    We finally got the drop, run-in and lander on the new lower Windmill trail re-route finished this week. Thanks to all who helped carry the lumber last weekend and hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor next time. Thanks to Brian for building the structure this week. Lou and I finished up the lander and approach today. About a 5'-7' drop depending on your speed. I expect test ride results Wed. Profro!








    It's Lou approved!

    She was all bark and no action.

    Thanks. From the looks of your posts you've been staying pretty busy yourself!

    Thanks again. That section took a little time, but wasn't too bad compared to some of the more root infested sections.

    Well, the new drop is alot of fun. I couldn't resist getting in on the Wed. evening action and the weather couldn't have been nicer. I managed to grab some quick shots of our posse hittin' our newest feature. Definately better than the tight switchback that was the only option prior to this.









    It was getting dry and dusty already.

    crashing at a trail near you...
    that sure is a purdy drop. how hard do you have to hit the brakes to avoid that tree at the bottom of the run out if you hit the launch with good speed?
    also, i sure would hate to drift right coming off that drop...it wouldn't be a fun ride.

    You don't have to hit your brakes at all or worry about any trees. The pics may just be deceiving as to how close they are. Now go off the trail and that's a different story.
