Design your dream track!

Calling all budding trail designers and dirt riders!

Here is a chance to turn your fantasy trail design into reality.

If you ride at your local bike park and you reckon you could have come up with some better ‘berms’ and ‘rollers ’ then have a go at designing your own.

CTC, the national cycling charity’s MTB trail consultancy team has linked up with Urban Design Specialists DHUD, DMR Bikes and the Cycleshow, the UK’s number one cycling exhibition to capture your ideas and potential opportunities for the development of a pump track.

The winner will ride away on a DMR Wrath Bike the ultimate in Pump track bikes together with seeing their design turned into a professional pump track plans by the Urban designers at DHUD.

The winner will also get to meet competition judge star rider DMR’s Olly Wilkins.

"This is a great competition.  As a child I would spend hours planning out and designing jump sites.  My friends and I even made rollers, berms and jumps out of Blu Tack to test out where each obstacle sat.  I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with; the design process is often overlooked and is mega-important to all of us who ride.

This contest is a great way to showcase what your mind is capable of creating.  The biggest reward to the winner will undoubtedly be getting out and riding the track when it’s made in life-size dirt."  Olly Wilkins, DMR rider
