N5593843_PDF_1_-1DM30Great Six Day Race at Glasgow

The great six day race, of 8 hours per day, organised in Glasgow, at Burnbank Drill Hall, by Messrs Aginton and Wilson, met-up nine starters from thirteen entries; D. Lumsden, of Galashiels; W. Parkes, of Newcastle; J. Jackson, of Leeds; J. O. Flannagan, de Tipperary; W. Lamb, of Newcastel; Hal Berte, of London; W. Stage, of Aberdeen; J. Mitchell and A. Chamberlain, all on bicycles except Flannagan, on the “Crypto” [this was a type of geared ordinary].

The track, well made, but very small, measured only 107 metres, whether 15 laps to the mile.

The first day, and almost at the start, there were a few crashes, happily without much severity, but which discouraged the running of J. Mitchell and A. Chamberlain.

Lumsden, who had fallen also, soon remounted, and did not dismount his machine during the eight hours of the first day; also for Parkes. They finished first and second: Lumsden with 203 km 800 and Parkes with 203 km 480 metres; only three laps of the track behind. Lamb, Jackson and Flannagan, followed them at a several kilometres gap.
