If you have ever tried to ride a bike in a velodrome you will quickly realize that it is not a feat for the commoner. Velodrome cycling is an elite sport that requires specialized training, and often specialized bikes. The velodrome is not going to be accessible to the public the same way that mountain biking, road racing or recreational touring is.

One doesn't really need a study to understand this. It could be accessible, but it is very unlikely be so.

I am not anti-velodrome at all, but I harbour no illusions that will be utilized by the broad community in the same way a bike path or playing field would be.

P.S. I have a degree in Physical education and recreation, I have competed internationally, and I am no enemy of, nor friend of, elite sport.
