<p>Today has finally arrived and we are looking at the Novant Health BMX Supercross Track</p> <p>What do you think?</p> <p>Doesn’t it look pretty great?</p> <p><b><i>Clayton John, American Bicycle Association, Former President</i></b> – We welcome this facility to the BMX community. Back in the early days in the 70s, everything was flat track and pretty much one or two jumps for a straightaway at the most.</p> <p><b><i>Dave Williams, Assured Group President, Riverwalk Developer</i></b>- The track itself has innovative designs for elite and amateur start ramps; this is a one of a kind supercross track in the world.</p> <p><b><i>Mike King, BMX Supervisor, Rock Hill, SC</i></b>- The sport of BMX has changed drastically in my opinion.&nbsp; We have these big start hills, we got asphalt corners, and we’ve got different material on the track; I mean, it’s top notch!</p> <p><b><i>Mike McIntyre, Stantec Principal, Action Sport Group Leader-</i></b> People are asking what is the difference between Rock Hill and let’s say the Olympic training center in Chulavista, California? Chulavista California is locked up where it is not accessible to the general public- where here in Rock Hill it is open to the entire community so whether you are a first time racer or an elite athlete you can come here and practice every week.</p> <p><b><i>Cole Tesar, 17-18 Expert Class, Huntersville, NC-</i></b> I think it will bring a lot of riders in from all over the US and all over the world really.</p> <p><b>J<i>ace Walker, 15 Expert Class, Burlington, NC –</i></b>I like it and its super fast!</p> <p><b><i>Lydia Tucker, 11 Girls Class, Madison, NC</i></b>- This track is absolutely amazing! &nbsp;The first straight coming down the starting hill, that has to be my favorite part.</p> <p><b><i>Mike King, BMX Supervisor, Rock Hill, SC</i></b>- I have been to 25+ world championships from all over the world and this place is world class on every level.</p>
