going back to the where we begin about 2 weeks ago, we’ve finally harvest enough rocks for this major build.

yesterday’s effort covered the drain crossing effectively, and the works continue with the scattered rock section.

This rock garden is build on the rather flattish area effectively allow a skilled rider to negotiate and choose the best of lines.

An average 5 sec can be save during a race by taking this technical feature, while the riders who opt for the chicken line is forced to negotiate a bigger detour.

The ‘busstop’ turn where the Y-junction occurs is almost ready, where we plan to have earth and poured in before further compaction.

As this is the first wet day at the track  (the first rain drop in a month!), we took the opportunity for some manual trail shaping.

The trail drainage is almost perfect and the rain highlighted section that needed extra attention

The afternoon is spent cleaning up the section, backsloping and grading.

this section looks ready!
