    Oceanside Pump Track

    Just finished up a pump track in my back yard. Tight and small but fun. It will hone your mtb skills. I am looking for some chill human beings to come work it in with me.

    I had help

    I had an outline and one side done but was stalled. A buddy put me in touch with Steve Wentz who builds tracks when not racing DH. He was in town and I paid him to do a bunch. Now I am just dialing it in.

    I rode lee's track last year.

    I rode Lee's track last year. His was built by Steve Wentz, same guy who did mine. I do not have the book but I know it is worth every penny. Lee does good work and has a gift for passing knowledge. I have his other book. I have been riding since I was 15 but it still helped my mtn biking.
    I lived in Boulder for years so I an good friends with a lot of that crew.

    Middle of the road

    They are knobies but with a smooth profile. They would be ok on street but not ok in full on dirt. I cannot remember what they are. I hope to get my track really tightly packed so it is more like the park. The dirt here gets that way so it should work out.

    Of course! Now that my back has healed to ride it's out! I'm building one I'll let you all know when it's complete (hoping by summer). But let me know if there are any others in the aria to shred! Thanks!
