The Six Day Series are track cycling events that take place all over the world, combining top indoor riders competing in velodrome events with a party atmosphere. This was the first time the Six Day came to Manchester, to the home of British Cycling in the HSBC National Cycling Centre.
An all-star line-up included a host of World Champions and Olympic medallists. They joined six time British Olympic champion Jason Kenny in what was a family affair, competing alongside his wife- Britain’s most successful female Olympian, Laura Kenny. This was the Kennys’ first time in the Six Day format and the crowd loved them!
Saturday and Sunday were well-attended by spectators and we also had a top line up of media organisations, including Getty Images, Sportsbeat, the Press Association, Eurosport, the Times, the Sunday Times and a host of cycling specialist magazines and photographers. Happily our key experienced six day volunteers turned out to help and between us we kept a media workroom, track central, the track apron, a press tribune and photo concourse positions served & our clients happy.
