2020 Canada pump track rumours

Pump tracks are popping up across Canada at what seems like an accelerated pace, and that is great news for kids and the sport! With an increasingly screen addicted youth population, these facilities look to stem the negative trend of inactivity. Small, kid friendly neighbourhood tracks have shown to quickly become a hub for the community. On top of that, the UCI made Pump Track a World Championship event in 2019, so it will be interesting to see where provincial and national organizations will go with the new discipline.

Even though it is one of the closest communities to the mountains, it’ll be hard to leave!

Montgomery, Calgary - In 2019 a dedicated team of community members got a lease on a couple acres of land and built a small bike park with single track and some wood features.
