This looks insane! a figure of 8 mini drome… I can already see the carnage!
“Red Bull Mini Drome in 2015 is set to be extra special because a hardly seen Figure 8 track is going to be built this time around. The mythical concept, which is known to only have existed a few times — one being the 1995 Toronto Cycle Messenger World Championships — involves more speed, extra precision and a bit of danger as cyclists take turn after turn without rest.”
Looks like another fantastic weekend in the Red Bull Minidrome series 2012, unfortunately I didn’t get to compete at this one! hopefully next time!
Red Bull Mini Drome took the high road this weekend and headed to Scotland for its second outing of 2012 at Edinburgh’s College of Art. Scotland welcomed the return of the world’s smallest velodrome this weekend as 32 of the world’s top fixed gear riders competed to become the Red Bull Mini Drome Champion at Edinburgh’s College of Art. The event also introduced a female final, a first in Red Bull Mini Drome’s history!
The finals culminated with a tense round between Toms Alsberg from Latvia and local boy Martin Bletchley. Alsberg finished in first place and was crowned champion for the fourth time with Martin Betchley in second place and Ricky Crompton from Manchester in third
On 2nd October 2011, Red Bull will be bringing the world’s smallest velodrome to The Old Fruit Market in Glasgow to challenge fixed gear riders from across the country for the first time in Scotland.
Red Bull Mini Drome will engage both body and mind as riders navigate around a unique and technically challenging course reaching speeds of up to 80 km/ph.
The purpose built track has been engineered in Germany by Velotrack, the team who built the velodromes for the Atlanta Olympics and the Delhi Commonwealth Games. The track maintains race worthy dimensions in the smallest possible size to enable a single pursuit.
