Trail Update - Rad to the Power of Sick

The guys behind the Christchurch track Rad to the power of Sick have been busy over the last year and a half, pushing the track further and further up the hill. When I got an email asking if I'd like to come along to film another update video I jumped at the opportunity.

It's been a bit of a battle building the new section, with two giant man made quarter pipes and numerous lines you can really see the hard work that's been put into the area. Enjoy the video of a fun session on the new section of track and a bit of a BBQ too. You can clearly see that not only has the track progressed but so too have the riders, the fruits of their labor are clearly paying off.

Keep up the great work guys, it's great to see more and more tracks like this popping up all over the hill and it wouldn't be possible without builders like Nick, Duane, Damo, Richey and all the other guys who have lent a hand digging on the track! In case you missed it, here is the first update featuring the lower section of the track which now starts just after the final jump on the new section.

Here are a few snaps from the day from Nick Middleton:

 nice trails! but the first video looks like a jumpy park and the second video looks more like a trail. did it change that much or are they different?

 Yea things definitely changed a bit from section to section, the new section is just above the one from the second video so it can all flow as one track but it is very fun to play and session on the new section too.
