DIY BSX course.

Hi all

I would like to know if 9.000 square meters are enough in order to built a bsx course (for my own use) . Mind that its on a square lever piece of land on a Greek island. Any advice? Can it be hand made or you need caterpillars etc?

There is an edit button at the bottom right of each of your posts for just that reason. 9 square meters means only 27 feet long right? If so......you could maybe get 2 jumps in there with a banked turn after the first one.

It can be hand made...but you may have to get extra dirt dropped in and some help...that is a huge but fun project...

Hehe true....i am planning to return to Greece next summer for good after my Phd in the UK. I live in Athens however a bsx course in Kos island is a good excuse for a summer escape. IF this goes on...(given time) you are all invited!!!!

So you were wondering if a huge gigantic massive piece of land is enough for you to build a course on? Mmmmk.....

I really wish this house-farm was closer to Athens ...its like my second house in the countryside but its 11 hours by boat from Athens....if i lived there i could have done a lot....i really hope next summer i can get the project started.... too bad though that i will ride it alone if i ever finish it.... mtb in Greece is really not so developed...and especially in a remote Greek island....
