Canadian Cyclist has learned that after a lot of negotiations, a proposal has be put forward to build a permanent velodrome in Hamilton for the 2015 Pan Am Games bid. Only a few weeks ago, it looked like the velodrome might be scrapped, or only a temporary one erected, after estimates put the cost in excess of $40 million. However, it now appears that a much less expensive structure has been proposed, which funding partners are prepared to support. More details are expected next week.
