Based on what I've heard the people who are really pushing for this move are cyclists themselves. They say the downtown stadium doesn't link to any cycling routes and is hard to access. By contrast they say Dundas has good connections with existing cycling routes, and is near where many cycling clubs meet anyways. City council seems to have jumped to their side rather quickly.

Not sure how much money these cycling clubs are contributing...

Truthfully though, if we build a velodrome, I think it'll be an attraction regardless of where it is. There are so few of these things in North America that I don't think moving it across town is going to achieve dramatically different results.
