i was there on monday, its awesome ive been there about 4 times the whoops are changed though because on monday me and my friends rented the track and branden jessman was there, and kody molitor, and some other pros for a RACER X photoshoot. we got to be in it! but the whoops might be a little hard for you, or this one corner was a rutty and muddy in there, but other than that the track is awesome!

have fun!

I used to work at Tuf and the owner of Tuf owns this track as well. Its a pretty cool track and the best one I know of in IL that you can ride in a thunderstorm or when its 30 degrees out!

I haven't been there in a little while, but I heard they changed it up a little bit. Its a good track to learn on when it comes to more technical riding for sure 😢

yamaha329, thats cool that you got to ride with those guys. They ride for the Tuf arenacross team and I actually used to work with Kody at tuf. Hes a super cool kid and not your typical "I'm too cool" A rider.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Wow, the track was a bit too technical for me. I ended up singleing everything. Not very good at jumping rythmn sections and definately need to know how to jump there. I'll have to try one of the classes taught there. Anyway I'll be at Sunset this weekend to hopefully get my confidence back.
