Shocking news from the Shanaze Reade Facebook page today, announcing that she will be departing from BMX to join the Great Britain Track Sprint Team. Although we don't know the extent of what her departure means, she writes "Really excited to join the GB track sprint team! BMX has been my life for the last 15 years.... But I am now ready for a new challenge for Rio 2016!"

Shanaze is actually returning to the track cycling world, after taking a period of time off to concentrate on BMX.  Her departure as a professional track cyclist was after obtaining world titles in 2007 and 2008, and of course now Shanaze is returning with BMX world tiles from 2007, 2008 and 2010.
