SIX DAYS OF BERLIN: U23 FINALE


Madison racing is pretty crazy and this POV video seems to capture it all: the surges, the sprints, the handslings, the crashes, the points, the glory and the mediocre German rock band. Just multiply that by six and you’ve got the 102nd Six Days Of Berlin.
SIX DAY RACING IN LOS ANGELES 1973 

Look, I know everyone is paying attention to some other issue in competitive cycling this week but what I really want to know is…  why can’t we have events like this in America anymore?

COPENHAGEN 6 DAY 

The Copenhagen Six started up yesterday and will be going on through the 7th at Denmark’s Ballerup Arena.  Head over to Dancing On The Pedals for a complete recap and report from the first day of racing.

If I can find some kind of video feed I’ll post it up but in the meantime, check out more shots on DOTP’s Flickr.

GRENOBLE SIX: TRACKSTANDERS 

I love this shot from Fenlandsnapper at the Grenoble Six Day Race a few weeks ago.  The trackstanding contest lasted for 33 minutes and featured some truly legendary trackies.  Here’s what Fenlandsnapper says about it:

« One of the features of the Saturday evening at the Grenoble 6 Day track event in 2011 was a track stand competition. The participants were the sprinters at the event with a guest appearance by Arnaud Tournant (center) the world trackstanding record holder (45 minutes).  After about 10 minutes, these were the three remaining riders. François Pervis (right) was the first to falter after about 20 minutes I think.  The other two lasted to 33 minutes.  Grégory Baugé (left) won by outlasting Arnaud Tournant by a minute. »
