Work on the BMX World Cup Supercross track in Adelaide, Australia commenced at 12.01 AM this morning at Adelaide Showground. The challenge of preparing the 310 metre track in a record 60 hours has organisers working against the clock.
The track will be used for the Olympic selection event on the weekend and requires a total of 200 truckloads of sand and clay. Beijing Olympic Games BMX track builder Tom Ritzenthaler will be on site to create the unique indoor track which will feature a 7.2 metre start ramp.
