I hope it succeeds and goes from strength to strength
With the right crew of people I could be even be tempted. Well done to the locals for making this happen.

Thingymajig is a really nice track, and there are some nice fast jumps at the bottom hammys. However there wasn't anything challenging and I would rather hit up mini dream as corners are not that exciting to me. Hopefully the tracks are better next year, I hear nathan greenwood is working on them. The best improvement they could do is get rid of the uphill at the bottom :p.

What is this mini dream track people speak of? I was in Queenstown recently and rode the tracks off the Gondola, 7Mile Park and some other stuff but saw no mini dream?

Mini dream is part of Wynyard Express, basically, one huge freeride line down a hill, mini dream is 20ft gaps, dream-track is 40-50+ ft gaps and a gnarly as road gap drop.

It's on the way out of queenstown as you head down the lake and you go up a series of roads and by this power-station thingy, was there late last year, really fun track. I spent quite a few hours there hitting mini-dream, so much fun!

reference my awesome map for directions :p

I had to check out the road gap. It's scary, not so much the height but the run in and landing. Before you can hit it there are three massive doubles and a quick berm. The landing is 20 vertical meters of absolute steepness.

Yeak ok i didnt look at the Wynyard Express tracks, i saw where they were. I only had my 115mm travel SS XC hardtail with me and read that all those tracks were big jumps so i didnt bother
