SEND IT FROM THE GROUND UP
The Dirtkhana series showcases the collaboration between Trimble, world class civil contractors and premier BMX, mountain bike and motocross athletes. Together, we’re building riding environments—unrivaled in creativity, precision and fun. The word Dirtkhana is derived from the ancient Gymkhana, a skill-based contest. Check out the films below, our dirt pros are the best of the best at sending it from the ground up.
Elite bike riders—Mike “Hucker” Clark, Reed Boggs, Carson Storch,Tommy Zula and Coy White—collaborated with civil innovators Tom Gardocki, Jason Baker, Ryan Goodfellow, Britton Lawson and Jake Hatch to build a new course, made possible only by Trimble technology. Check out the best and baddest, working together to send it from the ground up.
DK3: Behind the Scenes
This is the story of an unrivaled bike experience that couldn’t have happened without the collaboration between premier riders, dirt pros and Trimble technology. Carson Storch, Reed Boggs, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Tommy Zula, Coy White—together with Tom Gardocki, Jason Baker, Ryan Goodfellow, Britton Lawson and Jake Hatch—give exclusive interviews and insights into the process and pro performances at every level.
Legendary motocross and supercross champion Ryan Villopoto (RV2) took on a revolutionary track—built with ultra-precise Trimble technology by Jason Baker, Tom Gardocki, Ryan Goodfellow and Britton Lawson. Joined by pro riders Tyler Bereman, Todd Potter, Lorenzo Locurcio and Alex Martin, RV2 rips through this “dirt mecca” with beastly skill and gravity-defying style.
THE DIRT PROS
Jason started Dream Traxx in October of 2003 after working on many of the motocross / supercross tracks that he’d trained on as a rider. Jason has collaborated with elite riders like Timmy Ferry, James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, Justin Barcia, Trey Canard, and Nico Izzi. He’s the go-to track designer and builder for Red Bull, the Australian Super X series and regularly collaborates with DHI Construction to design and build for the X-Games.
“I’m extremely motivated by the opportunity to address track design in a way that maximizes safety for the riders while increasing excitement for the fans. Ultimately, I’m out to establish a new standard for the sport that I love.”

New Era Excavation
Tom Gardocki, known to the world as The Dirt Ninja, has thousands of followers tuning in daily to watch him run equipment and learn about technology. Tom grew up in his family’s landscaping business and has been moving dirt his entire life. Named one of Construction Equipment Magazine's top 15 under 40 in construction, the sky's the limit for what's next
"Anyone can run equipment, very few can operate"
Ryan Goodfellow, owner of Rock Structures Utility & Excavating has always felt that a large part of the job comes down to creativity and the grit necessary to pull off his vision. With the right collaborators, he’s been able to deliver upleveling work for the past 23 years.
“Moving dirt is every bit as hard as it is rewarding. I was pretty fortunate to find something that I love to do—something that I have a passion to do—at such a young age. A lot of people are still searching for that.”
Black Sheep Skid
Dirtkhana 3 Expertise
Bobcat S450 with Trimble Earthworks
Simply put, Jake Hatch is a one man skid steer stunt show. His company, Black Sheep Skid, is as much an entertainment business as a dirt moving enterprise. As comfortable performing on site as he is in a demolition derby or monster truck rally, Jake works a skid steer with a precision and style the construction world has never experienced. As one example, also holds the current world record for "longest wheelie in a skid loader.” Look it up.
“Most people probably think I was never told what a skid steer was originally designed for. This machine has always just made sense to me.”

Veit & Company, Inc.
Known as “Technology Sandbox” on social media, Britton works with current and emerging construction technologies like an absolute boss. As director of construction technology at Veit & Company, he is a connected construction technology champion. Helping his organization get the best technology return on investment and evolve their processes for the future, Britton brings a love and excitement to every project and site he’s on.
“When I’m working with a bunch of people, with the same passion for construction and technology as me, I’m like a kid in a candy store. I get excited all over again to get work done—in the most effective way it’s ever been done.”
THE TRIMBLE TECHNOLOGY
Grade Control for Dozers
Better blade control. Faster operating speed. Automatic steering. Only Trimble lets you grade higher quality surfaces 35-40% faster, in any material type. Complete the job faster and more accurately—running on time, versus out of time.
Grade Control for Excavators
Maximum efficiency for your excavator. Everyone talks about it, but only Trimble delivers. Operators can now view 3D models in a real-world environment at a true-life scale, in the context of existing surroundings.
Grade Control for Motor Graders
One and Done. Leave a finished grade the first time, every time. Place material faster and with millimeter accuracy. With Trimble on your grader you’ll keep costs to a minimum and realize better profits.
Grade Control for Compact Machines
Maximize the control, speed and flexibility of your compact equipment. Now your small machines can mean big productivity. Get the results you need, eliminate the guesswork and rework, and get to grade the first time with Trimble Earthworks GO!
