BLACKSBURG, S.C. -- Bob Gilbertson, owner of the Trick Tank Motocross team, announced today that in an effort to up the skill level of team riders Jake Gilbertson and Justin Hopson, he's started construction of a replica Supercross track at their practice facility in Blacksburg, S.C.
The 26-acre site, located right off of Interstate 85 between exits 104 and 102, currently has four different Arenacross and Motocross practice tracks and with the addition of a much more difficult and demanding Supercross track, it will allow the riders to hone their skills and learn what it takes to compete at the highest level in the sport.
Currently the existing tracks are open daily (weather permitting) for other experienced MX riders to practice on for a small fee and with the addition of the Supercross track, Gilbertson is expecting many more riders to take advantage of the opportunity to gain experience on the track they'll be competing on in the future.
Intermediate and Pro riders who would like to participate and practice on the tracks should call (704) 779-0191 for more information and scheduling.
Riders who sign up for practice sessions will also receive a coupon for $50 off of the price of a Trick Tank Airstand (patent pending).
