 The organizers dodged a bullet here.The track is nice but seriously flawed, instead of building it up someone tough it was a good idea to dig it just beside a river.Needless to say the drainage is crap....even during summer the grass irrigation is enough to make huge puddles.

 Every town needs one. I've got a gravel pumptrack 3min from home which is pretty great already, but also sketchy. If you don't hit things perfectly, you'll easily lose the front. I recently installed a knobby tire (20x2.35 Schwalbe Smart Sam) on my BMX which does help. But these tarmac tracks seem like so much fun and probably easier to commit and go faster. Would love to have a go on one of these. But it isn't just for me. Anyone on wheels (unmotorized) should have access to such facilities. And these tarmac tracks are just more versatile, especially for those on small wheels (skateboards, scooters, inline skates etc).
