the "cycling park" part of the velodrome project here kicks ass though, tons of mountain bike/bmx/fourcross/downhill stuff got built... just no track...

That sounds pretty rad. Dromes cost a lot more to build than probably all of that stuff combined. Hope it comes through soon, banked turns not bombs.

there's been rumor of a massive velodrome/training complex here in my neighborhood in austin for about 2 years, but nothing has come of it. i'd LOVE to have a facility like that down the road from me, or anywhere closer than houston (2 hours if i haul ass in whatever car i borrow to get there).

I was hoping they'd have that thing ready by now too. I've got some friends in Boise that I'd like to flog on that thing.
