The weekend's world track championships at the ADT Event Center velodrome in Carson, Los Angeles attracted a total of 15,086 fans over the four days of racing, organizers have announced. This was the third major track event at the facility, which opened June 10 last year, and it's no surprise that the world's set attendance records as it was the most important event yet held there. Nevertheless, the high numbers bode well for the ADT Event Center's future.
UCI vice-president Ray Godkin was pleased with the turnout and the whole event. "This was a fantastic event at a truly first-class facility," said Godkin. "I've never seen a more enthusiastic crowd at a world championships. They witnessed racing history and responded by cheering on every rider that competed."
