Hey nickel, can you say if Mr. Merchant is good to go in either days or weeks?  If it's the latter, it'd help to know this now.

I want to say it again, new lower A-line bits are very fun.

Posted on the other forum, but huge thumbs up to nickel & trail crew for the work getting things ready. I also expected it to be a mud fest and instead Sunday/Monday felt like early summer (trails and weather). Legs and shoes were even covered in dust.

Sunday was busy, Monday I was riding onto lifts all day in the singles line.

Well, that brand new last jump of A-Line was under major reconstructive surgery today.

If my eye-from-the-chair is to believed it seems that the new jump will have 42.3% less boost and 14.8% more send. Also looks a bit left-to-right hippy, but that could've been an optical illusion.

I will stake the bold claim that no one will be front-flipping this new version.

The jump took so many people out of action today. I can't see it staying long if it carries on.

New Aline ending is sweet, and they have redone the jump and it doesn't seem to be destroying people anymore. The rain today also should help get rid of the dust.

Rain has slowed her down.

Bottom A-Line closed all day.

DBV 2, 3 & 4 all closed.  Awesome.

Dirt Merchant pretty fucking greasy in spots.

If you were taking pictures at the tombstone today, I hope you both heard me mutter, "God dammit" at the lip and got the shot of me bottoming out my front and rear suspension.

She's speeding up quite nicely.

Bottom A-Line opened again and I finally got to ride it.  Damn near perfection.  The new berms at the bottom leave little doubt which way to go.  Be careful on the jump, not hard to clear it to flat.

End of day today was EASILY the best dirt all year up to now. Anyone on the fence should be here, it's full blown hero dirt out there.

I forgot to mention.  They dumbed down DBV.

Much flowy goodness right now.
