Below is a link to a news item confirming Torbay Councils decision to fund a new velodrome, at Clennon Valley, near Paignton.
The council have agreed to fund half the projects, to the sum of £780,000, with British Cycling match-funding this figure.
This is a brilliant piece of news for a region who have produced some great cyclists, but have always fallen behind when it comes to funding sports projects.
With projects like this, and the Plymouth Life Centre, the region is starting to get the development of sporting facilities that it has long deserved.
Well done Torbay Council!
