Glasgow Scotland UK 2014 Games Bring Inline Skating and Cycling Velodrome

As part of the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Glasgow, Scotland, UK will be getting an indoor cycling velodrome which will also house an "inline skating facility." I wondered if that might be a banked track within the velodrome like they have in Florida and Colorado (outdoor tracks, both), or if it will be just some area to skate in while cyclists fly by on a wooden track. That's not so bad! I wondered if there's any chance inline skating will be included as a demonstration sport, but the list of sports, while including netball, fails to include skating as far as I could tell. The new facility will be adjacent to the Celtic FC stadium, or such is the plan. I believe 71 countries plan to compete in the games. Should be another great sporting event in the UK, even without inline competition. Just for kicks, I've included map links for the Cooper City, FL and Colorado Springs, CO velodromes.

Great news for Glasgow!

And Glasgow can always use great news! Anything indoors to help the kids get off the streets is a good thing there, in my opinion.
