Red Bull – NYC Mini Drome
The world’s smallest Velodrome is coming to NYC. Red Bull has teamed up with Velotrack to bring another mini velo event to Brunswick Church in Brooklyn on March 23rd. This track is custom built for speed and engineered with race worthy dimensions on the smallest possible scale. Some riders mashing up to 50 mph on this single pursuit style drome. One hundred Brake-less fixed gear riders will enter, but after 10 laps only thirty two fastest will move on to the head-to-head bracketed finals. Whomever is fastest in the single pursuit races will be the winner of this installment of the mini velo.
Red Bull has previously hosted the mini velo in countries like Tokyo, London, Vancouver, and Paris. More recently they’re starting to have them in the United states, this one in NYC, and and upcoming one in North Carolina. Now that they are becoming more frequent in the U.S. we think it’s time the Denver fixie scene gets a chance to host one of these. With groups out here like the Street Kings Bicycle Congregation, The Denver Cruisers, and the Denver Chain Chase, we are more than ready to hold one and show the world how a mini velo goes down in the mountains.
