Joe Ciavola Velodrome
The Joe Ciavola Velodrome (also known as the State Cycling Centre) is a cycling facility located in the Melbourne suburb of Thornbury. Built as a training venue for the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games, the 250m indoor velodrome forms part of the Darebin International Sports Centre (DISC) which also includes the State Lawn Bowls Centre and State Football Centre. It features grandstand seating for 500 spectators, while additional seating can boost the capacity to 1,000.
The velodrome was built on the former site of the Northcote Velodrome. The venue is Victoria's first permanent indoor cycling track (while John Cain Arena is Victoria's premier track, it isn't a full-time cycling venue). Victoria's premier annual cycling events are shared between the two venues. The 500-seat centre served as a training facility for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
