  • Description

    As the first six-day cycle rave of the new season reached its final stages, one man has particular reason for feeling pleased that he is still in a position to grab the honours.

    SYNOPSIS: The Skol Six-Day Cycle Race at Wembley heralds the start of a gruelling indoor season for the top European cycling stars. But for one man the race is just another tough competition as he nears a time when he can at last take a rest. Gerrie Knetemann of Holland is the world professional road racing champion - cycling's most coveted title. Unlike many of the successful indoor track stars now mentally and physically geared for a fresh season of six-day events, Knetemann has been competing all year. Only last month he won the world title, the climax of his career, and yet there is no rest for Knetemann. He is still there challenging for more honours. Reporter Phil Lines asked him about the six-day events.
