London_DuncanIn Pictures: BMX Test Event @ The Olympic Park
As well as taking in the Olympic basketball test event last weekend, Londonist was also at its dirt track cycling equivalent just yards away on the Olympic Park: the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.
Just as final warmups were taking place on Saturday, rain set in about 1:30pm and remained steady for two hours. It began to look like the event might have to be postponed, but the sun came out just in time and, after heroic efforts by the ground staff, a curtailed competition finally got underway at 5:15pm, about fifteen minutes after it was supposed to have finished. Here's some pictures to give you the flavour of the day's events.
