Zabel returns to Weihnachtspreis

Milram's Erik Zabel has made a habit of racing the annual post-Christmas track event, 'Großer Weihnachtspreis', in the Westfallenhalle in Dortmund, Germany, for several years. 2007 will be no different, as the 37 year-old will lead the 'omnium of aces' selection.

Zabel will then team up with Dutch rider Peter Schep at the Rotterdam Six Day from January 3-8. Schep and Zabel rode to third at the Six Day season opener in Amsterdam. A quick trip back to Germany, and Zabel will line up with his compatriot Leif Lampater for the Six Day in Bremen from January 10-15. The duo finished second in Dortmund and Munich.
