Video: Mark Weir's Pump Track

Apr 10, 2013
by Dan Milner  

WTB.com describes Mark Weir as, "...a well-rounded rider who specializes in suffering, Mark Weir, 38, has remained a successful and dominant force in downhill and endurance racing throughout his career."

When the Trail Ninja (aka Dan Milner) goes in search of pump track mojo he finds it in Mark Weir's backyard.

 I have kids. I need a pump track so I can ride at home and teach the groms how to tear it up. Today my daughter and I were watching a video. She's three. She looks at me and says "I do that when I grow up, k dady?" I am the proudest man on earth. I need a pump track for her.

 The guys down the road had one in their back yard they never finished. They let me take some of their clay to build my own. I miss riding at home. I was hoping 101 mean't how to build a pump track as good as Mark Weir.

 You can help a community a Pump Track today. The Bell Built grant voting for $100,000 ends 4/12.

I suggest voting for Steamboat Springs, CO and their Bear River Bike Park in the Bell Built Grant, but compare the projects and decide. What we lost and hope to replace: vimeo.com/61271140

Please vote now! www.facebook.com/BellBikeHelmets/app_228716427271717

Don't forget to vote for a trail in the Flow and DH categories too. Tahoe's Corral trail would be great for all who live near any USFS managed lands in the US.

 My wife made me move from Utah to Georgia. I told her in order for that to happen, I want a pump track in my back yard woman. We just moved into our new house last week, PRIME space for a pump track. I start digging this Fall. Bitches!

 Me too. I don't live to far from Mark Weir and was thinking while I was watching this how awesome it would be to ride this with him. Hes just so awesome and nice I feel like him and I are friends. Then he pulled out the shotgun and its like oh yea im trespassing in my daydream.

 What bike is Weir riding? Doesn't look like a Cannondale?
  • + 0
 His trail bike was a Jekyll, which is obviously a Cannondale, but who knows about his hardtail? Is he sponsored by Cannondale?
  • + 2
 Yes it is a Cannondale, a couple of years old, and they don't make it anymore. Maybe they should!?
