The Pump Track in Rhayader is now nearing completion with the track being open from 21 September onwards.
The track has attracted a lot of interest from across the UK as it is going to be unique in its design with Arran Cartwright Associates designing a mirrored track and Clark and Kent delivering on quality, being the biggest in the Country.
Councillor Rhys Thomas said ‘The track, located in Rhayader, in the heart of Mid Wales is going to be epic. The track builders have done an amazing job and from Arran’s initial plans to nearing the finished product, it will attract people from near and afar. Businesses are already gearing up to support this new attraction, it can only be a positive for the town moving forward’.
Alan Samuel, of Rhayader and District Sports and Recreation Association said ‘we have been working with Mogwai Media to produce an iconic brand for the facility. We wanted our brand to mirror the aspirations we have of being the best pump track in the Country. Therefore, our Pump Track Wales brand has been launched today.’
The launch of Pump Track Wales is the first stepping stone to the full launch on 21 September where there will be an official opening along with demonstrations from pro-riders and coaching sessions for those starting out. More detail will follow on our website for the launch at pumptrackwales.co.uk.
