It doesn’t matter if you are looking for rebuilding your local BMX track, or wishing to construct an Olympic size training facility, we got you covered. No job is too small or too big for EliteTrax. We can design and build a BMX track that meets your needs.
An international standard BMX track fulfills all the International Cycling Union (UCI) requirements for international events and is also tailored for local riders.
EliteTrax develops a track design that is customized for these specific needs. For development purposes, it is important to build a challenging, yet safe track where riders can develop their skills. In many cases, a divided straightaway offering an “Elite section” will cater for the needs of both younger riders as well as elite level riders.
Furthermore, EliteTrax understand the importance of having the track rideable all the time, not just when the weather is favorable. We choose material very carefully, designing the drainage that works and we are the most experienced track builder when it comes to applying soil stabilizers (Soiltac) to create a smooth rigid track surface.
The BMX Supercross track is the new type of BMX tracks and is considered the standard for top-level BMX racing, catering to the very best riders in the world.
A BMX Supercross track is more challenging, featuring bigger and more technical design elements. These tracks also feature a large start ramp, which enables riders to gain necessary speed. BMX Supercross tracks are the standard for the Olympic Games, BMX World Championships and the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.
To build a SX track is not as easy as just adding an 8 meter start ramp to your local track. The sheer speed and technique of top level athletes changes the trajectory and design of obstacles radically. No one has more experience than EliteTrax to create the perfect Supercross track.
The BMX SX Combo track, introduced by EliteTrax during the 2010 UCI BMX World Championships in South Africa, combines the highly technical BMX Supercross track with a traditional style BMX track. It features two start ramps, an SX ramp, plus a “Challenge” ramp, which is now standard for UCI BMX World Championships.
To merge a “traditional” type track with a Supercross track takes knowledge and experience. In many cases the track may end not “flowing” correctly due to lack of experience. And trust us – the riders will let you know.
Pump Tracks are smaller BMX-style tracks that provide exercise, safety, and enjoyment for riders of all ages and skill levels. These tracks are rapidly growing in popularity and are frequently built in parks, campgrounds, or backyards. The EliteTrax sister company, PumpTrax USA, offers turn-key standard builds as well as custom-designed tracks to meet any client's needs. Please visit the PumpTraxUsa website for more information.
Major events such as the Olympic Games, Youth Olympic Games and other regional/continental events require a longer planning phase and more in-depth consultation and design. The experience and services of EliteTrax are available during all stages of a project, including multiple meetings, site visits and design renderings (CAD) as needed. Construction is commonly divided into several construction phases over a longer time period.
EliteTrax is currently in involved in the 2014 Youth Olympic Games (Nanjing, China), 2015 Pan Am Games (Toronto, CAN) and the 2016 Olympic Games (Rio De Janeiro, Brasil)
The main feature on a BMX Supercross track is the start ramp and has now become the standard for high-level international BMX racing.
The SX start ramp is 8 meters high, 10 meters wide with a 28° sloping angle. This ramp allows the top elite riders to reach a top speed of over 60 km/h.
EliteTrax is able to offer a full turn-key solution for your start ramp needs. EliteTrax works closely with professional manufacturers to offer a metal start ramp to UCI Specifications. Our start ramp consists of two parts:
• Regular scaffolding components
• Custom built top deck with non-slippery surface (metal or wood)
A scaffold solution assures that it meets the local build codes and standards. It’s easy to transport and it can be mounted in just a weeks time. EliteTrax can offer worldwide shipment and setup of the ramp at an affordable prize.
Please contact EliteTrax for a detailed quote.
Although any local scaffold construction company can build a ramp, it is extremely important to get the angles, transitions and surface correct. We’ve seen way too many ramps built almost right, but they do not conform to the Supercross standard for ramps. EliteTrax can offer onsite consultancy and drawings if you wish to construct your ramp locally.
The International Cycling Union (UCI) has also introduced a 5 meter high standardized start ramp for traditional BMX tracks, which will be used for Challenge level competitions at World Championships. EliteTrax can offer a turnkey solution for the traditional BMX start ramp.
