Welcome to "the Superspeedway of Motocross!" When Monster Mountain, built by Mark Barnett and Greg Cole, opened in 2000, it instantly gained a reputation as one of the most spectacular tracks in the Southeast. The big rolling hills and long straightaways were unlike anything else around. I grew up racing here, from 80s up to 450s, and considered it my favorite track. Over the years the track has seen some changes, but this version is based on what I consider to be the classic Monster Mountain layout from the early 2000s.

I hope you enjoy throwing down on this track. Somehow I think I managed to spend even more time on this than I did on Sweetwater in an effort to create an authentic, realistic, and fun interpretation of this amazing track. This is dedicated to the memory of Chase Borders #910, a long time familiar face at Monster Mountain.

Huge shoutout to TM_Infidel at TMFR for supporting this track, and Wahlamt for hosting the race this coming Thursday.

Huge thanks to Zoa Cross and MotoChasin for the preview video.

No worries. I'm sure the current layout would be a lot of fun as well, but this is the version I'm most familiar with.

Best track ever, and I mean this is the best track ever in this game that I have played. It feels perfect. I don't think a track has captured the realistic feel ever before the way this one does. There are some legendary tracks in this game, but this track is the most realistic thing I've ever played on in the game. I know it's just my opinion and a lot of people will disagree, and that's okay. I just feel like this track captures exactly how this game is supposed to work.

I'm flattered. That's what I was hoping for, so I'm glad you thought it worked.

BTW, thanks to everyone who came out for the race hosted by Storken. I'm curious how you think the track works for racing. There were a few people in the server commenting on the traction as usual. What about the choice of lines, passing opportunities, etc.?

Hands down great work on decals and the environment! I love the roughness, its subtle but always on the right place.

Thanks for all the tips, Race! I look forward to trying flipping the overlay/decals around on the next one.

Kellen did a track walk on the "prepped" version and talked a lot about erode which is cool. Hopefully we'll see more and more people running erode on their servers.

Yes Please! ^
I love this track but once again can't find anyone running it on a server with erode. Why don't people want erode on? Unless there are 20+ riders there isn't any reason not to run erode. It adds so much to the game to have to adjust lines every lap or two.

When online erode first came out people were labeling it on the server page so you could tell what track had erode on. That was dope. I dug that.
