Helmet cam footage of my track that OTC built.

Recommended Posts

Months ago I posted my plight to build my own track:

and my subsequent decision to have On Track Creations build it for me:

Here is some helmet cam footage that I shot recently. I haven't fancied it up yet because I want to point the camera up a few degrees for more footage.

Warning: it's about 60 meg so you'll want to right click the link below and "save target as" or definately hit pause on your player until it loads completely so it's not jerky. My brother (43 yrs old) is on the Honda CRF250X in front of me and my son (12 yrs old) is on the Yamaha YZ85.

No the tough blocks are actually bales of straw with bale covers that I bought.

A few of the turns have burms - there are two 90 degree berms and one 180 degree.

That's cool, I talked to the guy (I think Jesse?) at OTC about a year ago to ask about gettting a track built. I haven't read your other post, but he gave me an awesome price. Actually, when I read through the first page of your first post (wasted money) I was going to recommend him to you. Unfortunately my parents went back on the commitment, and I wasn't able to get it built.

How nice is that! Those guys did a great job for ya! Your son looked pretty fast, oh, and you were just staying behind him to catch footage right? :ride: Just kidding, you guys all looked good to me. What kind of acrage did it take to complete? I talked to the guys at Dirtwerkz befor about designing a track for me. The people you chose did a realy nice job. :thumbsup:

Thanks! Yeah, OTC really did a great job. Until they finished the track in April, my son had never cleared ANY gap jump whatsoever. His riding has improved dramatically since - mine too! We're still not that good - we each raced our first motoX race a couple weeks ago - my son finished 12th out of 14 and I finished second to last!!! LOL - it's all good though! :ride:

There's usually a few:

My nephew who is 8 on a KTM 50

nephew (6) on a Honda XR50

Niece (13) on a Honda XR70

Daughter (5) on a Honda XR50

The one in the video is my niece. She pretty much stays out of the way!
