Gent Six Day 2010 – Third Night, Iljo Keeps the Lead but Frays a Little


I just received an email from Rapha; “The New Tweed Softshell and City Riding Collection” – that’s exactly what I need, tweed. Set a new trend at the Kuipke. We’re here for the Gent Six Day 2010.

Maybe not – my shorts have caused enough raised eyebrows.

Night three?

Gent Six Day 2010
They’re off!

Lots of Dernys, lots of beer – Franco sick, Iljo fraying a little at the edges, the Danes calm under fire and bed for us at 03:45.

In the mornings I feel like one of those people in the films who have miraculously survived a plane crash, they stumble dazed and bleeding among the rescue teams.

Or in my case – the beer delivery guys.
