had a good build today cheers to pete and josh for helping the lower section of taniwha is all clearerd and ready for riding again :thumbsup: ......
also R2 (coming off ressurection) is open for riding, some work is still needed but it is fully ridable just when you meet up with the XC track follow it round onto ressurection for now, over the next month i will get the exit cleared up so the trail is a complete run :thumbsup:

Another good build today Sam and I got about 6 metres dug up and levelled out over the middle section so just watch out, it's a bit soft and needs some rain but it has made the whole section way more smooth so you can keep the speed up

Build today :thumbsup:, tidied up top stump area so it's not so stop start, have cleared some debris from track and made berm at rise better :cool: .
Hope to do a spray on the trail next weekend as well as more work...... lots of dirt moving :sneaky:
Carpark.jpg
The new carpark at the bottom gate for those who haven't seen it yet
Rebuilt Nana line with stump jump.jpg
Stump to be used as a jump to flat before droping into the berm after it, nana line on right will be fairly smooth
Straight with jumps on left.jpg
Fast line on the right with two dirt jump style jumps on left, first will be a gap only and second will be a Foot Plant over the stump for the Keen ones!!!
Sam on the steps.jpg
Berm to Riser.jpg
This is a bit of a toughy, the berm needs more work but im aiming to have this rise pretty fast, this leads out onto open track and a big berm dropping left with a stepdown in the middle of it, leading to a series of 3 step downs.

:pmob: DAMN!

Where's that new carpark? Is it just along AC road from the old entry gate?

gates/culverts look too narrow for me to get my truck in but :lol: How am I going to live up there now :eh:

guess I'll have to stay here.

Top effort - must get back up to ride the trails some time :)
