Game rules Sixdays Rotterdam

Various biker teams of two carry out a specific cycling programme on the indoor track during six days. During the Sixdays Rotterdam the riders can win points and rounds. Winning rounds is more important than winning points. Upon reaching 100 points, bikers get one round lead on the peloton, except on the last day of bicycle event. To win the match, riders must therefore always take the lead in the group.

More than just going round and around...

The Rotterdam Sixdays is also a social happening around the cycling race. Spectators get a surprising mix of sports and entertainment every day, making the event is also fun for children. The atmosphere of the Sixdays Rotterdam is always pleasant with a positive vibe. The riders make their rounds in the evening and the excellent facilities of the Ahoy multifunctional venue offer a drink and a snack as well.
