The Program

No Vandenbroucke in Munich Six

International Six Day stars will circle around the track again tonight for the 41st edition of the Munich Six Days. Apart from the Madison competition and the Derny races, the Sprint riders include Jens Fiedler, Chris Hoy, Arnaud Tournant, RenÚ Wolff and Stefan Nimke. Injured World Champion Theo Bos will be replaced by Barry Forde from Barbados, Keirin bronze medallist at the Stuttgart World Championships.

There will be a 15 pair lineup for the Madison competition in Munich, but no Frank Vandenbroucke. The Belgian, who was to be paired with Jimmi Madsen, phoned Six Day promoter Patrick Sercu before the start to tell him the news, without giving him a specific reason. But VDB's MrBookmaker-Palmans boss Hilaire Van der Schueren told Belgian TV that due to "private problems" he is no longer in good physical condition. "We thought it more advisable to skip Munich," he said.

Vandenbroucke's start in the Six Days of Ghent is also uncertain. His place in Munich has been taken by Wouter van Mechelen (Bel).
