Glasgow Scotland UK 2014 Games Bring Inline Skating and Cycling Velodrome

As part of the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow, Scotland, UK will be getting an indoor cycling velodrome which will also house an "inline skating facility." I wondered if that might be a banked track within the velodrome like they have in Florida and Colorado (outdoor tracks, both), or if it will be just some area to skate in while cyclists fly by on a wooden track. That's not so bad! I wondered if there's any chance inline skating will be included as a demonstration sport, but the list of sports, while including netball, fails to include skating as far as I could tell.

Jennifer Rodriguez Switches from Speedskating to Track Pursuit Cycling

Here's a very interesting article by Sharon Robb on Olympic speedskater Jennifer Rodriguez and her switch to competitive cycling, her effort to reach the Olympic level in a the sport, and more. It mentions the Brian Piccolo velodrome where skaters and cyclists work out together on separate tracks. It is a great facility. For a brief movie of the place see my minimovie at:
