I wish I lived closer so I could reclaim some trail Krama. Not that I'm using much at the moment.

Sorry, good call on the blackberry, my bad. What I was really meaning, is that is one little trail that gains its character in that each jump and landing are not perfect, there is some rut stuff happening, and bits of log coming thru parts of the trail in places. And its great just like that, I wouldnt want to see it all smoothed out and perfect 1.5 metres wide.

did some more work on friday to the Genesis Pump track

i see Richard has done a lot of work to get maintenance corner (on Roller coaster) into this shape

and in the other pic this is how they were using blocks at the Mont st Anne DH track to support the berm. May use this technique on the top of the Jump track

Nice idea with the blocks, it gives it more grip, makes it more technical at the same time.
if i'm not busy next week and the weather's good, I'll head over again to give you a few hours of trail work :thumbsup:

Thanks fo' shizzle my nizzle...
weather this week has been fantastic, really enjoying being out in the forest.
Also sessioned the pump track to get an idea of how it's all shaping up, it wasn't right, but really enjoyed it :)
gonna head out for a rake and ride later to tackle the worst flowing spots. will try and get as much work done on HH before the weekend, as i think it's going to be a ripper!
