It was announced yesterday that London will be hosting it’s very own annual international Six-Day cycle race and cycling festival after receiving backing from Prime Minister Gordon Brown. According to CyclingWeekly.com:

Mr Brown also praised the London Borough of Newham, adjacent to the Olympic 2012 site – for hosting the festival. As well as seeing the pro stars of the winter six-day circuit in action on a portable timber track already in use at Continental Sixes, the festival will provide an opportunity for the public and local communities to learn to ride an indoor track.

I bet the team at the Manchester Velodrome can’t be too happy about this!
