    Richmond rumors? VA that is!

    I've been hearing rumblings of a multi-sport, multi-use park of some kind in the Richmond, VA area.

    Anyone here know if we're gonna get a new track with that?

    Thanks,

    M

    Richmond VA is host to the 2015 UCI Road World Championships, I would not doubt if they are ramping up towards having facilities, racers, community who are supportive of the up coming world championships!!! ps. have room for a boarder come 2015?

    If I'm still in NoVA in 2015, sure.

    I just picked up spokes for a front wheel. D/A low-flange track/GL330 or Campy Crono box-section tubular. Fixin to go build it up on this rainy Tuesday.

    The proposed velodrome is part of a sports training complex going up in Chesterfield county, just off Midlothian turnpike. At this writing, said complex consists of a bunch of soccer fields and an ice rink. It's hard for me to tell just what the chances for a velodrome are-- I know it's in the mix, but the guy in charge of the entire thing is a real whealer dealer and is trying to sell the whole thing as community development-- in other words, he seems to be fishing for a lot of gubbamint dollars. But who knows, with the Worlds in 2015, we might just get a velodrome. Interestingly, the "Sportsquest" website has no mention of a velodrome on it anywheres. It's not even on a list of their future facilities.

    At this moment, SportsQuest(said facility) is having some real financial difficulties as well.

    The county has bent over backwards and gotten in bed pretty deep with the owner which does not sit well with a lot of people in Chesterfield.

    Here is a link to the county's newspaper with all of the SportsQuest stories.
