BMX Supercross track in Toronto getting global praise

While the Toronto Sign in an obvious example, you might not be aware of some of the other ones. Take the BMX Supercross track at Centennial Park, for instance.

The striking concrete and steel structure, designed by Toronto-based firm Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz Architects Inc., is the only track in Canada certified by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).

As Toronto's Designlines magazine notes, it includes two start ramps - at 5 and 10 metres each - a 517 metre dirt road and a complex underground drainage system; after it rains, the track can dry within half an hour.
