Ya to t3aser, Donalds Farm is in richwood just past the town, it is by this one pub restaurant. If you drive through the main road in Richwood going towards durbanville, keep on looking to your left and you will see the jumps, and yes they are alot more do able than gumtrails!Wink

Dude you should come to majik forest, that's about a kilometer from gum. Mostly xc although pretty good training for dh. Alot of the dh guys train there, like pottie, dean, jaco etc. Nice drop-off's and good overall practice. And best of all it's about 8k's from my house and basically in durbanville itself. Just watch out mostly for runaway bergies and random dudes high on dagga, but also those huge-skidding - lycra-cladded - high-seated - brakebump-generating xc guys and of course dean(just joking, he's like a rhino through those trails!!!)

PS. You don't know Div Devlin?
He's originally from Cape Town but moved to England when he was 12 or something. He became an pro dirt-jumper in england riding for Halo and DMR Bikes. He's about on the same level of jimmy pratt, that's really good. Anyways he moved back to Cape town to visit family and mainly rides at gum. Dude, that guy is maniac. That trickjump after that new pretty berm; he launches it skyhigh. You can see he's pro. Quite a priviledge, he's probably like the best djer in RSA
