It was a good session down at the Bamford Pump Track last night, with over 10 riders at various times. The track has dried out well and with a few recent modifications is now riding very smoothly.
Various people were attempting pump jumps and manuals, Nicky even attempting to combine the two, although conceded he’d probably end up on his ass doing the manual before he’d get it right.
Jack got some quite impressive air on his BMX, doing the double and the following drop to flat, as well as the doing the large pump jump. Irwin (pictured) had his first outing on his newly painted BMX with proper cranks and pedals, still no brake tho.
We got to see Shane’s new helmet cam gear although some technical issues prevented a live demo, but he did use his Sony camcorder for some static filming as we trained some loops, so we might see that when it finds its way of his camcorder.
After most people had gone it was just Shane, Ben, Ed and myself (Jeff), I took a few remote flash pics in the tight berm, which I was later pleased to successfully get through and over the next roller. Shane did the bank drop a couple of times. After Ed left we spent most of the time sat on our bikes on the bank just chilling and discussing riding, bike films and parts. When Irwin returned we got the lights out did some loops in the dark.
With longer, warmer evenings coming we should hopefully be able to enjoy more evenings like this one.
