It appears i have ridden BBT. Afterall then. I didnt know that new line had a name, and was thinking BBT was some old trail

BBT was an old trail that was abandoned and reclaimed by nature over the years, the new one crosses over the old line a few times. You can see some old ladder bridge relics on the side of the trail from days gone by.

Lost and Lazy was up high, about 5 minutes or so before the entrance to Triple Crown.

The bottom of BBT gets super soggy in the wet. It will see trail work but it will take time and likely won't be enjoyable in the wet until next year.

Yes, when you hit it, you can actually just pop up GOC and hit the last 4 or 5 hits in an easy push. They're probably the funnest part of GOC as well.

I spoke with the contractor working up at the hair pin today. They plan to rebuild the bridge and a few other spots the storm has taken out.

The new connector trail on Eagle, Huntley's, is now open for business. It connects the top of Imby into Physio without having to lose any vert on the road. After you come out of Imby, it's on the other side of the road, slightly to the left between the two big cedars. I will be adding more dirt to it, but want people to ride it in a bit first. Where it joins into Physio, I've left it natural (duff) to see what happens, and will likely back fill it with dirt in the coming weeks.

Will check it out Biggles. Thanks for the update. Heard that Mistress is also running really well these days. I keep giving it a pass, but will give it a go this week.

Nice one Steve, I've got to get out there and test it out. Heard its a donkey puncher.

FYI-If no one rides it, it will remain duff. If people ride it, it will turn to mud that you'll have to scoop out before you back fill. Always a good time!

It's a short flat section, and it will eventually get backfilled, but I'm curious to see what happens with riders. It's really fibrous right now and a few tyres will make it easier to bust up. (I also ran out of light and beer yesterday ;))

And WH, the Massage-Manhandler-3LP-Mistress lap is totally awesome old school rowdiness. I want to get up and ride it this week one evening.

As long as you didn't run out of light beer.

the wood is green and nasty on mh now. tires might stick better than hiking boots though!

Ice starts on the road at the slide and is spotty from there to TC.

TC and SIX both have some pretty deep mud ruts, would suggest letting them dry out.

I'm sure a day can make a big difference today the wood on Manhandler, 3 Pigs and Mistress was surprisingly grippy!!
