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 the newbies.

the chicken line (detour) is 80% completed for this section, with the workers placing the final tight turn to slow down the detour rider further.
