Major Taylor Velodrome

Major Taylor Velodromeアメリカのミネソタで7月から9月まで毎月開催される Major Taylor Velodrome Inline Race Series というローカルな300mタイムトライアルレースがあります。そのレースのビデオがYuoTube にアップされていたのですが、1周333mリンクの大きさもさることながら・・・充実した施設にも驚きです。またラジコンカーレースも行われているようですが、ベースは自転車競技場ということです。

The Major Taylor Velodrome Inline Race Series will take place on the 10-meter wide concrete apron in the in-field of the velodrome. Competitors will be placed in categories by their results in an initial 300 meter time trial. Skaters will be placed in A, B , C , D and E categories based on ability and time in the time trial, not pertaining to gender or age.

The pack style events will be run in the same format as a Long track pack style competition. The start locations and laps will be the same, the distances will be different. Helmets are Required! Kneepads and gloves recommended.

Major Taylor Velodrome

Come join the excitement as this world-class cycling venue hosts In-line competition in long-track ice format!

Built in 1982, the Major Taylor Velodrome is one of only 18 Velodromes in the United States.
Description
This world-class bicycle racing track is named after one of the sport's 19th-century greats. The 333 1/3 meter track is smooth concrete with 28 degree banking in the turns. The 33 foot concrete apron also offers a great place for inline skating. Although the track is used by many elite bicycle racers, it is suitable for ages 10+. Clinics, organized group instructions and individual open riding times are available.

The velodrome, one of only 18 in the country, hosts many national and international biking competitions as well as remote control car races and concerts. Next to the track is the Lake Sullivan BMX Track, an American Bicycle Association certified bicycle motocross track. Open riding, weather permitting.
