“Less Talk, More Rock!” is the motto that the crew from Romania adopted to build this tasty looking pumptrack
Max Munteanu beamed over the news and says: “We’ve talked about building a pumptrack for a while now, but you know how it is: too much talking and you end up doing nothing. So we switched to the “Less Talk, More Rock!” format. After the last race of the DH season, my friend Costi decided to act, he got a crew together and they went up to the hills surrounding our wonderful city where we dug a few jumps two years ago. Back then we had to stop digging so we wouldn’t get in trouble with the local authoritities, but this time nobody cared, so it’s all good.
The boys worked hard and they got the basic shape of the pumptrack in just three days time, and in ten days it was already done and ridden. The early times of 21 seconds per lap got lower and lower and it seems that the last official record of the was 16.8 seconds.
So what’s next? Film something, of course! Luckily we have some skilled and creative people when we talk about filming around here. Our pal Mateffy just quit his job to become a full time filmer not so long ago and Prepe is is the master of technology. Lights were set up, the Blairwitch Project themed script was followed and riding action was documented until deep in the night. Fun? Duh! A memorable riding session, to say the least!
A big shout-out goes to the builders and shapers of Brasov! They know who they are!
