    I'm excited about this prospect, my kids are just getting into BMX now. I see a temporary website at http://www.bellinghambmx.com/, any information about a potential timeline for opening? Thanks for the info Arnbo.
     
  5. I miss the one that used to be at civic field. Lots of fun there over the years and open to the public.

    Does anyone else want to go watch RAD now?

    Growing up, in the summer we would watch that movie, than go down to the woods behind some houses and we had a track. Built our own starting gate and the owner of the land brought back a tractor and built some pretty good sized jumps. The good old days.

    I might have to stop by Sea Tac or Sumner to watch some BMX soon

    I'll believe it when it actually works.
    The track at Civic Field didn't last long because we couldn't get anyone to run it. I helped build that track.

    Track in Everett has gone up and down over the years. Got the parks dept running it now. It's getting a facelift as we speak. Pics were just posted. McCollumn Park BMX. So it's going well I guess. They had the redline qualifier there a couple years ago.

    Seatac is going well. River Valley always does well. It has a following. Monty C was helping run the track up in Langley BC. I have a hard time getting up there anymore tho. Abbotsford went UCI, but they were still accepting some of us ABA guys. OF course the Olympics it strictly UCI based.

    As for me racing. I've only been out for a couple years. I'll probably get up there and check it out. Still have both my race bikes. Supercross, thanks Bill. Plus the kids kinda got into it a couple years back. Maybe time to try again and see if my ankle can handle it. :roll:
