Backyard pump track: San Jose style

The boys in San Jose, CA have joined the global pump track revolution, and they’ve built a nice one.

Back yards will never be the same.

It’s hard to tell where this goes. Maybe multiple ways? Tony promised to send video.

Dan gets some. I’ve been racing against this guy since 1998.

I was hoping to wax Dan at this year’s Sea Otter, but there goes my pump track advantage …

    Me and Leo G did most of the work. We started the day before thanksgiving, Dan, Nelson, and Lance helped out when they could but most of the work was done by myself and Leo. We finished around x-mas vacation and started riding it in the new year. Here is the breakdown

    Man hours 60

    fastest time 21.8 seconds for one lap

    video to come as soon as I get a fire wire cable.



    PS if your down to drive to San Jo or if your in town early for the Sea Otter call me and we can session the track. C. Keene has my number.
