Kuipke Gent 2001 – Collectible Pin


Kuipke or Citadel Park Velodrome is an indoor velodrome in Ghent, Belgium.

The first velodrome in Citadel Park in Ghent was built in 1927 to accommodate the Six Days on a fixed location in the city center. The building previously served as a greenhouse and was renamed, Sportpaleis Gent. Because of its short track and unusually steep gradient, it was nicknamed “Kuipke” (English: Little Tub). On 12 November 1962, the building was destroyed by fire, after which a second velodrome was opened in the same location in 1965. The new cycling track kept its original size of 167 m and steep bankings and was officially renamed “Kuipke”.
