Build tomorrow will be installing the new drop ramp for Roller Coaster, ramp is built, just need to dig out the jump and clear the dropzone, and that will be it, will look at getting a ride in and checking out what else has been done to the rest of the trails, :(

Sweet. Will hopefully make it up tomorrow. Probably around the same time I always get there (around 2) for a few runs. Never made it up last Sunday as I rode the 42nd traverse. I saw that shitty clearlying at the bottom of reserection (wtf?), but whats this about people digging holes after the ramps? Kinda puts me off pinning it. Might even walk it just to be safe I think...

Awesome build today, got the drop built and got some mint sessoning in, Took the Tank jump ram-p to about a metre from teh structure, pwhoar it was a close call for the back tyre apparently, (this is the biggest gap i have hit with this style of jump) so i will be looking at hitting the step up on cookie 2 next time we are in woodhill :thumbsup:


The dropzone is full of loose roots and shit we have given it a clearing but it will take some sessioning to get it all loosened up and then we will repack the landing and surrounding area and carpet it, strangely enough you can actually carry a fair bit of speed off the ramp and into the next jump its not as much as the run on hte other side but its just something different :D

The run in is smooth after a few runs you get into the flow and it feels good as

We have parted the Pine to make it grow out and up hopefully this will ceate a nice tree gap in the future

Went up about 4pm this avro. Good little drop, but the landing is super soft. Found a bit of carpet to put down to stop it rutting out.

Also had a crack at that structure over by the water tank. Thats pretty cool too, nice landing.

good work

Sweet , yeah the landing is pretty soft, but i want it to rut out so we can get it back down to the clay, so i wouldnt worry bout the carpet, we will put that back in later once the top soft layer is gone, yeah structure is pretty good eh i am enjoying it heaps.

Liam .. Hude has some vids and Sorin has 1 too i think, should be up soon .
