Rock Hill park could add BMX Supercross, Cyclocross

Apr 2, 2010 7:44:00 AM - thestate.com
Wowed by talk of Olympic trials and world championship races, Rock Hill leaders on Thursday embraced expanded plans for a cycling park near the Catawba River.

When the idea first surfaced more than five years ago, organizers talked about a velodrome - an oval concrete track.

A more ambitious plan is now envisioned. With guidance from USA Cycling, city officials and a group of area bikers pushing the park want to add BMX Supercross, Cyclocross, a paved road course and mountain bike trails.

The centerpiece is still a $4million velodrome, with lighting, stadium seats and a press box.

It's viewed as a key early attraction at Riverwalk, a mega-development on the old Celanese industrial site off Cherry Road along the Catawba. An office park, shopping village and hundreds of homes are planned in coming years.
