So this year Texas Toast was so good! It was in a new location with tons of room to build a lot more stuff! The rest of the crew was on Redbull Dreamline so Gilly ,Will Blount, and myself got to build it. Gilly was on the crew for the first one and Will was on the last two but this was the first time for me! The sweet thing about this build was we were able to build what ever we wanted no plans just whatever made for the most fun! The only problem was rattle snakes ,scorpions, and crazy heat 96 degrees. But even with all that it was so fun! Thanks Gilly and Will for kickin ass and Odyssey for putting on such a core event! Built by riders for riders. Congrats to Mike Hucker Clark ,Anthony Napolitan , and Chris Doyle Here are the two edits from ride bmxdirt qualifier

Wow I can't believe how good the event turned out RIde bmx called it THE MOST UNIQUE DIRT EVENT IN BMX – TRABMX DOUBLECROSS
So proud of everyone on the evolved and everyone who rode and made bmx race history!!! Check out the article and pics on Ride Bmx
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
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
This year has been a crazy one nonstop jobs back to back! But I'm very grateful to be able to have my dream job. So we are In upstate Ny in Syracuse building a bike park for cranx.com. So we just finished up Carbondale Co northface bike park. It was a month long job. It turned out great real fun to ride! It has 2 Pumptracks , 3 jumplines , cross country loop with a big climb and a beginner and expert down line. We had a great crew James P Nutter Gilly Will Blount Shawn Shoener and James Hawkins. Thanks guys for the hard work. Shawn did all the wood cravings and James built and designed the structures. The town paper did a write up about the park as well.http://www.postindependent.com/news/12577114-113/park-bike-town-carbondale. Well here is some pics of the park hope you enjoy
So the 2nd round of Bermburners went off last weekend in Windham ny at the MTB World Cup! There was 60 riders and a ton of fans. Congrats to Victor Behm for his second win! Thanks to James P Nutter and Ekim King for doing a great job on the coarse. Here are some pics and the Redbull post thanks for doing a great event!

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!
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
For anyone that has not seen the Dirtconquers highlight vid it's on http://www.redbull.com/us/en/bike/stories/1331646195638/watch-red-bull-dirt-conquers-bmx-highlights It's a great edit you can see the course and all the new features really good. This is one of my proudest creations! Thanks again Gilly,Clint ,Nutter,Will,Oscar, and Daniel. Still the roughest build I ever did !
So as soon as I got back from Mexico had to head back down to finish Rockburn Skills Park in Maryland. I started the rebuild and some changes about a month ago but snow and rain didn't let up. So had to wait little for it to dry out to get some shaping done. I made some changes to the Pumptrack and added some new lines. Spent most of the time fixing the jumpline fatting up the table tops and giving it some more flow. Here's some pics
So one of craziest comps of the year is in the history books! Thanks to Redbull for having this event! It's one of the hardest builds for crew and I but we still come back for more. I couldn't of done it with out Gilly ,Clint ,Nutter ,Will , Oscar , and Daniel thanks so much for the insane work!
Congrats to Kevin Peraza for the win And Daniel Sandoval for second and Drew Bezanson for thrid
So here we are again in Guadalajara Mexico for the second Redbull Dirtconquers! All though the course was left from last year it was just as much of a mission to fix. We also added six new features to the bowl. We had about 14 days to add the new stuff and recoat all off the original stuff. Not to mention that we are really working in the dust bowl and machinery problems it was not an easy task. So we just work 16 hours days to finish. Working all day and into the night around 130am. But it's all worth it after watching everyone in practice today! It was insane! All so this year the event will have a live feed onRedbull.com/dirtconquerslive Here is some pics of the new features
So redbull contacted me in the summer and asked if I could build some jumps with a loop in it. I said sure. Then I was thinking how and where! Well the where was easy TRA owner Mike Gentilcore said we could use his land! Now how are we going to build this thing and figure out the speed going in and coming out to hit a jump. Also could you even hit a jump coming right out of a loop. So Chris Janis, Shawn Sheoner, and myself figured it out. It wasn't easy! Here's some build pics enjoy!
So the crew and I just got done with a bike park in Basalt Colorado.It turned out really good super fun to ride!http://pumptraxusa.com contracted the job to Dirtsculpt to build and design this park.It was a three week build with unseasonal weather lots of rain but we still pulled it off.The park consist of a down hill berm and jump line that continues into a small jump line. It then connects to the Pumptrack if you want to make the longest run.You can turn out of any line if you just want to hit just one of the lines at a time.Here is some pics and a Ion camera vid coming soon.
