Hangzhou, China, January 20, 2021: The organising committee of the 19th Asian Games in Hangzhou, China in 2022 has released images of the new track cycling venue located in Chun’an County.

The velodrome, which has a floor area of 22,000 sq metres and a seating capacity of 3,040, is nearing completion and adds a futuristic landscape to an area famous for the Qiandao Lake tourist resort, also known as the Thousand Islets Lake.

The velodrome will be completed on schedule by the end of March 2021 and will be the focal point of the Asian Games cycling programme.

Track cycling will be one of six disciplines to be held at the Chun’an County venue cluster. The other three cycling disciplines are mountain bike (MTB), road race and BMX, while open water swimming and triathlon will also take place there.

Chun’an County is 150 km west of Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, eastern China and will have its own Asian Games Village – one of the four Satellite Villages in the organising committee’s “1+4” accommodation concept referring to the main AGV in Hangzhou supplemented by four smaller villages to serve the co-hosting cities.

The OCA’s 19th Asian Games will run from September 10-25, 2022, with 40 sports, 61 disciplines and 482 events.
