13 April 2018

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

So here we are, after 18 hard days of racing across three events, the 2018 Six Day Series concludes tomorrow in Mallorca.

It will all be over for another year as the best track riders on the planet do battle on one night in Spain in a bid to be crowned the overall series winner.

So without further ado, here’s everything you need for one huge night of racing.

What?

One night only to round off the 2018 Six Day Series, brought to you from the sunny shores of Mallorca.

When?

April 14

Where?

The Palma Arena

How to watch

Tune in at 8:30pm on Eurosport to keep catch your last sight of this season’s series.

How to follow

You can keep up to date with all the results, highlights and behind the scenes action via @SixDayCycling on TwitterInstagram and Facebook.

Ones to watch

Men

The men’s elite field is, as ever, littered with the world’s best on the track and there are none more so than reigning Madison world champion Roger Kluge.

Kluge teamed with fellow German Theo Reinhardt to claim world gold last month but this time will partner German Henning Bommel.

If the German pair want success in the Mediterranean then they will have to navigate their way past reigning Six Day champions Kenny de Ketele and Moreno de Pauw from Belgium who are plotting a successful defence of their crown.

Yoeri Havik and Wim Stroetinga are the only pair in Mallorca with a Six Day Series victory under their belts this season, having beaten the Belgians in Berlin.

Two riders who will undoubtedly benefit from the backing of a partisan Spanish crowd will be world silver medallists Sebastian Mora Vedri and Albert Torres, while Marc Hester and Felix English will make an unpredictable and exciting team in The Palma Arena.

Women

When we brag about bringing you the world’s greatest cyclists, look no further than triple world champion Kirsten Wild for proof.

The Dutchwoman won points race, scratch and omnium crowns on home boards earlier this year along with a silver in the Madison and will be buoyed by the success.

Berlin champion Laurie Berthon will take some beating having proven herself to be to be a master over the individual races back in January.

Canada’s Jasmin Duehring secured individual race victories in London and finished runner-up in Copenhagen before too picking up a bronze medal herself at the worlds and she will be out for success in Mallorca.

Elisa Balsamo and Maria Giulia Confalonieri also promise to pose a threat towards the top of the leaderboard, winners of the Berlin Madison.

Not to be missed

Mr Levy-Levy

His impressive tan is evidence that Six Day stalwart Max Levy has been sunning himself for some time in Mallorca in the build-up, but the relaxed demeanour of the German powerhouse will make way for ruthless competitiveness when the gun goes.

The multiple Olympic, world and European medallist will be looking to add to his Berlin victory when he makes his Six Day Mallorca debut and given his immense pedigree on the boards, few would bet against him.

A Wild Ride

She’s been hitting the streets on two wheels over recent weeks but we’ve pulled Kirsten Wild back indoors for one night to hit the Six Day boards.

This time she’ll do so with the swagger of a reigning treble world champ and that, in itself, is an opportunity to savour.

The big finale!

Looking to defend a points lead? Or needing to make up ground on those ahead? Well, there’s one last chance for glory and that’s in the 60-minute Madison Finale.

Confusion will reign, laps will be gained and lost, the lead will change countless times and after a breathless hour of racing the Six Day Series 2018 champions will be crowned.

Iberostar, the official hotel partner of the Six Day Series, have a range of hotels in Mallorca that are perfect for cycling holidays. For more information click here.
