You will need to use and extra transition support in the middle, some examples from the project pages:

like bobby said, youll have to have transition support in the middle, if i were you i would have a transition every 4', so you would need a total of 3 transitions per side and 6 all together, and the best way to put the 2x4s in is to use those 2x4 brackets, otherwise you would have to off-set the 2x4s, which would be a pain

it is a bad idea to make two ramps built side by side if u skateboard just a little crack makes a difference and then not every thing will be the same

Here's what i'm doing for a 12' wide. Did all this last weekend. Almost done with the ply. I notched the center trannies and used 12' joists.
