Zesdaagse Gent: Iljo Keisse / by Monica Monté

Iljo Keisse cycling in t' Kuipke in Gent, Belgium during Zesdaagse Gent 2015. Track cycling always intrigued me. It's fast, exciting (with the derny bikes) and it has a lot of entertainment. And the competitors are true sportsmen. They race fast and explosive but they stay true gentlemen Respect and fair play are always present. Track cycling is a such beautiful sport.

Going to Zesdaagse Gent has become a tradition thanks to my father. Every year we have seats in the first bend after the finish line. Although I was cheering for Kenny De Ketele, I also managed to photograph the overall winner Iljo Keisse a few times.
