Pump track How To

If you've ever wanted to build a pump track and weren't sure how to go about it. We are here to help. We are starting a series of 'how to' guides for pump track construction. The first installment is today.

In this continuing series you can expect to find tips on pump track construction, We will offer design plans for download on this site and we will be featuring various pump tracks big and small.

We also will be dealing with tips on corner construction, roller spacing, roller heights, and anything else we think would be relevant information for people who want to dig a track of their own.
 If you have any immediate questions, feel free to contact us at dirtwest@hotmail.com


This is a gearbox bike by Zerode, it's called the G1.

The rider in this video pins it through an amazing tree-fern forest.
Mute audio suggested.

Ledgeview needs your help

The FVMBA has just posted a Public Information Meeting hosted by the city of Abbotsford on March 10. Basically they want to put houses where the trails are.

Wanna stop that from happening? Attend the meeting

Garret Reeves

Whatever this guy is selling, I'm buying. Every clip in this edit was pure gold. So many bangers... Big gaps, huge wallrides, massive 3's

I loved the wallride over the doorway, the over pedal grind to barspin, the satellite dish to wall plant, and all those nose manuals on tech objects. Go buy OSS 'Football' Now.

Brendan Fairclough

Clay Porter just dropped a couple of teaser trailers from his new film '3 Minute Gaps'. Here is my favorite rider's promo section.

This Specialized produced video of Brendan also popped up recently. Superb riding in this one, especially considering they only have half lids and xc bikes.

Miracle Dig edit

This video doesn't feature any amazing riding, or famous spots. Just awesome looking trails in a sunny ravine. The message will hit home to anyone who has lifted a shovel at a riding spot and come back to see their hard work undone.

Miracle dig edit - More Mountain Bike Videos

Oh and apparently former DH pro Tara Llanes is in town right now, if you run into her, give her some love.
