In any sport there comes a time when the order changes, the old stars fade away and the new ones begin to shine brighter.
But Dane Marc Hester is no super nova, shining brightly then gone, it’s taken him several years to get to where he is in the Six Day constellation.
Despite being only 25 Hester has ridden nearly 60 Six Day races, so his three podiums this year — third at Grenoble and Bremen plus second in Copenhagen – are no surprise, more the result of a steady ascent through the heavens from UIV cup winner in 2005 to genuine contender for wins in 2011.
As well as improved results this Six Day season Hester has netted himself a contract with Michael Rasmussen’s controversial Christina Watches team for 2011.
In between races at the Six Days of Copenhagen Hester took time to talk VeloVeritas.
