The trail builders behind classic trails such as the Cwmcarn Freeride Loop, Llandegla’s much loved pump track and the strikingly different Lee Quarry routes are looking for some new blood to join them. Back On Track are looking to add a new Designer and Trail Builders to their team, so if you fancy a job that’s going involve a lot more than chucking a shovel about and want to work with some of the best riders and builders in the business this could be the opportunity of a lifetime…
