Let me give some background on “Bump and Run” before you all want to murder me.

I get requests for a flat track all the time. People want to have wheelie contests, I guess. That’s lame if you ask me, so I did the next closest thing.

Track is basically a bunch of straights with a couple bumps and walls to break them up. Then the end has a fun little jump/rhythm section. Seems easy, but those straights are actually pretty tough to nail quickly.

Please let me know how you guys like this track.


#3

It’s pretty damned evil. The completely flat design running up to the speed checks is completely without reference points and if you break when you see it, it’s too late.
You’re a big bully!


#4

Get up on your backwheel for once and the braking will be easier :grinning:

Or just look at Bragstad and copy him. Easy :slight_smile:


#5

i agree @THR_Birdshaw :joy: really cruel, we have to count in our heads how long it takes to get to the wall to get ready and brake​:sob:


#6

May not be easy to notice, but the trees on the background do help a bit to see when to break.


#7

Boy, it’s good to be back! :smiley:


#8

I don’t mind it. Gives me a good opportunity to practice my wheelie game! :yum:


#9

Svedsgard took your wheelie contest very literally. :joy:

#20

He’s a champ. Doin great. :sunglasses:

You know who’s not doing good? Me. These speed checks are killing my times. Then I get the speed checks right and I mess up the rhythm section. Bump and run is probably my least favorite track in months. Not because it’s a bad track. Just because I suck at it.
