Kenny De Ketele aast op derde eindzege op Zesdaagse van Gent

Kenny De Ketele and tasted twice of the victory in the Ghent ‘Kuipke’. In 2011, he won the Ghent six-day with the German Robert Bartko, in 2014, with Jasper De Buyst. This year, he wants to be again on the highest spot, now with Moreno De Pauw at his side.

De Ketele and De Pauw, last year, second behind Mark Cavendish and the now stopped Bradley Wiggins, will start as the big favourite to the command. Even more so because six winner Iljo Keisse, by means of a hand injury. The Belgian duo can be a lot of resistance to expect from the French Morgan Kneisky and Benjamin Thomas, the world champions ploegkoers. Also the Australians Cameron Meyer and Callum Scotson are highly appreciated, just as the Italians Elia Viviani and Michele Scartezzini.

“I’m just ready in time for the Ghent six-day, thanks to physiotherapist Frank Wezenbeek”, according to The Ketele Monday the fans not to worry. “At the beginning of september I came to a heavy fall in the kermiskoers of Izegem. Thanks Frank, I am where I need to stand. I insert my ambition is not under the chairs or benches. With The Peacock, I want absolutely this six-day win.”

“Scartezzini is perhaps the least known pistier of the topkoppels, but I know him very well. Michele is a versatile rider, which is not a lot of adjustment problems will know in the ‘kuipke’. That was last year, Viviani something else. Who saw the first days all the colors of the rainbow, but grew halfway through the six days. Viviani will Scartezzini already have informed the way here gekoerst. It is a pity that Iljo Keisse is not there, but if he did start, that would be nothing to our ambitions have changed. It will now be the full ‘Kuipke’ on our hands will have. With Moreno I a strong team. We spend more time together than with our girlfriends.”

“The six days of Ghent is truly unique. There are few six-day cycle races where you from the center square really up to the riders touch. In Ghent this is the case. On Thursday and Saturday evenings is that sometimes even a little too much the case, but we are happy to be there. The six days of Ghent is by many hailed as the Ghent Festivities of the winter. That makes it special. The fact that it is here every evening will sit, gives us some more strength, and especially desire to win.”
