The raptor shale up

The raptor shale up
putting the finishing touch into the raptor technical section (used to be papaya drop) took us the whole afternoon. nice greyish shale are placed into the scattered rock garden, crash test dummies sent in to determine the line and flow. and we have a very nice section that rewards the technical riders and slow down ...

Angry

Angry
the last major turn to be build. Angry – angry man turns is a fast turn with a big berm bringing the ride almost 90 degree  to the left and allow expert riders to take the speed up the next climb. take a comparison of the same turn 4 years ago, is certainly very different ...
