Even if one hardly suspects it, dirt parks already have a long-standing tradition. With the beginnings of BMXing in America, the desire to create jumps in one’s own garden arose. Since then the facilities have changed due to the influence of MTB sports, but the principle has remained the same: On a mostly flat level, one can find specially groomed and possibly paved tracks featuring typical obstacles such as jumps, berms and waves for each level of ability. The dirt park is characterized by its perfectly coordinated sequence of jumps with variable levels of difficulty. While beginners can still roll over the jumps, more difficult lines have to be completely cleared in order to land safely. The slopestyle course can be seen as an extension of the dirt park, where the use of e.g. wooden obstacles and artificial ramps plays a central role.
