Remove that brake cable behind, apply loads of heat (heat gun or blowtorch) on surrounding area of the bearing, find something 'L' or 'T' shapped that you can get inside to extract the bearing and use leverage to pull the track out, remember heat is the key, you could try banging with a copper mallet on the back of that once it's really hot.
Let me know how you get on.
