Discovery Channel at our Velodrome.
A couple of weeks ago Discovery Channel visited our Velodrome -
The Forest City Velodrome - to shoot footage for their technology program "Daily Planet". They were there for two days featuring the builder Albert, our Juniors and the Short Track Championships where '82 World Champion Gord Singleton won the elite sprint event.
Last night the footage was on TV and is now on the Daily Planet's website
Go down to When it leaves the front page it will still be in the archives. "Bikes on the Brink".
More footage is supposed to be on Friday's Discovery Channel Daily Planet but I don't know the time yet.
I'm so happy for Albert. He's been a track builder, rider and supporter his whole life and this must be a dream come true for him. He truly deserves this.
For those of you outside Canada, I think Daily Planet is maybe just a Canadian program. No matter - the whole TV coverage is in the vid clip.
I never did make it to the velodrome, but it's still on my list! The folks live in Woodstock still, so maybe one of these days...!
nice segment and nice freakin track.
it is a nice track actually... I liked it a lot! I want to comeback there someday...snif...snif..
I'll be there tonight. I'll ride a few for ya. How many would you like?
