Kuipke Gent 2001 – Collectible Pin

$12.95

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”.
