But you have to wait when you come across people... maybe it's just a flow-trail thing.

Sweeps are great, especially if you are hungry for more. I'd never line up though. Just get there as they are giving the last out. There's always a few double blacks that no one wanted to take.

Those are the ones I want also. But gotta be careful as no one is coming down after you.

I always hope to get to the lift minutes before close so I can ride what I want.... I'll take a sweeps lap if there are any left overs.

Walk up from the exit of Fatcrobat and look to your right.  Or hit Expressway at the container jump and ride for a bit then look left..

And  please don't walk around on it to look. It's still wet from winter and never got packed in by bikes so will be easily thrashed. Its about 2.5km of tightish blue flow trail without jumps. Think along the lines of b-line having a baby with ninja cougar.

Cool, look forward to seeing it when it's ready and open. We did one Blue Velvet on Sat and one on Sunday and that mud bog in the one corner was hilarious. I guess it's just assumed it will get beat to hell. I also want to see the new Too Tight. Won't be in the park for a couple weekends unfortunately due to travel.

Some major work happening in lower joyride... chainsaws, chipping away rock, oh my.

Top of BV dried out amazingly fast.

The braking bumps are back. I dunno if they are 26, 27.5, or 29's. Almost summer conditions on the lower trails. Blue Velvet has dried right up. Got a couple firsts in, which is always nice.

Aline is well on its way on its biannual transition to a tech trail.

What happened to WALK YOUR BIKE guy? It's utter lawlessness these days.

Seven Year War to the tree island to no (new?) joke to drop in clinic is pure bliss.

Even the fire road bit.

(I still fail to see how it is physically possible to triple the island entrance)

You actually still need to brake for it. It's not the triple that's hard, it's what happens after!

Yeah, I'd have no problems clearing the three, but I feel like I'm at the limit making it through there just with the two.

The bit Yoann did with a certain park crew member last year through there was eye opening.   Ballerina's twisting through there at mach 90 where as I'm pure violence at 50.
