Triple Beijing gold medal-winning cyclist Chris Hoy has helped unveil plans for the VeloPark for London’s 2012 Olympic Games. This is an animated fly-though of the VeloPark which will include a 6,000-seat velodrome to host the cycling events as well as a BMX circuit, and after the games a road cycle circuit and mountain bike course will be added, so the park can be used by everyone.

The VeloPark, to be based in the north of the Olympic Park, will include a 6,000 seat Velodrome to host the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Indoor Track Cycling events, as well as a BMX circuit for Olympic events. After the Games, a road cycle circuit and mountain bike course will be added to create a VeloPark combining the disciplines, with facilities for cyclists of all levels. The VeloPark will be linked into cycle routes across London, connecting the whole of the capital with the new world-class facilities.
