Albuquerque Veloport
BMX Pavilion
City of Albuquerque
Completed: March 2007
Cost: $4.3 million

Phase I of the Albuquerque Veloport, the BMX Pavilion, was completed in early 2007.  In addition to serving as the home of Duke City BMX, it provides a state-of-the-art venue for state, regional and national televised competition.  Covering nearly two acres, 230 feet clear-span pre-engineered building contains a depressed dirt track flanked by concourses and grandstand seating. The facility is only the second covered track in the country and is the largest.  The design features a dramatic entry from the street by way of a radial stair, and a ramp that provides wheelchair access to the upper level plaza.  G. Donald Dudley was associate architect.
