Red Bull Mini Drome will challenge both body and mind as riders navigate themselves around a unique and technically challenging course reaching speeds of over 30mph. The event will be open to fixed gear riders age 21+.100 competitors will have the opportunity to qualify in a single timed race and the 32 racers with the quickest time across 10 laps will progress through the competition to the finals which will be a single pursuit race format.

 

HISTORY

The Oxford Dictionary has defined explanations for these two words:

 

  • "Mini" meaning: "very small version of its kind"
  • "Drome" meaning: "a place for running or racing"

 

This sums up the idea of the project for Red Bull Mini Drome. The aim was to shrink a cycling velodrome to the smallest possible size while maintaining race worthy dimensions to enable single timed races, and the treacherous single pursuit. The original Red Bull Mini Drome was 7m wide and 14m long and 3.5m high at each end and made of plywood. The concept was taken to the next level when it came over to the UK. Red Bull partnered with Velotrack in Germany, the team who built the velodrome for the Delhi Commonwealth Games, to engineer the track that is here today. The track is built to Olympic dimensions and will challenge both body and mind as riders navigate themselves around a unique and technically challenging course reaching speeds of over 30mph.
