Keisse and Terpstra to Race 6-Days of Rotterdam

Wednesday 2 January 2013 - 18:52

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team riders Iljo Keisse and Niki Terpstra will race together at 6 Days of Rotterdam, from January 3rd until January 8th.

Keisse won 6 Days of Rotterdam in 2007 and 2010, while Terpstra is seeking his first victory at the event.

"I'm really happy to race with Iljo," Terpstra said. "This is our 4th 6-days together. We rode twice in Amsterdam, we won one time. We also rode once together already in Rotterdam. We were 4th last year and now we really would like to improve this result. I'm in good condition and I'm looking forward to this race."

"I won this race two times in the past," Keisse said. "This race will be the only 6-days I will do until next winter. Normally in the past Janaury was a quite hot period with a lot of 6-days, but this year I will participate only in Rotterdam to focus the attention then on the road. I know that Niki is super motivated. I will give my best to try to get this race."
