Robert Bartko will definitely not appear at the 97th Berlin Six Day scheduled to take place from January 24-29. The German World and Olympic champion had announced early in December that he would not appear, because he was offered too little money. Attempts to negotiate a compromise deal have now fallen through according to the German cycling federation, Bund Deutscher Radfahrer (BDR).
The BDR reported that the race organiser indicated that Bartko decided not to participate in his "home race" as his demands for payment and for Iljo Keisse as a partner were not met. Bartko and Keisse have already won Six Day races in Amsterdam and Gent this season, and finished second in the last race in Zürich. They are currently riding in Rotterdam.
