Huge New Structure At Woodhill

Postby miles on Sun 16/Sep/07 11:37am

Was out at Woodhill by Aviator yesterday and saw a ute so went and had a look. There was Andy? I think thats him has put two posts where the new ramp will be. I didnt have a measuring tape or anything out there but it is a 10 metre gap with a 3 metre drop easily. Its massive.

went and had a look at that today thats a big step down, way bigger than anything else in bikeparks, theres a few trees down the bottom that would be easy to smash into if you went off line

Bigger than 51, Looking forward to it. Can't wait to see a hucker or 2 overjump it to the flatland lol. It'll be like a 10m vert drop to flat if you hit it too quick.
I reckon a roll in from the left with 2 pedals will set you up sweet tho.

But that just highlights the unreliability of the X system.
There are 3Xs way harder than some of the 4s and 5s.

What does it relate to? size? difficulty? Both?

Now that it's getting quite big out there, how about a revision, like A-E for difficulty and 1-5 for size. Where an A1 is huge and tricky but an A5 is tricky but small and E1 will be easy and big and an E5 will be easy and small.
Or anything where technical skills are seperated from size.
Eg AV8R is easy but big getting a C2, and Crazy high line would be A3 as it's hard but not too big.

zipping down a trail, burning round the berms, two wheel drifts, never ridden here before and its awesome, jump coming up, a1 coming up, what the hell is an a1? ill hit it anyway. let your imagination work. its a bit difficult really, a good idea, i think the x's on the trail is so srtiking, its obvious whether youll be able to do it. maybe 2 more x's?

I have no sympathy for the person who hurts themselves on a new trail / park simply because they didn't take the time to double check what they are hittiing

what Jamie is saying makes sense,for someone like myslef who struggles with "big" stuff, but often enjoys the smaller but tech stuff, it'd be great IMHO
