Fat Nick points to a new 6-day star

Fat Nick runs a great 6 Day racing site on the WWW. He went to the recently completed Gent Six and reports that he got a lot of photos.

He also said that (quote) "Australia also has a new star: Matthew Gilmore won his first six at Ghent (riding with de Wilde) .... and he was doing at least 50% of the work. This young man is fast, strong and classy. He is definitely a star of the future."

Go Matthew.
