BMX track building in Paris, France. In 2014 Clark & Kent Contractors tendered to rebuild the Supercross (SX) track at the Saint-Quentin en Yvelines velodrome in Paris.
The project had three primary stakeholders: the Fédération Française de Cyclisme, Velopolis, who manages the facility, and 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 the French BMX team members, we completed the ambitious project in just four weeks.
After completing the BMX stadium work by Clark & Kent, all users have welcomed the track. It has proved to be an excellent training base for the elite level French riders to hone their regional, national, and international BMX competition skills.
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.
