They were available a few years ago. I suggest you find a dealer in your locality and ask them.
I have the older Ridley Oval track bike and I love it. Fairly lightweight, 6061 alum alloy, made in Belgium, very stiff, rides well an 41 degree banked track.

I am UK based and bought mine on eBay. The previous owner bought the frame and never got round to building it up. I am new to track so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I am loving it so far as my first bike.

I also saw some press photos of Caleb Ewan riding a Ridley Arena Alloy for the upcoming London Six Day series. Whether he ends up riding the alloy or the carbon version I don’t know.
