Started construction in 2015 with a total value of RM80 million, the Malaysian National Velodrome features a 250-meter track constructed from Siberian spruce. The Velodrome can hold 2,000 spectators and has been recognized first-class by the Switzerland-based Union Cycliste Internationale.
In addition to the racetrack, Velodrome also has a BMX track measuring 50m x 120m, which conforms to Union Cycliste Internationale standards and specifications.
This velodrome is equipped with all the necessary facilities for any cyclist to prepare for local and international championships. It was also used as one of the official competition venues for the 29th Sea Games 2017 in Kuala Lumpur.
The authorities and racing athletes all hope that the appearance of this track will promote sportsmanship among the people, thereby producing more talents in this sport.
