Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

Scotland / Europe

The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome was named after the track cyclist Sir Chris Hoy MBE (born 1976), the most successful Olympic Gold Medal winner in the United Kingdom, and Commonwealth Games champion. He was crowned World champion 11 times and was an Olympic champion six times. The Velodrome adjoins the £113 million Emirates Arena. The two buildings together formed the flagship venue of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. That summer some of the world’s fastest track cyclists competed across 12 events for individual medal success and national glory. Ralph Schuermann designed the Velodrome’s 250-metre track with a 4,000 viewing capacity – 2,000 permanent, and 2,000 temporary seats for major events. The Velodrome is open to the public who can join introductory sessions, take up cycling seriously and make it part of their fitness regime.
