When so many years ago Good Friday Track Meeting promoter Graham Bristow organised a cyclo cross race at Herne Hill Velodrome in London approximately 25 people turned up for what was quite good fun.

Now the second oldest Velodrome in the World and the home of the 1948 Olympic Games track cycling will see over 400 riders racing in a day of action and good numbers of people watching, supporting and heckling.

During my hunt, which is by no means exhaustive (you have to stop at some point) and I also found a number of now abandoned velodromes which would be perfect for a cyclo cross race.
