Anybody got tickets for Saturday? We're sending a raiding party over from Kent to Koksjide then on to Gent in the evening for the 6.

what an amazing Gent 6 so far, Iljo & O'Shea are still barely in the lead. Marvulli/Marguet set a new track record the last 3 nights in a row. on tuesday, it was the flying lap at 8.57, wed was the 500 meter record, and last night they broke their own record in the flying lap by a couple of hundreths, amazing technique. Marvulli is the master of the hi speed throw in.

Final day on now. Very dynamic race, probably due to the restively short track of 200m.

Good track racing is a much undervalued sporting entertainment. The Olympics,Worlds etc are a bit sanitised (though a good devil in an omnium is a cracking race) but watch some Japanese Kieren, it's manic stuff,love it.
Sometimes, I wish all the bits of my life had an ignore button...

Strong and exciting finale at Amsterdam.

200m tracks (or below if you dare) is the way to go.

de Ketele/van Hoecke the winners.

You think smaller is the future?

The Brits are already working on it. Tiny Marginal Gains ;-)

A bit late coming to this thread for Zesdaagse van Amsterdam, but I couldn't agree more on the poor coverage by CN.

I remember when the site used to give us daily results for every race with a comprehensive report. Now we're lucky to get the daily points total a few days late.

Thankfully there are sites like the one posted by Dazed and Confused and the one I got my live coverage from (http://www.sixdayracing.com/video/ which had live streaming with Dutch, English or German commentary).

The double lap Kenny De Ketele and Gijs Van Hoecke took at the end of the final madison to win the title was six day racing at its best.

After three nights:

1 Niki Terpstra (NED) / Iljo Keisse (BEL) 0 204
2 Kenny de Ketele (BEL) / Jasper de Buyst (BEL) -1 197
3 Jens Mouris (NED) / Wim Stroetinga (NED) -1 111
4 Michael Mørkøv (DEN) / Alex Rasmussen (DEN) -2 173
5 Barry Markus (NED) / Leif Lampater (GER) -3 116
6 Yoeri Havik (NED) / Nick Stöpler (NED) -8 79

Great last madison. Significant pace, almost no time to recover before new attacks started. Can it continue? Doubt it, but we shall see.

Action starts today at 12:30 local.

After 4th round:
1 Kenny de Ketele – Jasper de Buyst (BEL), 250 p.,
2 Iljo Keisse (BEL) – Niki Terpstra (NED), 243 p.,
3 Michael Mørkøv – Alex Rasmussen (DEN), 222 p.,
4 Jens Mouris – Wim Stroetinga (NED), 156 p.,
at 2 laps:
5 Leif Lampater (GER) – Barry Markus (NED), 122 p.

The Danes managed to take a lap in the last madison and we have 4 pairs at the top on equal laps. Could become tactical or quite a bit of anarchy. Race will resume Monday @19:15 (Local).

5 days down:
1 Kenny de Ketele (BEL) / Jasper de Buyst (BEL) 0 308
2 Niki Terpstra (NED) / Iljo Keisse (BEL) -1 295
3 Michael Mørkøv (DEN) / Alex Rasmussen (DEN) -1 292
4 Jens Mouris (NED) / Wim Stroetinga (NED) -1 185
5 Barry Markus (NED) / Leif Lampater (GER) -2 152

Essentially we have 4 teams on same lap with one night to go. This could become a tactical nightmare. Luckily Jens and Wim are 100 points down on the top three teams, which should guarantee aggressive action at least in the final madison.

For me, Keisse and Terpstra looks best taking laps, but they spend lots of energy setting the pace in the peloton.

Action starts around 19:00 (CET), but if you plan on spending just very little time watching the show for the first time, tune in at around 21:45.

Could be a new Six Day in the UK soon:
"FACE Partnership has carefully considered the opportunities around a Six Day event in the UK, and it's an idea we find very exciting," the company's managing director James Pope told Cycling Weekly.

"We've had discussions with Six Day promoters from the continent and it's a format we'd love to bring across the channel if it was viable logistically and commercially.

"The FACE Partnership team is in fact heading to Bremen in Germany this weekend to experience first-hand the excitement and atmosphere of a Six Day race."

It would certainly be supported considering the number
of fans from the UK that cross the channel every year
to take in a couple of nights at Ghent.
