My Trails: Another day, lots more jumps

with one comment

So yeah trail dawgs, another update here. It’s been awhile since I posted any pictures or updates surrounding my trails. Holes have been dug, people have come, 360s went down, and LOTS and LOTS of Monster Energy was consumed.

Development. That sums up the change at the trails since the last update. Not many more actual features have been built, but just about everything there has since seen a rebuild .. for the better, I add. The lack of rain has left the site battered. I know it’s summer, and everyone luuuuurves the sunshine, but jumps NEED water; my trails especially. The grey soil sucks. Ollie “lamdawg” (who’s now a regular builder :D) and I have started to sand/clay everything (yellow/gold colour). It’s a proper bitch to do properly, but it’s the only way the trails will survive any stretch of sunshine.

So yeah, until the rain and sand/clay goes down, they won’t look (or ride) their best, but regardless, it’s always good for a session :). I’ve got a bit of an end-of-summer trail jam planned too, so that’ll motive us to buff everything out. Most of the hard work is done, just gotta dial ‘er in buddaaaaaaaay!!

The captions will elaborate:

An overview: you can see how the jumps are starting to look a bit battered. NEED MORE RAIN. NEED MORE SAND/CLAY.

The latest main line jump on the left. The trick stepup on the right. The bigger jump isnt finished yet - Itll be shorter, steeper and taller once finished :D.

Same again. As you can see more easily now, the main line jump isnt finished.

The 180 berm. Not finished yet, will be taller and steeper once finished. But still rides well ;).

A good angle to show the transfer lines between the main line and small line ;). Fun fun fun.
