Red Bull Mini-Drome is a unique Fixed Gear Event based on open registration : anyone with a bicycle that fits the requirements can enter the event and have the opportunity to participate in an insane and thrilling bike race that takes place on the World’s smallest Velodrome.

Cyclists will take their street skills to the track in a test of mental stamina, technical precision and raw strength. From it’s roots across the pond, in England, Red Bull Mini Drome will take it’s debut laps in Canada with stops in Montreal QC, Toronto ON, and Vancouver BC.

Red Bull Mini Drome brings skill, speed, balance, and bravado together on a steep and shrunken version, far from the traditional velodrome, to give competitors the most challenging and treacherous ride of their lives.

All registrants will get a time trial at which point the top riders will be placed in a bracket to go head to head with each other until there is only one cyclist left to be crowned victorious.
