How does a velodrome help cyclists?

The velodrome allows cyclists to improve their RPM considerably. If you are a climber, and find yourself getting dropped or in difficulty on flatter sections of a race or a ride, going to a velodrome will help you get a feel for riding at a high tempo. If you ride with a group, a velodrome will also help you develop skills of riding in a pack, and it will also teach you good drafting skills and sprinting skills. Some guys can reach over 40mph on the velodrome and hold that speed for a kilometer.
