Yeah Im aware of the strict rules, they are insane here in Cali also lol.
But I bet if you walked around both ski resorts and other ski areas in New Jersey you would find vacant land.
Here is Craigmeur today. Note all the vacant land around the ski runs.
Also all the parks now have Mtn Bike parks and races. Why cant they also hold BMX events? look in Nor Jersey alone. “High Point”, “Wawayanda”, “Allamuchy”, “Deleware Rec Area”, “Ringwood Manor” and tons of smaller parks. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=new+jersey&ie=UTF8&ll=40.97264,-74.52301&spn=0.753794,1.2854&z=10&om=1
The single biggest issue, back in the day BMX was growing fast and everyone wanted a piece of the action. Now BMX racing is smaller then ever.
So the financial motivation is limited to a few bike shops that want to sell BMX racing items. And to a few hardcore racers that want a track close to home.
Bottom line. There were one trillion things to go wrong that would prevent man from walking on the moon. But by god, they did it.
Getting a BMX track then may not be a walk in the park, but it is possible.
With broken spokes uniting the Garden State, I’m predicting a track in North Jersey in the next few years.
