About the Velodrome

Built in 1983 in preparation for the 1984 Olympic Games, the Colorado Springs Olympic & Paralympic Training Center Velodrome is the official training venue for U.S. Olympic and Paralympic track cycling and USA Roller Sports. The Velodrome features a 333.3-meter banked cement cycling track, which wraps around a 200-meter track for roller sports. The facility is open to the public for community racing, and hosts local and national events.  

In the fall of 2015, the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and USA Cycling jointly funded the addition of an air-supported dome that is in place for year-round training and race.

The Velodrome is located at 250 Union Blvd., approximately one mile south of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center at Colorado Springs Memorial Park.

Dear community riders and track cycling community,

Given the evolving landscape surrounding the potential spread and impact of the COVID-19 virus, we are in the process of evaluating all programming at the OPTCs. While there are currently no known cases at either training centers, this situation is fluid, and we will continue to monitor any impact on an ongoing basis.

At this point in time, we are focused on athlete safety and well-being as they train and prepare for the Tokyo and Beijing Games, and we are committed to moving intentionally and thoughtfully to minimize, as best we can, the risk of exposure for our athletes, coaches and staff.  

With that being said, starting Thursday, March 12, 2020 open training sessions at the Velodrome will be canceled, including community racing events and LTV events as well.

We anticipate this will stay in effect throughout the rest of the month, but we will be reviewing this situation on an ongoing basis, and will share future updates on our Velodrome website and Velodrome Facebook page.

Please know that we want to work with you to find possible solutions as a result of this new policy. Your memberships will be frozen for as long as this policy is in effect and we encourage you to reach out to the OPTC staff if you have any questions or concerns.

In addition, we will also be open Thursday, March 12 and Friday March 13 from 5-7 p.m. to answer questions and to allow for the retrieval of bikes and gear currently at the track.

Thank you for your support.
Team USA
