North Saanich Freeride park test run!

We finally received quality material and went to work forming/fixing the pump track. With Kyles skill on that bobcat and the ease of raking the material, we are almost ready to open phase one. Kyle gently forming the track with his bucket! This is when you sadly realise that you are not in as good of shape as you thought, you can hear me huffing as I video taped.

It has taken a while but finally we scored some proper material and had it trucked in by Gordy Martman Excavating. Before we had to mix 60/40 sand and clay and it sucked! Either it snowed, rained or we always ran out of material. But the new material is so easy to manipulate.

Kyle Michell, Cliff Haliday and myself hammered out the track in 7 hours! We had Cliff on the Wheel Loader dropping material in key spots and Kyle working his magic with the bobcat supplied by Jim Dunlop.

Kyle getting the Bobcat ready to show off why we call him the Rockstar!

Look at that material... so nice to rake instead of clay chunks!
