A special edition is the 6 Giorni delle Rose, the 25th international cycling race on the track, which on 4 August will celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the 6 Days itself, but also the Olympic gold won in Los Angeles 1932 by the cyclist Attilio Pavesi (to which the Velodrome is dedicated) and the one conquered on August 4, 2021 by the Azzurro quartet.
The event, which for a quarter of a century has attracted the best track cyclists (men and women) on the world scene to our Val d’Arda, this year will take place from 1 to 6 August.
The competition formula is the same as in 2021: men and women will compete in the same tests, all of Uci class 1 (therefore assigning the maximum score for the rankings that qualify for world championships and olympics). The specialties will be those of the points race, the Omnium (discipline that will open the event on August 1st), the Scratch, the Elimination and the Madison (American), for which the final classification will also be valid for the test of the Giro launched. Madison and Giro launched which therefore go to give life to a single ranking, with the tests that will be repeated for three evenings by women and as many by men. The final of the women's pairs competition is scheduled for 4 August, the men's one on 6 August.
One of the novelties of the 25th edition will be the great party scheduled for Thursday 4 August, the date of three special occasions: on 4 August 1932 Attilio Pavesi (cyclist from Piacenza to whom the Velodrome is named) won the Los Angeles Olympics in the timed trial of cycling. The same date on which last year the blue quartet made up of Ganna, Lamon, Consonni and Milan (all athletes competing at least once in Fiorenzuola) won gold at the Tokyo Games.
These are the dates to remember in the great evening of honor that will be celebrated on August 4th, entitled “Fourth of August, Roses and Gold”.
