Just saw video of Jens Getteman riding in European supercross training track that seemed to have concrete whoops. You definitely don’t want to crash there. shocked

looks more like Lime like they use on BMX tracks than concrete, either way would be nasty to come off on,

Sx whoops feel like concrete if you crash in them!

Probably for the ease of maintenance, but yeah would still suck ass to crash in them.

Carlsbad has "concrete like" whoops, formed by the bikes over the years, not bulldozers.

I have thought often about how concrete whoops, jumps, and berms could be easily impregnated in recycled rubber/tires like children's play facilities often are. There is no real reason why permanent sx playgrounds a la skateparks could not be long-term facilities.

Concrete will at least not rut up. Ruts through whoops and on jump faces give me night tremors.

That's pretty crazy if they really are concrete.

|

Me personally.....I would rather deal with rutted up whopps in the dirt , then take a chance on going down on a set of concrete whoops....any day of the weeks. Concrete shouldn't have any place on a motocross track unless it's the start pad. IMHO.

Agreed, lime added to harden soil. They do this for bmx dirt jumps and berms to have the soil stick together and not break down during watering.

Heard old lacr in the 90s would mix concrete into faces

|

they use concrete whoops in Spain as the dirt gets really dry really fast with in 3/4 laps it would be like concrete with ruts so they just use concrete so save money and time i guess

One track in Bulgaria is 100% asphalt. Looks awesome!

I can't believe concrete and motocross are being used in the same sentence. What's next?? Dirt bikes that make no sound??
