Plans are already afoot for the next Samsung Six-Days Race in Zürich, the race organizers announced Wednesday. The race will start on December 27 and end on New Year's Day.
Co-organizer Max Hürzeler said, "The audience's enthusiasm, and especially the interest from many young fans, showed us that the event has a good perspective and should continue."
This year, the winning team of Bruno Risi and Franco Marvulli were sponsored by Möbel Märkli (Risi) and Skoda (Marvulli). For next year, both sponsors have indicated they want to sponsor a whole team. "That undoubtedly means more fireworks on the track and will lead to an exciting race," according to the press release. Co-organizer Urs Freuler said that "The basest riders have to be on the start in Zürich. We are definitely figuring with Erik Zabel next time."
