British Cycling will give £110,000 of the £160,000 required to save the Preston Park velodrome from closure

Preston Park Velodrome

The future of Preston Park velodrome in Brighton looks to be safe after British Cycling said it would fund the majority of the £160,000 required to bring the facility up to scratch.

The velodrome closed in 2015 over safety fears, but BC will stump up £110,000 to help it re-open, with the other £50,000 coming from section 106 funding contributions from planning applications.
