What is the best dirt for bike jumps?
” Good sub soils are the best for creating a lasting jump. Don’t use organic top soil or anything soft. Dirt that will go hard and not be soft in the long run will help you shape something perfect that’ll stay that way. Try to avoid using logs to fill the jump cores – they will eventually rot and collapse.”
