Today in Sport 2 January 2014

Today sees the start of the first six day track race of 2014. The six days of Rotterdam (6 Daagse van Rotterdam) enters its 32nd year, these events based around Madison races used to attract some of the top road cyclists in the world, but with the UCI World Tour now including the Santos Tour Down Under and Tours in the Middle East at this time of year that is not going to happen these days and that has led to the decline in the six days circuit.

The riders don't ride solidly on each day, but the Madison will take a certain amount of each days itinerary but now there are other events that fit in around the main reason for being there. That is the reason that Rotterdam is one of the six days that survives because of the diversity in the schedule.
