Nothing like trying to find out if possibly anyone else is doing that. Or has done that in the recent past, and present, working with community boards, city government, olympic nyc. 2012, Parks dept. and thousands of corporations for at least 20 years. But Have At It….


Many of us NY track cyclist have been waiting for something like this for decades… the thing is, it’s going to be out of control!


Matt is seriously connected. If anyone can find the money to build a velodrome in the most expensive city in the world Matt can.
The funny thing is it’s a not for profit, kinda like Cadence. I can’t believe that place makes any money, look at the overheads. Lucky for all of us Jay has more money than God.


kissena was hopping this weekend. really great time out there with a huge turnout on saturday, and slightly fewer on sunday (heat, long day, spring series?). it was really fun. unfortunately the heat and exhaustion coupled with big fields full of slightly rusty track riders made for a few unfortunate crashes towards the end in the women’s and lower men’s fields. thanks again to alan, who (as usual) put on a great program.
