Women's Madison added for 2018

We are delighted to announce the addition of a 2 event women’s Madison race to this year’s programme. On Sunday at Herne Hill, there will be a 200m TT and ploegkoers as part of a short Madison omnium for the women’s pairs. This will be separate to the two-day omnium and riders must enter in advance (entry £8) online. Riders do not have to do the omnium if they only wish to do the Madison.

 

We see this as a great development from previous years where we have had a simple Madison scratch. We believe this is a step to an eventual two-day Madison to match the men’s competition.

 

We can also announce changes to the two-day omnium programme with the addition of a tempo race on the Sunday in place of the individual pursuit. This means there will be one timed event and two bunch races each day.  A full race schedule can be found on the website

 

Wembley Park Confirmed as Title Sponsor

For 2018 we have a new title sponsor on board in the form of Wembley Park. Wembley park is London's newest creative district with great venues such as the SSE Arena, London Designer Outlets and BoxPark coming late 2018 as well as art studio's and creative spaces.


"It's great to have such an exciting sponsor on board for the 2018 event, not only is Wembley Park a great place to visit and live, but they also have a big passion for cycling, which will be perfect for us to help the event grow in the coming years"  Dave Creasy 6


"Wembley Park is delighted to support the Dave Creasy 6 in 2018. The DC6 is a London event which has grown in popularity over the last few years and is now one of the very best track meets in the UK for youth and senior riders. Quintain, Wembley Park and Tipi have taken huge pride from their involvement in the DC6. Wembley Park has also been host to rounds of the Tour Series in 2017 and 2018 (on 29th May) and is committed to supporting cycling in London in whatever way it can." Quintain

The event takes place on September 8th & 9th at Lee Valley Velopark and Herne Hill Velodrome respectively. We look forward to seeing you there.

 

Entries Now Open For 2018

Entries for the eighth edition of The Dave Creasy Memorial 6 are open!

 

The race will again run over two days as in recent years from the 8th-9th September. On Saturday, we will visit Lee Valley Velopark for an evening of racing before returning to the newly refurbished Herne Hill Velodrome for an action packed Sunday. 

The Men’s Madison, Youth Madison and Women’s Omnium competitions will all be contested over the two days with youth and senior support races also on the Sunday programme.

 

This year there will be a change to the format of the women's racing so stay tuned for announcements on that.
