As mentioned previously we have some unfinished video business to resolve.
This video is the pump track riding from Bamford Pump Track and Joe’s Pump Track from 2010. So if you’re in need of motivation or inspiration for building or maintaining a pump track, ready for those warm light evenings heading our way, hopefully this will help; 6 minutes of berm to berm Pumptraction!
(Also, watch out of me giving pro-man Bowman a run for his money. 😉 )
Here’s a video of a compilation of all the stuff from the pump tracks that didn’t get used elsewhere from 2008. Featuring Joe’s pump track & Bamford and some dirt jumping and Jonny trying the illusive (to my camera) 360.
Riders: Joe, Jonny, Jeff, Irwin, Josh, Jack R, Matt A.
The Bamford Mountain Bike Weekend is taking place in a very limited form this year (2008), there will only be the Bamford Clough Climb. (So it’s not really the Bamford Mountain Bike Weekend as previously, just the Clough Climb.)
It will be on Saturday the 19th of July, which is the weekend after the Wharncliffe Weekender. Registration is between 3-4pm on the Recreation Ground or 4-4.30pm at the bottom of Bamford Clough, with riding between 5-7pm. There were previously two categories, Junior and Senior.
I imagine it’ll be the usual rules, whoever gets the furthest wins and you can’t put your foot down for more than 5 seconds.
They need marshals, which involves marking how far people get with red flags, and you might a get a radio too if you’re lucky.
