Photos and pictures from the second day of the 57th Bremen Six Day Race (Sixdays Bremen), a traditional cycling event that takes place this year from 12 January to 15 January.
Highlights of the second day of the Sixdays Bremen: The Great Hunt took centre stage, with the young team of Philip Heijnen (Netherlands) and Matias Malberg (Denmark, Team Halle 7) initially leading. However, they were overtaken by the German-Belgian duo of Nils Politt and Lindsay de Vylder (Team Stark Gebäudereinigung), who took the lead with a solo lap win and caused quite a stir.
Alessa-Catriona Pröpster set a new track record for the Bremen lap with a time of 9.360 seconds. The team Denis Rugovac/Elmar Abma (Czech-Dutch, Team Plattner) also set a track record with 26.990 seconds in the 500 metre time trial.
