Good to see people sorting these now! Shame it's the same old story, Everyone wants to ride but wont dig, If i get chance i'll try and pop down at the weekend and give you guys a hand.

I think the main reason there's not already a bigger set is because people who are really serious about it will just build their own trails where they want them rather than somewhere where all the hard work will be wasted and the jumps just get trashed...

Hey Mr J, if you ever go up ill come along dude! Big love x

The big problem is that we had the jumps looking pretty sweet, But someone rebuilt the first take off and had been riding the set and they had massive holes in because they where soft as, and when they left they didnt even fix them. So smashing the first jump to bits still doesn't stop them!!

need to put some immoveable object in front of the first jump while there being sorted, like a massive pile of logs. obviously not the easiest thing to do.

if someone wants to sub me a car i can park my t4 transporter in front of them Wink but jokes a side go and get some of those logs next to the fc building cut up and I'll drop them off if they dont mind

When you hear from the FC and they are going to be talking about whats going on with the dirt jumps could you keep us up to date about whats going on with them? as we want them to be best condition as possible ready for summer!

Good work..

Have they got any plans to sort any of the other trails out do you know ?? They just seem to be tear-arsing about in a mini digger at the moment.

Loads of corners really need building up in to berms.. Would give the track loads more flow..!

I'll happily lend a hand with some shovel time.
