A Word about the Northeast Velodrome

In response to last week’s transition at the Londonderry Track in NH, I would like to assure everyone that we are planning to have a full season of training, racing and development programs for all ages and skill levels, including children and juniors. When the opportunity arose to lease the Velodrome property, I embraced the chance to enhance the offerings and build upon what Mr. Eberhardt began some 5 years ago. I understand that change can be uncomfortable, because it presents us with the unknown; I also know that with our resources, and the experience of Kurt Begemann as Track Director, we can exact a positive effect on Cycling in New England. There is a lot more than meets the eye here; unfortunately I am not at liberty to discuss many of the details for several reasons. Rest assured that we understand peoples’ concerns, and are happy to speak with you more offline. The new Northeast Velodrome website will be up and running in a few short days. There you will see information about our upcoming Track Clinic, the training and racing schedules for the year, and other pertinent information about the Track. We hope to see you soon—it’s going to be a great season. Please feel free to email me anytime. Thank you, Jeff Palter
