How to Make a Bmx Dirt Ramp

BMX racing is a most famous sport. These racing can be performed either on clean surface or on dirt. For dirt BMX racing ramp is needed and most preferably the ramps need to be without stones. Therefore proper planning of dirt ramps is needed. The place to build the ramp needs to be flat with good dirt and less shrubs and stones. For the proper ramp one need spade type shovel and one flat edge shovel.

After choosing proper land one has to plan the direction of the ramp. Then make heaps of dirt where racer wants to jump. According to this now shape the jump and it need to be nice, round, curved without flat spot. Till one get good transaction keep curving. The jump must be smooth and without rubble. One has to concentrate on take off and landing. Landing need to be twice than take off.

To avoid running out of space the jump must not be big in middle of the spot. For this determine the jump direction, stating point and the distance up to which it need to be straight. Jumps must be obstacle free and therefore one need to plan the jumps. No need to cut down the trees as they are helpful in structural base support. While jumping over the trees one has to take off or land the leaps next to the tree itself.

After this general planning of the direction the racer need to measure the distance and according to this decide where to start the jump. Beginners need to plan for at least 4 feet high jump. This is the ideal distance for beginners. Though the jump is just of 4 feet; amount of the dirt needed is more and therefore before going for the jump one need to pile up dirt as much as possible. While building up this heap of dirt try to keep leaves and branches out. Leaves will prevent the dirt from being hard and as per the time leaves will decompose and jump will fall apart.

Along with the leaves and branches, stones also must not be there in the pile. Though they are small but in the rain they will harden in the dirt and can hurt rider. After this the necessary step is to pack the dirt. To pack the dirt one need to walk on the heap of the dirt. This will give the nice and hard ramp for BMX rides. Now one can shape the dirt by spanking the sides of jump with the help of back of the shovels.

At this moment one can shape up the leaps for take off. The jump need to be round, curved without flat spots. For these jumps flat edge shovels will help. Regular performance will improve the jumps or leap. While taking jump one has to measure the distance first and then plan for the jumps. To shape the jump one has to carefully pack it down by smacking it with back of the shovel.
