The last night of the 22nd Hofbräu-Six Day in Stuttgart, Germany, started out with bad news: Scott McGrory suffered a broken rib and had to withdraw from racing. Nevertheless, the organisers of the event have announced an overall positive outcome of the Six Day. With more than 48,000 spectators, the Stuttgart velodrome has had a exceptional number of visitors during the last few evenings. Next year, the race will be held from January 19-25, and the organisers hope to top this year's result to keep the tradition alive. Main sponsor Hofbräu, a beer brewery, will continue to support the Six Day until 2008 at least, so the future for track lovers in Southern Germany looks good.
