„It was great to finally race a Six Day event in Australia!“

With Berlin Six Day already in the legs as well as London Six late last year, it was great to finally have the opportunity to race a Six Day event in Australia. For the first time Madison Group brought the show to Melbourne for three action packed nights of racing. Of course Pushbikers Josh & Stephen were there!

It was a great atmosphere within the velodrome and a lot of fun to finally compete in front of a home crowd. Personally, Josh and I have steadily been improving and moving up the classement each time we race together. We placed consistently in the chase events with Josh even picking up a victory in the Points Race on Day 1.

Six day racing is a stark contrast between putting the feet up during the day and relaxing before switching them back on in the evening to set the track on fire! Melbourne Six seemed to be a success with the fans and the riders certainly had a great time so we hope to see the event return in the future. I know the Europeans definitely enjoyed the warm weather!

The season certainly continues to heat up with the Bundaberg Carnival, Bendigo Madison & Manchester Six Day to come in the six weeks. Fingers crossed Josh and I are able to finish the Six Day season in the top positions to earn our place on the start line for the Six Day Finale in Brisbane 12-14 April.
