Brendan Quirk, President of USA Cycling, assured that everything is ready to welcome the more than 25 nations that will participate in the Pan American Track Cycling Championships, which will take place for the first time in the United States, from April 3 to 7.

In the words contained in the event’s technical guide, Quirk explained that the Organizing Committee is delighted to support each of the delegations, which will compete at the VELO Sports Center at Dignity Health Sports Park, a velodrome that has hosted a number of international events, including World Championships and World Cups.

“Never in the history of the United States has our country hosted a Pan American Championships. It is fitting that an event of this magnitude be held in the same velodrome that will be used for the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles,” argued the northern cycling leader

“We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the COPACI Steering Committee for entrusting us with this event, and to each and every nation for making the trip to the United States. Thank you again for being part of such a special week where so many lifelong memories will be created,” concluded the head of USA Cycling.

The schedule for the five days of competitions has already been disclosed, as well as the college of commissaires in charge of dispensing justice, which will be headed by the prestigious Canadian commissaire Michael Pinkoski.

This Pan American Track Championships will be the last opportunity for the participating countries to obtain valuable Olympic points for their respective rankings before the Paris 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, France.

The VELO Sports Center is a specially designed 100,000-square-foot, $15 million, 250-meter-long, 250-meter-long, wooden, indoor velodrome.

The VELO Sports Center is also part of Dignity Health Sports Park’s partnership with the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee as the official U.S. Olympic training site and is the home track for USA Cycling’s national track cycling program.

The VELO Sports Center hosts international training and competitions for the world’s elite cyclists, as well as classes open to the public at any level.

As the largest indoor velodrome in the United States, VELO Sports Center is committed to growing the sport of cycling. Youth, beginner, intermediate and advanced training programs are available for those curious about cycling or for any athlete aspiring to compete in the Olympics or World Championships.
