100 metre gap all the way to the finish despite the best efforts of De Ketele and Luke Roberts. The Belgian / Australian team had looked the strongest over the weekend, but Kluge appeared to get stronger as the Six progressed and he came into form just at the right time to make up for a disappointing result last year.

In 3rd place, Andreas Muller will be pleased to get his first ever podium placing, with his partner Marvulli, confirming he has re-found his appetite for the Sixes, amidst talk of an early retirement. For Kenny De Ketele, 2nd place in consecutive years must have been disappointing. He seemed to be the strong man of his team, but couldn't match the combined endurance and strength of Schep and Kluge.

The Sprinters, Stehers and Ladies

The leading Sprinter of the week was Maximilian Levy, who took the Berlin trophy ahead of Robert Forstemann. Both were part of the London 2012 bronze medal trio in the Team Sprint, they'll now be focusing on regaining the World Championships in Minsk (Belarus) next month.

Tying up the Steher prize was Berliner, Florian Fernow. This event always entertains the public, but this style of racing needs a much larger track so these races are really only exhibitions, albeit run off at speeds of over 70kmph.

The Ladies-Cup was a two horse race with Stephanie Pohl beating Charlotte Becker by just 1 point over the 4 day Omnium style competition. Special mention goes out to 20 year old Brit Hannah Walker, who came out here alone and raced hard during the competition, with no official back up or support. Despite being the lonely long distance cyclist, she enjoyed the experience prior to heading off to Tenerife for road training.
