Today is the final day of the Rotterdam Six-Day, with several pairs of riders vying to clinch victory in the annual event – and thanks to SixDayRacing.com you can watch a live stream of this evening’s racing right here on road.cc, with the first race, the Elite Madison, starting at 6pm UK time.
The Belgian pairing of Kenny De Ketele and Jasper De Buyst go into the last day on 308 points and with a one-lap advantage over their rivals, led by Niki Terpstra and Iljo Keisse on 295 points and Michael Mørkøv and Alex Rasmussen with 292 points.
“Our one-lap advantage doesn’t really count because all our rivals will take one as well tomorrow," De Buyst said at the conclusion of yesterday's penultimate session. “It will come down to a points’ battle. Or one couple needs to be so strong that they can take another lap. I think Niki Terpstra and Iljo Keisse are our biggest opponents, but we will also have to watch the others.”
Streaming will start below at 5.30pm, and to keep you entertained in the meantime, underneath you’ll find highlights of each of the previous five days’ racing with commentary from David Harmon and two time world individual pursuit champion, Tony Doyle.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
