The art of building BMX dirt jumps

With the approval of the rebuild of Meldrum Bar. Eichler Park getting a new steward, and some love. I thought this video from Red Bull seemed appropriate.

New Zealand BMX riders show that skill and creativity goes into both building and riding dirt jumps. Dirt jumps are the foundation of BMX riding. It’s where it all began, with kids sculpting crude take-offs just to get a taste of almighty airtime. That tradition has carried on, only now riders are digging deep in the woods and creating intricate and beautiful trails on a mammoth scale.

As you can see in the video above, it doesn’t matter if it’s in BMX hotspots in the U.S. like Pennsylvania or Austin, Texas, or if it’s halfway across the world in New Zealand — the passion for dirt riding is strong everywhere.
