The Union of What ?

Earlier this week the UCI removed the 1,000 and 500 metre track events from the next Olympic Games. The reason for removing these events is to allow BMX riding to become the new part of the cycling events (including the road race, MTB, and time trials).

With all due respect given to the BMX riders I detest that such core events had to make way. A petition has been setup to help persuade the IOC and UCI to rescind on their decision.
