One guys knees blew out, another sold his bike afterwards and gave up mountainbiking! It hadn't rained for 10 days or so, so Greymouths water supply was rationed, but it was still boggy and muddy and rooty and slippery, dam it was great! There is a photo of it somewhere on Vorb, I'll try and find it and put it here... It is extremely technical / steep etc. I can't think of many tracks to compare it to really. The bottom third of the descent to Barrytown is a big benchtrack, like queen charlotte or something... but the top 2 thirds are super tech...
Attached is a photo. I have some video at home I guess... One day I'll make a video (he says knowing its not true)
