I thought I'd make a new thread seeing as there seems to be some interest in discussing it. Is it in search of a dollar or just remaining relevant? BMX was added to the cycling program by dropping two track events. I'd argue that 5 track events each for men and women is plenty and replacing a couple of niche track events with BMX is a great idea. The BMX is a good event and provides more diversity. Surely the Olympics should reflect events athletes and sportspeople actually compete in at a high standard rather than just being about tradition?
