Here it is: I built the whole thing myself in my spare time (over the past two months), and three of us installed it this weekend. Still a little left to do -- ran out of gas due to a leaky hose, grrrr....
Here's a link to a video of it running: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=60707530

Nice work. Nice to see people putting their skills to work for the benefit of others. Cake AND pie for you!

That's awesome! It looks like a 20 stall gate, correct?

Your gate looks good. Even AA pros will have trouble flexing that one!
8 riders is the maximum.
What type of release mechanism are you using?
When we raced in Chandler, AZ, a few guys would take turns lifting the gate by hand using a larger bar that slid into a pocket welded to one edge. Now that is dedication to the sport!
