An enormous new skatepark has just opened in Sunderland and they've allocated half of the interior space to an indoor dirt section and the considerable outdoor space to a mountain bike skills area.
The two owners are skaters from years ago so they're having a consultation with anyone who wants to be involved in the design of the dirt section. I'm going to go down there any get involved. I just realised I'm not even sure what I would build or how I would do it. The space is huge and there's lots of potential even before they start building outside.
We currently have nothing like this Oop North and I've never ridden a pump track. Where are the best examples? I'd like to show them some pictures or videos of the best stuff around to get them interested because let's be honest, a pump track doesn't sound very thrilling in word form.
If you wanted to get someone fired up about indoor dirt riding or a compact dirt jump spot what would you show them?
