Belkin duo Bos and Brown to ride Rotterdam Six-Day
logoBelkin Theo Bos and Graeme Brown will make a short return to the track this winter. The two Belkin Pro Cycling Team riders, who were both very successful on the track in the past, will pair in the Rotterdam Six-Day, January 2 to 7.

“I’m super excited,” explained Bos. “I’m really looking forward to team up with Graeme. He has a great history on the track.” Brown shares the same enthusiasm having been an Olympic champion on the track. “I love the track. I think six-day racing is amazing. I watched the Six-Day of Amsterdam and that was really cool. I’ve never before ridden a Six in Europe. I think Ahoy is a nice place for a first time.”

Bos and Brown are ambitious and aim for the win. “It’s a wonderful challenge to take on the strong field as a Belkin couple. There are some strong other duos like Niki Terpstra/Iljo Keisse, Alex Rasmussen/Michael Mørkøv and Jens Mouris/Wim Stroetinga. A podium finish is our goal, but actually we want to compete for the win,” said Bos. “Theo and I know our way around on the track, but we will face a difficult week in Rotterdam. There are so many strong riders,” explained Brown. The Rotterdam Six-Day will definitely, no matter the result, help Bos and Brown in their run-up to the road season. “This is going to bring us a lot of speed,” said Bos.

Glorious past
Bos and Brown both have a glorious past on the track. Between 2004 and 2007 Bos won five world titles. Three sprint titles and one kilometre and one Keirin. He also claimed Olympic silver. In 2004 he finished second in the sprint in Athens. During that same Olympics, Brown was very successful in the team races. He claimed a gold medal in the team pursuit and repeated that performance in the Madison.
