Dirt Jump Track – Kråkberget

There is a dirt jump track inside Kråkberget, a military training ground and a place where the local moto enduro club have their practice. This dirt jump track has been there for years. And on and off, there seems to be people riding and working on it. And sometimes nothing happens for a long time. Someone started working on jumps there last summer.

There are some interesting stuff there, but the place needs a lot of work. I have had some thoughts about fixing things. Will see what happens this summer when i have a bit more time. Nice place anyway, and pretty close to where i live. Nice to have somewhere to go with my dirt jump bike when i just want to ride and improve my skills.

One thing that would have been cool would be to build a pump track thing there too. If thats possible. But thats a lot of work for one person.


A short trials session

First day since i started riding again a few weeks ago where it wasn’t fun being out. I guess the biggest reason for that is the day i had yesterday. Was really active with a lot of stuff the whole day and i guess i was still tired today. And with that i had no motivation.

Had a short test run though. Put some “new” pedals on the bike and went out to see how it felt. Did some track stand practice and some practice getting up on things and dropping of.The pedals are nice. I already knew that. They were on my trail bike before. New pedals on its way for my trail bike so i moved the old ones to my dirt bike. To get better grip than my earlier did.

My body did feel up to the ride so i cut it short and decided to have a rest day. Hoping to have a good day on my dirt bike tomorrow. Some stuff i want to test.


Scott Voltage YZ 0.1

I bought this in april, 2018. It was a used bike that i bought from a neighbor for a pretty good price. I wanted a bike like this and buying this one gave me the opportunity to have one. It was in a pretty good shape. I had to fix the cranks during the summer because of some issues, and i had to buy a front brake. Other than that it was rideable from day one.

Its a 2013 model with 26 inch wheels and a fork with 100 mm travel. The plan is to use this bike for things like dirt jumping, street riding, trials and other technical riding. And to have a different bike to use when practicing stuff. Its nice to have a smaller bike when practicing stuff like jumping, doing manuals, bunny hops and other things. Those are skills i want to be able to do on my 29 inch hardtail as well. The other part i want to focus a lot on is trials and to see how far i can take it.
