London 6 Day

On Monday Me and Kathryn traveled down to the Lee Valley Velodrome in London to watch the London 6 Day Track Event. It is the first 6 Day Event to be held in the capital for 35 years and taking place between October 18th and October 23rd. The schedule that we had the privilege of watching was:

  • U23 Talent Cup.
  • 20km Madison.

  • Sprinters Final.
  • 500m Madison Time Trial.
  • Keirin Heats.
  • 500m Madison time Trial.
  • Keirin Finals.
  • Final Madison.

The final Madison was also an unknown distance for the riders which made it very interesting with laps being taken throughout the race. It was a thoroughly enjoyable night and I am sure we will be making similar trips in the future.
