A ton of work has gone into the bike park here in Kernville since the last time I posted anything. The BMX track is done and getting smoothed out nicely. The pump track is all ridable now without pedaling and there is a huge wall ride on it. The skills course has really taken off with tons of lines. The grand opening was last weekend and we put on our first real NBL BMX race. I raced in cruiser class and got first. Scotty got second. (There were only 2 of us in our class). It was a blast.
The next morning my son Colby and I went out to ride the track some more. We brought the helmet cam along to get some footage. Here is a look at the BMX and pump tracks.

The skills park is what I have been working on the most. The course is allready becoming a web with at least 30 possible lines and we haven't even used 1/3 of the space yet. Most of the stuff is at the intermediate level with a few advanced lines. Next we are going to build the beginner area and some basic drops. Future plans include a several mile XC couse that circles the entire property and incorperates some of the beginner stunts. We shot some footage here to and Colby did a great job on his first real filming assignment. He kept me in frame pretty good and soon he was directing me as to where to go next.

If you are up in the Kernville area you should stop by and check it out. More stuff is being built weekly.
