We finally started moving dirt on the practice track this weekend (after 2 years). :welcome:

Three hard, long days of work turned our 13 acre woods into a fantastic workout on a trike.

Here's our start with a 40ft tabletop into a 6 pack rythm section. (couple views).

Here is our first downhill. This is just a small jump with a 30ft drop down on the back side. Really spooky to hit. Kind of float to the bottom.

Here is the uphill double right beside that downhill. This is around 35ft straight up!

Here is just a couple filler jumps. A small table and a single.

Here's a cool double after a sweeper. Only around 20ft but tricky because it's right on a curve. The first shot is looking back at the approach.

Now we threw in some knarly whoops, just for fun. These things are trike eaters!

Here's Brandon (3leggeddog) working on a double in the back side. Prolly 25ft or so.

And here's the last couple pics. This is just coming out of the woods back to the start. You can see the table taking shape and Brandon is up working on the 6 pack.

HUGE thanks to Todd and Brandon for all their time. High wheelies!!!

This track is well over a mile long with lots of natural terrain. I left out all the straights, sweepers and plain uphills and downhills. For those of you that have ridden the woods before, we kept the nice uphill jump (up front) for good pictures!!

11-04-2007, 08:23 PM
D - sweet man!!!! Can;t wait to tear it up. Also- on a side note - I like your winter beater - that thing has some huge tires. You need a loader bucket on the front of it. You ganna have a "track warming party" soon? I'd be in.....

Cheers man - looking good.

PS - can Brandon do any tricks on the skid steer?

Not sure what you guys got in mind - or even where the track is, but have you guys thought about getting a points league there for the summer months? Might be kind of cool.....I dunno - maybe this is just a practice track as stated?

11-05-2007, 11:12 AM
man I want to build a practice track like that! that looks killer! I have a small amount of woods but nothing compared to that!

No competitive races at this track. At least not without alot of work. It's kind of dangerous for racing, being as there are so many trees. Not to say that we won't expand into the field more later.

You are more than welcome to ride it next time your over. Matter of fact, we'll be planning a campout next year with some trail riding and MX racing thrown in.

11-05-2007, 09:00 PM
Deal, and Ill hold you guys to it! Let us ohio guys know when we can come out and give it a test run!

11-05-2007, 09:26 PM
im glad you guys finally got your dream done. looks hella fun and well set up. sorry i couldnt be around to help :(

Sounds great. We'll be back at it in the spring. It's as far as it's going to go this year. After winter the dirt should be good and packed.
