With the new ADT Center Velodrome about to open in the L.A. area, there is renewed interest in track racing (I hope). Roger Young is in charge of the program, and they are opening the track this June 23rd, for juniors to practice, in anticipation of USA Jr Nationals.
Anyway, the on topic question is, what was a "six day", back in the beginning? Did they race for six days, non-stop?
How is it done today?
