Never been on, or even seen a velodrome in person, but I admit I get a bit of a mental picture of one of those 'sphere of death' things with the dude on an mx trials bike spinning in circles.
I'm just excited that it's moving forward. I'd love to give track racing a try, but with my schedule I don't have the time to drive to Detroit or Trexlertown on a regular basis. This is ~15 minutes from work for me.
There's a good sized, diverse cycling community in the area, so hopefully this will be a success.
