hey i was wondering how the races went last weekend??? opening day and all…
updates??April 9, 2007 at 8:24 pm #43389
Can you get on Debbie?
or are you saying that no one is in there?
I think we need to set a chat time.April 9, 2007 at 8:35 pm #43390
i think i got on. it was a blank screen where you type in the bottom but no one was there. then i got alot of these pop up thingys where ie went nuts and took over my screen. it happned when i tried to do it in fla also… i thought i was doing somethng wrong.. who knows. maybe i am not chat savy..haha
hope you guys had a good race week. i will say this… if anyone dares complain about flem or lips on any track in nj they need to check out that orlando track…talk about lips… there were more jumps on that track than i have ever seen…. i tell you my son said if we had a track like that in nj.. had everything on it…speed, power, rhythm, jumps ( maybe a little too many jmo) and enduro for sure… lots and lots of passing in that last straight for you that have been training all winter it surely paid off….. our riders would have major skill if we had a track like that.. (minus the cross wind of course….) sarasota was a little more low key but still fun just the same… it was our first time doing a fla race and man what an experience!!
i spoke to a mom who runs concession at orlando and she said they only get about 18-20 motos on a good day so we arent so far off the mark…i assumed they had atleast 30-40 like ct tracks but i guess i was wrong.. maybe too many tracks within an hr of each other who knows…?
keep the jumps… just up the skill level…April 9, 2007 at 9:49 pm #43392
So tracks in their current state no matter where they are still draw only 20 motos.
We need to rethink what we are doing. On one hand, build the track so you can race nationals, on the other, no local kid wants to race on em.April 9, 2007 at 9:51 pm #43393
um, has anyone else experienced pop ups?April 9, 2007 at 10:42 pm #433974130forlifeMember

So what will tearing down cjbmx and rebuilding acomplish, from what i have read not a thing. but that is another thread.April 9, 2007 at 11:36 pm #43405
Cj built 20’+ doubles last year, I have not seen a huge increase in ridership.April 9, 2007 at 11:37 pm #43406
I have seen the videos from the heydays of BMX racing and the tracks did not have monster jumps on them at local races. Check those videos on the Veterans threads.April 9, 2007 at 11:43 pm #43407
our riders would have major skill if we had a track like that..
I only pull this quote to make a point, not to bust Debbie’s chops.
We have, according to the nbl state championship, about 175-200 riders. Maybe 25-30 are top level riders.
We should have 1,750 to 2,000 riders.
Build tracks that cater to the average 11-15 year old kid and you will build the sport.
Then we can have pros who can make money because there will be enough people into it to make it so people will want to sponsor BMX races.
This is hard to explain but we will show you how it is done.
stay tuned here:

sorry i didnt mean make the whole track all extreme jumps just a section or two that would challenge. you can always go back to the good old decision makers like when we first started….then everyone is happy… let the riders decide which side they are ready to take…
what i meant was to have a little bit of everything to help the riders in their skill levels… jumpin manualing whatever they need…to progress and get better…
