We started digging finally!
Not exactly wild yet, but the seeds have been planted and the buds are growing.

Union break. What you can't see is the 5 supervisors standing behind the camera drinking coffee.

Its starting to get wild.

After a week of telling people how awesome it would be to have an S-Turn going around the backside of this double and then gapping from that into the next berm, only to have them insist it would never work I went ahead and built it. After some fine tuning of the landing it works great and you can carry good speed into the next berm. No one else wants to hit it though /=

I had a dream about this the other day.. Strange.It would be rad to have a downhill run comprised of such burms, doubles, and rollers... Albeit, scary as balls.

The line is slightly downhill as is, you come into that turn flying. Then first 2 jumps are left hand hips, then a big downhill into that berm section. Probably going to go into a double, into another berm, a left hand hip, and some more berm craziness after that.
This is the hip that leads into that s-berm.

the old trails i dug at in colorado had this exact same setup. same direction turns and everything.  the gap was about 13 feet or so. left hand berm into right hand berm. only it went over a pit of shitwater.   and more than a few people ended up waist deep in that hole.  but if you got the carve into it perfect it was the funnest jump at the trails.

The gap on ours is maybe 6 feet, really easy to clear. I had to make the berm rollable too because everyone was bitching about the gap, no one even wants to try it even though its super easy.

Maybe you should have got off your fat ass and built some then.

Don't even mention weather/people to build with/type of soil or any other crap. I live in England. You have no excuse.

I'm not having a go because "it's fun to have a go at Bitzer", if anyone said that they would get the same response.

I fucking hate anyone that moans about not having trails.

I ran ahead a bit and hid, dropped my jeans and took my top off and started chasing them whilst spraying beer all over them and making weird noises.

you live in england.  so?  youve got some of the best trails in existance in your country.  multiple ones at that.


come live in the desert.  where it rains less that 2 inches a year. the soil is sand with very few areas of clay. we have no creeks or ponds to bucket water out of to even maintain things once built.

you wanna know how long our trail season lasts?   the week after it rains. thats pretty much it. unless youre lucky enough to find a spot to dig at where you can find some sort of water access which damn near never happen around these parts.

sorry to blow up on you. but your post calling someone out for being lazy/moaning about not having trails. not everyone has it as lucky as you do. id kill to live in england and have the trails you can ride whenever you want.

Digging by yourself is boring.
