Judges’ comments

The vision and dedication of a group of Waikato cycling enthusiasts has resulted in this world-class sports facility.

The Avantidrome is particularly notable for the way it provides for the sporting and exercise needs of the whole community, from children learning to ride, through to senior citizens walking laps of the gallery and of course our high performance athletes on the world stage.

When it came to Value Engineering there was one simple test however – “will it make the bikes go faster?” We believe that 5 medals in the 2014 World Champs goes some way to answering that.
