It's one of the oldest velodromes in the world, but now it's been brought right up-to-date.
The cycle track at Preston Park in Brighton has undergone repairs and renovation costing £160,000.
And a champion of the sport performed the official re-opening of the historic track, where he himself trained.
Malcolm Shaw spoke to Kim Fortescue Talwar, Preston Park Youth Cycling Club, Pete Mitchell, GB Para-Cycling Team, and Cllr Alan Robins, Brighton & Hove City Council (Lab).
Amateur cyclists have been given the chance to pit their skills against professional riders in Sussex this weekend. A temporary velodrome was erected on Worthing seafront. It's part of a drive to get more people involved in cycle sport, as Malcolm Shaw now reports.
Southampton cyclist Dani King says she is still in shock after winning a gold medal in the velodrome. Dani beat the world record 3 times on her way to victory with team mates Laura Trott and Joanna Rowsell in the women's team pursuit.
