In 2010/11 there was a major amount of harvesting in the area and the Rotorua Mountain Bike Club took the opportunity for a full rebuild. Part of the brief was to retain the shape and length of the original and in this the Club, along with Mark, have created another masterpiece. The original B Rude Not 2 defined fast and flowing and that is improved in version 2.

It is a favorite of many riders in Whakarewarewa Forest and handles wet weather well so is a good choice to ride after rain.
