The Bordeaux Six Day Race

October 15th-20th 1997

The first race of the European 1997/98 six day cycle racing season!

Angus Fraser, soigneur to the stars / to the hot and sweaty (delete as applicable) reports that 16 teams started and 15 teams finished, Urs Freuler's partner having declared on the third night that the race was too hard. A man after my own heart.....
