Copenhagen Seksdagesløb has run 57 times since 1934, but for the first time since 2004 will not run something like 6-dagesløb in Copenhagen this winter.

After having executed seven successful 6-dagesløb in Ballerup Super Arena 2013 it is with regret that I must announce that I for personal reasons can not arrange the copenhagen 6-dagesløb in 2020, writes organise running events too Michael Sandstød in a press release.

the Race should have been settled from the 30. January to 4. February 2020.

- It hurts to disappoint the volunteers, the sponsors, the suppliers and the loyal cycling fans who are such an important part of the race, but I hope for understanding for the difficult decision.

- Both the 6-dagesløbet and I come back strong, says Sandstød, who do not have additional comments.

Last year the race was won by belgian Moreno De Pauw and Kenny De Ketele in front of the Danish Michael Mørkøv and Oliver Wulff. In addition, nine of the ten latest texts had at least one dane in vinderparret.

6-dagesløbet was in the first many years, run in the Forum in central Copenhagen. In 1998, it was a single time in the Brøndby Hall, while in 2002 for the first time was the Ballerup Super Arena, which laid the boards for the race.

the Race was not run in the 1940's - probably because of the second world war, while there was also a break in the course between 1960 and 1976. After afskedsløbet in the Forum in 1999, there was also a few years without running, in Ballerup, denmark, was taken in use.

in Addition to the copenhagen 6-dagesløb has also been running a similar in Herning from 1974 to 1983. It was revived with Bjarne Riis' success and was taken again from 1995 to 1998, but has since been laid in the tomb. In the 1950s, was also run nine races in Aarhus.

But this winter, Denmark may not offer indoor cycling over six days.
