The Skelf Pump Track in Edinburgh
The Skelf Pump Track is Scotland’s 3rd Velosolutions pump track build and it sits in city centre at the base of Arthurs Seat.It was built out of 120 tonnes of Asphalt and is 160 meters long. Transforming the area the track has proved hugely popular with the locals who got the chance to rip around the track with an all star crew: Brendan Fairclough and Gaetan Vigé from the SCOTT-Velosolutions Downhill Team, joined by friends Andrew Neethling, Olly Wilkins and Duncan Ferris the crew put the new asphalt pump track through it’s paces.
There are loads of lines and they all roll mega fast, its getting your head around the fact that you’re not going to fly out the top of the berm or off the side of the track. It’s perfectly grippy with loads of flow.
We found a few little challenges but we needed a little bit more time to see what was really possible. We had a great few hours, Claudio and the Velosolutions team have done a great job.
