Just been on the British Cycling website. They are currently trumpeting a few concessions by the Olympic Development Agency as a way forward. This includes a road circuit of 1 mile. WOW! I bet the Eastway User Group are wetting themselves with excitement. This flagship facility will then be nearly as good as the Milton Keynes Bowl. IMO this latest fobbing off British Cycling has accepted just shows how the Olympic Games and Government combine to railroad through their plans at any cost. All in the name of profit! When the plans originally produced by the ODA last year were published British Cycling should have objected immediately and threatened not to enter any teams in the London Olympics if this 'land stealing plan' was put into effect. Obviously, the thought of a spanking new velodrome in the capitol could not be resisted by the track obsessed management of British Cycling and were willing to sacrifice the Eastway User Group on the altar of expediency! Do you think that which I've posted is fair comment?
