    Around here the "official" mtb organization is really good at finding and tearing down illegal trails. Their record sofar for teardowns has been taking out jumps that were built less than 24 hours earlier!

    It sucks.

    We had that same problem when I used to live in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. The local MTB trail was so scared of giving up its crown that it would seeks and destroy anything they didn't have a hand in, then later go back and rebuild things in a much shoddier manner.

    They were a big part of why I stopped supporting IMBA.
