The TRA Double Cross Race

So a couple a years ago Mike Gentilcore came to me with the idea for a 2 cross trail race. (He was actually talking about it for more like ten years but who’s counting) Anyway he got serious and we got together to figure it out. I did a concept design and he started to get sponsors and it became a reality! So Chris Janis ,Kyle Keck and myself took on the build. Never building a course like this it had its challenges. Trying to figure out how people could pass and still ride it like trails and/or a dirt comp. It took about two weeks to build with we had great weather. The dirt was really easy to work with, plus the hill had the perfect grade! The only problem we ran into was keeping Mikes twin daughters sled hill in good shape but we pulled it off haha! Thanks to the sponsors for making this happen. Thanks for everyone’s help and hard work. Thanks Mike for letting me dig your yard up to make this epic event! You did it buddy.Check out the www.trabmx.com for updates about the race. Plus check out the digbmx for the photos and article about the race

Cranx New Dirt Park

So it was a mission to get this one done! It took two trips to make this happen. The first time it poured twice a day for four days in a row! Plus a tornado, which is pretty rare for the area.

So we came back determined to finish this park no matter what! Even though there was still a ton of rain James P Nutter,Kyle Keck, and myself worked like maniacs to get the park done. We built a medium and large Jumpline and small and large Pumptrack. With four days of sun we were able to finish and ride it all in.

Thanks Dale for the indoor park on the rainy days help us keep our sanity. cranx bike park

Redbull Berm Burners

Well I know this post is way over due but here it is anyway. A few weeks ago we did this sweet event for Redbull.com and it turned out great! It was at http://www.dominionriverrock.com the whole thing was such a good outdoor life fest! So the Redbull Berm Burners was a two person cat and mouse Pumptrack chase race. We had two gates at either end of the track and they dropped at the same time. If you got lapped you lose other wise it was based off of your time. The cool thing was it was open to MTB and BMX! That really made things interesting!  We are doing it again in Windom Resort upstate Ny on August 9th at the World  Cup MTB race so there will be a lot going on! Well here are some pics!

Blue Mountain Pumptrack

Well this post is a little over due,it’s been crazy here at Dirtsculpt! Going full blast since Dirt Conquers. I’m super excited about how good this Pumptrack turned out at http://www.skibluemt.com/seasonal-activities/mountain-biking/. The digging gods must have been mad at us for this one because the dirt was not made of gold! We had to make a hand held sifter to coat the entire track, one load at a time! Track turned out great though and I think all the summer campers are going to be pretty stoked, even the kids on the stryder track! Here’s a few pics to check out
