It looks like the infamous undeveloped lot at Wells and Harrison will be transformed into a BMX course this summer. There has been a lot of news about this property, but this twist was definitely unexpected. Anyway, should be an unusual but highly entertaining event on May 15th:
This summer, one man’s pile of dirt will become another man’s treasure. Red Bull Stomping Ground will transform an abandoned construction zone into the ultimate dirt playground in Chicago on May 15, 2010. Thousands will be able to witness a BMX dirt competition that will bring the tricks of the trails to an urban mecca, as riders from all over the world will meet in the Windy city to prove who has the best skills.
