Biography

Bruno Risi is one of the all-time six-days racing greats, having won 61 events between 1992 and 2010, most of his wins with Kurt Betschaert or Franco Marvulli as his partner. Betschaert and Risi collected 37 wins together, making them the most successful couple in six-day history. Risi also applied his experience in the points race and Madison competitions outside six-days events, and with success. He won five world titles in the points race (1991-amateur, 1992, 1994, 1999 and 2001), and two in the Madison (2003, 2007 – both with Marvulli), adding three more medals in other years. At the 2004 Olympics, Marvulli and Risi also placed second in the Madison.
