Olympic Test Event tickets Go On Sale
Tickets for Olympic Test Events have gone on sale today - with BMX and Mountain Biking two of the first events to host a buildup to London 2012.
Tickets are available exclusively through Ticketmaster.
The Mountain Bike event at Hadleigh Farm takes place on 31 July, followed by the BMX event in London two weeks later between 19-20 August.
London Prepares series:
The London 2012 sports testing programme starts this summer - and we're calling it the London Prepares series. For some of the events in the London prepares series, there are tickets available - offering the public a great opportunity to be among the first to experience world-class sporting action at a London 2012 venue.
Tickets for the Mountain Bike and BMX events will go on sale on 26 May 2011.
The London Prepares series will allow us to test key aspects of our operations ahead of next year's Games - such as results, scoring and timing systems, the fields of play, the venues and the people who will be working to ensure the Games run smoothly.
The Hadleigh Farm Mountain Bike International will bring some of the best mountain bikers in the world to Essex. The event will be the first opportunity for many of the world's top mountain bike riders to race on the new, purpose-built course at Hadleigh Farm - venue for the London 2012 Olympic Mountain Bike competition.
The third round of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Series will see top riders from across the globe get to grips with the jumps, bumps and tightly banked corners of the brand new BMX Track, built especially for the London 2012 Games. This will be one of the first events ever to be staged in the new Olympic Park in south-east London.
