World Champion and Six Day 2016 gold medallist Elinor Barker has been confirmed for Six Day London 2018.
Barker joins fellow Olympic and World Champion Katie Archibald in the field, with the pair set to join forces in the first ever women’s Madison to be held at Six Day London.
The 22-year-old finished seventh in London last year, before going on to win Six Day Amsterdam and take the overall title at the Six Day Series final in Mallorca.
And despite her self-confessed under-par showing at London last year, Barker revealed it was the whole Six Day experience that convinced her to come back. “London was really, really enjoyable. I enjoyed it almost as a fan, just being able to see how many people enjoy coming to see cycling every night, for six nights,”
Elinor and Katie will be strong favourites at Six Day London this October, however the addition of UCI points the standard of riding with be higher than ever, with riders chasing point to qualify for the World Championship.
“Every year these Six Day series events are getting bigger and better, there are more races, the prize money is increasing, there are UCI points on offer and it makes it so much more exciting because more and more riders want to be there and race really hard.”
