Giordana Velodrome – Rock Hill, SC

Attention to detail is the name of the game at BIG Picture Cycling. And no single event highlights that greater than our track clinics. For 2023 we are changing up our normal clinic schedule and focusing on the two things we get asked for the most: Standing Starts & Sprint Sparring. Over these two highly focused days, our top BPC coaches and their knowledge to a velodrome near you. While mostly sprint focused, the skills covered and techniques taught have broad application to not only all of the track racing disciplines, but to all aspects of competitive cycling.

But the BPC coaching staff believes that visual examples help our athletes to learn the fastest. That’s why during our track clinics we video tape and review nearly everything we do with all of our athletes. We have also found that doing group video review allows for the greatest depth of learning as you get to see, ask questions and receive instruction on not only your own efforts, but the efforts of everyone at the camp. We also offer the option to have your videos from the weekend edited together and sent to you to keep for an additional fee (see “Add Ons” tab)

Giordana Velodrome

Rock Hill, SC 29730


The Giordana Velodrome is a 250m outdoor concrete velodrome with 42.5 degree banking in the corners. While regularly hosting national championship events, the velodrome also serves as a mild weathered training location for the non-summer months. Daily average temps in Early March range from the mid to upper 60’s for the highs with average lows keeping above 40. This provides great training conditions to get out and turn some laps while absorbing plenty of vitamin D. Add to that the length of the velodrome being the international standard of 250m, and you’ve got a perfect spring training camp location for breaking the ice of riding a 250m track!
