What is the Six Day series?
The inaugural PRURide Six Day Hong Kong, sponsored by Prudential, held in March 2019, featured the world’s best male and female riders who descended on Hong Kong for an action-packed three-day event, including all the usual Six Day track racing formats which was presented in a spectacular arena environment. The racing included the Madison, time trials, team eliminations, scratch races and points race formats.
Madison Sports Group have reinvented six day cycling – a traditional form of track cycling first raced in 1878 – with cutting-edge, world class presentation and entertainment. With lights down and music turned up, the house DJ keeps the party atmosphere going throughout the racing in a way not previously seen at Hong Kong’s velodrome. The London-based sports promoter has revolutionised the 140-year old sport, and created the world’s first Six Day Series in 2016.
Riders from The Cycling Association of Hong Kong participated alongside international Olympic gold medalists and household names; and with UCI ranking points, counting towards Olympic qualification, up for grabs, spectators witnessed the world’s best compete in Hong Kong in a party atmosphere.
Lead by Olympic and world championship medalist Sarah Lee Wai Sze and Asian Games Champions Leung Chun-wing and Cheung King-lok, Hong Kong’s track cyclists have performed a great deal of speed and intensity at the PRURide Six Day Hong Kong event with the world’s elite to create some fantastic excitement for the Hong Kong public.
