The British BMX star Shanaze Reade is leaving the North West for a career in America.
After two failed attempts to win a gold medal at the Olympic games, Crewe's Shanaze Reade is moving to California to race on the professional circuit.
The four-time World Champion hopes it will improve her chances of gold in Rio in two years time.
Olympian Shanaze Reade from Crewe will lead Great Britain's team into the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester in 10 days time at the National Cycling Centre from April 19-20th.
Reade and Abbie Taylor will compete in the women's events.
