The An Post – Chain Reaction duo of Glenn O’Shea and Shane Archbold are set to line up in the Ghent Six-Day starting on November 18th.
O’Shea was victorious two years ago, when he was paired with Iljo Keisse. This year, Keisse lines up with his Omega Pharma – Quick Step teammate Mark Cavendish. Amongst the other favourites are the reigning Madison world champions David Muntaner and Albert Torres. Last year’s race was won by Jasper de Buyst and Leif Lampater and both start again this year, albeit with different partners.
Both An Post riders are set to leave the Irish team at the end of the season with O’Shea signing for Team Budget Forklifts whilst Archbold is joining Team Bora – Argon 18.
