Yes, my backyard pump track is finally underway. The property is steep, the contour promising and the trees intriguing. I’ve been too busy to tackle this on my own, so I’ve engaged The Man Himself — James Hall, the best shaper in the northern hemisphere, soon returning to the southern hemisphere — to help make this dream real.
• Use the available terrain.
• Minimize digging.
• Drain well.
• Pumpable for endurance sets.
• Lots of line options.
• Jumpable options.
• Wind through the trees and surf the terrain like a sweet XC trail.
• Be rad.
Today James and I finalized the Phase 1 layout. Digging starts asap.
We expect to learn a lot about building pump tracks on steep natural terrain.
I expect the babies to win Strider Worlds in 2012.
Stay tuned as this comes together.
Know more. Have more fun!
