As the little velodrome of Burnaby, Canada, has grown over the past decade so its Six Day race. This year's race, scheduled for December 31 to January 5, is expected to be bigger than any of its previous editions. Organizers will have more of the same but on a grander scale, including an international Sprint and Keirin competition featuring some of the top riders in North America.
The main showcase in 2006 was the professional men's Madison Teams. Organizers had a strong list of riders: the Canadian National team, the Canadian Champion team, the Symmetrics Pro team, ProTour rider Tyler Farrar paired with Kenny Williams for the Cofidis team, the US National Team, the USA U23 and Hungarian U23 Champions paired together and local Symmetrics professional paired with local junior Cody Campbell.
More details are expected as the Six Day draws nearer.
