Trail building is something I love as much as riding racing I go to the mountains near home after the races with a vision to build technical hardcore stuff and keep it fun too. I dig about 7 hours when I go to the trails just to make the most of it and I really enjoy the process ....digging is a good way to exercise to and get tough too.

The reason why I started this trail was to have something different, and that there is not so much snow compared to the original spot . When I started digging this trail there was snow at the top that's why we started from the bottom. I wanted to build something fast . The whole trail took me 6 days to clear, that was also because we had a big fire on this mountains too, by the time I finished the snow melted at the top and exposed some serious rocks. There was no way you could go through and carry some speed. So I came with a wooden construction that I needed to build and took 5 days to complete, very challenging as well cause I needed to move some huge logs I used a rope for that.

Pointy rocks everywhere mean it's easy to have a flat tyre

4-time Greek national champion Konstantinos Andriotis knows how to ride some rocks

have to be a bit crazy to ride this track fast how to figure out the line is another thing

The video is not professional, two friends of mine help me do that and I did the edit so its not perfect we used a GoPro 7 and a sony handy cam.
