A fantastic venue for our hobby, surrounded by continuous cycle action. This iconic venue has tension and excitement in the very fabric of the building.

I’ve been to live cycling events before and this was for a World Cup event. It was fantastic, fast moving, superbly organised and run, I couldn’t fault any element of it. They even organised that you could park for free at the Etihad Stadium which...More
