CycloPark All Terrain Track 1 - Racing & Time Trial Thread

    This thread will be used for recording and tracking time trial and race results on the All Terrain Track 1 at CycloPark.


    Track: CycloPark All Terrain Track 1

    Location: CycloPark, The Tollgate, Wrotham Rd, Istead Rise, Kent DA11 7NP

    Country: England

    Video of Track:


    Description:
    This is a relatively short downhill off road stretch of BMX track.

    It involves 8 medium u-turns as you make your way down the hill.

    Each turn has a decent amount of side wall elevation, so you need to keep your speed up in order to maintain enough momentum to make it around.

    This track is very narrow, so it doesn't leave a lot of room for error.

    It's quite a rough track with it's fair share of larger rocks and long grass to keep you on your toes, particularly on the edges if you veer away from the centre. This means the track requires strong concentration and focus the entire way down.

    Results:

    Click for direct Google Drive link in case the spreadsheet embed below fails for any reason.






    We'll aim to keep recording scores for each track at all events and add the results to some form of tracker, whether it's a spreadsheet or web app.

    For now we're using google sheets, if anyone knows of any good 3rd party systems for keeping track of results like this then let me know.


    The idea is we'll be able to create threads/entries in the system for various tracks around the world and record the times at each event so you can effectively compete against other riders over the course of a season even if you can't make it to compete on the same day.

    Feel free to create your own thread for tracks near you.
    Be sure to note what board everyone uses for their lap time, whether it's an Evolve, Boosted, Trampa or anything else so that we can separate out the results for the league tables and make fair comparisons to riders on similar boards.

    Upload photos, embed video, add a description and keep the first post updated with results from each time trial session.

    Any ideas or suggestions for how to improve the system are welcome.

    Nice one, if anyone has any HQ Drone footage can you see if you managed to get an arial shot of the track?

    I was thinking if we could get a decent arial photo we could overlay the course path for the part we race along using Photoshop.

    Dissappointed that I missed this event - but was already due to be riding in Spain. Looks like a great day.

    Was a good one Kev, hopefully see you at the next one :thumbsup:

    Make sure you come with all the pads you can think of, it can be rough bailing on those BMX tracks.
