A sweet pump sesh at my house

Two developments:

1. The infield has been flag-stoned — Better Homes & Pump Tracks baby!

2. We had quite the crew — assorted beginners, sports, experts and pros; a former Czech national champion; and a current world champion.

Our bro’ Yosei Ikeda took lots of pictures. And now, in alphabetical order:

Brian Lopes is in town to see his friend Ernesto and set up a track for the Jeep King of the Mountain Race in Vail.

As you might expect, he was ripping it pretty good.

Fast and low, low and fast.

Factory Clay Watson with the crossover approach.

Partial cast list: Bobbi, Petr, Grant, Ryan, Jon, Clay.

Dylan is the manual master.

Evan’s intense like a Wolverine.

James cuts through the yard — and a throng of fans.

Out of the berm and over the tricky little double-table. Sweet style.

There it is.

Everything about Joey’s turn is tight and right — except for that tuft of hair.

Joey rips the Patio Straight while Hershey plans his next move — usually onto the track.

That Jon Watt — I’ll tell you what.

Waaatt Waaaaaatt Waaaaaaaaatt!!!

Super low, looking where he wants to go, letting his bike follow the high line.

To nail this transition, you have to pump this berm VERY hard.

I’m supposed to be on a Caribbean island right now. But with this in your yard, why travel?

Lopes takes careful notes.

Have I mentioned the P.1 rips? This is probably the best dollar-to-fun ratio in the sport.

Petr Hanak, shortly before his axle snapped.

Petr rocks my SX. Funny: That bike does things with him that it won’t do with me.

Zach is the newest member of our merry band, and he’s learning to rip like a champ.
