The build continues!

We had a great build weekend! 32 hours of manual labor later we are 90% complete with the 4x track! Mike, Buck and I put in some serious time this weekend along with some help from a hand full of others! 

We are about 5 loader buckets and 3 hours of work short of completing the park! We had a nice group of neighbor hood kids out helping us Sunday, it was great to see the future of our sport lending a hand and they loved it! They did probably love the reward of riding better but hey take what you can, right? haha. 
Once the rain gardens are in place and the extra dirt that is dug out added to the back side of the starting hill and side slope of some of the jumps and berms we should be dang near done with the 4x track and can start to focus on the jump lines!

We are moving along nicely with only minor set backs from the weather. Our next build day is Saturday August 24th! 

Hope to see you out there. Remember the park is still closed to the public as it is a construction site so if you want to ride it you have to come to a build day and work so you can "test" the track! 

Keep it real,



  1. Very good works! I was wondering what equipment you used to do this? And what did you do to prevent erosion? Bonnes fĂȘtes, (from Quebec-- Excuse my English)

  2. Also, mini excavation is something I always use when building courses. thanks!

  3. wow, sorry I didn't see this... I don't get many comments. We used a 40,000lbs excavator, a mini excavator 10,000 lbs class, a D3 bulldozer, a 3 yard bucket articulating front end loader, a 11,000 lbs class tracked skid steer and a plate compactors and then lots and lots of man ours and hand tools...
