And You Thought Trail Building In Nz Was Tough?...

Postby ferrari_chris on Thu 19/Mar/09 7:45pm

My mate who is an ex-pat Kiwi now living in The West Island sent this news story through.

Turns out, they're talking about a track that he built! We had a good laugh about it. Geez, the Brisbane council must be made up of ex-Nazi officers or something.

Still, at least his homebuilt track made it into the paper. And he wasted some local govt. getting it torn apart.

I don't think the MTB Club member they spoke to sees the value in DH...

Ha ha! Did you read the "Huge Haul" story on the same page......I don't think they need to worry about 300m of downhill anymore, those dudes could build 300Km worth!!!!
