The Zürich Six day kicks off this week, but will do so without Peter Schep. Dutchman Jens Mouris will take the place of Schep to pair up with his compatriot Danny Stam at the Zürich six day, beginning this Thursday in Switzerland. Schep, who teamed up with Stam last month at the track celebrations, is still recovering from a viral infection and had to withdraw from the event.
The points race world champion wants to be back in the business in Rotterdam from January 4-9, according to Belgian news agency Belga. Once again, Stam has to get used to a new partner this six day season. His long-time partner Robert Slippens is still recovering from a bad crash in the end of August, at one-day race Schaal Sels in Merksem, Belgium.
