The Adelaide Super-Drome is a South Australian Government owned facility and the current headquarters for the Australian Cycling Team.
Designed by Architect Carlo Gnezda and opened in 1993, the indoor velodrome is a 250m international standard timber track made from specially specified Nordic Pine with 43° banking in the turns, and was constructed under the supervision of British velodrome specialist Ron Webb. Due to its fully accredited international-standard training and competition facilities it is a popular destination for international track cycling teams looking for a unique environment for a training camp prior to competitions in Adelaide and other States in Australia.
The Super-drome is to be enhanced further, with an $11.2 million overhaul announced by the South Australian Government in January 2018. The redevelopment will make the Super-drome “one of the best velodromes in the world” and will see the Super-drome become the only velodrome in the world with a wind tunnel enabling Australian Olympic athletes and professional teams from around the world to test bikes, helmets and bike positions.
The upgrade will also include a $2 million national BMX training facility to be built next to the Super-drome.
Work is due to start on the facility immediately.
