The Bull Track Freeride Bike Park
is the master-plan of unforgettable Crowborough and East Sussex local, Alvar Coppard. Alvar's vision for 'The Bull' was to create a locally-built and maintained bike park, offering progressive design, from an 'any ability' race line to natural woodland setting dirt jumps and freeride features. The Bull has a thriving community and over the last few years has developed into a popular venue for race meetings, supported by the likes of Red Bull
and Monster Energy
, as well as numerous local businesses.
We've been riding, digging and promoting The Bull for a number of years, and it's very much geebeebee media's home venue, so when, at the end of 2012, The Bull went into partnership with local bike shop owner Jors Opperman of Whisper Bikes
, to develop a race team, we were pleased to come on board as team and race series sponsors.
The team consists of 18 male and female riders, from early teens to 40+, and they've been pulling in podium results across the race series in the South East. Kitted out in custom kit, and backed up at venues by the Whisper Bikes truck, the team is a mainstay at race meetings, with some of the team venturing further afield to get their adrenaline fix!

"'By riders, for riders' has always been The Bull Track's motto and the bike park has always been focused on having fun and developing the grassroots racing scene. The park's owner, Alvar Coppard and myself, owner of Whisper Bikes, took the ideas further and started 'Team Bull Track'. The team is made up of riders of all abilities and ages! We asked geebeebee media to co-sponsor the team as The Bull Track is their 'home' venue and it seemed like a perfect fit. geebeebee media have always helped promote the venue with their films and photography on race days and freeride days; their style and attitude to helping promote the park and the team goes perfectly with what we're about and we know they can produce an edit like no one else!"
