    Monday night that last jump line was still there, but they were all gone tonight.

    I swept off the beginner track with the broom Clay left because it was getting quite loose and "dusty", but it could really use some water as well.
    650B has arrived!

    You are correct all the orginal stuff has been or will be removed but new jumps will be put in place. The pump tracks are only phase one! Phase two shall begin on 5/19 and there will be more jumps then were there before as we will actully not waste any space, there will be very little flat areas in the bike park.

    That reminds me, next build day/weekend is going to be 5/19 probably start in the AM some time more details to come

    On the 8th day God gave us pump and we rode!

    I have no idea were to start!
    I just want to thank everyone that showed up to help build! We had a great turn out despite the on and off rain all day. I believe we had 12 people that showed up.
    I want to give a huge shout out to Tim Wegner and Mike Mullany for bringing their machinery and operating it all day long for us! We moved a ton of dirt and made a lot of awesome track!
    I want to thank QBP for allowing so many of their employees to come out and help build.
    I want to think Josh Abrahamson for bringing a grill and sausages.
    I want to thank Clay Haglund for driving all the way up from Mankato to help out and donating a push broom to the cause! Shout out to Adam Buck for sending the beautiful Red Bull ladies our way for a nice mid afternoon pick-me-up!
    I also want to thank Thor and Nick for all their attention to detail and really making the two completed tracks super dialed in!
    Over all it was a huge success. We dialed the beginner pump track, completed the second pump tack, which is a replica of the Whistler Crankworx '10 and got the 3rd pump track, a replica of sea otter '09 roughted in!
    Today I will be back out there to run some shovels around 1-130ish. I know a few people said they would come back out. I will send a text to everyone I know. Other wise spread the word. It is suppose to be sunny till dinner time and then get cloudy and rain starting after sun set! So the tracks should be in great shape for riding! Thanks again to everyone that showed up and brought tools and I hope to see you out there today and all summer enjoying the bike park! There is nothing like this in the Metro, MN or even the midwest that I am aware of!

    It was great meeting you guys. Really impressed with QBP and their commitment to area riding with the help of several of their employees. Hope to ride with you guys more in the future.

    Where are the pictures showing the more complete intermediate track? That one was basically done when I left at 4. I thought of taking another photo with my cell before leaving but I figured someone with a better camera would have captured it.

    The pump tracks are shaping up unbelievably well. The easiest one is very well packed and worked in.

    The middle of the three is built and packed pretty well and already rides well. This track is soooo cool with the options you can do once you know what you are doing. If you have ever seen a pump track video and thought it would be cool to have one like that... this one is that good.

    Track 3, the big dog, is coming together too. It's big and should be really fun once a rider dials in their pump track mojo.

    So, hats off to Chance for taking the effort and shooting big with the city on this park. Also, thanks to everyone who has helped out so far. A few have really stepped up and it's awesome to see. Mike and Tim with big equipment, the guys that worked all morning today in the wind and rain and were still there after most of us had to leave.

    There is no Leb Mafia... as far as you know.

    I picked up a water tank today and have 200 gallons loaded on the back of my pickup. I am certain that having water available will guarntee that we will get rain!!
