The world’s best cyclists competing in a gladiatorial arena over three intense nights.
Prudential will be the title sponsor as the international cycling series Six Day extends its footprint into Asia for the first time, with the Hong Kong stopover joining established events in six other cities across three continents. PRURide Six Day Hong Kong will be the fifth race in the new seven-stop 2018/19 series which started in London last October and ends in Brisbane in April 2019.
PRURide Six Day Hong Kong will feature the world’s best male, female and junior riders who will descend on Hong Kong in March for an action-packed three-day event, set to include all the usual Six Day track racing formats which will be presented in a spectacular arena environment. The racing will include the Madison, time trials, team eliminations, scratch races and points race formats. 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.
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. 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 will participate alongside international Olympic gold medallists and household names; and with UCI ranking points, counting towards Olympic qualification, up for grabs, spectators can look forward to witnessing the world’s best compete in Hong Kong in a party atmosphere.
Lead by Olympic and world championship medallist Sarah Lee Wai Sze and Asian Games Champions Leung Chun-wing and Cheung King-lok, Hong Kong’s track cyclists have enjoyed notable success on the international stage in recent years. They will relish the opportunity to test themselves against the world’s elite.
Tickets will be released on the 22nd January 2019. Book your tickets here!
