The City of Onkaparinga, South Australia recently contracted TrailScapes to rebuild an existing dirt jump facility that had become an eyesore and was unsuitable for all riders.

Garry Patterson from TrailScapes took the traditional pump track and turned it on its head, designing a ‘Pumped Up’ track that is essentially a steeper and taller version of your conventional pump track, as there has been a need for a facility combining pump track and dirt jump characteristics.

The design had been sitting in a draw for a couple of years so when the opportunity arose to implement it in the historic town of Willunga in the McLaren Vale wine district, the team wasted no time in building the facility.

The track has only been opened since Monday and the positive response to both the Council and ourselves has been overwhelming and with 4 more Pumped Up Tracks in the pipeline this is the beginning of the Pump Track Revolution!
