Six Day Cycling is a combination of the most entertaining elements of track cycling and non-sporting entertainment.A Six Day race is one of the oldest forms of the sport, but the new version sees the event carried out in a party atmosphere.And out on the track riders compete in multiple events over the six days for an overall title.
What are the events?
Six Day cycling features an array of different types of race:
A pair of riders will take turns to race, switching roles with a hand sling to propel their partner forward.
The rider at the back of the race will be eliminated once every two laps, creating a string of sprint finishes during the race.
Each rider has their own pace-setting ‘Derny’, allowing them to benefit from a constant slipstream to reach extremely high speeds.
The Omnium is a multi-event race featuring of four different disciplines – a 7.5km Scratch Race, a 7.5km Tempo Race, an Elimination Race and finally, a 20km Points Race.
200m Time Trial
Sprinters race individually for two and a half laps as fast as they can.
Another event for the sprinters sees the riders jostle for position behind the pace-setting Derny, who moves out of the way for the last two and a half laps.
Who are the riders?
Britain Mark Cavendish and Peter Kennaugh are the star attractions for the home crowd in London.
Cav needs little introduction. The Manxman returned to track cycling in 2016 and won a World title in the Madison and an Olympic silver medal in the Omnium. Much to the delight of track cycling fans, Cav opted to continue his track career beyond the Rio Games, partnering Bradley Wiggins in the Six Days Series as they finished second in London last year and won Six Days Ghent.
