Fourteen truckloads of wood arrived this week to construct the 200-metre track to be used as part of the Milan bicycle trade show, EICMA, 8 to 11 November. Three crews of workers (70 in total) working 24 hours a day are expected to construct the velodrome that will host exhibition races – Bikes4Show – of some of cycling's biggest names: Paolo Bettini, Filippo Pozzato, Alessandro Ballan and Danilo Napolitano.

The track arrived directly from Germany and is being assembled in Milan's trade exhibition centre, Fiera Milano.
