Enthusiasts of the Paris-Brest-Paris may like to note that the new velodrome at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines (on the outskirts of Paris, near Versailles) is now open and ready to host its first competition. The velodrome is close to the start/finish that the Paris-Brest-Paris has used for the past few occasions. Perhaps in the future the start will be from the Velodrome? Who knows…. but it would be handy for those who fancy a bit of track racing after a 1200km ride!!!
