Join Gee and Dan as they take you down the new El Hippo trail at Dyfi bike park.

bigquotesIncredible! El Hippo is short, flowy and a lot of fun – you can take it steady - or get wild like mad man Dan Atherton Gee Atherton
bigquotesYeah we have concentrated on making this trail fun, we’ve smoothed a lot of sections out so its confidence building for intermediate riders but the pros are loving it! Dan Atherton

Using the new drop off point at the Dyfi Timber sawmill you can can't straight onto the El Hippo trail which features berms, hip-jumps and technical rock and root sections. There is also a link to the bottom of the 50 hits jump line.

 Intermediate ???? hahahahhaa. Maybe if your usual level is Rampage, but to most mortals that's proper death and broken bones there Smile

 "Confidence-inspiring for intermediate riders"

Assuming they class intermediate as 'not done a world cup yet'.

In all seriousness, looks a lot of fun (if a little above my skill level). Hope Dyfi goes well for the Athertons.

 It all.depends how fast you take it. Taken at a slower speed there is nothing that's not rollable. Don't need to send the jumps large.

 @endorium: Exactly, riders like Dan & Gee can make a trail look much scarier than it is just by the way they ride it. Add that kind of speed and the way they are boosting the jumps and gaping small trail features and even a tame trail can look pretty gnarly. Like you said there didn't seem to be much on that trail that couldn't be done at much slower and more deliberate way.

 Seeing the Atherton bro’s shredding and going huge together is always so fun to watch. It’s like some classic Earthed section.

 If there's anywhere in the world with less actual dirt than the Canadian Rockies, it must be here.

 So if you wash out on a berm here, do you basically just say goodbye to all of your skin?
