Kicking Horse Bike Park Trail Crew Update 3 2014
No, like I said, my BMX track has one which they use for compacting the entire track, including all features (tables, doubles, whoops, etc.) The things are self-propelled, so they should work perfectly on machine built trails.

Closed trails? Last time I rode those trails, so many kidlets, impossible to approach anywhere near that speed.

Kicking Horse Bike Park Trail Crew Update 3 2014
Watching trail crews using two men to drag a vibration tamper uphill looks painful. My local BMX track owns something like this: http://www.brandt.ca/Divisions/Tractor/Products/Pages/Product.aspx?cat=Products&pid=BW55+E_001%28Brandt%29 Trail compaction just became a one man job. Now you have to go and harass management for more money :)

Panorama Bike Park 2014 - New Jumps and Escape from Alcatraz
Wow, heated debate. I can definitely see d-man's side of the story. To add my humble opinion, what I always found somewhat frustrating when I was first getting into the sport 10 years ago was how all "features" were built at the expert level, with pretty high consequences. It really made it difficult to progress. So, when we talk about parks being designed around progression, I'm all for it. However, I can also see the point the progression means having advanced features for advanced riders to progress on, so ultimately, it's about balance, a little something for everyone. It's been quite a few years since I last rode Alcatraz. I always hated it. I think I was only able to clean the "green" line once. Threading the needle through those trees while turning was crazy difficult. And the drop line was never, in my mind at that time, a great option, because the trail below was always blown out with no real catch berm. So while I can see the point the dumbing down this feature, I glad that they at least did something with it. I'm not convinced that there is room in this sport for teeter-toter drops. Teeters, sure. But teeter drops? The risk spinal injury is too high, even for highly skilled riders who can clean them 95% of the time.

Mass Start Downhill Racing? Inaugural Pinnacle Bike Championship
"The first rider across the finish line wins!" You don't say. Is that how a race works? Derp.
