Six day bicycle racing was the biggest thing in the sporting world during the 1920s and early 1930s. Then, the race track was the centre of entertainment, and of course betting was what held it all together. In this book, Peter Nye, in collaboration with photographer Jeff Groman and documentary film producer Mark Tyson, tells the story of this unique sports discipline, tracing its roots back to the 1890s to its eventual decline at the beginning of the Second World War, and the more recent attempts to revitalise it.
