The Olympics Games are definitely not an event to promote, but BMX is on next week. Stoked! Lets see if Maris can pull it again to win for the 3rd time… Whooops!
BMX is def not what is used to be, but still looking forward for the BMX race at this year’s Olympic games… Check out London 2012, the ladies finale!! Click for video! WOW!!!
With seating for 10,000 and parking for 20,000 (go figure) the Velodrome would host all of the cycling competition on the Michigan State Fairgrounds. Detroit failed against Mexico City. Would the Olympic Games saved Detroit? Probabaly not! But one things for sure, NO OLYMPIA Berlin in 2024! Berlin needs many other things! Nuff said…
It is not surprising that Greece is not a superpower at cycling events. Greece has not the tradition of Spain and Italy. The bicycle is and was not very popular in Greece. Still it’s pretty surprising that there was a Greek gold medal winner at the first Olympic Games in 1896 (if you know how poor Greece was after the independence war and other wars and after 400 years of occupation). Αριστειδης Κωνσταντινιδης was the first gold medal winner ever at an cycling event at the Olympic games.
