1970 - Hat Trick for Post-Sercu

SkolJersey1

Skol Six Day Cycle Race Jersey - a Union Jack design used in three of the early races.
In 1970 it was Tony Gowland who wore the black no.9. In 1969 it was Trevor Bull’s jersey and in 1968 the wearer was Jim Moore; who rode instead of John Clarey.

Held from 18 to 23-Sep-1970 at the Empire Pool, Wembley
Race Format - Starting 19:00 Friday and running over 6 days; each day having 5 hours of racing

Introduction

September, and indoor track cycling once again takes over the Empire Pool for the SKOL 6.
By discarding the old-fashioned six day marathon, we have concentrated our event into six nights of racing, each session of five hours duration. Quite rightly you, the paying spectator, want to see the riders performing at maximum effort and the present formula does provide hard, fast, continuous racing. A first class sporting event suited to the exacting demands of the British sporting public.
Hugh Porter rides in the 1970 SKOL 6 in his rainbow jersey of world champion and how satisfying it is for spectators to see a home rider at the top of this continental sport. Tony Gowland once again dons the Union Jack colours and together with their German partners; both Sixday aces, it would not be optimistic to expect our talented two to be among the top pairs at the end of the race.
By contracting Altig and Renz to balance the class of Post-Sercu, Kemper-Bugdahl, we feel that the SKOL 6 has now developed into one of the world's leading cycle races. Only by bringing the best riders available can we expect our event to remain at such a very high standard.
With an eye to the future, in particular, Munich, we are providing racing, before the main event each evening, for young amateurs. Perhaps we may see another Tony Gowland or Hugh Porter in the making.
This year we have a beautiful new track, by master designer Herbert Schurmann. All over the globe his tracks provide the shape for world records and Olympic gold medals.
Indoor racing is now firmly established and we hope that each year it will attract more and more spectators. What other sport can offer such skill, excitement, physical endurance and above all - entertainment?
