Here at VeloVeritas we keep clear of politics but this seemed like a worthwhile cause to us: the 2022 Commonwealth Games will be held in Birmingham BUT the track cycling events will take place in London. It didn’t seem right to us and we spoke to campaigner for a track in Brum, former racing cyclist, Dave Viner about the situation.
Dave Viner – Track Cycling for Birmingham’s Commonwealth Games to be held in London?
Hugh Porter is supporting a campaign to have an indoor Velodrome built in Birmingham. The campaign was prompted by Birmingham hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games, however the track cycling is planned to be held in London because Birmingham does not have a velodrome.
