X Games Austin 2016: Behind The Design
X Games Austin was a huge success and the pros weren’t the only ones out there killing it. Our builders spent two weeks constructing a custom concrete street course, a custom concrete park course, the mega ramp, and the vert ramp. You can check out the video above to see some of this process along with some of the pros first crack at the courses. Also check out the photos below shot by Chad Foreman!
The Street Course
The street course design was developed to allow riders to easily flow throughout the course, from end to end and side to side, being able to attack most features in a single run. The park has a strong Texas vibe to it with the “Lone Star Hip” being the focal feature and symbolic element in the design. It is located in the central lower end of the park which gives the overall design a central axis that ends on the “Alamo Doorway Quarterpipe” on the opposite end. There are also three different types of native cacti used in the park that act as accents to the Texas theming. These cacti profiles were cut out of wood, hand painted, and had over 3,000 nails in them to get the desired look and texture. Check out the links below to re-watch the finals and get a better look at our course.

The Park Course
The park course design was developed to allow BMX Riders to do big flips and transfers and Skaters to do long grinds and big airs. We gave the park some big transitions, ranging from 6 feet to 12 feet tall. Typically it is not a good idea to leave a bowl course open, but we decided to design it in a way for it to not affect the flow in order to allow for one of a kind viewing into the bowl for the crowd. Check out the video links below to see the shredding that went down.
