General Discussion / Why is this forum dead ??

Why has this forum completely died ?? BMXUltra is the best bmx site in Aus in my opinion, and it would be good for the forum to also generate traffic and bmx discussion !!

People saying that their kids need to be challenged with their riding therefore build these style of tracks need to get a clue. Take a cue from where this sport originates. Motocross and Supercross. You don't find National level supercross sections on club motocross tracks, and for good reason.  Why BMX track designers feel the need to do this infuriates me. Sorry to hear you guys refused to race your local state titles due to the dangers involved in riding that track. That is no good for anyone. Hearing that there were a lot of injuries as well has got to open a few peoples eyes and make them realise something isn't right.

With all the coverage BMX gets worldwide these days, why aren't people wanting to build tracks similar to the USA BMX national tracks. All those tracks have looked amazing so far this year. Super flowy, fast, and that equals fun. Heaps of different lines through every section. One line through a section, ie, jump or die, is no good for anyone. Leave that stuff where it belongs, on national level BMX Supercross tracks. Once you are at that level, you will get more than enough chance to ride that stuff. Or go build some dirt jumps old school style, and jump them.

Great thread. Elite men final will be stacked and absolutely world class. Gotta say, Matt Juster is looking unreal. He's my pick at the moment and will really make a name for himself. Along with Frieswyk who will be defending his national number 1. Going off the Nerang nationals, a couple of QLD'ers in the 15 boys class will be right up there, in Josh Boyton and Dylan Scruton.

Does anyone know if we will get any live racing from Perth next weekend ??

Anyone else got any pics for new number 1 plate holders ??

Great posts guys. This goes to the heart of why this thread was started in the first place. Some more first hand examples of bad track design doing more harm than good, which is never good to hear about. Totally agree with your points about the US tracks, with all the tracks on their national circuit being very fast and flowing. The sport is in such a great spot at the moment, being a high profile Olympic sport and having very high rider counts at every race meet. We don't need to be forcing people out of the sport through injury, or scaring people away from the sport because of the possible injuries. Big, steep and deep jumps have their place, and that is on a Supercross track. Leave those obstacles away from club tracks, and focus on building a good, fast flowing, fun track to ride, and the club will thrive. Maybe there should be less Pro's designing tracks, especially when the track is aimed at only challenging pro level riders ??

Definitely a fair point big block. Isn't a high speed track, Watching from the sidelines makes it look even worse, not sure why.

So, what did everyone think of the revised Beenleigh track?? I personally think it was great. Was a good shootout round. Will be interesting to see how the new seal that the track has on it holds up on a public track. I hope it holds up well cos the track today was super smooth and fun. Hope it stays that way. Hearing rumours of several other tracks looking at also sealing their track surfaces. If it works and doesn't break down, a lot less maintenance would be required, and tracks would stay pretty much perfect year round. I hear that it does shred you like sandpaper if you crash on it, but that seems to be the only downside.

Very cool idea to add something like this to the site. Lets see everyone's rides. Cool bike to kick it off too. Interesting to see someone running old school chromo frame and flats, but then going with carbon cranks. Is carbon going to make a big showing this year with all the carbon frames that are slowly becoming available as 2014 kicks off??

Definitely great training tools. I had a play with the freelap last week and it was great to see where you were at and to push yourself to continue to improve your times. From timing the gate start to the base of the hill to sprinting the first two straights, they can definitely take your training to the next level.

There are some on Facebook I think. Track is so good. Flows super nice and still allows for lots of different lines and combo's through the last straight. They fixed the second straight as well, and the surface is 100 times better that what it was. Gonna be a good shootout round.
