How do you build something as nuts as the Red Bull Quarter Master set up? As we saw last year it was an absolute monster. We hit up Kye Forte who’s leading the project again this year. He’s added some changes, here’s what’s happening…

“Large left hand hip is around 8ft lip & landing is about 20ft. Probably my favourite feature think this will see plenty of action & make wicked pictures.
Double jump is 20ft gap but real high should be a true show time booter, we made the landing & lip super long so should relatively safe.
Dirt QP we have added loads of dirt to the top of the lip continuing the transition up, effectively making the lip steeper. We have added a new landing to the right & also made the original a lot steeper, this hopefully should mean smoother landings. The only issue now is you can hang up big time as it’s almost square edge on the top.
It was super hard to add material, the weight of that span of dirt meant it kept slumping, so we had to do small sections at a time & stand on a 14ton digger bucket to reach. (it was very hard work)
We used in total of about 1000 ton of imported dirt & 130 bags of cement.
I Would like to use this opportunity thank James & everyone at Revoloution bike park for being so cool & working so hard. My Dad & all my lads that have helped this year & last this was probably the hardest thing we have made & everyone has trooped on.” – Kye Forte
