You Saw Them Here First

Okay, maybe you saw them on your home track first, but here are some of the up-and-coming recent juniors who will be racing in the World Cup races starting today in Sydney. In fact, there were so many in the start list on Cyclingnews that I didn’t get to them all.

For some there will be quite a bit of data if you follow the link. Others have just been mentioned or listed in the database. Good luck to all.

Good luck also to Dave McCook and Shelley Olds from Hellyer Park velodrome (and the Proman team). I also don’t want to forget Steve Pelaez, who is riding for the Philippines. It’s great to see our local velodrome represented at such a major event.

Netherlands, Armenia, the Congo and More

Just when you think you have most of the velodromes that can be found, life proves you wrong.

Thanks to a comment from “Stayer” I was able to add 5 new velodromes in the Netherlands. I may have made some naming corrections based on Stayer’s list as well. There are still more velodromes in the Netherlands and Belgium for which I have names but not locations, so help is welcome.

As often happens, I stumbled upon a new source while looking for those tracks. Wikimapia.org has a growing geographic database from which I was able to locate 11 more velodromes, including the first in Trinidad and Tobago, Armenia, and Democratic Republic of the Congo. A velodrome on Reunion Island was credited to France, though it’s in the Indian Ocean.

I also discovered a velodrome in China (CHN) labeled as Chilean (CHI) and corrected the error.

At the time of this article, the JuniorVelo database included 554 velodromes in 79 countries. The real time count is 611 velodromes in 83 countries.
