London Olympics: BMX CyclingThe fast and furious BMX Olympic event is much like the Snowboard Cross of the Winter Olympics - but on wheels and without the snow. Played out on a custom-built BMX Track next to the Velodrome in the Olympic Park, the BMX races feature jumps, rollers, ramps, tight bends and, usually, the odd crash or two. Just ask British gold medal hope Shanaze Reade - the current BMX world champion was one of the favourites in the women's race as BMX made its debut at Beijing 2008, but an unfortunate crash ended any chances of a medal. The men's and women's heats and finals take place from Wednesday 8 to Friday 10 August and should see their fair share of thrills and spills. Interesting fact: BMX bikes only have one gear and one brake.

 

About London Olympics BMX Track

The adapted Olympic BMX Track, the home of the BMX Cycling competition in the 2012 London Olympics, reopens to the public on 4th March 2014, a year and eight months after the Games. The floodlit undulating 400 metre track at the former Olympic Park in Stratford has been adapted so that members of the public - from beginners to more advanced riders - can use it.
