FIVE months after the furore over the fate of the dilapidated Velodrome Rakyat in Ipoh, promises made are yet to be honoured.
Despite commitments by Ipoh City Hall (DBI) and the Perak State Government that the velodrome will be restored after being left in its current state
since 2001, questions remain as to whether the facility for which Malaysians contributed hard cash to build will be ever be revived.
While the Perak Cycling Association (PCA) have done their part in triggering concern over the matter, action as promised by the relevant authorities
is falling short of expectations.
That has also put Perak in a dilemma, seeing that among the promises made was for Velodrome Rakyat to be restored in time for hosting the third leg of
the Asian track cycling circuit, aptly named the Sultan Azlan Shah Asia Cup, initially scheduled for September.
