Talk in Rock Hill, South Carolina, continues about the possibility of an indoor velodrome according to WBTV. Five years after the idea was proposed, the Rock Hill City council will meet in three weeks to make a decision about whether to take the next step, a formal agreement with the Carolina Velodrome Association (CVA), which would head the project at the abandoned Celanese Plant.

Should the council decide in favor, the CVA would have the fall and winter for financing the required US$4 million. An anonymous donor has already promised a half-million dollars and local developers have agreed to contribute the velodrome's land.

Organizers are touting the recently developed US National Whitewater Center, now a training center for Olympians, in West Mecklenburg County as an example project.
