well BMX mom The skill level has definitley improved since the 80’s, but life is not perfect and neither should a BMX track be. Theres just something thats not right about it. Just look at Trilogy, The track is smoother than the parking lot. Nice, fast, but strange! Its just that alot of these kids havent seen anything but smooth and speed and they are just scared to have to power anything. Is racing faster now? Yes but only because of the equiptment and the tracks. Thats what I mean by pussified. Dont cry if it aint perfect, everybody else has to race on the same track.
