Erick asks if anyone remembers the BMX tracks at Saddleback or Escape Country...
Does anyone remember the BMX tracks at Saddleback or Escape Country? Ive done some research and it seems Escape Country opened for BMX in 1973 and moved the track a year later to a downhill location.
I have talked to riders that swear they raced Escape in 1972 and Saddleback in 71 or 72. None though can provide exact dates or newspaper clippings or proof. Anyone got any or a photo that was dated BITD so we know its accurate?
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to submit something to me. Thanks.
PS I recently got a Escape Country sticker given to me someone had from the old days :)
By the time I moved to California neither BMX track was running (1982).
