Ghent-Six is a track cycling event held annually in Ghent, Belgium.
The 2022 event will take place November 15-20.
Here, we’ve put together an easy-to-follow guide to the Ghent Sixes match.
Well, to put it simply, it happened in six days.
But if we want more bones, here’s more information on the history of the Six Days Race. It started in the late 1800’s in New York’s Madison Square Garden – Madison’s hometown.
Over six days and nights, two teams competed for 24 hours, with one rider racing and the other resting. Sounds brutal, right?
24 hour races stopped in the 1960’s, European races stopped this first, simply because it was stupid and the fact that drivers would neutralize races for hours at night and the crowds weren’t exactly keen Yu sticks to approx.
Believe it or not, Six Days of Ghent is a six-day race, and this year’s race runs from Tuesday 15th November to Sunday 20th November, and the race goes into the late hours of the morning, Sunday at 6pm
Six Days of Ghent runs for five evenings from Tuesday to Saturday, and one Sunday afternoon. Races end at 1am or 2am (6pm for Sunday afternoon races).
