There has been a lot of news coming to light recently that BMX was going to feature a part in the London Olympics opening Ceremony. Sadly the Olympic comity cut the Olympic Ceremony time, from what I have heard it was to ensure that people could get home in time via public transport.
A lot of friends were going to be in this Olympic BMX display team so i was pretty disappointed to hear we wouldn’t be seeing them in the Opening performance. Here is a behind the scenes video from the Bike Dove performance. It doesn’t involve any BMX but you can see in the background the jump boxes that were going to be used. This would of really helped BMX, but not surprisingly it was something that the organizers found easy to cut from the Ceremony.
