Will the ramps take a 215 pounder going 25+ hitting them?
Nope...I see the speeds
being a bit less than that.

Hey Rick, Nothing specific to the start or whoop-de-doos. For the start, you will be able to drop in from your tail or axle, or you can roll in over the coping. We will be adding an extension to the platform on the start ramp. There is a bit of vid on the Freshpark home page: http://freshpark.com/ A...

Paul...stoked you are coming! we can't have a race in Morro Bay without you.

You will definitely need a kicktail. The pavement is a bout a year old, pretty nice. Registration is open on the NCDSA Contest Calendar.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Events like the high jump and pole vault can be boring live, but with proper editing you can create drama and excitement.
