Robbe Ghys and Lindsay De Vylder won the Six Days of Ghent for the second year in a row last Sunday. But rumors of rigging quickly surfaced.
Just like last year, this year was also very exciting until the end of the Six Days of Ghent. We had to wait until the last team race to find out who could win the prestigious race. Ghys and De Vylder defeated world champions Yoeri Havik and Jan-Willem van Schip.
The Six Days of Ghent is a real popular festival with a lot of interaction between the riders and the public. In recent years, however, sports have become much more important, Jules Hesters told us The newspapaer.
“It is written in the media that this is a fair, but it is not like it used to be. Everyone is driving hard to win. Tuur Dens almost fainted here once.”
Ghys, who was crowned winner for the second year in a row, joined Hesters. “People who say that this is an agreed matter are always welcome to intervene.”
