The velodrome features a 250-metre long, 7-metre wide timber track with 42-degree banked bends and 13-degree banked straights. This Class 1 track is designed to meet the most stringent requirements set by the International Cycling Union (UCI) for international competitions. It is the sole facility in Canada that meets these requirements, which all velodromes must attain to host Olympic, Paralympic and elite world championships.

This is also the first-ever UCI-regulated, accredited indoor track in Canada, and the second in North America. The VELO Sports Centre at the Home Depot Centre complex in Carson, California is the only other covered, UCI-regulated velodrome in Canada/USA.

The timber track is constructed from smooth, untreated Siberian Spruce. Siberian timber is renowned for its hardness, stability and long, straight lines, which makes it ideal in the construction of world-class velodromes and in producing world records. For example, the velodrome built for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games used Siberian Pine. Siberian Spruce is also regarded as the fastest timber, allowing cyclists to reach speeds up to 85 km/hr.
