Trail builder and Champery resident Ben Walker never stops digging! He’s just finished an amazing looking pumptrack in Morgins, Switzerland.

Here’s what Ben told us:

“I just finished building a pumptrack for free beer all summer! There was a lack of budget so we worked out a trade.

Joel and Will, my best diggers, riding buddies and close friends also donated their time to the cause and now we have a super fun pump/jump track at the bottom of our trails in Morgins, Switzerland. The local government shut us down on the last day so there are a couple details to iron out but overall, I am very happy.

The pumptrack is in front of a bar called M3S and Rolf and Ernest are to thank for getting this project up and running. Anyone up for BBQ, beers and pumptrackin’ after a day up on the trails?”

    Sweet! We saw a big pile of earth there last week when we drove through on our way to go riding in Biel/Bienne. Looks like you got it done pretty quick. Will have to check it out this summer.

    Ok, so you built a bmx track… I see something in the background though…. oh yes – mountains. For mountain bikes.

    Smurfy, so after you’ve ridden your mountain bike in the mountains all day, you can now ride your bmx round the bmx track of an evening, Simples.

    Smurfy, come check out our trails accessed by the lift 40 meters from the pumptrack. I think they’ll be plenty “mountain” enough for you. Here is a little taste, http://dirt.mpora.com/news/dirttv-finally-2-part-3.html

    Ben, has anyone roosted that Porsche yet!?

    Morgins has arguably the most fun DH trails in the Ports Du Soleil. A rad pump track added to the mix just makes the place even sweeter!
