Building And Testing A Freeride MTB Hip Jump

Dusty Wygle and I found this potential hip jump lying around in the desert and decided we needed to do some digging to see if we could make it rideable.  Caleb Ely came along for the ride to point the camera at us and he came up with this little behind the scenes edit.  Building and testing a new jump has its challenges but the process is always rewarding when the jump works out.  A little excavation, a little shaping, some packing, some test runs, some tweaks, some guinea pigging, some boosty tables, and a scary nose-dive to finish off the evening right as the sun disappeared.
