They say all good things come in threes and so we want to take you on a little journey through the vastness of the western province of Canada noble named Alberta. Imagine yourself cruising on a wide road through Alberta’s countryside – yes, exactly like in road trip movies – no traffic and cornfields for miles. Yellow and red leaves reflected in the sun or on the wet asphalt of the streets after beeing flooded by an autumn rain.
That’s the area where three Velosolutions asphalt pumptracks have been built in September. Scenic, calm and laid-back. Not quite as relaxed was the building of the pumptracks, though. Due to the heavy rainfalls, typical for this season, it wasn’t easy to stick to the timetable. Claudio Caluori had to leave the Canadian Velosolutions crew after the first of three builds in Wildwood, for the World Cup Finals and the World Championships with Gstaad-Scott. He was replaced by two other Velosolutions crew members, flying in from other projects around the world.
After all, Wildwood, Evansburg, and Niton Junction are hooked with their pumptracks and the worldwide phenomenon can be proofed once again: No matter how small the town is, the asphalt pump tracks are flooded by kids. Never stopping to ride, never wanting to leave, until the parents take them home.
Velosolutions Canada is ready for more! And Utah, South Africa, Scotland, Latvia, and Austria are currently already on it!
