Newts notwithstanding, the 2012 London Velodrome is going to be “unique, not just in this country, but internationally,” said Richard Arnold of the Olympic Delivery Authority. He was talking at British Cycling’s recent National Council Meeting.
Depending on your bent, the new Velodrome looks like a horse’s saddle (a ’saddleback’, said Arnold) or a Pringle. Whichever way you look at it, it’s visually stunning.
Arnold said there’s a see-through layer of glass at public concourse level, allowing views both out of the Velodrome into London and into the velodrome at track level for those passing by.
Here’s a video fly-through of the Velodrome. Check out the see-through trackies:
