Set in secluded green space in the heart of Edinburgh's UNESCO world heritage site listed Old Town, the world class all weather pump track designed and built by Velosolutions for Skelf Bike Park is the host for the first UK qualifier of the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships in 2022. Just a stones throw from central Edinburgh, the pump track sits at the bottom of the huge volcanic monument, Arthur’s Seat. The 160m track is compact with lots of interconnecting sections and transfer lines, providing lots of challenging opportunities.
