Everything we saw at the Lexus Velodrome grand opening in Detroit

If you travel down I-75 in the Midtown area, you've probably spotted a huge, white tent-like structure set up near the DMC.

It's the Lexus Velodrome — a project that has a lot of competitive cyclists pretty excited. The 64,000-square-foot track cycling arena may well be the most impressive thing happening within the U.S. competitive cycling community — it cost $4 million to build after all.

The velodrome is a Detroit Fitness Foundation project, and was designed by the organization's executive director, Dale Hughes. It opened for the first time on Friday, Jan. 26, 2018. Here's everything we saw.
