Let us introduce you to the world’s first BMX park made from salt. Nearly 12,000 feet above sea level (3,600 meters), it’s located in the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia and pro BMX rider Daniel Dhers got it all to himself.
Made out of salt bricks by John Saxton of Skidmark Parks, the location certainly presented its share of difficulties. The high altitude desert produces an oxygen shortage in the blood, forcing Dhers to limit his runs.
“I would make a line in the salt park and would stop for five minutes to catch my breath again,” explained Dhers to Red Bull.
It’s definitely one of the most unique BMX parks we’ve ever seen. And the desert is known as painter Salvador Dalí’s desert, since it is eerily similar to the scenes he was so famous for.
