Bitch when they get there!!! Looks good on paper, but till you really space it out, how so you know. And pumping may be great, but that last jump on the second straight over the berm, Hmmmmmm, don’t knowMarch 24, 2007 at 2:05 am #42466
Guys come on this is the Olympics we are talking about, not your average national or regional. This is the kind of track you would expect the top pro riders from around the world would want to compete on. Tom Ritz builds a very good expert/pro caliber track. ItÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s only on the national/regional level that you here people bashing the way he builds tracks. Look at what supercross was like just 2 years ago to what it is now. Get with the times, the spectators want to see jumping and Ritz can build pro level jumps.March 24, 2007 at 2:08 am #42467
I’m all for pro level/ spetator jumps, just want it done right!!! I think, showcasing that level of riding is what is needed, like motocrossMarch 24, 2007 at 2:08 am #42468
And there is a lot of passing that happens over the burm jump. They had this the last 2 years at the X-mas race.March 24, 2007 at 2:09 am #42469
Again, I hope so, but given the UCI/NBL way of doing things, there is alot that can go wrongMarch 24, 2007 at 2:14 am #42470
As long as they get the consensus of the pros who cares if they are jumping sharks, and to be honest, this is one time that a water hole would make shit look cool.
BMX is burly.
We’re the future.
MAKE PEOPLE BEND TO US, NOT us bend to them.
Part of the problem with pro racing on TV is the retarded way they show it.

This race has nothing to do with NBL.March 24, 2007 at 2:20 am #42477

Well seeing as how none of us (Well maybe some of will) are going to china,I say let em go ahead and build it how THEY want it, buT WE ALL KNOW THAT our TRACKS will have rider input, and will not be one big pump race. And when the leeches come out over the next year,(you know there will be) It will be up to the older riders to “keep it real”March 24, 2007 at 2:24 am #42482
Not sarcastic at all Brett. This race is not a NBL race, itÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s a UCI race.March 24, 2007 at 2:26 am #42484
Exactly, remember NORBA, bought by the UCI, they are basically nothing now. The UCI should stick to road racing. Used to be tons of money in mountainbike racing, it’s non-existant now. BMX doesn’t need that happening with the state it’s in nowMarch 24, 2007 at 2:27 am #42485SullivanMember

pedaling is highly overratedMarch 24, 2007 at 2:29 am #42486
Mr. Ant dog there was plenty of rider input that went into this track design.March 24, 2007 at 2:32 am #42491
