Enduro track ideas

Recommended Posts

Ive searched this topic with no luck, so i have a track in my backyard that im building some pretty sick berms on. Its on about a quarter of an acre (i know but im taking what i can get.) its to fast for big bikes. I find my self coming out of the berms guns blazin but then slamming on the brakes at the last second almost missing the berm and hitting the fence! So ive decided that im gonna slow it down with obsticles like endurocross. All i can think of is logs and rocks and a teeter toter.... Any cool ideas? Sorry for the life story haha

 What are you planning for, what is your goal in racing, if you are? balance is something good to work on, some matrix setups with logs are fun to time, and are good for working on clutch control.

I race harescrambles from time to time but other than that just rides all over the washington trails. Whats a matrix setup?

Log crossings, but with a few thrown in parallel to your direction of travel, just to mess you up if you get thrown off line.

 

Are you guessing at the 1/4 acre size?

I know it is the only thing you have, but 1/4 acre isn't much :p here is my setup for fun.  I have 3 acres, and this is just a very small part of it.

O.o talking about when I mess up from my unprofessional balance?

3 acres? It looked like i could fit that track in where i have mine... Maybe i am mistaken on how big my little field is haha. I did acquire a quite large log. Its about 5 ft long and 3 1/2ft tall. Im thinking about 1200lbs. Ill post a picture tomorow after i get of work. The thing is massive...

Enduro tracks can have anything, I like a bit of trials type stuff even. Things you should have are: rocks, logs (you got these already), roots, teeter totter (its cool ahaha) ruts, mud, big and small tires, balance beam, and tight corners throughout the track, the kind that you have to plant your foot to get around. Around here, we really incorporate natural terrain, like creek beds. They make great ledges!

Maybe If you got rid of the berm it would slow you down and be more like an enduro track ?

Ya its about a 1/4. Why do u ask?

Because 1/4 acre is about 100 x 100 feet, and REALLY tiny for a big bike track. Not that you can't have fun on it.

Nice size log, but with the dirt there it helps to just ramp, so not as hard imo, but still good practice. 

 

 were you just wanting ideas for fun, or to improve your skill for racing? did I ask that? lol.
