Crank up your pumping power for some incredible head-to-head racing on the Pump Track. Two riders on the track at the same time racing pursuit style and a thousand or more spectators watching around the outside, pumping tunes, beer, BBQ and good times – this is always an epic event.
We will split the event into an amateur category - for those who have not done much pump track / BMX before but want a bit of fun - AND an elite category so the pump track masters can go head to head and show us how it’s done.
We’ll start with 16 riders in each category, riding 2 laps head-to-head with the winner progressing to the next round, and the next round… all the way to a 2 man (or woman) final. With an elite and amateur category it means that anyone can be part of the fun.
