“Like a hurricane Robert Förstemann swept through the Berlin Velodrome! But he wasn’t the only one to put in a terrific performance in the lap record race of the “Wolfram” Champions Sprint. Four out of six riders broke the 13-second mark. Förstemann took first place in front of cheering crowds with a time of 12.611 seconds. Erik Balzer was close behind with a time of 12.634 seconds. Damian Zieliński from Poland did the lap in 12.782 seconds! We take our hats off!” This is how the Berlin Six-Day Race describes Robert’s second victory on the second day in the lap record race on its Facebook page. In the
After the first two days, Robert leads the overall standings with 31 points ahead of Erik Balzer (29 points).

The “Berliner Kurier” in particular also reports daily on the cycling spectacle in the Velodrom. In yesterday’s issue, Dajana Rubert wrote about Robert’s “messed up” 2015 season, his specific situation, his plans and also about the termination of cooperation with his coach Emanuel Raasch.

We wish Robert continued success on the next 4 race days!
