Sixdays Berlin
Professional cycling and party - this combination is offered by a six-day race.
The first one took place in 1875 in Birmingham, England; Berlin did not follow until 1909, but it is the first six-day race in continental Europe.
Many of the world's best cyclists are at the start and participate in different races in a team of two.
Next to sports, the public can be entertained with music and other performances.
Even though the climax of the popularity of the six-day races is in the "Golden Twenties", the special atmosphere in the Velodrom still has a certain fascination.
