1. What is a velodrome?

In short, a velodrome is a track cycling arena. Typically, velodromes contain an oval track that consists of 2 180 degree bends that are connected by 2 longer straights. The banking edges can vary in degrees. At Island 200, our banking is 45 degrees. The banking allows riders to keep their bikes perpendicular to the track as they circle around the oval at a high speed.

At this point, tickets are not available online. However, we are working on this technology, and tickets will be available online in the near future.

4. How much are tickets to a race?

Ticket prices vary depending on the race. Ticket pricing will become available closer to the grand opening.
