The usual canadian channels will likely be playing a lot of it (CBC, TSN, Sportsnet). They usually have an online counter-part, Ill try and post what I find as they start to publish.

I can't seem to find any registration links on the site - how do I register for intro and certification or put myself on the waiting list?

The new schedule, along with registration, comes out early August. I think there is a newsletter you can sign up to on the track's site that will keep you updated with when it all comes out.

The first few weeks will be busy, we have Nationals and then MIC in October.

Pretty close to a full UCI schedule, like a word cup or something would have

here is "last years", which was actually January

Milton International Challenge Presented by CISCO - Domestic - Events - Track - Cycling Canada Cyclisme


Because we had it AFTER world cup rounds started, I think a lot of countries bailed on it last time. This time its a Class 1 event that you could use to qualify for worlds, so hopefully we see lots out. We still had Trinidad, US, Dutch, German riders last time. I tell people who want to see the PanAm games to save their money and come to this instead lol

ESPN will offer complete coverage of the Games; I bet "complete coverage" will include very little, if any, track cycling :-(

I would hope medal rounds but like olympics a lot of things happen concurrently.


cbc:
Pan American Games 2015 - CBC Sports there is already a video up of one of the journalists riding the track

From a digital perspective, CBC/Radio-Canada will again provide Canadians with unprecedented coverage with more than 650 hours of live streaming competition coverage of the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games through cbc.ca/panam in English and ici.radio-canada.ca/panam in French, and via an upcoming app presented by CIBC for iOS and Android mobile devices (available in English and French). Additional features of the website and app will include the latest live and on-demand video, instant results, medal standings and news from in and around the events


Also the airport I fly from is about 5 miles from the track (convenient!) and I took a quick loop last week to check out the setup. Ill try and grab more pictures as it fills up, maybe get lucky and get a flyby of the TT assuming there are no helicopters.

The new parking lot looks great.

Couldn't they have spaced those letters better
