Andreas Beikirch has crashed out of a Six Day race for the second time this season. He fell in Hasselt, Belgium, last week and sustained injuries to his ribs and his knee. He will be out for about two months.

Beikirch crashed on the second day of the race at 50km/h, according to Beikirch, who rides for Nutrixxion Sparkasse on the road, plans to start back up in May.

The German rider crashed in the Six Day race in Bremen in January and suffered a partial fracture to a vertebrae. He was out for four weeks then and Hasselt was his first race back.
