That’s how Robert had wanted it, to finish the last race for the time being with a good feeling. For this to come true, he worked and fought hard for 6 days.

He won the lap record race on five of the six days, inching closer and closer to his own track record and finally scraping it by just 12.521 seconds on the final night. “The record time of 12.441 seconds will stand for years,” Robert on this back in 2014. This is how it should remain two years later. In addition, there were day wins and good placings in the sprint and keirin, which finally led to the final on Tuesday evening with Erik Balzer, who was almost tied on points and in captivating form.

It is difficult to describe what was already happening in the Velodrome on the days before, during the last lap record race and the final, especially acoustically. Night after night, the sprinters caused a sensation among the more than 10,000 visitors every day. We thank all sponsors, supporters, friends and fans for the great support for Robert at the Velodrome!

“For the first time without pressure to perform, without the next task, completely unaccustomed to driving off the track,” Robert then said on Wednesday morning, the day after.

We now wish Robert a successful “shutdown” and clean “reset” We’ll keep you/you updated!
