Ziggy, its been about a year now at about 25 man hours per week on average. So a lot of hours.

Joshac, you can start from the 4wd track that branches off towards the middle of Race Line just before the 40. There is one new jump in that section which is pretty nice, more to come. A bit tight at the moment where it rejoins the rest of the track but will improve that soon. It will at least go up to where Race Line starts, and from there maybe up to the skidder site.

We are aware that there is a tree down and will get onto clearing it as soon as possible. But from what I hear it is a big tree so may need the park staff to get in there with a chainsaw.

Glad you guys are enjoying it and thanks for all the positive feedback.

"This is a max wicked sick BMX. It's a Reliance Boomerang and it's done heaps of maximum extreme stunts. I have mostly done stunts on this bike since forever. Once I did a boom gnarly stunt trick on it and a girl got pregnant just by watching my extremeness to the maxxxx. Some details about sickmax BMX: Comes with everything you see including: TOPS AS SUSPENSION REAR FORKS!! 2 x wheels 1 x seat I will even thrown my sick BMXing name for FREE - Wicked Styx. Has minor surface rust on handlebars and front forks (easily removed). More rust on rear forks (as shown in pics). Tyres hold air but are pretty old. Basically, it's an old BMX, but it's radness is still 100% in tact. Tricks I have done on this BMX: Endos - 234. Sick Wheelies - 687. Skids - 143,000. Bunny Hops - 2 (Bunny Hops are gay and my brother dared me to do them, which I did because I'm Rad to the power of Sick). Flipouts - 28. Basically if you buy this bike you will instantly become a member to every club that was ever invented, worldwide, because you will be awesome. Pick up from Richmond in Melbourne. Throw your hands in the air like you just don't mind."]

Hey tomorrow night Huxster are having a dirt jumps / slopestyle? competion on the track, to make it non intimidating we will just be riding the bit from half way down the second straight - starting on the tabled section of the second gap, down to the corner beore the next gap, and we'll have judges at three spots, watching, the main jumps they will be watching are the g out jump (the 2nd jump after what will be the start, just before the corner by raceline), the glory bowl jump (spine / rising tabletop with the big tree on the right, that Duane tire taps on the video) and the step up to flat that I fail to 360 / 270 on in the video. They will be the main focus and we'll come up with some sought of points scheme, so that if you do one jump really well, but the jump before or after it is missed (I'm thinking about the glory bowl jump mostly) or ridden poorly then you will only be able to get maybe 7 out of 10 or something. It should be heaps of fun so rock on up...

Rad^Sic, the sickness grows. The new bits at the top continue the brilliant track design and building work. Big thanks to the builders. My bike riding has improved more in one summer of riding that track than in the previous five; or something like that.

Cheers woofdog, thanks very much, congratulations are always good, more so when they come from a trail god!

The new section is coming along really nice, but we're trying to wet down the quarter pipe at the moment, so it might be a bit shaky for a while, hopefully it will come right soon.
