Preview: The Dave Creasy Memorial 6

Home » Track cycling

The Dave Creasy Memorial Six - a huge success in 2011 – returns to Herne Hill Velodrome on Sunday 9th September 2012. If you haven’t quite had your fix of track racing by then due to the British summer weather, or didn’t manage to get Olympic tickets, then this event will be sure to provide some entertaining bike racing, whether you’re a spectator or rider.

The ‘Six Days of Ghent’ theme is back in with a vengenace, with riders undertaking flying Madison 200m time trial, Madison Elimination race, Derny races, and the 30km ‘Ploegkoers’ Madison among the races in the Dave Creasy memorial trophy for the senior riders, with cheesy Flandrian Euro pop, beer, frites with Mayo, and Bratwurst sausages to keep the crowd fed throughout the day. Spectators get in FREE!

For 2012, there will be a full Women’s only programme of non Madison events including a derny race, and a full Madison programme for youth riders, taking the form of the ‘DSC Talents Trophy’, inspired by the UIV Talents Cup events at Six Day Races, with ‘DSC’ keeping the memory of Dave alive. ‘Mr Creasy’s Danish line race’ returns for the younger youth riders, and there will also be a full programme of non Madison support races for 3rd and 4th category riders.

Entries for Senior and Youth Madison close on August 24th with no Entry on the line for riders in the Senior Madison. Youth riders will be placed in the youth event, not in the senior races. Entry on the line is available for other categories, but due to the popularity of the event last year, entry in advance is advised.
