Red Bull Mini Drome

Tweet

The Red Bull Mini Drome is engineered by Velotrack, the team who built the velodromes for the Atlanta Olympics and the Delhi Commonwealth Games. The track measures 7 m wide by 14 m long with a track of 1.8 m wide.

Winner Chris Akrigg of Mongoose bikes (check some of his videos here) said this about the event, “It was so much harder to ride than it actually looked and I didn’t think I was going to win. The key was to really hit it hard from the start and everything else just happened. What an awesome event!”

    Everything old is new again. This is reminiscent of the old wooden tracks of the early 19th century.
