Kenosha Velodrome Racing is happy to announce the 95th year of racing at the historic Washington Park Velodrome. Bring your track bikes, families, and friends out on Tuesday nights all summer long at the “BOWL”. Be part of another history making year in Southeast Wisconsin!
Washington Park Velodrome opened in 1927 and is the oldest operating velodrome in the country. Kenosha’s 333 meter track is the only bicycle track in the state. The banked corners have produced many National, Collegiate, Olympic and World Champions.
This is our premier night of racing. Racers from all around Southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois compete May through September in various sprint and endurance track events. Track bikes are required on Tuesday Nights. These specialized bikes are fixed gear bikes with no brakes; if the back wheel is turning so are the pedals. Licensed riders from age 9 and up are grouped in ability level. Spectators can cheer on their favorite racer, free, from “the hill” as these athletes race at 35+ mph on the steep, 28-degree corner banked track.
