Today's the first day of the Rotterdam 6 Day, running 2nd-7th January - and we can watch it live!
If you've never seen 6-day, it's fast and furious track racing, with a ton of different events every night, and points towards the overall classification. You can read more on Rotterdam's explanation page. Plus music, half-time entertainment and a LOT of beer for the spectators...
It kicks off today at 17:00 CET (6pm UK, 1pm USA Eastern and some ungodly hour of the morning in Aus) and the stream will be hhere, the schedule's here and the list of riders, with their jerseys, is here. There's a ton more information on their website, and you can also follow the race organisers on twitter where they're posting photos and such.
Here's a list of some of the teams, thanks to Fausto Coppi's Handsaw, who was the one who reminded me all about this (THANKYOU!)
Theo Bos / Graeme Brown
Iljo Keisse / Niki Terpstra
Michael Morkov / Alex Rasmussen
Jens Mouris / Wim Stroetinga
The Kissin’ Kreder Kousins
I really recommend this, because the atmosphere is always fun, and the racing's exciting. If you've never watched any, please do ask any questions at all in the comments, there's sure to be someone here who's more than happy to help!
