Drawing from the comic book "Hjertekval og Cykelfeber" (heart-anguish and bike-fever) by Niels Roland & Per Vadmand.
The book, which was no. 9 in a series, was released in 1997.

From left, the square shaped speech bubble says:
"This may sound like a chronicle of the 1950s, but the fact is that this story takes its beginning in 1997,
some time after Gunnar has returned from Saint Petersburg in Russia...."

The star-shaped speech bubble in the middle says: "We're in the mood and we're high."
This is the first line of a well-known Danish 6D song: "Seksdagesvalsen" - The SixDays Waltz.

The third speech bubble to the right says: "Oh yeah, we're really in the mood tonight here at the Forum,
and much to our delight, team number 7 (the Danish favourites) has just broken out and left the peloton behind."

Six-days racing is big fun for all ages, you don't have to know a lot, just come on in, enjoy the race, enjoy yourself!

6D also provides the opportunity to follow top riders through an entire race - this would be impossible in e.g. road racing.

For me personally, it all started in 1958, where I attended my first 6D at the Forum Copenhagen - the track that made it crack!

Erik Hagens: "Københavns Vinterbane" (the Copenhagen winter track), painted 1977-80.
Forum was the venue of the annual bicycle track-racing in January,
though it seems like the artist has payed more attention to whatever goes on behind the track,
among spectators, at the wheels of fortune, roulettes and slot machines.
