A Velodrome May Be Built in Hamilton


As part of the plans for Toronto hosting the 2015 pan-am games, Hamilton may get a velodrome. Rob Roberts writes, in The National Post:
Hamilton is slated for a ... permanent velodrome (which almost got cut for a lack of funding), but city councillors in Steeltown are balking at spending money on a marquee sporting event in tough economic times. They vote next week on participation.
I had selfishly been hoping that Toronto would get the velodrome. On the other hand, they could have just held the indoor bike races in the veolodrome in London; at least Hamilton is a bit closer.

More realistically, I'd probably never use the velodrome. Biking to Hamilton sounds nice though.
