We recently bought your book “Welcome to pump track nation.”
We live in the countryside, about 30km away from Bogotá, in Colombia.
Our son, Rafael, is a 17-year-old enduro rider and he had a few months ago, the great idea of building a pump track.
We would really like you to help and guide us. We have a pump plan already but it would be great if you could take a look at the land we have for this purpose, and give us your precious opinions and tips.
Thank very much and we hope to hear from you very soon!
Paula, Enrique and Rafael
You stopped using Strava three years ago because it brought out your crazy. But today, after four hours teaching and riding, you turn on Strava to time the climb.
Do you want to ride faster with less effort? Do you want to drop the competition with style and grace? How about having more fun when you ride?
What self respecting cyclocrosser doesn’t want these things?

Pump Track Nation is growing!
I worked with local officials and riders to create designs and build specifications for beginner and (very) expert pump tracks. The locals, led by enduro star Kyle Warner, executed what looks like a beautiful build.
Check out these LLB-designed pump tracks—one advanced and one beginner—in the town of EagleVail, CO.
My wife, girls and I will be riding there this weekend!
I want to put some of the best riding—ever!—in one place for us mortals to study. I’m looking for clean shredding.
Check these out, and tell me what I missed!
UPDATED July 7, 2015 with Greg Minnaar’s World Cup DH winning run.
UPDATED July 6, 2015 with Andreu Lacondeguy’s beautiful violence.
By now most of the internet knows Aaron Gwin won last week’s World Cup downhill in Leogang without a chain. He broke it out of the gate, shrugged it off then railed and pumped his way to a win—over the best riders in the world—the rest of whom pedaled!
Totally rad. Go Aaron. Go America. Go God.
Update July 3, 2015: Added link and summary of Dirt article “Aaron Gwin – Chainless – How did he do it?”
Check out this pair of pump tracks I designed for a 5-star resort on the coast of Portugal.
These tracks were built by the resort’s construction crew—and they look fun!
The beach view isn’t bad either.
A new member of Pump Track Nation shared this note from his wife:
Our first multi-day destination camp is done, and it was beyond awesome. I’m still jazzed … and I’m planning improvements to the next camp.
