World Class Invercargill Velodrome


World Class Invercargill Velodrome

20th August 2012: This week's junior world track cycling championships are about more than just putting on a world-class event in Invercargill.

Cycling Southland has invested significant resources, both in terms of personnel and the war chest it had built up in recent years with the help of the community funders, in putting on these championships.

You might wonder at the logic of using all the resources on one week-long event, but for Cycling Southland this is about putting the Stadium Southland velodrome on the cycling map.

Elite riders who have ridden the Ralph Schuermann-designed track have been universally positive about the way it handles.

Officials were eager to incorporate long straights to make it easier for Joe Bloggs to ride.

That could have meant difficult transitions into the corners but has proved not to be the case.

In fact, the Invercargill velodrome has been hailed as one of the world's fastest sea-level tracks and it would be great to see some world junior records go tumbling next week to help prove that.

With Hamilton in the process of building its own covered velodrome, the time is now for Cycling Southland.

Thanks mainly to the highly skilled volunteer base that supports the quality venue, the organisation already has a reputation for being a great host of national and Oceania championships.

Now that it faces competition from a rival track that will obviously be favoured by BikeNZ, it's time for Cycling Southland to prove itself at world level.

It's also a great opportunity for the province to show itself off.

These championships have been sold with the idea that some of these junior riders would bring their families and friends with them, turning a cycling event into a great excuse for an extended holiday.

Some of the riders who will be on show next week will be stars of the future.

At least a handful will probably be making headlines in Rio in four years' time.

These championships will give the likes of Alexandra's Sophie Williamson - a rider who has some scary potential - to take on the world at her home velodrome. That's exciting.

Tickets for all the sessions are starting to become scarce, but if you want to see some top-level sport in your own backyard, I would encourage anyone to go and take a look.
