I remember reading about BMX racing being in the upcoming Olympic as an actual event this time around (as opposed to a trial event), with the UCI/NBL doing the officiating as they do during the Worlds.
i remember that article too, or at least the one that was in the Washington Post.
i think it would be great, because if road biking is a sport(just riding your bike really fast and for long distances), and so is snowboarding (where the races have jumps and turns and involve more than just riding) then BMX is a sport, i will definatly watch it...
is it set in stone, or is it still an idea that their toying with?
any racers committed?
i was reading about it on espn.com and other sites (googled it in) and its supposed to be in 2008 olympics (summer china)...whatever year, n e wayz.....there gonna take out to other bicycle competitions and put in a womens bmx-race and a mens bmx-race....they havent picked which comps yet though.
You're actually quite the idiot yourself. The venue for the 2008 Olympic Games is due to be decided July 13, in Moscow. Beijing has a very good chance of hosting them. I guess we'll settle this argument in about 10 days.
