The teams and riders qualified through their placings at the Six Day Series events in London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen.

The Sprint event will include a Spain v Rest of the World team sprint alongside an individual competition. As is the Six Day way, the event will take place against the backdrop of a party atmosphere, featuring a live DJ in the track centre with DJ Martin 2 Smoove at the controls for the Six Day Final.

After spending much of 2016 on a world tour with Gwen Stefani and Eve, 2 Smoove is a Six Day veteran with two London Six Days and the Amsterdam event under his belt. There will be a track centre hospitality area, where Spanish legend Miguel Indurain will be guest of honour for the event.
