Clark & Kent Contractors were approached by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) to build the new BMX Track for the 30th Modern Olympiad in London.
It was a dream come true as BMX racers; it was an honour to have used the passion, understanding and experience of elite level riding to build what would be the home of the greatest competition on earth and the UK's first Olympic BMX race.
Clark & Kent Contractors were commissioned to rebuild the BMX Supercross track for the 2012 London Olympic Games. Following a pre-Olympic test event arranged by the London Prepares organisation, it was decided that Clark & Kent should make the specialist construction elements required on this ambitious and prestigious project that demanded top-class artistry and huge attention to detail.
The Olympic BMX track, which hosted the BMX cycling competition in the 2012 London Olympics, was remodelled by us and reopened to the public two years later in 2014. please see our portfolio for details.
The floodlit 400-metre track at the former Olympic Park in Stratford has now been adapted for public use. The Olympic BMX track is open to all bikers, from beginners to advanced. The toughest Olympic challenges remain so that advanced and experienced riders can test themselves on the Olympic course.
The BMX track is part of the Lee Valley VeloPark, which also has eight kilometres of mountain bike trails and a one-mile road racing circuit. Floodlights mean that riders can use the track into the late evening, and there is a cafe, cycle hire facility and workshops, and coaching available for bike riding visitors.
