Trackside Ed: The '6 Day' circus has moved from Berlin to Copenhagen and the Ed Hood caravan was hitched up for the ride. After the long journey across the frozen wastelands, the track-centre cabin is set up and it's business as usual for the opening days of the '6 Days' of Copenhagen.

The 2017/18 ‘6 Day’ Season In Numbers

The 2017/18 winter '6 Day' season is over and the velodromes turn to other sports and music for the summer... and in some cases even cycling!

Ed Hood has moved on from the 'lackluster' Berlin '6 Day' to Copenhagen and some hotter action, even if it's cold outside. The atmosphere, music and racing is all part of the '6 Day' fun and Ed captures the first three days in his idiosyncratic words and photos.
