are going to travel just to do a particular activity. It's something very, very different and something you don't find a lot of in this part of the country," Colson said.
PumpTrax USA out of Ohio is building three courses for riders at all different levels. Once the crew is finished in Brookings, they will head to Rio De Janeiro to build the BMX track for the Olympics.
"The goal in building the Pump Park here in Brookings is to take someone that has never done this sort of riding before and then incrementally work their way up to a more advanced level," Lead Builder, Alex Fowler said.
From Strider bikes to BMX, pedals aren't necessary here. The tracks are designed to use your body weight and wheels to get you around.
Colson hopes the Pump Park will become a destination in the region.
"I hope everybody comes out and eventually enjoys the park and the nature park as well. It's kind of a place that we're really proud of and we hope it attracts as many citizens as it does visitors," Colson said.
The Pump Park will be ready in about three weeks.
