I know there is a few threads about this but they are a couple of years old now.

I love seeing peoples private tracks, proffesionally built or amateur doesent matter.

I am in the progress of building my own track now that will be finnished this summer (i have 1.5 meter of snow now here in sweden) and it would be nice with some inspiration from others.

Maybe a bit of luck sure. A lot of hard fricking work is what does it.
It's all in how bad you want it and it doesn't have to cost loads of cash if you are willing to get your hands dirty and spend some (a lot) time to work it.
There is so much hand work to get a track like this it is crazy and if i had to do it again knowing what i know now i would have never started it. Sometimes it pays to be stupid i guess.

You don't have to own major heavy equipment either i built this entire track with this 2004 New Holland TC 30 30 HP tractor with a front loader attachment.
Of course it took me a full year to lay it out and cut it then i bought a small dozer and spent another year widening it as it was only about 12 ft wide and de-rocking the full 1.2 miles.
Hired a pro track builder to come out and build all the jumps so they would be safe but challenging and started throwing down laps.

I guess i wanted it pretty bad i'm 60...Brrapp

I do know how lucky I am. As Mr. Moto says, it's a lot of work, time, and $$$. but there's nothing like getting home from work with the boy waiting in his gear, ready to go. 15 minutes to check gas and air, get dressed, and go ride for an hour before dinner. Worth every dime, scar, and sore muscle.

They are both similar. When the moisture content is right the traction is unreal. It's a clay base, and then I till in a mixture of sawdust and sand. I shoot for 60% clay/dirt, and the rest sawdust/sand. Sawdust is cheaper so I use that more. I pay $75 for a 53' trailer full of sawdust, and till it in at Springtime. Lasts all year.

Same here, working with a old -89 Ford 5610, i will hire some better machinery when it’s time for jump building.

The track will be around 1 kilometer long and 4.5 meters wide, guessing laptimes around one and a half minute mark.

My track will be a mx track with some basic SX sections thrown in.

Very nice !!! Looks like you have a really nice area to build. With all that foliage you're cutting thru the soil must be incredible!! full of nice organic root systems to till in.
Take your time and enjoy the build it's a fantastic journey that will try your passion more than once but press on it's worth it.
Post pics of the build as you put it together.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Thanks man!

Its all clay based material, i have a river that runs a bit from my house so all the land in the area is old sea bottom with zero rocks in it.

Here is a rough scetch over how the track will be drawn on my property.

The pictures i posted earlier is from the bottom left corner om this picture where the track will run trough the forest.

Nice but trust me once you get to building you will see things you can't see in the overhead view and you will change some things.
Good you have no rocks i had nothing but rocks except for a few places.
I ripped it a foot deep to remove rocks down that deep then i rip it about 8 inches for riding.

Pretty old ones of the CA track. Haven't taken any at the new Oregon track. I will this Spring after we repair from the winter rains. Hopefully that's before late May, unlike last year. Last year sucked.

Yep it's a work in progress at all times getting better and better. Had hoped to have had a lot of ride days but two years of no monsoon has been rough.
My dozer has been broke for the past year finally got it fixed and now the tractor is down...usual can't seem to have em both running at the same time.
Got the dozer fixed 1st of Dec and while it's worthless at prepping i have started on the reservoir so i can some day install a watering system.
Getting the area bowled out and building a massive dam at the low end hope to have it done and ready for rain and snow to start filling up soon. Photo

I've been lucky enough to ride at Motomojo's place on a few occasions. It's truly incredible. I tell people all the time that it's hard to believe a place like that exists in Arizona. A lot of hard work to put that place together and keep it together!

Here's a vid from my first visit.

Hey Tumic Off topic but you're from Sweden wondering if you have heard of the rock band Bonafide?

My dad bought 37 acres, back in the 60’s. In the mid 80’s my older brothers started adding jumps, and it’s had more added in early 00’s. Nothing crazy, but it’s a lot of fun. Lots of trails too.

Thx, I built a water truck from a duce and a half. The key for my track is to lightly till the track and really soak it the night before, up to 30k gallons of water depending on the time of year. Next morning, we till that in, the another dusting of water. Finally, I always finish with a till. The final till is the main thing, it mixes in that bit of slim we are used to when you are the 1st on the track on race day. Till it deep!
