More un-ridden dh tracks.

If you go down to the (different woods) today you might (if you look hard enough) some more DH tracks.



On yet another trail search mission we stumbled (with a good tip off) across yet another hardly ridden DH track. This time on Exmoor. (That's all ya getting for location for now.)




Both tracks start with this little shore launch, then split. It all looks very fresh and well made.





One track heads off through your usual rooty woodland stuff with a few berms etc. Then heads into this clearing and some fatter drops and bigger berms. We never made it to the bottom. Got to be well over 3 mins top to bottom.




The same shore as above, this drops into a big fat LH berm that you can really pin.





On the right hand split at the top it's more DH territory. This is the jump line over Skams head (minding the paunch) or you can wimp out and go around to the left then switch back right and left agin by Skams feet. It carries on down the hill like this, very steep and rocky with some cool step downs and rocky rooty corners. A few more shore drops near the bottom. A nice long fire road would make for great up lift, as its a long walk from the end. A good 20 min oush on a DH bike. If we can find out the builder/ owner I will post the location. Unless some one can tell me.

Stoke woods update

If you go down to the woods today, you will find (if you look hard enough) a new section of berms and jumps coming together. Basically its a few berms linked up with some pump/jump type lumps in between. Fun though.



Looking down on the new section.



Skam rails one.



Wot you want? Skam heads up for another one.





Loving his new Quake and the soft dirt.




Home time.

More to come on 3bsports

Lots of 3bsports updates to come in the next few days. Just getting some shots back from a few people.
Updates will include the Dual Slalom show down that we did over the bank holiday. Not too many in attendance but a good laugh and cool to meet some new people.

Lots of new trail and track updates. We have been on the search again and come up with more trail gold! Some long and race ready DH and some not so well hidded local big berm action!

Plus new ride updates now my new DH bike is done. Had a little test on it up at Stoke woods last night. Just a few tweaks needed but feels pretty tight.

Will update asap.
