Ron Webb


It was with sadness that we learned of the death of Mr. Ron Webb, professional bike rider, father of the modern Six Day format and track builder of renown.

There have also been many tributes sent to us by his friends around the globe, including former world champion riders, and we’ve added some of these here.
