Pump track racing at a new level

Pump tracks are a worldwide success, combining rolling jumps with banked turns, they are accessible to all. Riders use the track features to gain momentum and attack the track as fast as possible. “The Red Bull Pump Track World Championship has advanced the sport of pump track racing to a whole new level. It was impressive to see how hard professionals and amateurs battled it out on Velosolutions Pump Tracks around the world,” said Claudio Caluori, CEO at Velosolutions.

Qualifying for the final

Each qualifier will begin with timed runs from which the top 32 riders will advance to the knockout heats. Depending on the track at each qualifier, racing will take place in either a head to head battle or a time trial format. While the top 4 riders of each qualifier advance to the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Final, the winners even get their full trip payed.

 Barry Nobles switched from MTB to BMX because he knew what Adrian Laron was going to bring, as far as speed. Barry was 3rd in finals, but almost won the whole damn thing!! Many of them said they were just as fast on MTB, as BMX bikes. The 20' wheels were SO damn fast!!I attended 3 quallys and the Championship. It was a damn blast!!

 @BrianMcG: 20" wheels will switch direction quicker and give more pump, but it does depend on the track. If the surface is rough, 26" or 29" wheels will roll better.

 No, I think they mean Oceania. One of those could be in Australasia, though, so maybe even Australia itself. We'll have to wait until all the qualifiers are announced.
