    Has anyone heard about new racetracks being built in Beijing? I've heard that two new racetracks were being built in Beijing from two people but that was the full extent of their information. And I have not been able to find any corroborating info.

    Anyone...?

    I think there are new tracks going in all over the place. However there are two major stumbling blocks for bikes. The first is that the new owners want to make them exclusively for cars, until they see the track sitting idle the won't get the idea that bikes should be able to use them too. Second problem is that as with many leisure activities in China such as golf the costs to the consumer do not represent a fair cost to the company and high prices keep things exclusively for the wealthy.

    Yeah, the "big bike" situation in China isn't great right now. But we're trailblazers so it's going to be a bumpy ride for us. Eventually... hopefully... things will change.

    Beijing is one of the most amazing place I found around the world for track racing. Lots of new tracks in Beijing for racing. And for racing lover in my view one of the most adventures and also those new tracks which you are talking about is a place in Gaobeidian.
