Nottingham Outlaws BMX Club is one of the UK's oldest and biggest BMX clubs in the UK having kicked off as long ago as 1987.
Club members decided to utilise a spare piece of ground on the site and commission a bespoke BMX pump track within the facility of the national bike track.
They wanted to use the pump track to hone the skills of Outlaws BMX club members, and Clark & Kent Contractors were chosen to build the track alongside the national course
The BMX pump track design included tarmacadam bends and corners, limestone straights and a variety of obstacles designed to test the skills of the user groups to the full.
Clarke & Kent undertook the various elements of the build including groundworks, specialist surfacing and professional landscaping works.
Our clients Nottingham Outlaws BMX Club were very pleased with the facility, and it has proved to be a great success with club members and visiting riders.
Both the national course and the scaled down BMX pump track were opened by Olympic BMX star Grant Hill.
Nottingham Outlaws rider Braden Bradford said: "The track now has a greater range of challenges and the new start gate is just incredible. The pump track is great fun too."
The Nottingham BMX track, on Sellars Wood Drive in Bulwell, began life in 1987, at the start of the national UK boom in BMX racing.
The club dissolved in the 1990s and the track fell into disrepair but in 2002 funding was acquired for a basic track rebuild by Clark & Kent Contractors.
Since then, the club has steadily grown and notched up Sport England Clubmark status in 2011. British Cycling qualified coaches run weekly coaching sessions for riders of all abilities, including some at international level.
