Starting in January there will be monthly races with thousands of dollars in prize money to attract competitive racing talent from around the region.

Nothing explicit on that link about tickets or an event. There is a schedule but no date.

Am I the only wondering about a velodrome sponsored by a car import company in DETROIT?

Anyway, I wish them the best.

Cycling is a much bigger everything in Europe/Asia.

I know that.

I was simply referencing the irony. I imagine GM and UAW execs passing the track and having to see that reminder daily.

GM owns part of a bike sharing company. Not sure about the other two domestic brands.

I guess I see irony where others don't.

As far as Lexus sponsorship, I waited for someone else to comment first. Here in brand loyal auto country, most new car buyers opt for an A, X, or friends and family discount.

The metro Detroit Lexus owners/lessees are predominantly the accredited lawyers, doctors, and dentists, and an occasional real estate tycoon. These professionals are probably the same group in full kit riding their $5,000-$9,999 CF Madones and Specialized bikes, so they would likely follow competitive cycling.
