Comments Comments

With Six Day Melbourne to take centre stage tonight at Melbourne Arena, the full rider list has been confirmed. 

A strong Australian contingent features across the Elite Men and Elite Women fields, headlined by 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Kelland O'Brien and 2012 Olympic bronze medallist Annette Edmondson. 

In the sprint category, Malaysian sensation Azizul Awang and former Australian, now Russian, Shane Perkins will be hot favourites. 

A combination of bikes, beats and beers, the Six Day Series takes a traditional form of cycling and mixes it with an exciting party atmosphere to form the ultimate sporting event. Riders from Australia and abroad will descend upon Melbourne this week for what is set to be a knock-out show.

The Australian edition of the series will be an action-packed three-day event with all the usual Six Day track racing formats, including the Madison, time trials, team eliminations, scratch races and points races in a spectacular arena environment.

Six Day Melbourne will be held on 7, 8, 9 February, 2019 at Melbourne Arena with the Series Final held in Brisbane 12, 13, 14 April, 2019 at the Anna Meares Velodrome.
