    Whats the history of this? It seems like they would borrow some of the same grasses they use on a golf course, maybe bent grass to make the surface sufficiently smooth. Shaggy heavy grass would make the whole process painful.

    yeah, i've looked at a few soccer fields around town but they are all to bumpy to ride.
    maybe a midnight race at the golf course.
