A purchaser of Welcome to Pump Track Nation is thinking outside the box.
Stoked: I just delivered specs for a pump/jump/flow/race track that Hilride will build at Stafford Lake Bike Park in Marin.
This track is designed for all levels of riders—and for head-to-head racing! Here’s the overview:
A guest piece from Shawn Wilson, owner of Epicenter Cycling in Aptos, CA and designer of the original Epicenter Pump Track.
Hand tools are stacked in the garage, but the Mac is fired up. I’m working on a pump track design for the Stafford Lake Bike Park in Marin.
This is one of the best questions in a long time. That’s why it got buried in my email.
A story in Popular Mechanics magazine is a sure sign the Pump Track Nation is going mainstream.
Check out the spread:
This Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We’re gonna clean things up and get the pump track super dialed for Worlds. The city bought 30 yards of filtered topsoil, so it’s gonna be good!

This year we ran the second-ever Sea Otter Classic Speed and Style event. It was speedy and stylish.
I bought the book and built one of your tracks. Then bought your MTB book and the bmx book.
Now I want to buy a dedicated pumptrack bike but am trying to be cost effective.
Question 1: Do I want/need a front shock for pump track? Some things I read seem to say no others seem to think it is cool.
Question 2: Should I get a bmx, cruiser or dirt jump 26”? I ride my Santa Cruz Nomad on the trails and tried to convert my Kona Humu but it has too long of chain stays.
I live on an island and have dealer representation for Kona (downside), Redline (d-26) and Specialized (P.1). These are all 26” dirt jumpers but I do rock best right now on my daughters 24” Torker! Should I get a 24”... 20”
Let me know if you have thoughts. You are my mentor. I will learn the Kung fu…
The Turner Posse is building a pumptrack at our house and wondered what your thoughts are on using Soiltac to reduce maintenance and retain consistency? Thanks Lee, we love your witty (and usually insightful) responses. See you out there, BRAAAAAPP!!
