  • Description

    Teams of cyclists from all over Europe were at Wembley Stadium, London on Friday (15 September) for the start of the 1972 Skol 6 event...six days of gruelling sprint and relay contests.

    As a warm-up, competitors took part in a 50-lap 'tempo' race where speed is the all-important factor. The basis of the Skol 6 event, though, is the 'chase', where tow-men cycle teams take on their rivals in relay style in order to gain a whole lap's advantage to win.

    The most formidable challenge this year comes from Britisher Tony Cowland, teamed up with Patrick Sercu of Belgium. They can expect to be threatened, through, by the next favourites, Porter (Great Britain) and Fritz (West Germany).
