I'm waiting to see what happens to the landing and if the run in from the bank to ramp gets smoothed off a bit.
Perfectly doable tho. The skinny would be too if I could ride in a straight line. :)

the skinny not straight any way :sly:

im yet to work out how you get enough speed from the skinny to hit the landing(if the landing is the bank after the road edge) after watching the vids from the 51 gap :eh:

It's easy you just come in along the ridge then take a sharp left under the srtucture (you need corners to check your speed) then pin it to the drop.

This jump is bigger than 51 so I guess you need the same or more speed. My trip computer said 34kmh last time i did it.

I was up there (for the first time ever haha) and saw it and went "faaark . .. that is one big jump" haha looks pretty cool though - would love to be around when someone hits it.

the landing is going to be wer the natural steep landing allready is but andy's plan is to build a steep wodden downramp and the cover it in a thick layer of dirt so that it is much more forgiving...and yes andy had dibs for hitting it first haha
