Was that Treehugger in the first vid? :lol:
Nicely done in 2nd video though, hope your mate's shoulder was ok after the gap attempt.

Haha, no, no Trees were hugged in the making of that vid :lol:

XRay came back clear with a diagnosis of "Soft tissue injury" but I think it'll be a while before we see him back at work Sad

Cheeky sod! There are so many things wrong with that: Saddle up too high, toes pointing down, weight too far forward on take off and landing, failed to push bars away on hitting the lip resulting in body smashing forward over the front, bike not realy suitable-looks like a hybrid?

You'rs looked ok Johnny, just lower you're heals as that will help to stop body weight pitching forward on landing.

Cheers, getting there with the heels thing, I'm nowhere near as bad at pointing them toes down when in the air as I used to be.

Agree with everything you said about the other guy I said the same things to him after his first crash but he just did the same again on the second attempt, although his bike's not a hybrid it's a 29er.

Correction, XRay has been reviewed, radial head fracture. Sad

I went there a while ago with the army & a Stanton demo day, before it was officially opened. I thought those drops in the video were for rolling in on, not jumping, after all your jumping to flat from about 4ft not good on a hard tail!!
It was fun but would say Surrey Hills is more fun. Certainly impressive to think those XC boys are riding the course on XC bikes with saddles at full height

Thanks for posting the reviews up, nicely done. I must admit this wasn't on my list of place to ride but it does look fun, in you could go with a group of mixed abilitys and all get something out of it. Perhaps a sketchy Olympic race day out is needed?

I've been wanting to go here for some time with it being near by partner's family, and finally next weekend will be going. I was thinking "oh yeah I'll be doing the black no problem" but after having a read on their website, and looking back on the posts here, I'm not so sure. The one metre drop on "Triple Trouble" sounds a bit daunting from the description <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://hadleigh-park.co.uk/ride/track/">http://hadleigh-park.co.uk/ride/track/</a><!-- m -->

But I guess there's plenty to build confidence on :-)

I found triple trouble terrifying...

I did the middle line loads of times but the right hand line still scares me too much...

One day I'll conquer it... And the gap jump... But as my mate broke his arm in 2 places on our last visit I've not returned.
