    Build it, and they will whine. Or something like that...

    Nicely done Don! While it would be nifty to have a roof someday, it's already a great track with a pretty incredible sense of community and hasn't officially opened yet. When compared to what many of us spend on Bikes, tires and entry fees, the track is actually pretty affordable. I'll admit, I was skeptical like many but the few times i got out with my club and turned left I was damn happy. I can't wait for the chance to get out there again!

    Just hoping the raining stops for a week so they can pave the parking lot so it re-opens this year.

    I'll state the obvious right from the start. The Boulder Valley Velodrome has been slow to get built, with a number of glitches that have stymied the developers.

    But what's with all the armchair criticism????? Just two people, Frank Banta and Doug Emerson (not me, certainly not any of the people taking shots at their results to date), made the commitment to make this velodrome a reality.

    And amazingly, they did it. Un f***'ing believable if you ask me. Searched for and found land. Paid for it. Found a designer. Got permits. Bankrolled labor and materials. Started construction. Watched the track get blown down. Built it again. All privately funded.

    Along the way they asked for people to join them in their quest. Founders. Club Members. Sponsors. Many did, and that gave them the strength to carry on when the challenges seemed insurmountable.

    Others didn't jump on the bandwagon, and some of them even felt that somehow the track had not met their expectations, posting negative comments like "Why so many required days for certification?", "Why isn't the track covered for winter riding?, "Why is this track so expensive to ride on?".

    You've got to be kidding me! Complaining because you don't like what somebody else has built with their own money? I'm reminded of the famous bumper sticker...."If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem".

    Having completed a number of the certification sessions I can state that I have NEVER heard a negative word from anyone that is actually on the track and riding. We are jubilant with the opportunity to enjoy such an amazing facility. From teens to 70s we're out there, smiling and loving it.

    So, to Doug and Frank...THANK YOU! Your incredible fortitude to bring this project to the finish line is beyond remarkable. Those of us who have seen what ten years of your blood, sweat and tears to make the track a reality have accomplished salute you.

    And I would recommend that anyone who wants to criticize first puts some skin in the game with a club or founder membership. Then we'll know you are committed to a successful track instead of just being a whiner.

    No, Doug and Frank didn't write this "unofficial" post, so don't blame them. I wrote it, and I welcome your response.
