BMX track building in Paris France. In 2014 Clark & Kent Contractors tendered for the project of rebuilding the Supercross (SX) track at the Saint-Quentin en Yvelines velodrome in Paris.
The project had three primary stakeholders which included the Fédération Française de Cyclisme, Velopolis, who manages the facility, and also the town of Saint Quentin en Yvelines.
After submitting designs, RAMS and supporting literature Clark & Kent were selected for the project and, because the facility was undercover, chose January 2015 to begin working on the project.
The scope of work on the track was substantial. It included a full BMX Supercross (SX) track redesign and rebuild, new tarmacadam surfacing to the corners, limestone dust to the straights and retaining concrete on the sides and to the rear of some of the taller features.
With input from the French Cycling Federation and members of the French BMX team, we completed the ambitious project in just four weeks.
Following completion of the BMX stadium work by Clark & Kent, the track has been welcomed by all users and has proved to be an excellent training base for the elite level French riders to hone their skills for regional, national and international BMX competition.
Sports activities at the Paris velodrome include track cycling, combat sports, fitness and badminton as well as BMX racing.
The BMX stadium is open to all categories of practitioners from five years old to seasoned professionals.
BMX enthusiasts of all levels, both amateur and professional, have the opportunity to engage in the sport at what local officials describe as an 'excellent venue'.
The velodrome stadium not only holds sporting activities but also hosts corporate and cultural events as well as major business conventions.
The Saint-Quentin en Yvelines velodrome was built between 2011 and 2014 and hosted the 2015 UCI Track Cycling World Championships and 2016 UEC European Track Championships.
