He heard about dirtsculpt building the flow line at blue mountain so he gave me a call and we did a little interview check it out http://www.fattirefests.com/interview-dave-king-the-mastermind-behind-dirt-sculpt/
So it was a crazy last two weeks! Starting the build in the snow and finishing in the warmest weather of the year so far. I’m very happy with the way everything turned out! The trail is very diverse, it starts out roller and berm, wide open, to downhill single track, rock features and finally some tech berms. It’s really fun to ride at any level! Thanks to Chuck at the mountain for getting me up there! Also thanks to Chris Janis and Andy Schwartz. You killed it guys!
So now the crew is off to Brazil for XGames I’ll post more soon. Crazy to think that Yesterday I was riding mountain bikes and snowmobiles and now I’m going straight into summer weather!

Well we should have the flow trail all wrapped up by Friday!heres some pics of the week
