A BMX bike track in North Yorkshire has been given an upgrade to give riders a more exciting experience.

The track in the Sutton Bank National Park Centre, near Thirsk, has been in use for many years by BMX enthusiasts and pro-cyclists.

Due to its use, however, the track had become uneven with poor irrigation to contend with, and a specialist material solution was needed to improve the entire area for safety and longevity purposes.

Aggregate Industries came to the rescue with SuperSport Track, a bespoke product designed specifically to endure wear and tear.  

Phil Walker, territory sales manager, at Aggregate Industries, said: “When planning and constructing this particular bike track upgrade, it was essential to consider factors such as proper drainage to prevent water pooling, regular maintenance, and all year-round safety.”

Working in close collaboration with the company Bike Track, the team at Aggregate Industries drew on their expertise to design and develop a unique and sustainable solution that would ensure durability, safety and a consistently smooth surface material.

Phil added: “Using ten percent recycled asphalt, its sustainable and hard-wearing durability offers a consistently smooth and speedy surface for high specification pump tracks and leisure circuits.

“In total, 36 tonnes of SuperSport Track were laid to all the lanes on the track, which weave, curve and interlink to provide a stimulating ride.”
