Worlds largest velodrome?

Ok, so this isn’t exactly a velodrome, but it sure as hell would be fun to ride around it. I bet you are wondering what on earth it is. It is a hydroelectric power plant in Slovenia. It is usually full with water generating energy, but when it is empty it enables some Slovenian fixed wheel cyclists to go mental inside it. The standard velodrome has a track length of 250 meters, this has a length of around 2000 meters. When you are at the bottom of the bowl, it will mean that you will have be 50 meters to get to the lip of the bowl. Some mathematician can calculate the angle of banking, but I can tell you that it’s bloody steep! Anyway, here are some more photos courtesy of keki & subtilen
