Question: Why are bike tracks slanted?

Banking in the turns, called superelevation, allows riders to keep their bikes relatively perpendicular to the surface while riding at speed. These compromises make the track ridable at a range of speeds. From the straight, the curve of the track increases gradually into the circular turn.

Are all velodromes the same size?

A Velodrome is a purpose built arena for Track Racing. Olympic standard velodromes are minimum 250 metres in circumference. Other velodromes can range from 150 m to 500 m, although 333.33 m is popular. The length of the track multiplied by a round number of laps or half laps should result in 1.000 m.
