Test riding one of the first Pumptopia tracks. Oh man, this was so fun!
• Jump/rhythm options on the main straight.
• Crossover options on the interior, with or without jumps.
• Whatever you want! Once the corners are plotted, you can do anything you like on the straights. Rollers, tables, doubles, step-ups, step-downs, camels, use your imagination. As long as the corners fit correctly and you follow the basic rules, you’ll have good flow.
• For a bigger/faster track, you can scale everything up by 20 percent.
Here are some Pumptopia builds:
Oak Creek, CO
Fillmore Bike Park, Fillmore, CA
This Pumptopia track, built in 2011, was the first stage in a bike park in South Germantown, MD. The locals have added a pavilion and dirt jumps, and they’re seeking grants to add even more terrain. A pump track is always a great first stage.
