    14 foot berm....really? P4X question

    I just marked out a 14' berm. It is really big. Do you think you will be able to maintain/gain speed on a berm that big?
    I just don't understand my wife....she thinks its nuts to ride when the temperature is in the 20's....go figure

    I think if you setup the rollers and/or straight sections to provide the momentum, railing through the 14' berm should not only be do-able, but a physics lesson in g-forces.

    Maybe I can cruise over tonight to take a looksee? Post some pics!

    P4X - The Prophet of the Pump

    I really like P4X's philosophy - keep it difficult, don't dumb down the track by making it to easy.

    Do a big berm with either a roller in it or a couple of different lines, remember there is not supposed to be any flat in the track.

    This pics shows a big berm that might be considered easy. Except for the part about missing the other rider.

    Nice job Swede!

    Do you think we could host the 1st Annual Pump Track Worlds here in the Treasure Valley?

    Well I've got a berm that's at least 30 feet, no matter how you measure it...

    On that note, how are you measuring it as being 14 feet? From start to end in a straight line, or around the curve?
