    Velodrome Footprint

    Simple question, hopefully I will get a simple answer:

    What is the overall footprint of a "typical" UCI regulation 250m velodrome? I.E. - what is the minimum building size (LxWxH) that would be needed in which to build one. I'm talking about just the track itself - no spectator seating or other "amenities". My searches online have come up empty.

    You can scale off this, but roughly speaking it looks like it would fit into a 320' x 170' building without spectator seating. You'd still need space around the track for roof support structure, services etc. Floor to u/s roof deck looks to be about 66'. Because of the clear span needed, a fairly deep truss roof structure is implied.

    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
