Erie Velodrome hit by Storm

More from the Daily Camera

"This is clearly going to be a setback," said Frank Banta, president of Boulder-based Boneshaker LLC. "Before this damage hit, the track was 80 percent complete -- now it's about 60 percent complete."

He said the destruction could delay the velodrome's debut -- it will be only the second such facility in Colorado -- by two months or more, pushing most of the opening team racing activity from the autumn to the spring of 2014. Before the storm, the Boulder Valley Velodrome was scheduled to open in late summer.
