outside of New Vienna, Ohio is a recently built MX Park
that features many different areas to ride and practice
your racing or jumping skills. The track features
3 groomed MX tracks, a high-speed flat track
for the oval racing types, a dirt drag strip, a Peewee
track and a small hare scramble course that loops
through fields, woods and streams. I heard about it
through other riders and since it was only 30 miles
from my house I thought I'd try it out.
really like the selection of tracks to choose from.
The owners who build and groom the track have made
the tracks a good balance between motorcycle and
ATV riding abilities. New Vienna is very well kept
and the water truck usually makes several appearances
a day so there's never a big dust problem to worry
about. I haven't been there when it's raining, (I
hate mud), but with the type of dirt there I imagine
it's pretty greasy when water is added to the mix.
also a hare scrambles course through the wooded
area in the back of the park that you can practice
your tree-dodging skills on or take the less experienced
rider for cruising through the woods on some of
the slower, non-track areas.
wouldn't recommend New Vienna for the 4x4 or casual
woods rider types. My opinion is about 90% of the
layout is set up for the racer, or fast trail rider,
that is looking for some practice time but not wanting
to wait for their local track's practice schedule.
for me, I really enjoy the people who work there,
the track variety and the many rhythm sections to
practice my double jumping skills.
if you are looking for some MX track practice and
live in the southwest Ohio area, New Vienna may
be the place for you.
