Velodrome construction being done in between cycling events

Posted: Updated:

Evidently the Olympic velodrome isn't finished even halfway through the track cycling program.

The building was nearly empty during a break between morning and evening sessions Saturday when workers in the upper deck and began pounding, grinding, sawing and drilling in several sections.

They appeared to be making sure seats and railings were secured.

The $56 million velodrome was delayed numerous times during the run-up to the Rio Games, forcing the cancellation of a test event. Even early this week, there was still sawdust on the ground, toilets that didn't flush and signage waiting to be hung.

The track program began Thursday. It concludes Tuesday.
