yesterdays trail work was about draining puddles from HH you can check the work out herehttp://www.spadewerx.co.nz/blog/
although I got rid of the puddles I imagine there will still be some soft muddy spots around at the weekend.
have fun, see you out there :)

yea im saying that bout 90% of them are good but, some things just need smothining such as holes on takeoffs of the river double, hole on landing of the double at end of teal line and some ruts going into nana lines making it real sketch in some sections

I can't remember who asked, it was quite a while back, for the hill road entrance to rollercoaster to be cleared of overgrowth. I can't take credit for it, as it was Red and his PD crew. Great work Guys.

Todays trail maintenance involved an inspection of HH (by bike :) ) then there was a jump on LRRH that needed its take off fixing. Both LRRH and Corners need the outslopes raking out, might be a good job for a rainy day...

Oh I had a chat to the guys working on that stuff today, I think. Is that the stuff by the Hill Rd entrance? Spoke to the guy carving the Douglas Fur. He told me its Kaitiake (sp?), Caretaker of the Forest. Nice guy with a passion for what he's doing.

Yup, at the intersection of Nice Road/Hill Road. Great place for a wazz before a race.

Just in case you aren't aware of it yet ... there is a tree down across Be Rude about 50 meters in from the Mad if ya don't exit. ... Quite a large tree big enough that we couldn't lift it out of the way. :)
