Ok, first, SO happy for Detroit - this will be so good for the city to have a velodrome. That said, I'm sad for Chicago because it's also a city that could really benefit from an indoor velodrome like this. 

An indoor cycling track in Detroit is expected to draw bike riders from other cold-weather states and across the U.S. while giving inner-city youth the opportunity to participate for free in the fast-moving and growing sport.

The Lexus Velodrome, which will have its grand opening Monday, is in an inflatable, climate-controlled dome a few miles north of a new professional hockey and basketball arena and close to a site proposed for a professional soccer stadium.
