alright you guys i have seen many threads popping up for a while now asking about how to go about building a track. so i thought i might try to help with that. setting up and designing first of all what you need to do is go out and measure up your land that you have to use. once you have worked out what size block of land you have, what type of terrain/hills you have to work with, get out a peice of paper or the computer and start drawing it all out to be sort of semi scale (make sure you make it wide enough or it isnt nearly as fun when riding with mates). then once you have drawn it all out and are happy with it go out on your bike and ride it out where you have planned and make any modifictions needed. preparing for building once you have ridden it out and have a feel for where it is going, go out with a couple of cans of marking paint and mark out the boundries of the track. once you have got the track marked out if you can use a set of harrows or a light plow and run over the track so it is a bit turned up. then once again if needed (or you just cant wait ride on it again) ride around it and make a final check of everything and make sure it all flows well. when it is exactly to you liking you can either leave it as it is as a flat track and go straight to the last step, or go to the next step about building jumps. preparing and building jumps once again for this it is probably best to have some marking out paint again. go out and mark out where you want the jumps, berms and whoops. then you can either go out with shovels and alot of mates or do the easier choice and hire a bobcat (best choice) or even a dingo (still alot easier than shovels). then pile the dirt to the height of your liking and pack it down very tight (also start with down ramps first so you are not trying to get between the landing and the take off while building) final touches line the edge of the track with tires or anything with you want to or have to use. this is not really a necessity but it can make i look really good. also make sure you have a good water supply to keep the water up to your brand new track or else it will get very hard pack during summer and wont be nearly as fun to ride as a well prepared and loamy track. heres some pics of my track as you can tell i didnt put nearly as much effort into my track as i wrote in this tutorial but if you do what i wrote you will end up with a trick track. feel free to add or comment on this tutorial. i hope it helps everyone wanting to build a new track.
