Race. Connect. Contribute.

The Corporate Challenge at the NSC Velodrome offers your employees a unique team-building experience while at the same time introducing them to the sport of velodrome racing. On top of that, it's just plain fun!

The Corporate Challenge pits teams against one another in the Italian Pursuit. During each race, two teams line up on opposite sides of the velodrome and "pursue" each other over six laps. The lead rider of each team drops off after each lap, leaving only the final, or anchor rider, to finish the race against the clock.
