Beautiful video about the construction of the Dorais Velodrome by the Wolverine Sports Club along with the ABLA National Cycling Championships in July 1969 during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon for the first manned lunar landing.

I really hope we continue to see some community interest in bringing back this velodrome.

Found on Tracko.
