Gatorback Cycle ParkRecently, while talking with one of my real estate clients, an out of state buyer.....she told me her son was into "motocross" and asked if there was a track anywhere near Gainesville? 

I told her about GATORBACK Cycle Park in Alachua, FL, just north of Gainesville.

When she told her son about it......he already knew about it because of some of the popular events that happen at GATORBACK Cycle Park each year. In operation for over 25 years, the 100 acre track is host to the MX Winter Olympics, which usually takes place during Thanksgiving week. 

You can see the full schedule of events for Gatorback Cycle Park at the Unlimited Sport MX Site.

Unlimited Sports MX is the premier website for Motocross Tracks and Racing Events throughout Florida, including Round 5 of the 37th Annual WINTER AM Series which took place at GATORBACK Cycle Park in Alachua County.

Gatorback MXWhenever I'm in the area, I always pull off the side of the road on NW 46th Avenue, and watch the races.  Finally, one Saturday - I made a stop and took out my FLIP Video Camera, took some Video footage, and posted them on my YOU TUBE Account.

My home is just 2 miles from this track and it's awesome to watch these races.

Unlimited Sports MX gives this description of GATORBACK on their site: 

"The track at Gatorback Cycle Park is mix of hard pack and sand, and has radical elevation changes with plenty of obstacles.  The facility has separate super-cross, vintage, and hare scrambles tracks.  There's plenty of pit parking with bike wash and some water outlets at the south end of the pits.  There's no electricity, so RV's should be self contained.  The park has plenty of bleachers, portable restrooms, good food concessions, and accessory vendors."

So, if you have ever wondered if the Gainesville, Florida area has a decent motocross park, now you know!

It has an awesome track, and it's called GATORBACK Cycle Park, 20525 NW 46 Avenue, Alachua, FL 32615

(Take a Peek at my Flip Video that I posted on YOU TUBE)

Gary - I have to admit, watching the "little kids" flying on those motorcycles and soaring off one of those huge hills - scares me silly!   But, I love to watch it.  The events and races there cover all ages too.   On the Thanksgiving week every year, there are huge campers and serious trailers with all the MX gear from as far away as Canada, Oregon, Arizona....it's a serious circuit.

Roland - Thanks!  I hope to be doing more Localism posts.
