Soiltac for pump track?

Hey Lee,

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!!

Kind Regards,

Bill T. and the boys

Hey Bill,

Thanks for writing.

I think Soiltac would be awesome on a pump track. It’s a biodegradable polymer that binds soil particles together. Depending on how much you use, you can harden a dirt path, build a military runway or dial an Olympic BMX track. As a matter of fact, it’s used on many major BMX tracks. If you work it right, the surface is like concrete.

I’ve had a five-gallon bucket of Soiltac for a while, and I plan to try on my own pump track. I’ll report when I find time to mess with it.

Soiltac doesn’t sell five-gallon buckets any more. You have to buy a 55-gallon drum, which, as I recall, is about $500 with shipping. That will treat a lot of pump tracks.
