The distance from ramp to ramp is about 10ft long.. the board was a pain to get up since its concrete board so it was bloody heavy! the board though is close to 13ft long.
Its taken awhile to build since I have been testing it and then building and then testing again so to get it perfect.
Ive started on the quarter pipe that is cut into the bank.
I've been building it all by myself by hand so it is PERFECT!
The photos make everything look a lot smaller than everything really is.
Sweet. Wouldn't mind checking that out since I'm down Asheville way and itchin' to get the slalom bike back out on some real terrain. That wall looks pretty immaculate, I've been wanting to build a wallride with a dirt quarter into it for awhile. Even better would be two in a row, facing eachother, so you could flow them like a halfpipe.
its been hard to design and I have spent awhile designing it so you can hit it from both directions.. the board isn't to slippery... I will put a coat of bed liner spray on it I think.... but its dope so far!! I have a line where it will have a kicker to the top platform on the quarter pipe and a kicker off then into the berm and then the wall ride...
So I built up the 3 first rollers and they are smooth!! working perfectly and it was almost dry!! also leveled out the long straight away to the quarter pipe! but then last night it did a snow/rain on me and everything is swamped again... need to get another drain in the middle I think..
so far its look like everything is going to work!
Ok so after a bit of rain and snow the place was watter logged and frozen up... made it a bit hard to dig!...
I have now done quite a bit more now and is looking real good now!
Its all tying up together quite nicely!
Ok so I know this is taking time.. but perfection has no time limit... plus I have done this all by hand by myself!!
I have built a bit more... it was taking time since the ground was still wet from rain and the morning freeze .... its now almost done!! just one more part and a bit of tuning to some angles and we are good to go!
I tried this section out and it is FAST!! already!! its still soft and already able to go around the track with ease!
So ya here are some pics!
I need to have some get together so I can get the dirt packed down!
beautiful work. any tips on building a vert dirt section? I'm building a pump track in my back yard with a 6ft radius bowl in the back corner. the outer loop is complete but needs more love, then it's on to cross-overs and alt. lines.
it's a lot of fun as is but not nearly done. oh and that white thing is a quick-creted jump from the days of yore that will be moved to be a launch into the bowl.
Keep looking from every angle... build slowly and keep an open mind... oh and keep looking from every angle!
Had rain this last 2 days.. rained hardest I have ever seen in my life!! so now I have ruts and a stupid stream is running in my tight berm... stupid.. so now I have a little rock bed that I have placed in it.. water is seeping out of the ground... mud pit!! the half pipe cut in the hill is gone...
Yesterday Chris called and so I started to fix up the track from the past rainfall.... somehow! I got it dry enough to ride and so we ended up with a good day of riding! we even did some tweeking to the corners and is now even faster... playing on the wall was the highlight of the day! check it out...
