The second edition of the PAARL 6, proudly associated with the Drakenstein Municipality and Cape Winelands Cycling will return to the Faure Stadium in Paarl on 18-23 December 2018.

The six-day track race format started in Britain and spread to many regions of the world. It made its first appearance in South Africa in December 2017 in Paarl when event organizer, Kevin Green from KG Bike Xpres launched the first Paarl 6 Track Cycling /Cultural Event.

Teams of 2 riders each compete in 6 races each day, for 6 Days, for 1 Final Podium at the end of the 6-Days. The Team whom completes the most laps over 6 Days claims Victory. If 2 or more Teams finish on the same number of laps after 6 Days, the Points accumulated over the 36 Races decides the Final Podium!

The race in 2017 featured 7 teams with the Irish Team of Felix English and Fintan Ryan claiming overall victory. Two international teams from England and Denmark have already entered the 2018 event, as well as South African teams including Alexander Parsons and Rocco King, Bernard Esterhuizen and Brandon Christians, Oupa Maluleke and Benedict Moqumo; Graeme Ockhuis and George Perrins; Jean Smith and Niel Rossouw – to name just a few.
