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.
Duane getting flat off the second quarter
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
Nick slashes the first quarter like it one massive berm
Richey was getting high out of the second quarter all day
Another angle on Duane, nice!
