Rio’s Velodrome, located in the Olympic Park in Barra da Tijuca, was inaugurated in 2007 for the Pan American Games, and was reformed by Tecnosolo and Engetécnica companies for the Rio 2016 Olympics, with funding from the Rio de Janeiro City Hall. Serving the stage for cycling competitions, the structure was built to receive about 5,800 spectators. Its track was made of Siberian pine, 250 meters long, produced in Germany by the company Sportbau Schuermann, contracted by Rio 2016, being considered the fastest track in the world, providing new records to the Olympic cyclists. Rio’s Velodrome is the new home of the Brazilian Cycling Team and is open for trainings of the public.
