Rode past upper Dales tonight and had a look. Amazing. People are going to love it.
Did a full old school jam. CBC, TNT, NEDS. I think they should hire Paddy Kane to redo CBC too…BUT leave TNT alone. It's beautiful. Kind of a masterpiece. CBC is right fucked though and needs help.
Interesting about the work on Dales so far. Curious to know what's it look like? Won't have a chance to check it out until next week.
I didn't think CBC was that bad, yes, it's pretty rough right now, especially when riding a trail bike vs DH bike, but it definitely provides a challenge to get through it vs rolling through sculpted corners at every turn.
I think many are torn on this issue. The new school flow is certainly fun and learning to ride it faster and carry the momentum is another skill set to improve on, however, the old school trails like CBC, Dales, Bookwus and many others, have their own challenges to get through. Attempting to ride them smoother and creating flow is just another skill set. Different then the flow trails, perhaps harder to master but hopefully still relevant.
