S&S C grade reversal corner

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Just started a bit of work on our new DH trail. Skinny Mal and the crew have been going gang busters doing all the hard work just went up today to do a bit of the fiddly stuff.

It all starts with a fast naturally cambered section and then swings up into this corner.

This gives us a natural grade reverse to help control water but has the issue of having the possibility of water sheeting across the trail in the braking and turning zone

Picked up this frame a while ago but as I hadn't had time for DH of late it's been collecting dust.
Last week I had a bit of spare time so thought I'd build it up with parts off my old Norco in the hopes it would inspire me to get back into it.

Here's my first test ride with some self shot footage using the contour 1080p taped to trees or set up on the back of the ute and stuff.

Ok this is for everyone who is keen to help us build the new DH trail off Hassans walls.

Some of the consent conditions are very strict so our main guys need to be inducted by Andrew Macleod from SEEEC in regards to the soil and sediment control measures that need to go into the construction and maintenance of the trail.

What to bring
Good footware, long pants recommended, food and water.

Not sure if we will be able to actually start digging but bring the standard trail tools just in case we get the go ahead.

Hassans Wall Rd Hill Climb

Hassans Walls
Exact Distance: 
2.8Km

Lets face it a group ride up Hassans often turns into a bit of a race but it's hard to keep that intensity when you are on your own.

Here your chance to keep a record for pushing yourself.

The challenge starts at the wooden Hassans Walls reserve sign near the first speed bump before you get onto the dirt and finishes at the (broken) sign on the left of the top intersection.

Thomas from the Lithgow environment group is planning a cleanup of Hassans Walls lookout and using our race as a motivator to get people there
"It is six months ago since we had our last action day at Hassans Walls. Since then Tim Johnman and I have replaced the broken gutter of the first hut and I have received some compliments about the work done at Hassans Walls so far. I still have the paints to finish off this hut. I thought we should get it done before the NSW Mountain Bike Championships at Hassans Walls on 11th July.

Hey all it's been pointed out that having old results available to compare times might be interesting

As the tracks are forever changing it only a rough indicator but may be of interest.

Anyway there here they are... Mostly
