Video: Matt Jones Shows Off his New Backyard Dirt Jumps

Jul 12, 2020
by Ed Spratt  


bigquotesWatch how Red Bull’s Mountain Biker Matt Jones manually imported and moved 100 tonnes of dirt and moulded it into an insane backyard racing track.

With limited access to bike parks, tracks, playgrounds and travel around the world, Matt was looking for new ways to keep up his agility and fitness on the bike at home in the UK, during the Covid-19 lockdown period. Matt decided there was no better way than to take on the challenge of building his very own racing track, with all the routes and jumps he needed, in his very own backyard.

 It's the fistbump game he plays with his filmermans friend that's what it's all about. Their lockdown backyard build series is the best. Dude is as good a host as he is a rider, and deserves to be at the top of all youtuMTBers. Fantastic!

 By far, the best COVID series on the internet, hands down. Matt, seeing your great attitude and digging abilities helped keep many of us sane during lockdown. You definitely deserve all the kudos in the world.

 Better than Fairclough's Lockdown Rampage?

I love both series though.

 Nice. 100 tonnes of dirt? 110 tons of dirt for the rest of the world living in the US, Myanmar and Liberia.

 I wish I knew how to build a pump track or a small dirt jump line but the truth is that I have never even ridden one. Does anyone know if there’s any tutorials somewhere?

 Nice set up but how's Clay in the rain? Should get really slippery and UK have it's fair share of rain.

 His jumps are topsoil, not clay. rain is also welcome as top soil can get extremely cracked and can fall apart easy when super dry

 watch the series and you see Ben (camera man) ride no brake BMX and use the daisies as the most amazing way of slowing himself down
