Awesome build today thanks to Dave and Sorin, got the Tuna's Tail trail cleared and tidied up a bit, will be looking at cleaning it up more over the next coupe of weekends, trail is a bit wet but once we get some drains in it will stay dry a lot more, going to add some jumps along the way and also bank some of the corners up to carry speed..... :thumbsup:

New line next to stepdown is died off pretty quick due to the slash, so i will be giving it just a bit more of a clear next weekend and then in a couplre of weeks we will start building on it. Hopoefullly be loooking at getting some more wood in the next cou[ple of weeks so we can start building some more ramps etc for the drops on Taniwha.

Sorin and i had a ride in on the new entry to Taniwha, it's bloody fast now and even the bypass line is an awesome ride just due to the amount of work you need to do with the bike to get thru without problems, i found myself nose manualling in the middle just to stay on track, awesome fun will look at getting some photo's when we session it next.>!!!!

Awesome build today, we got lots more done than i expected, just basically making tuna to flow and be smooth......

Good Effort Guys, will look at finishing the rutted section after the last berm, fill all the ruts in and general tidy up!!.
Liams Jump.jpg
Pretty sure this is actually Super Daves jump as he like that sort of thing and thinks that DH is shit........... Noice Sorin
Tuna Berm 1.jpg
Looking back at the entry berm of Tuna, have just raised it slightly to aid in the speed
Tuna Berm 2.jpg
A nice pre-made berm on tuna which we opened up, Liam such a trooper....
Tuna Berm 3.jpg
Same with this one just to carry the speed into the uphill part
Tuna Berm 4.jpg
This corner was pretty crap before so have bermed it slightly so to carry the speed
Tuna Berm 5.jpg
Old berm in the first stage of re-build this will hoperfully get scratched out and be quite smooth and fast, also note the stump for a potential jump
