We are the UK's most celebrated BMX track builders with some of the most prestigious tracks under our belts, including the 2012 Olympic racetrack in London. However, we have never forgotten how we started – building small-scale backyard pump tracks for friends and professional riders. No BMX track-building project is too small for our team, and we have built more than 180 BMX pump tracks, dirt trails and bike tracks for sports clubs, local councils, and private clients. We design and build BMX tracks for all ages, skills and abilities. Here are just some of the tracks we have built for private customers.
Constructed for a private client to incorporate a number of their favourite features this was a great opportunity for us to deliver an all-wheeled facility for the family and give them their own totally bespoke design that they can enjoy for years to come.
We really enjoyed our time here and appreciated their kind words of inspiration and thanks throughout the project.
It was a great reward for the hard work in the midst of the 2022 UK summer heatwave. Completed in just under four weeks and now being enjoyed by the family, this is another great example to add to our ever-growing portfolio of all-tarmac pump track facilities.
This Ipswich pump track was built to meet a private client's backyard ambition to create a safe and fun track for the family to enjoy. The project was completed in just one week with all construction, landscaping, drainage and surfacing taken care of by Clark & Kent Contractors.
Marco is known worldwide within the BMX community, and when he approached Clark & Kent Contractors to build his private pump track, the team knew it was an opportunity not to miss. The initial consultation and design brief required a cost-effective solution for various riding options. The site was within a confined working area that had access issues.
Marco Dell'isola is a BMX racer based in Stoke-on-Trent who has been racing BMX around the globe for more than 25 years. Marco has competed in over 20 BMX World Championship events and is a two-time World Champion on the race tracks. In addition to this are numerous British and National Championship titles.
Clark & Kent drew up and supplied 3D designs before construction started. The track uses site-won clay-based material, and mini and micro diggers were necessary due to the restricted site access. Labour-intensive handwork was necessary for much of the track construction.
Phase one of the build was to get a fully compacted riding pump track, with the second stage to include concrete surfacing on the berms and a typical limestone surface to the straights.
A four-straight design had two optional Pro straights thrown in for good measure. The track is two metres wide and includes jumps and obstacles up to two metres in height. The client called for a technically demanding layout with numerous jump options to add variety.
Upon completion, the BMX track received fantastic feedback and praise from riders and sports media. The track is featured in the worldwide-distributed Dirt MTB Magazine as an example of building a BMX track in a small and tight area.
The track has attracted many top riders, including former Elite World Champion Dylan Clayton and MTB professional rider Dan Critchlow. Pictured is former British Elite BMX Champion and Stay Strong rider Martin Murray of England. He was extremely pleased with the track and described the berm construction as second to none.
