The Lindsey Wilson College cycling program and coach David Grigsby are busy this summer. Plans for the area's first BMX track are under way. The track will add yet another discipline to the Lindsey Wilson cycling program and bring more world-class student-athletes to the Lindsey Wilson campus. The track is located behind the former Aaron Medical Center in Columbia, just minutes from the Lindsey Wilson campus.
Below is a photo diary of the BMX track as it becomes a reality.
