Talking Indoor MX

I just thought I'd show y'all this new track in London Ontario. Someone bought the old arena and turned it into a MX track that will be open all year round but it's pretty expensive to ride there. I haven't been there yet but I plan to go this winter sometime once I learn how to ride MX. Check it out, it looks pretty good !

It looks a little cramped in there. It's awesome that you guys have a place like that to go to during the winter months. I wish we had something like that all winter.

With the kicker on the face of that jump I would need to watch more than my head! I would love to have a SX type track to play on while it is snowing. All the local tracks shut down the end of November and we start racing on sand down by the Arkansas river. I hate sand

I have a few friends back in Arizona with sand rails and they were a blast to romp around on. Why do you hate the sand?

Unless it has rained and packed in some it is very hard to do anything with. Real slow is ok and flat out you tend to plane out ok but anything in between is just too mushy. Doesn't hurt as bad when you fall though. Spent some time growing up on the coast of Oregon and everybody had a dune buggy or rail. The hill climbs were a blast to watch.

Is the sand loose enough that you could use paddle tires? I remember a friend of mine cutting out every other row of knobs on his rear tire for use on a local beach. I wonder if that would work for you.

In places it is but it isn't like dunes, there is a base. We have our first race down there the 15th. This area is pretty neat with sand pits and trails and a few hills (mounds). I swear sand can get into places you didn't know you had.
