Two Olympic track cycling events, the men's 1km and the women's 500m, have been taken out of the program for the 2008 Games in Beijing to make way for BMX. The sport's world governing body, UCI, announced the move overnight (AEST).

BMX makes its debut appearance in China, and the UCI decided at a meeting in the Hague that the other two events would have to be scrapped. However, both the men's 1km race, which has been one of Olympic track cycling's core events, and the women's 500m, which made its debut at Sydney in 2000, will still appear in world championships.

Cycling is ok, but a bit boring. But to bring BMX into the olympics is awesome, great idea.. Next it will be skateboarding!

BMX in the olympics would be cool, could be just as big a hit as the beach volleyball..
