The Red Bull Mini Drome hosted it's first Brazilian stop in Memorial da America Latina with 40 athletes of São Paulo's fixed gear biking scene in attendance. Local Suryan Cury triumphed over all others to take home the win.
The Red Bull Mini Drome is the world's smallest velodrome, and we bring it with us to different urban scenes all over the world to host open competitions. With track speeds exceeding 30 mph it takes skill, balance, and braves to conquer this shrunken down version of the traditional velodrome. A true test of one's trust and connection in themselves and their bike, the Mini Drome always hosts a fair share of falls and surprise victors as the unfamiliar course hurls riders off it's sides while allowing the committed to hug the interior red line - the key to a fast lap time.
In the initial round of competition, all riders are given 10 laps to set their fastest time. Of these riders, only the top 16 progress to the knockout rounds in which 2 riders are put on the track together in a cat-and-mouse style race, knocking out successive riders until only the winner remains.
