Theo BosTheo Bos and Graeme Brown has decided to ride the 2014 Rotterdam Six-Day, from 2 to 7 January.
"I am looking forward to it," Theo Bos said. "Graeme is a rider with lots of experience on the track."

"A podium place is our ambition but we really want to ride for the overall victory," Bos stated.

Theo Bos has taken three sprint world titles and took the gold on the kilometre in Los Angeles in 2005. He won the Olympic silver medal at the Olympic Games in Athens.

Graeme Brown is not a bad track rider either, having won two gold medals in Athens: in the team pursuit and in the Madison with Stuart O'Grady.

The pair will meet strong competition in Rotterdam.

Last year's winners Iljo Keisse and Niki Terpstra will return. Keisse won in Zürich this year with Sylvan Dillier.

The reigning world champions in Madison, Vivien Brisse and Morgan Kneisky, will also start. Just as Wim Stroetinga who pairs with Orica-Greenedge's Jens Mouris, and also the Dutch riders Yoeri Havik and Nick Stöpler.

Of course, Belgian pair Kenny de Ketele/Jasper de Buyst should be considered favorites, as well. De Buyst recently won the Ghent Six with Leif Lampater, and De Ketele won Amsterdam with Gijs van Hoecke.

Michael Mørkøv/Alex Rasmussen, Tristan Marguet/Franco Marvulli, Raymond Kreder/Leif Lampater, Daniel Holloway/Guy East, Michel Kreder/Wesley Kreder and Melvin Boskamp/Jesper Asselman will also be on the start line.
