Andreu is flying in this no intro, no music, no slowmo video from FERAL Riders, and not his normal flying through the air. With speed like this, should he be racing?

Added a new video First Laps on Velosolutions Asphalt BMX Pump Track in Grenchen 6/29/2015 11:47 AM

See the construction and the first laps on the Velosolutions Asphalt BMX Pump Track in Grenchen. Powered by Swiss Cycling and Velodrome Suisse.

The national cycling federation Swiss Cycling, based in the Velodrome Suisse in Grenchen, wanted to add another training facility to their headquarters. It had to be a full asphalt BMX training track with olympic sized start tower, a Velosolutions asphalt pump track, beginners jumps, plus a sprint and exercise area, all together on 8000m².

Once again, Velosolutions couldn’t resist the challenge and took it. It turned out the biggest challenge was not the actual construction of the tracks, but the drainage of the whole area. The ground in the area is 100% clay that does not drain any water, which means that a full drainage system had to be layed out to the next creek.

More than 5000m³ of gravel and 500 tons of asphalt were shaped up within 8 weeks to become one of the biggest tracks of its kind. We started the work with only 2 workers on site, and had 16 people on site when the asphalt was brought in. Since there was no access for trucks to drive the start tower to its place, it was flown in by a Super Puma helicopter.

The BMX track has two starts. One for beginners and kids, one for the pros who are training for the world cup. Only the 8m tall start ramp is restricted to the national team, all the rest is open to public. The training track is made for 4 racers only, in order to safe some space for the pump track. It was impossible to keep the kids away from the track until the inauguration. As soon as the asphalt was layed out, the kids were on it and loving it.

Timo Pritzel, Adrien Loron and Xavier Pasamonte showed us what’s possible on the track at the inauguration in the pouring rain! When the rain got too hard, they had a quick go in the Velodrome Suisse to get rid of some leftover energy together with Gstaad-Scott’s Neko Mulally, who came to have a look at the pump track as well after the world cup in Leogang. Even big names like former road pros Cadel Evans, Toni Rominger, some famous soccer players and politicians attended the official inauguration!

Velosolutions says BIG THANKS to Swiss Cycling, Velodrome Suisse and all the amazing people in Grenchen, who made our work a lot easier with their help!

And while the kids are riding in Grenchen, Velosolutions is on a new adventure overseas…

Some might have just used Photoshop to create a photo like this, but on Friday March 20th when a solar eclipse plunged Europe into darkness, photographer Rutger Pauw teamed up with Danny MacAskill to capture the moment. They headed to Danny's homeland, the Isle of Skye in Scotland. With just one small window of opportunity to get the shot he had dreamed about, Rutger and the team spent days scouring to select the perfect location. This video gives a behind the scenes look at how they found the spot and how they managed to capture the shot.

The fastest Kiwi on the UCI World Cup series gives us an insight into what he does in between races. Racers based in the southern hemisphere can count themselves fortunate to live an endless summer. During the middle of the year, they take to the summer race tracks of Europe and North America for the UCI World Cup. Then they return home to Australia and New Zealand just before temperatures dip to enjoy more bone-dry riding. But of course, no matter the season, there's always the need to stay fit, healthy and race-sharp. With that in mind, Brook Macdonald shows us how he likes to unwind in his native Hawke's Bay, New Zealand.
