LTF = Lighter Then F*** (you can figure out the last word)
Pad sets were done away with about 10 years ago from what I can remember
Newer tracks have less room to pedal, more jumps, taller jumps, bigger lips compared to those from the 80's. New tracks have this wonderful invention called berms or banked turns as well. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

80's, their seemed to be "jumps" where you actually had to jump or I dont remember correctly, Whittier Narrows reminds me most 80's then the rest: sits on a slight down slope, track built for speed with plenty of flat ground a actual jumps

Having been considering doing the 31-39 Cruiser Class this season, I've either had to drive many hours to old home in Connecticut to have any kind of quality tracks. Or look on YOUTUBE. Tracks nowadays are un-real! Definitely a skilled set is racing on the gate today.
What has me be holding this off is if I wanted to be competitive I would be driving way too much, Stowe where I live now is over three-hours away from a W/E of Racing back home.
Vermont must have BMX be made more visible, outside of one lone track which contends with New York's State Championship... that's ridiculous but it has always been this way.
