Laura Kenny, the most decorated female track cyclist in the history of the Olympic Games, is set to star at Phynova Six Day London 2019 and Six Day Manchester 2020.

The four-time Olympic champion is Great Britain’s most successful-ever female athlete, with seven World Championships and 12 European Championship titles to her name.

Kenny will be partnered in London by Elinor Barker, reigniting a partnership that saw them grab team pursuit gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“I love Six Day and can’t wait to compete in London and again in Manchester,” said Kenny.

“There’s just nothing like it in the racing calendar, with the music, lights and fans creating the most amazing atmosphere.

“Being paired with Elinor again will be great fun, and we definitely know how to bring the best out of each other, like we did at the 2016 Olympics.

“We’re great friends, but also big rivals, so will be challenging each other to perform and hopefully bring home the gold for the UK fans.”

The 27-year-old will also headline the second edition of Six Day Manchester, set for the National Cycling Centre on 13-15 March.

There will be cycling superstars aplenty at both events with British pair Katie Archibald and Neah Evans set to duel for home honours later this month.

Evans is a familiar face to Six Day fans having claimed overall victory at the inaugural Six Day Hong Kong last season, pipping Emily Nelson to the title by two points.

Nelson will join fellow Brit Manon Lloyd on the start line, with Ireland well-represented by Alice Sharpe and Emily Kay and Shannon McCurley and Mia Griffin.

Other stars in the women’s line-up include former world scratch race champion Rachele Barbieri, who will be partnered by Simona Frapporti.

For Russia, bronze medalist in the individual pursuit at the recent European Games, Tamara Dronova is paired with Maria Averina, a multiple medalist in UCI track world cup rounds.
