no more pump track

The pump track is now gone, but there are jumps, and it will be more fun this winter I think.  Come on out and take a spin!  Click to see a quick video of a run through.

Track is fast and smooth now.

After a week of very hard rain and storms, the track needed some maintenance.  Raked it, watered it, then had a buddy over, and a bunch of kids playing so the track is is great shape now.

I also got the lights up, and they are easy to take down with one person.

Made a quick vid with Phil hitting the new "roll in"

First complete laps!!

Wow, it finally was above freezing and not raining for a week, and I got to work and now have a ridable, packed, very smooth pump track. Had a friend come over and some pretty fast laps were ridden.  He was able to double in one spot, so the design works for advanced riders.

I wanted the track to be more flowable, fun, and jumpable that the first one.  I couldn't double anything yet, but its coming.  In fact, going for some x-rays tomorrow for my attempts.

All in all, I am very happy with the results, and after only about 5 hours riding time on the track, it is very fun and fast.

Here's a couple links:

finally got a complete lap ridden

Tonight the dirt was dry enough to actually ride the first full lap on the track!!  It's been almost 3 months since I first moved the dirt.  It has been raining every time it gets above freezing for at least 2 days.  I have been covering it with plastic, when I can, but it has been tough going. 

Looks like the worst of the winter may be behind us.

I worked on the second straight, and got it smooth.  It will need some fine shaping, but it rode better than I thought.  Berms 2 and 3 were still quite soft tonight.  I think its going to be fast once its dialed and firm.

Hope to get some good time on the track this weekend, and maybe start laying out the center of the figure 8. 

I will post some photos once I get out in the daylight.
