Moved to the Bay of Plenty Forum :)


Nizza from Koops and the crew have been doing a lot of work on the dirtjumps (inside a poplar stand I believe) over summer. You could call Koops Cycles (07) 578-5406 for more info.

Hey, I was up there last Sunday for a look. Carl Young has asked that the whole DJ area be finished by end of May. A largish rollin ramp has been built, and some of the jumps have been shaped well, but largely there is still a lot of unfinished mounds of dirt. They were doing a lot of work making log rides and stuff there last weekend, looking real good infact.
I hope to get up there again this weekend with the camera, will post up pics here

So nothing to report sadly.

I was there today, the jump area now has two jumps completed :) very nice jumps too, there another line of two/three table tops being built at the moment, and it looks like there will be lots of other jumps in the area :D also close to the jumps there is some really cool and challenging skinnies that have been built out of a fallen tree, theres at least 4 different lines of differing difficult :D kept me occupied for ages but I finally got all the lines done :D also if you can make it theres a working bee on next sunday (29th)
