One month to build sand and water BMX course in minus-30 degrees.
Here is all you need to know:
– Lake Ladoga, located in northwestern Russia, is the largest lake located entirely in Europe and 14th largest freshwater lake by area in the entire world.
– For this project, a total of four hundred tons of sand and water were used to build the BMX playground with the minus-30 degrees conditions turning them into a form of concrete in the constantly freezing weather.
– It took one month to construct the stunning sand castles with only a 15-centimetre sand layer built at a time before the water was added but often conditions were so cold the lake water had frozen solid.
– When it was finally built, the talented pair unfurled all manner of tricks under stunning blue skies in sub-zero weather with the riders understandably having to dip their feet in buckets of hot water just to warm up.
