We are sorry for all the changes and wish everyone the best of

luck in the coming Championship weekends!!

               

Colorado now has two Olympic caliber velodromes operating in the state!  A velodrome is banked oval where cyclists ride and compete on fixed-gear bicycles.  Though the banking can look intimidating at first, velodromes are really a great place to learn about the sport.  Many of the usual “challenges” cyclists face…automobiles, potholes, dogs, etc. won’t be found at the track. If you have never experienced track cycling you have to visit one or BOTH of these great facilities this summer! 

 


Below you will find information on both Colorado tracks; what races and programs they are offering and how to contact the appropriate people at each facility.  Also please note that both tracks run all racing under USA Cycling so you must be a USAC licensed racer to compete.

 


 

BOULDER VALLEY VELODROME

 The Boulder Valley Velodrome (BVV) in Erie is America’s newest Olympic caliber velodrome. The 250-meter track, designed by Peter Junek, has a unique plywood surface and a wood infrastructure. The apron (safety zone) and most of the infield are concrete. 

For this first season, Training Time will be mostly limited to BVV founding members and the founding clubs and their members.  Riders wishing to use the Boulder Valley Velodrome to train MUST first complete the BVV “Certification Course”.

The track’s certification program is an 8-session program designed to prepare riders for the unique challenge of training and racing the high-banked 250m track. The track certification course is required for ALL riders that wish to utilize the BVV for training.  It is a unique opportunity for riders of all levels and experience.

Racing at BVV is scheduled to begin the 3rd week of July.  The BVV racing program will have two evenings of racing per week and run through September. Thursday and Friday Races will count towards the Colorado Track Cup Awards.
