A few weeks ago I saw them working on the track, then that weekend I came down it and realised they had made it into a hump. Not the best design for a track, especially one you might take at moderate speed. It's like riding on a log! I think they creators are hoping the bikes will pack it down and level it out... hope it happens soon, as it's very easy to get off centre and end up 'off piste' there at the mo.
