Build tomorrow, round 3pm, back to ressa, clear some more gorse and hopefully make it up to the XC crossing, hope to take the bike out too..!!!!


Bit of a bugger for the build the slasher broke down, bit of water in the carby, wouldn't start and the holder broke, oh well got out the handsaw and cut a good viewing area for the Lower Taniwha and Ressa junction, hope to rebuild the beast this week and continue the assault next weekend, going to look real good for the end of summer ..!..

Build today, will look to work around the lower Taniwha area today, 3PM at the car-park.
went for a looksie there on Wed arvo, going to clear the line into the lower jump area, clear the jumps and clear back up to the big berm and jumps...., will also cut back the gorse on the shelf and look to add a drop in line for the jumps.. along the lines of a drop the drop over Taniwha and into a hipped lander then onto the jumps thru to the pad... will try to get a digger in there at some stage to make some clay piles so we can build a various set of lines and hopefully a pump track.

Monday is a day off for me so I will be up there from early morning thru to 2 ish, will be looking to clear all the sides of Lower Taniwha from the Big berm back and on Ressa from the XC crossing thru to the top ... if your keen to lend a hand then turn up hope to have a bit of a ride too...!!!!!!!



Good build yesterday, got the grass off the sides at the bottom of Ressa, then hit the scrub round the lower dirt jumps, all set for Monday to finish slashing in there and rake it up.. should be pretty good in there, will cut a set of steps into the hill as a walk up path for the drop into the hip landing, will look at doubling up the 4th jump as a left and right line onto the pad, will get a digger into there to scrape all the top off and get us some nice piles in there for shaping, will also use this as practice for building Jump Track later on...

Build tomorrow arvo, away this saturday so going up after work , be there from half 4 onwards

Good little build today, just refacing the small jump line. After having dug the 2-3 inchs of silt out of the first and removed the 4 layers of carpet the front looked very high, the 2nd jump has a lack of landing slope and made the 3rd hard to hit on target, cleared this up thou works like a charm. have carpeted all of the faces and some of the landings giving the faces a bit more of a square lip, also going to clear out the exit and build 1 last jump and berm should be good..!
