Velodrome in Rock Hill
From Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine – Construction begins this month on the U.S. Cycling Center in Rock Hill, S.C. A world-class facility for five different cycling disciplines on a 1,000-acre site situated on the edge of the Catawba River. There will b 7 miles of singletrack, a cyclocross track, a 1.5-mile paved criterium course, a BMX Supercross track, and a 250-meter concrete velodrome. Velodromes are cycling tracks with 42-degree banked walls. They’re popular in Europe, but almost non-existent in the Southeast.
CABA Board of Advisor member, and founder of 24 Hours of Booty, Spencer Lueders, has played a key role an making this project a reality. Much thanks to Spencer and his peers ! And thanks to Andrew Israel for bringing this to our attention. Rock Hill council members are convinced that a comprehensive cycling center will attract two-wheelers and their wallets.
