Copenhagen Six Day 2012 – Day One


The gun fires, the bongos rattle, ‘Cara Mia’ blasts, the rattle of chains and rumble of rubber on wood builds and the chase which kicks off the 50th Copenhagen Six Day is up and running.

But it’s not any old chase, since I first walked up the steps from the tunnel when we arrived here on Wednesday afternoon the lap board has been displaying a short but grim message — 400.

That’s 400 laps at 250 metres for each lap; I’ll help with the arithmetic — 100 kilometres.

Copenhagen Six Day
400 laps is 60 miles. Two hours minute on minute off, anyone?
