I think pretty much every BMX rider at some point has dreamed of having their own backyard ramp, trails or pumptrack to ride. Over the years we’ve seen a ton of wild setups from tiny little yards packed with creative ramps or pump tracks to massive backyard ramps, and even full on indoor skateparks and training facilities. During the lockdown, Adam Banton has been filling his time working on his massive backyard pump track. Here’s a video showing the build out that took about a week, along with a little riding. This looks like a ton of fun and definitely a workout! Hit play and take it all in.
“Right about the time Covid-19 was hitting Arizona I had made plans to build a massive pump track in my new backyard. Luckily the the shut down didn’t affect our backyard dream build. My wife and I wanted a blend of fun freestyle jib features to ride BMX and MTB’s on with creative lines. A project this big took some long days to get done before the spring heat settled in, even after it was ridable it needed some love. I learned a lot during this build, and no doubt have lots more to learn. The end result is a massive “fun track” that’s a good layout for future add ons and endless ideas. Stay tuned in and thanks for watching, hope you liked it” – Adam Banton
