BMX Elite to Compete in Manchester
Date Posted: 05/04/13
Visitors to the UK may well have noticed that the popularity of cycling and other bike-related sports has been on the up for the past couple of years, largely thanks to the phenomenal success of Team GB in the velodrome at the last two Olympic Games, as well as Bradley Wiggins's triumph in the 2012 Tour de France.
And with the country now firmly established as a world leader when it comes to staging international sporting events, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has decided to host the BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester later this month.
Anyone staying in Manchester hotels over the weekend of April 19th and 20th may well want to head down to the National Cycling Centre to check out some of the world's top riders, including Team GB Olympians Shazane Reade and Liam Philips.
Built in 2011, the BMX track at the National Cycling Centre is widely recognised as one of the top facilities in the world and is helping to put British extreme sports on the map.
