BUNDABERG'S favourite Swiss cyclist Franco Marvulli placed sixth at the Australian Madison Championships held at the Darebin International Sports Centre in Melbourne over the weekend.

Marvulli teamed up with Tristan Marquet for the race and the pair was not expecting the average speed to be 54kph - they tried numerous attacks but could not beat the winning team of Leigh Howard and Kenny De Ketele.

Andreas Muller and Marcel Barth who were also in Bundaberg for the cycling spectacular came third in the race.

Marvulli's next event on his Australian tour is this weekend in Rosebery Tasmania.
