Dunc Gray Velodrome, or DGV for short, is the only indoor velodrome in New South Wales.
It was opened on 28 November 1999 as the track cycling venue for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. As a result, it became the site of unforgettable sporting moments such as Brett Aitken and Scott McGrory's famous gold medal for Australia in the Madison. DGV has also hosted UCI World Cup and Cycling Australia National Championship events.
The timber track is 250 metres long with a maximum banking of 42°.
The venue is named after Edgar "Dunc" Gray, a champion track cyclist from Goulburn, NSW. Dunc Gray won Australia's first Olympic cycling medal at Amsterdam 1928 before winning Australia's first Olympic cycling gold at Los Angeles 1932.
Cycling NSW has its office at Dunc Gray Velodrome and uses the track for training and racing, including the annual Clarence St Cyclery Cup and Sydney Cup on Wheels. The track is also used by the NSW Institute of Sport, Bankstown Sports Cycling Club and other local clubs.
Dunc Gray Velodrome is located in the Crest Sporting Complex on Carysfield Road, Bass Hill, near Bankstown in Sydney's south-west. The property is owned and managed by the local council, City of Canterbury Bankstown (external link). Please contact council for venue enquiries.
