A great morning for a ride today conditions were a little greasy but that is what winter riding is all about and the kids and old men seemed to manage very well.
Next race on the 25th of June, probably back in the Scenic, keep an eye for details.

Just to let everyone know the i have re shaped the log kicker and reshaped the lip on the tabletop plus removed the rocks that were coming through and smoothed out the runin as it was pretty rutted- after these photos the landing for the log kicker got widened and roots removed.
Please test hit before full speed

I hope people don't mind but I've made a small 'light' gravity orientated connector track which I will connect with bottom track. The track shouldn't compromise any walkers and is in a relatively quiet part of the park. Probably avoid with the carbon XC bike! As always, please don't ride it if it's wet.

Also, big thanks to the guy who was weed eating for hours around the rollercoaster track. 👍
