New Page: Coaching Links

Filed under: Cycling — Administrator @ 3:42 pm

I am still mostly offline this week, but I took a few minutes to throw together the beginning of a new page. The “coaching and other sites” link in the right column is a place to include links to coaches and coaching programs. Occasionally coaches will mention their sites in a comment, but I have never collected the links in one place.

Feel free to send in the name and URL of your coaching business or a favorite coach. Please stick to coaches who work with junior track racers. I don’t have space for every cycling coach on earth.

I have also started a few other lists on the same page, grouped as “Photographers”, “Cycling Organizations”, and “Other”. As with the coaching list, I don’t want to try to replace Google, Yahoo!, and the other search engines by listing every site. Relevance to junior track racers is the key.

This lists are very small now, but they will grow.

A Little Break

Filed under: Cycling — Administrator @ 8:32 am

Things are already pretty slow at JuniorVelo this time of year, but they are going to get slower for a few weeks. I’m moving to a new house, and the associated work and disruputions will probably keep me from doing much with the site. Comments from unregistered or new users may not appear for days.

After that I’ll be back in action. Here is part of my to-do list:

  1. Stay on top of competitive times from around the world.
  2. Recruit more junior, parent, or coach authors to the site.
  3. Put up a page where coaches can list their services.
  4. Make it possible for authorized users to enter new riders and results without my help.
  5. Consider traveling to Aguascalientes to cover junior worlds in 2007.
  6. Keep finding more velodromes.

List of Mapped Velodromes

Filed under: Cycling — Administrator @ 8:40 pm

This article is just for the serious velodrome hunters out there. The rest of you can stop here.

By request, here is a text list of all the velodromes in the database. It is automatically updated whenever a velodrome is added. Please, if you know of a velodrome not listed here send me the name and exact latitude and longitude (a.k.a. GPS coordinates). To see the velodromes on a map, you can find several options on the velodrome locations page.

Note that the velodrome names below vary in quality. In some cases, the full official name of the velodrome is listed. In others, an out of date name may be shown. Finally, in many cases I only know the location, so the name shown is simply “Somecity Velodrome” even though that may not reflect the local language or official name. Corrections are welcome – just leave a comment.

The web site links also vary in quality. Some are the official web site for the track. When I didn’t find an official site, sometimes I listed some site with relevant information. In many more cases, I have no link to offer. Again, corrections and additions are welcome.

Finally, for the really committed velodrome hunters out there, here are two Google Earth placemark lists which may be useful. The first contains locations of things which look like velodromes, but where I was not sure enough to include them in the database. They can be included if Google Earth improves their satellite images or if there is some corroborating evidence that the location is really a velodrome (for example, a known address or ground-level images which correspond to what is seen in Google Earth). The second list contains cities which should have a velodrome, but where I could not clearly identify one. Usually these cities have been found on the BikeCult velodrome list, but there are other sources. It may be that the expected velodrome is not visible due to low resolution photography or clouds. It may have been torn down or covered in an anonymous-looking building. It may have never existed or perhaps I just didn’t look carefully enough. Note that these two lists are NOT automatically updated, though I will replace them if there are big changes. Yet again, corrections and improved information are welcome.

I admit it; this is just an excuse to point at some non-junior pictures on Flickr.

Best wishes to Daniel (a junior until last year). It sounds like he’s going to have some pain, but recover fully.

Credit for Velodrome Locations

Filed under: Cycling — Administrator @ 11:20 am

The velodrome locations file for Google Earth now includes credit to those who provided most of the velodrome locations. I have lost track of some, but there are credits for about 75% of the velodromes. Top finders include myself, Andrew Iler, and Barry Langley. For many of the others I have just a screen name and/or web site name.

If you find a velodrome I don’t have, please let me know. All I really need is the exact latitude and longitude, but if you have the correct name of the velodrome that would be nice too. So far there are 611 velodromes in 83 countries, so you’ll have to look hard to find one that’s missing.

[Added September 7th] Today I discovered that the Google Earth coverage of Italy has improved resolution in some areas. This allowed me to add six velodromes in Italy, moving it ahead of the USA, Spain, and France.
