Don't Jump Texco

Postby OAP on Thu 19/Mar/09 10:34pm

A Word of warning, went past Texco Jump in Vic Park and noticed the landing all dug up, looks like a digger has been in there and its a work in progress. Not sure if it has been roped off yet but the landing is definately out, heard second hand that a grom got axed on it yesterday.

Groms always get axed on it, that's no strange occurance.

Yep it has been dug up and the rangers failed to tape it off for a day afterwards. Someone came over it and broke their wrist apparently.
It will be shaped in the next day or so. Ill update when its done.

That sucks, but do you ride around with your eyes closed? its pretty obvious that it had been dug up.
Must have been going so fast everything looked blurry or somthing

No but i had hit it the day before and had no reason to look, also my forks were playing up so took the time on the 4wd tracks to glance down at them. Basically the biggest blonde 30 seconds of my life lol :D

Someone (probably some groms) have taken the signs and barriers down so they can jump onto the pile of dirt... So best look before you leap! Just because the signs are down doesn't mean the jumps a runner!!!
