Blythe and Dibben bolster Six Day London track series

 It’s like a rave with bikes - the party atmosphere of the Six-Day series is unrivalled.

It’s like a rave with bikes - the party atmosphere of the Six-Day series is unrivalled.

The road season’s over and it’s time for the party to move indoors with the return of Six Day racing to London’s Olympic Park velodrome.

The Phynova Six Day London is like a week-long cycling blowout, like one long party, complete with DJs, drinks and riders tearing it up around the track.

The event has just added another couple of top tier riders to the roster in the form of Jon Dibben from Team Sky and Adam Blythe, the former national road race champion.

Blythe, who will begin the 2019 WorldTour season with Lotto Soudal after the collapse of Aqua Blue Sport, recently slammed the 3T bike the team rode as the reason for the demise of the team. He was particularly critical of the single chainring Sram One-By groupset, which he likened to a “track bike with gears”.

After riding a season on such a bike, Blythe could be well prepared for the Six-Day event. He is competing for the second time, having first ridden the boards in 2015. The GB lineup also includes Andy Tennant and Chris Latham.
