Prague Has 2 Velodromes - 1 Indoor 1 Outdoor. Not Sure If They Are The Only 2 Though. 1 Is In South West Prague , Cant Remember The Name Of The Area, Perhaps Near Prague 4, Its A Small Indoor Track But Still Ok. The Other Is A Concrete Outdoor Track, North East Prague. I Have Ridden On Both.

I went to Praha last summer, it's a wonderful city (too many strip clubs though). I had no idea there were 2 tracks there. Hard to find one track in England, and GB is great at track racing. Go figure.

Not wishing to hijack the thread but there are 15+ veldromes in the UK. See:

Manchester is awesome and they're building a new indoor one in East London:

And now we return you to your regularly scheduled program... The Velodromes of Prague.
