Photos are just in from our 'man on the ground in Manchester' Ged the Head from Brooklyn Machine Works UK. We heard the rumour that an exact replica of this years Olympic BMX track was being built in the city of Manchester, and here it is, right next to the Man City football ground. And who is it for? Well gold hopeful Shanaze Reade will be training on it in preparation for China, along with one male rider. We have no idea if the track will be open to the public or even how long it will be around. One of the seven wonders of the World? Ha. Cheers Ged, and thanks for the photos.
