1967 Nationals
  Awards presentation at 1967 nationals.  

"Since the Alpenrose bicycle racing program first got rolling in 1962, it's gained such momentum that it has us literally going around in circles!" – Alpenrose Dairy Gazette

After 40 years, the Circuit d'Alpenrose may no longer be dirt but the riders are still going in circles. The links below lead to information about the track in its earliest days. The images also show the transformation and renovation of the velodrome.

You can also visit www.alpenrose.com for information about the Alpenrose Dairy and the Cadonau's who allow us to use this little velodrome.

Thanks to sponsors of the 1997 renovation.
