DBK-Riders Tour

Tuesday, 26 October 2010

The fifth leg of DKB Riders Tour starts tomorrow at the German Classics in Hannover. Riders Tour started in 2001, and runs over six shows in Germany that finishes with a final where the title “Rider of the year” is awarded the best rider. As of this year Riders Tour have a new sponsor in DKB, which is short for Die Deutsche Kreditbank AB and thus the new name - DKB-Riders Tour.

The tour kicked off at Hamburger Derby in June where Carsten-Otto Nagel ended up in first place. The second leg was in Wiesbaden, also in June, where Denis Lynch was at the top of the list. Balve Optimum arranged the third leg and Albert Zoer was best there, while Marcus Ehning won the fourth leg in Paderborn and now it is time for the fifth leg in Hannover. The final is at Munich Indoors in the beginning of November.

Ludger Beerbaum got the title “Rider of the year” last year, before Marcus Ehning and Gilbert Böckmann, all three riders from Germany. At the moment, with two more shows to go, the tour has an Irish leader; Denis Lynch.
