A REBUILT and redesigned BMX track equipped for training ahead of the 2012 Olympics has been formally opened at Tipkinder Park in Victoria Avenue at Crewe.
It has been built at a cost of more than £200,000 and is one of the first floodlit BMX tracks of its standard in the country.
The track offers a training facility for riders such as Crewe’s Shanaze Reade, a three-time BMX world champion.
She said: “I am delighted that the Crewe track, where my career started, has been redesigned and updated and I am looking forward to training again in my home town.
“BMX racing has taken me all over the world and I am confident I will be competing in this year’s Beijing Olympic Games. I hope to encourage and welcome more people to BMX racing along wit the Cheshire Ghostriders BMX club at Crewe.”
