COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (March 25, 2024) – The Colorado Springs Olympic & Paralympic Training Center Velodrome will officially reopen on April 1, 2024.

Starting on April 1, the velodrome will be introducing training sessions four days a week, classes for adults and youth, and an 18-race series on select Friday Nights. To register or learn more, visit http://www.coloradospringsvelodrome.org/.

The Colorado Springs Velodrome provides a unique opportunity to the local community being that it also functions as the Olympic Training Center. With several high-level athletes living in Colorado Springs, the community has the opportunity to rub elbows in the Friday night races with Olympic Medalists and World Champions.

USA Cycling recently appointed Robert Mayfield as the Community Coordinator for the Colorado Springs Velodrome. Mayfield brings extensive experience as a top-tier track racer and cycling coach, having previously worked with both the USA Cycling and Paracycling National Teams. Mayfield is eager to start working to revive track racing and training in Colorado Springs for the local community.

“As one of three indoor velodromes in the country, a unique opportunity exists to bring consistent programming to the local ridership. I’m thrilled to share my experience with the community that I’ve been a part of since 2018 and do my absolute best to make a difference and grow the sport,” said Mayfield.
