6 Day Racing's history
The Six Day Races are a legacy tradition in London and around the world that dates back more than a century. The origins of the races started with David Stanton in 1878, who set out to ride 1,000 miles in six days at Agricultural Hall on a bet. He accomplished this amazing feat, riding 18 out of 24 hours each day. After this initial event, the races spread to many different parts of the world and got their modern iteration in the United States, but now are mainly a European event. The main event still remains, to this day, the epic endurance event, but it is now a team event instead of an event for a single rider. The winner of the race is the team that completes the most laps in the course of the six days, and there are more time constraints on the races. The Six Day Races ran with regularity up until 1980, but then there was a long hiatus until the races were revived in 2009 and again in 2015.
6 Day Racing's greatest moments
Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins teamed up last year for the six-day racing event in London, and placed second behind the Belgian team, Kenny de Ketele and Moreno de Pauw. They then went on to win the Ghent Six Day. Cavendish is a powerhouse in the cycling world and is set to join the ranks of the cyclist this year as well, though since Wiggins has retired, his partner has not yet been announced. With 6 Day Racing tickets, spectators can cheer on Cavendish's second attempt to beat the competition.
