The Olympic Timed Event Of Madrid 2012 Will Start And Finish In The Olympic Stadium
After the visit to the circuit, which was included in the Madrid 2012 bid book, the two executives of the UCI praised Madrid 2012’s initiative, which has never been achieved in Olympic Games history, during the meeting with two executives of Madrid 2012 bid, Miguel de la Villa and Alessandro Sansa.
The start and the finish line of the Olympic timed event would be attended by 70.000 people, the conceived Olympic Stadium capacity during the Games. The male and female races would take place the same day, August 12th in order to not disturb the Athletics program, which is predicted during the second week. Besides, it will be a diagonal stretch so that the cyclist would just skim the athletics track.
Furthermore, Quéginer and Chevalier articulated their satisfaction in relation to other aspects of the Madrid 2012 project, such as the proximity of facilities in which the cyclist disciplines will be competed: The Velodrome, the new BMX track, and the Olympic Stadium, all of them positioned in the Olympic Ring.
They confirmed on site the possibilities of the Olympic Ring, what is considered Madrid 2012 jewel in the crown. 700 metres separates the Olympic Village and the Stadium, implying an effortless walk for the sportsmen from accommodation to venue.
Mr. Quéginer and Mr. Chevallier have an immense experience in this sport. Mr. Chevallier was professional cyclist who won a “stage” in the Tour de France between Bourdeux and Pau in 1983. The French cyclist was in the Renault-Elf-Gitane team, lead by Laurent Fignon.
