The sand track was created in 2011. As a trailbuilder, it's definitly my biggest pride, just because I spent hundreads of hours on it since 2011, and the result is awesome Smile It's just so fun to ride, you can't have enough of this !! Enjoy !!

La piste en sable a été créée en 2011. En tant que trailbuilder, c'est clairement ma plus grosse fierté, vu le temps que j'ai passé passé dessus. Cela se compte en centaines d'heures depuis 2011. On ne sait pas s'en lasser!! Enjoy !!
