When Rock Hill BMX Supercross (SX) track in South Carolina, USA, was chosen as the venue for 2017 World Championships the city called in Clark & Kent Contractors to carry out essential improvement works to the existing track.
In the summer of 2014, the City of Rock Hill commissioned Clark & Kent to travel to the United States and rebuild their new Novant Health BMX Supercross Track and undertake some specialist tarmacadam surfacing on their corners.
Knowing that the track is to be used for the World Championships in 2017 meant that every aspect of the BMX track build needed special attention to detail.
Build time was approximately for Clark & Kent was two weeks using a typical US specification for the soil and tarmacadam for the corners.
After completion, the track has hosted of a range of BMX race events and the rebuild by Clark & Kent is proving to be a resounding success.
Located at the Rock Hill Outdoor Center in the Riverwalk Development, the Novant Health BMX Supercross Track re-opened in August 2014.
This facility is the first Olympic-standard BMX training facility to open to the general public on the US East Coast.
The track features amateur and elite supercross start hills and a skills-building pump track.
Since the track rebuild, Rock Hill BMX SX has hosted many events such as the USA BMX Gold East Regional Championship, the USA BMX Carolina Nationals, and the USA Cycling National BMX Championships.
As well as hosting world class events and championships, the facility offers instructional programmes, open track sessions for all ages and a pump track where riders can develop their track racing skills.
