Photos from the Red Bull Minidrome in London’s East End.
The purpose built track has been engineered in Germany by Velotrack, the team that built the velodromes for the Atlanta Olympics and the Delhi Commonwealth Games. The Red Bull Mini Drome track will maintain race-worthy dimensions in the smallest possible size to enable a single pursuit. Red Bull Mini Drome will challenge both body and mind as riders will need to navigate themselves around a unique, and technically challenging, course reaching speeds of up to 80 km/h.
In other words: start, pedal as hard and fast as you can, before the whistle blows to stop. Don’t look down, up, or back. Just ahead so you don’t fly off that first bank.
