n.— «Like all BMX tracks, it’s designed with a series of wave-like bumps (whoops), banked corners (burms), bumps and jumps to challenge the skills of a biker. Bill Gilles, acting president of the Newmarket BMX Club, calls one “whoop,” Spumoni Junction. “The name just popped out of my mouth one day,” he says. “I don’t think I can even spell it.”» —“Bicycle racing sweeps Canada” by Elizabeth Griffiths Globe and Mail (Toronto, Canada) Sept. 22, 1983.
