I didn't think it was bad, but it could be because it was just something new and different to ride. Im not sure how it will be for the long run.

The track seems very short now though with the whole starting section cut out. And with 50+ bikes on the track at one time there were people everywhere. Also, the uphill whoops were brutal!

I havn't seen that many people at a practice in a long time.

2 A/B Motos

2 Novice Motos

2 Mini Motos

1 Quad Moto

Meant about 2 hours of wait time in between riding! I dont understand why they even allow quads there. Quad riders always complain that they arnt allowed at the tracks and then only what 10 of them show up? It just adds extra wait time for all the other motos and they blast aways all the good lines...

I was having fun till I had a get off and took a handlebar to the groin. I could not believe I was so tired after just a 20 min. moto. Hardly any spots on the track to rest and the whoops where fun but sucked the life out of you. I have some video I'll post it this week sometime.

The whoop sections did suck the life out of you, so I guess it was ok that the

laps were short.

Overall I think the track was decent, it was just hard to get a

clean lap in with so many people going everywhere.

Was it 20 min. motos they were doing?

If so, I'm glad I made to the checkers the 3x I got out there.

My kid went, said it flowed very poorly and all the lines ended up crossing into one so if you hit a jump everyone else wanted to land in the same spot regardless of where they took off from. He also complained about having to brake for jumps as they were in the ends of the straights, and the far too short track length was mentioned too.

The guys running it asked him how he liked it and he told them exactly what he thought. They said it was the riders who were screwing it up! Haha!

The waits were crazy too, how many kids were even there, I think he saaid like 2!!! He ended up leaving after a few motos and meeting us a our private track. It wasn't about being a "too new and having to get used to it" layout. He went specifically for something new and won't be back till they change it again!

LOL, I thought 698 might have a better idea for a camera angle. I was thinking of purchasing a chest mount for the GoPro.

Its weird but for some reason the track looks shorter?

The big uphill jump (now big downhill jump) has a single in front of it. Was anybody jumping that single and using the big jump for landing?

Looks like that single (wall) is there to slow people down.

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
