Okey, Thursday morning, I got myself together and head to East City BMX track. First when I saw the track I were gonna make the U-turn. I catch my ass up and went to the track. (Obs! Steve, sorry for my language if Nick is reading) I were suprised; the track were really good to ride. Shapes weren't high and starting hill looked more flat than hill, but enjoyed it! There is my high class photoshop work ;)
Bike back in the car and to the next track. 20min drive (pretty much that long was the way between all tracks in Auckland) and I hit the new Mountain raiders track. Starting hill looked out promising. The jumps were pretty low and long on the first straight. The second straight were terrible. Atleast there was enough space between the jumps so it didn't screw up the track. Third straight were perfect for me!! Fourth were just wan.
Next I planned to go to see the only SX track in NZ. I followed the navigator and were close to the place. I just couldn't find the track. I should see the 8meter starting hill above the houses. Local people showed me the place. You just were supposed to take the course between the houses 76 and 78 to find the track. I did find it, but it was not SX track. I had set a wrong address to my navigator and come to Papakura BMX track. But the track looked good. It look fun with plenty things I wanted to try. After couple rounds I were ready to leave. The track were just in bad condition. I wish someone would look after it.. it could be awesome!!
I packed the bike in car one more time and set the address for Puni's track (Sunset Coast) in my navigator. One hour drive and a found the track. I had been told that there is fence around the track, but I had also been told that you can go over the fence. Altought on the way back I decided to go under the gate than get over 2 fences! :) The track were nice. I would like to practice there again. It wasn't my favorite, but riding there day time would be great. Pretty much the whole track had 2 lines going. So again, something for everyone! :)
