Ghent Six Day 2016

Six Day track events have been around for many, many years and are a great way for pro riders to keep their fitness up during the cold and wet winter months. Ghent is probably the most famous of the six day races and this years event was packed full of top names aiming to win. This included names such as Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish, Elia Viviani & Iljo Keisse, Kenny De Ketele & Moreno De Pauw. All of these riders have a glittering track career and have all won some big tracks events in the past.

For British duo Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish, this would be something of a farewell ride for them. Wiggins has indicated on numerous occasions that he would retire after this event and riding with Cavendish as World Madison Champions, this event could not have gone better for them.The end result was never really in doubt and Wiggins and Cavendish won overall in Ghent and thus cemented their great partnership in the cycling history books.

Cavendish has had a fabulous season and prolonged his race season to ride in Ghent with Wiggins, in Wiggins last race as a professional (although this now looks questionable?) Below I added a short video showing just how much their partnership meant to each other.

Safe riding bike riders,

Arrivée - Winning Style
