6 Day Racing to debut in US in 2008

Ok, it will only be 3 Day racing to start but a start it is.

After being a world leader in track racing in the early 20th century, the velodrome essentially went the way of the Dodo in the United States. Interbike and Las Vegas are looking to change all that and I am all for it. Anything that combines cycling, beer, and Erik Zabel has to be a good thing, right? Let's hope it catches on and 2009 leads to at least a couple of genuine 6 Day events stateside. If one came within an 8 hour drive of me, I would definitely go. Anyone else?
