I got a call the other day to see if I would be willing to come check out a new bike park in Leysin, Switzerland and maybe build some jumps. I said, “sure.” Then I built this.
I built a 3 hit line with 2 options on each jump. A big one and a smaller one. The left or right hip at the bottom is super fun. The tranny is 8 meters long so you can boost it.
This is the first step down and I later put in a flat lip to the right of this one.
A little testing between shovel slapping. You can see the machine working on the little rythm line to the right.

I have been building a lot and want to ride more but it’s been raining almost 6 days a week. Last weekend was the opening day of the tram in Champery so we had a super fun but very muddy session on the DH bikes.
I am off to Morgins, Switzerland right now to clean up the trails and make a couple bigger stunts because Steve Romaniuk gets here on Saturday and we start filming for Kranked 8 in the middle of next week. -Ben
