Erik Zabel will seek to defend his title at the Bremen Six Day race next month, Team Milram announced Wednesday. His partner will be Leif Lampater in the traditional track event which runs from January 10-15.
Zabel and Lampater finished second so far this season in the Six Day races in both Dortmund and Munich. Last season, Zabel partnered with Bruno Risi, winning the Bremen event, and Lampater with Guido Fulst. Favourites for the victory are Risi and Franco Marvulli, as well as Robert Bartko and Iljo Keisse. So far, both pairs won two races this season.
