boulder velodrome

I just read this article this morning. I'm stoked.

Has anyone else heard about this?

C'mon ... that's gotta be a joke, right? I mean, I'd love to see it, but ... we'll see.

For my other obsession, tennis, I've been waiting to see whether a much less expensive proposal would go through -- the tennis center at Valmont, out near the ballfields. But as always, the question is where the money is going to come from (even though, from the looks of all the commercial construction in this town, money apparently grows on trees).

So the real question here is, who's ponying up the $25 mill for this?

It would be awesome.
BTW- If anyone wants to, and I know it's short notice, an e-mail I got for more info. It's today tho, in an hour and a half.

Wow, I"m bummed I missed that meeting. That would have been rad.

Hopefully there will be some progress on it when I get back to the states in June.

Sweet! I love Boulder. Great college town. Man, I would've loved to gone to college up there. I have a couple friends in that area. Hopefully, I'll get to visit when the weather is nice for some riding and how they get that velodrome in good shape too!

A 'velodrome' in Boulder?
 
Well, it doesn't look like it yet to me... In the September 2008 issue of Rocky Mountain Sports there is a brief mention of the 'velodrome' - a '138 meter track' - on page 8. This got me excited and I drove to the location today during lunch... Doors locked, no cars in the parking lot, but on the building there was a banner announcing the velodrome. So, I peaked in the windows and I saw nothing but an empty warehouse, a warehouse so small I could not imagine a velodrome... Is 138 meters adequate anyway???

Well, it seems like a good idea, but who knows yet if it will be built and, if it is built, will 138 meters be large enough for track racing?

Here's the link:
