Today I went out to Sugar Maple MX track. It is on the far western side of the state, about 1.5 hours from my house. There will be a D16 HS race there next year, and I had a chance to go and check it out with Brian Terry today. Chris Halverson was there with Brian as well. Chris owns Hixton riding park and it a decent rider in his own right.
The Sugar Maple track is really really good. It is a great mix of old school and new school. Big hills, lots of great turns and whoop sections as well. I really had a good time. There is a ton of woods sections all around it that will make for a great HS race as well.
Here are a few photos from the track and area.
I ran behind Brian for a couple of laps on the track and in the woods, with a helmet cam. I don’t know if it will be any good, but if I can I will put up a link to it when I find it.
Next week, mountain biking in Arkansas.
