American Six Day Races - for Women

Many reports state that Six Day races for women started in England in 1895 but just a little research can refute that idea..

This is my brief list of some early “Sixes” - plus a “Five” - that involved North American ladies - found in 19th century press reports. There are also some mixed races known - see main page
