      Still looking totally unloved, not sure who looks after this track if anyone at all.

      Looking very unloved in places. Sections of rock armour on drops starting to collapse, and trees starting to overgrow in places

      Starting to dry out and get super hard leading up to summer. Massive of braking bumps on the high-speed and steep sections.

      Major washout before you enter the trees. Can't carry any speed into it or risk OTB

      Tracks perfect in places with a few wet patches

       Massively overgrown and unfortunately quite neglected. Had to bush bash the majority of the way down. Would not recommend the effort.

       Wow that was shit, track is fully rutted out, overgrown, and the jumps are preying crap. Track was a total waste of time.

       The easy DH line is clear, and most of the jump line. The freeride line is not clear at this stage. This is a grade 4 and 5 track so treat it with respect, don't bring a knife to a gun fight, some lines are rutted out. The top section is hard clay which is very slippery when wet but good when dry and it dries up quickly with some sun.

       Maintenance work underway. Closures in large sections. May not be rideable though. Will try for weekend openings.

       Rode this today for the first time. Well maintained and easy for someone to run a simple shuttle.

       Tracks running pretty sweet. A little rutted out in one steep section. But in reasonably good condition.
